In the spirit of Pasifika Festival this weekend we picked out five festive dresses and shot over to Hawai'i. Hawaiian Airlines has recently started a direct flight from Auckland to Honolulu which means Air New Zealand are offering competitive prices! With this approaching Winter weather I suggest you plan an island trip to soak up the sun. On the other hand, our Summer days have not disappeared yet, as we have had some stunning blue sky days here in Auckland recently.

We had a lot of fun taking these photos, jumping around to different spots and taking advantage of the golden hour. Hawai'i is especially beautiful at this time, as you can see from the photos below! If you go to the island of Oahu I suggest spending the day at the North shore, then picking up a poke bowl (delicious local favourite) and driving back around the Windward side of the island. For the first time Pasifika will have a Hawaiian village and I am very excited to see what it will be like!

Aloha to Austin Kino for taking the photos and to Waffles, Nig Nog and Speedy (the chickens) for allowing us to photograph them. Out takes from this shoot will be on our Instagram.
