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!!!

xo, Rach

  3. Chottie says:

    Oh my gosh, these swimsuits are amazing! You look great Rach, and your little girl is precious. Thanks for sharing:)


  4. Rach says:

    I am so jealous of your Hawaiian vacations and your beachwear! So cute!

  5. Kristi says:

    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!

  6. 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!

  7. Natali says:

    Awww!! Too sweet photos and swimsuits are wonderful, both yours and babies! :)

  8. Claire says:

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

  9. I’ve been following along on Instagram and Snapchat…looks like y’all are having such a wonderful family vacation!

    What a fun trip. Hawaii is so pretty and I definitely can’t wait for summer!

    XO, Destinee Nicole

  11. Melissa V says:

    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 :)

  12. Brooke says:

    Your vacation looks like so much fun! You and Isla are the cutest beach duo!

  15. Pam says:

    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.

  16. Kristy says:

    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!

  17. Sara says:

    -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

    • Sara says:

      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!

  18. Leftbankgirl says:

  29. Andrea says:

    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

  30. Kblossoms says:

    Beautiful baby and I like your white beach dress

  31. Sara Kate says:

    I swear, you pick out the best bathing suits!! Thanks for sharing all of them.

  32. LOVE that red swimsuit, it is so pretty!! Your little girl is absolutely adorable too. Have a wonderful day! :-)

  33. CCM says:

    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.

  34. Jamie says:

    I love the Maryisa swimsuit! The scallops and cutout make it so unique! Looks like an amazing trip!


  35. Sarah says:

    I’m obsessed with that white dress! You look gorgeous!

  36. Theresa says:

    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.

  37. Paige says:

    I love all of your bathing suits! We’re going on a cruise in a few months, and I think I’m going to have to buy a couple of these!


  38. kelsey says:

    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!

  39. I adore Norma Kamali and Mara Hoffman swimwear. Love all of your looks. And what a cute baby.:)


  40. Monika says:

    It looks like you had a wonderful time!


  41. Happy Monday, Rach! Loving your super cute suits!! That last red piece is just SO darling! Xo


  42. Hayley Larue says:

    The black bathing suit is adorable!! <3

  43. Miss Pippi says:

    I love the last swimsuit. The colour and the cut are perfect!

  44. Magali says:

    I loooove Hawaii, have you try the Sansei in kapalua, delicious and good ambiance.


  45. Pam says:

    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)

  46. M says:

    Love the white dress! So pretty!

  47. Mollie says:

    Absolutely ADORE the black wrap swimsuit! So different and pretty!

    xoxo Mollie

  48. Girl you are making me want to go back to Hawaii ASAP! And Isla is such a cutie!

  49. Brittany says:

    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.

  50. J says:

    Try MonkeyPod Kitchen – it’s amazing! Kid friendly, too!

  51. kelley says:

    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.

    • kelley says:

      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.

  52. Staja says:

    I suggest you guys try Nobu! I have not been to the one in Maui but I have been to the Malibu location. The food is amazing!!

  53. Miri says:

    Beautiful photos! Enjoy your holiday, Rachel!

  54. Jessica says:

    Capische @ Hotel Wailea (amazing italian)
    Monkeypod (for the lilikoi cream pie)

  64. Lucy says:

    Gorgeous swimsuits! I love all of bright colours & classic yet interesting cuts!

  65. Brooke says:

    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!

  66. Riley Kate says:

    Such cute shots – making me baby hungry! You are a hot mama, keep kicking booty!

  71. tara says:

    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!!!
    Xo, Tara

  72. Michelle says:

    Love the red suit
    xo, Michelle

  73. Lis says:

    I love seeing your snaps in Hawaii. I would love to go there one day!!

  74. Vanessa says:

    Gorgeous pictures, dear! <3

    Love your pink bathing suit by the way.


  75. Lauren says:

    I am so in love with each swim suit you are wearing in this post! And Isla is seriously the cutest little chick!


  76. Julie says:

    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!

  77. You have such great taste, I especially loved your classy one pieces!

  78. Madeline says:

    Try Aloha Mixed Plate!

  79. Love the white dress! :) Love Hawaii too!

  80. Jen says:

    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.

  81. Holly Hamilton says:

    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,

  82. Michelle says:

    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).

  83. michelle says:

    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.


  84. Isla’s little swimsuits are so cute.

  85. Paula says:

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
