Dole Whip with freshly sliced pineapples: tasted like literal heaven, if that were a flavor.
I had to take a picture inside THE pineapple, I mean c’mon! Apparently I looked like part of the attraction because Asian tourists were coming up and taking my picture and copying my poses afterward so… 😉

The only thing gloomy about visiting the Dole Plantation was the sky! We went during the middle of the week so we practically had the whole place to ourselves. First we took a ride on the Pineapple Express, which took you on a tour-by-train through the gigantic plantation of never-ending fields of pineapples, sugar cane stalks, and banana, lychee, and cacao trees. We strolled through the plantation garden and found gorgeous hibiscus flowers with blooms as big as your head, and a beautiful Mindanou Gum tree with a rainbow tree trunk. It was so cute and colorful I just had to give it a hug! I also wanted to test my navigational skills out in the Pineapple Garden Maze, which happens to be the largest maze in the world mind you! But my husband and our friends weren’t feeling as adventurous and didn’t want to spend hours lost in a maze! To each his own. But let’s not pretend that my favorite part wasn’t the freshly made Dole Whips though. They were so heavenly my tastebuds are still singing praises.
This outfit was destined for wandering around in perfect weather and heading straight to the beach after. My strappy embellished starfish sandals by Miu Miu are a mermaid’s dream and oh so near and dear to my heart. So much so in fact, that I kept them as near to my heart as possible on the plane to Hawaii. They were in my carry-on because I would have been heartbroken if something happened to them. Ain’t nobody got time for that! This crochet skater skirt looks like it was practically made to be paired with this flowy, buttery soft tank! Unfortunately, both of them are sold out now but I linked a bunch of Wildfox tops & some similar skirts below!
