Bright and early, day 2 in Maui involved waking up at 5:30 am, going on a 4-mile hike, jumping into a waterfall, and dining at a sit-down restaurant. Luckily, I had just the outfit in mind that is both functional and (jungle) chic! What could be more practical and versatile than a tailored button up shirt and a pair of rolled up shorts for this adventurous day?
During the day, I loosely tucking the shirt into the shorts and put on my hiking shoes to trek through the bamboo forest along the Pipiwai trail. I also wore my bathing suit underneath so I was able to dive into the refreshing spring water or cool down on the black sand beach at any (spontaneous) moment!
At night, I simply un-tucked my shirt, dressed up the outfit with some key accessories: a chunky necklace (to bring interest to the collar) and a belt around the waist. Lastly, I kicked off my hiking shoes and slipped on my heels to complete my transformation.
One outfit, endless possibilities. With one shirt and one pair of shorts, I think I have achieved an urban jungle look for the day and the night. Can’t wait for a day of relaxation by the beach. Tune in for my Day 3 in Maui!
