June and July are the most romantic months in my book. There’s no real explanation other than I met my husband in June and married him (years later) in July, and of course the warm temperatures and sweet summer nights add to the charm. This week we’ll be hopping on a plane to Hawaii for a week on the island of Lanai in celebration of two major things: our one-year anniversary and a baby on the way. I can’t think of a better reason to fly and flop somewhere together. Here’s a look at some things I’m taking with me and my fancy new travel gear.

New Valia Gabriel sandals I plan on doing some serious island roaming in. I’ve been complaining on recent trips that I needed to update my travel style, particularly in the luggage department. I came across Hartmann Luggage that makes incredibly sleek and sophisticated hard cased suitcases and classic tweed duffles. I immediately spotted this one that I’ll be packing all my carry-on essentials in.
Beauty essentials I never fly without: Tata Harper face oil, Library of Flowers hand cream, Lip balm, African Botanics Marula Oil, which I use on my hands, face and neck to keep my skin hydrated.
Colorful prints from Heidi Merrick and MSGM. Surfboard inspired jewelry from Kelly Wearstler and colorful bracelets by Ana Karolina. Silky shorts and the Fleur bra from For Love & Lemons. All packed and ready to go: Objects Without Meaning top, Paige denim shorts, Kenneth Cole sneakers, Hartmann luggage c/o, Gladys Tamez Millinery hat.
