I’ve had lots of questions about my swimsuits and dresses that I’ve been posting on instgram since we got to Hawaii so here’s a roundup of everything I’ve worn and where you can find them!

If you have any good restaurant recs in Maui let us know! We have our favorites we always go to (Duke’s, Kimo’s Mama Fish House) but we’re wanting to try something new!!

Also- thank you all so much for all the sweet comments you leave on my instagram and blog. I’m so grateful for your continued support, it truly means the world to me. Have a happy Monday!!!

  1. Have you done breakfast at Gazebo? It’s pretty small so your group might have to do takeout! The breakfast fried rice is to die for! 5 Palms is great, I LOVE Cool Kat for a more casual lunch/dinner. Leoda’s is amazing too!

  2. Rach, you have a lot of cute suits, so does little Isla!… It looks like you are having an amazing time in Hawaii! I think it would be awesome if you visited other blogs sometime. Especially those who continuously support you!

    I have no recommendations for Maui, as I’ve only been to Oahu… but I hope the rest of your trip is a blast!

  3. Nicks Fishmarket! Beautiful views and amazing food. Also, the Monkeypod is really great and casual so it’s great for kids!

  4. Love all of your swimsuits! Giving me ideas for my next vacation. I really loved Gannon’s on the Wailea side of Maui, or Lahaina Grill if your visiting the other side :)

  5. I love all these looks! I am getting some ideas for our destination wedding next year in Maui. I would recommend Merriman’s in Kapalua, they have a gorgeous sunset cocktail hour and the food is supposed to be great.

  6. Your bathings suits are awesome, and you look great, mama! We love Lahaina Grill for a nice dinner out, and Lahaina Pizza Co. has the best pizza and prettiest view. Have a blast!

  7. -flatbread company in Paia has the BEST pizza, if you’re looking for something a little closer to Kaanapali then Lahaina pizza co is great too
    -the 5 palms in kihei has great breakfast and amazing views
    -whaler’s village has leilani’s and hula grill, both owned by the same company as Duke’s. The fish tacos at leilani’s are so good. For dinner at Leilani’s there is a formal dining room and then a beachside grill if you want something a little more casual
    -honolulu cookie company has the best cookies, there’s one at shops at wailea and one in whaler’s village
    -if you’re planning on doing haleakala, stop in at Kula Bistro- their breakfast is SO good and they have an awesome pastry selection to take with you back to the hotel

    1. forgot to mention I hope you’re having a great time in Maui with your family- I’m living vicariously through your pics as I await my annual trip to Hawaii. Enjoy!

  8. What size is the red swim suit? I’m seeing mixed reviews with some saying it runs small. I would really appreciate your feed back. Thank you

  9. We have been to all the restaurants you mention, but you must try Merriman’s Kapalua. So, so good – right on the water and amazing view. Reserve for right at sunset…beautiful. This was one of our favorites when we were there for New Years.

    Another restaurant that we loved, which surprised us, is Star Noodle in Lahaina. We were looking for something more casual, relaxed and less expensive. It was really good and we would definitely go back. It is very busy and a little small so definitely make a reservation. Get the pork buns and then share a bunch of yummy entrees.

  10. We went to Fleetwoods when we were there on our Honeymoon and loved it! They also have a rooftop with live music and a more casual dining/drinks setting. But the food in the dining room at Fleetwoods was better than our dinner at Kimos! I also heard Hanu and Mala are good.

  11. Lahaina Grill is a sweet little spot – the design might be a bit better than the food… But the food is still delish! Very romantic and lovely spot close to where you are!

  12. If you like sushi, try Sansei’s. They have the freshest and most delicious sushi I’ve ever had. (You definitely need to make reservations though)

  13. We LOVE Monkeypod Kitchen! Cool and casual. Everything on the menu is delicious. Star Noodle is small, but the Asian Fusion food is to die for.

  14. If you haven’t tried Paia Fish Market. It’s worth it. Don’t let the looks fool you….very rustic but the fish is SO good. Another must for me is Sansei. If you like sushi, you’ll love it here.

    1. Couple more I forgot. Last year we loved Hula Grill. It looks so touristy but the food is great. Seahouse up in Kapalua is a favorite for b’fast or lunch. We love Pineapple Grill up there too and have had wonderful dinners/b’fast. Finally, no visit to Maui is complete for me without dinner at Merriman’s.

  15. A few of my favorites are Merrimans, Spago, any of Bev Gannon’s restaurants, Monkeypod, Paia Fish Market (lunch spot), and of course Mamas (my favorite).

  16. You have to try the gazebo! Its up in Napili and seems weird.. I am pretty sure it is the restaurant to a little hotel up there. Go for breakfast and get the pancakes (try all the flavors and share with each other) My favorite is the white chocolate macadamia nut- you haven’t lived until you have tried one! I swear its the food we will eat in heaven! Not kidding. haha! There is also a great beach in a Napili with great rentals body surfing and snorkeling- all those little kiddos would love it! We always see turtles in February up there. There is also an awesome blowhole and “love rock” in that area that I am sure you would love! WE LOVE MAUI! Especially in February!

  17. I am so happy you posted this! I have been LOVING everything you have put on instagram & your snaps too! You have the cutest little family! One of our favorites in Maui is Star Noodle- best asian food you will ever taste. Its a small place so definitely call ahead for reservations! Have so much fun!!!

  18. Great photos. I LOVE Maui. Try Leoda’s. They have great food all around and amazing baked goods! It’s not fancy, it but it’s oh so delicious!

  19. Star Noodle in Lahaina for sure, one of the best chefs in Hawaii! Mala on Front Street in Lahaina, and totally agree with everyone who says Monkeypod, although now you are on the opposite side of the island for that. The Hyatt Regency just down the beach from you has an incredible luau too.

  20. Rach,
    Your photos make me long for a return to Maui! The last time we were there, my husband and I were introduced to Sorrento’s On The Beach in Kihei. Amazing Mediterranean food with an appreciation of Hawaiian ingredients. The restaurant is situated steps from the sand and sunsets are unbelievable.
    All my best,
    Holly

  21. I love all of your great outfits for hot weather!! And I love your sincerity! I like how you make your posts yours and show your gratitude. I feel like you truly enjoy what you do and don’t do it just for the money and free clothes!! (unlike Ivory Lane’s who is completely generic, vague, and never shows appreciation).

  22. Just want to comment on how amazing you look! It’s hard to believe you just had a baby! Your family is adorable and your trip looked beautiful.

    xoxo
