Summer Beachy Date Night Look

1000 667 Brighter BOLD by Cara Newhart

Aloha. 

Spending a week on Oahu's North Shore has been amazing. Soaking up sun, watching surfers, sipping mai tais, and eating delicious fresh seafood. As a southern girl at heart, I'm used to getting a little dressed up to go to dinner, even if it is a relaxed beachy spot. Here's one of my favorite dinner looks from our trip to Oahu.

We stayed at the Turtle Bay Resort for our wedding and one of our favorite dinner spots was Roy's Beach House, which is a beautiful upscale casual venue right on the beach. So here's a little more about my favorite dinner spot on Oahu's North Shore plus a little more about this outfit and how to shop it.

Roy's Beach House

The restaurant is open-air and a perfect place to watch the sunset over the ocean. When I say it was our favorite, I'm not kidding: we went 3 nights in a row.

They had a range of amazing dishes and a perfect view not to mention the North Shore has a fairly remote feel compared to city life.  Most all of the upscale dining spots are on-resort unless you drive 15 min to Haleiwa where there are a couple restaurant options and a whole area of food trucks plus a couple great shaved ice places.

This spot gets pretty busy, so if you're headed to the North Shore and want to plan a beachside sunset dinner, you'll need to be sure to make a reservation. The chocolate souffle is a must-have and the pineapple martini was also amazing.

 Also, Turtle Bay has a lot of stray kitties running around. I'm not necessarily a cat person, but they were pretty cute and gentle and didn't seem to be bothering guests. I even made a cat friend during this shoot (see the last photo)

Beachside Style

Let's talk about this outfit. First things first, I love white denim. It makes every color pop and I feel like it makes me look a lot more golden and tan. Since open-air beachside venues can often get a little breezy and chilly at night, these white high-waist jeans were a perfect choice to stay warm but keep it beachy.

I picked this lace top in coral since it's officially my summer color, but it is also available in 6 other colors. I love the lace plus the fact that it's fitted and has cute ruffled sleeves. Oh plus, its under $25. Steal.

For accessories, I picked this embroidered clutch, since it has fun bright colors including coral, which helps carry my accent color though the whole look. This clutch has been linked on my insta for a while, and has since sold out. It might come back in stock so I still linked it above, but if not some other good options are this one (which is under $30) and this one, which is super fun and great if you're not that into the coral.  This one, this one and this one are also good options.

I'm also wearing my favorite wood bangle that I've had forever (you can get a similar one here), and this tassel bracelet from the SUGARFIX collection. For earrings, I'm wearing these (which I totally forgot to take a details photo of) and my shoes are my favorite gold wedges from Lauren Ralph Lauren.
