One of the beautiful things about Hawaii, is how blue the water is! At home, our skies are often overcast or grey, so the water doesn’t look very colorful. In Hawaii, the close proximity to the equator, coupled with the crystal clear water, creates the perfect environment for incredible shades of blue.

This blue ombre dress I picked up from Chico’s was perfect for a Hawaiian dinner near the water. It evoked the same shades of blue seen in the Pacific Ocean waters of Hawaii. This blue floral scarf paired with the dress gave the look it’s overall island vibe. This was my favorite outfit of the trip!

I love blue, but I also love dressing in theme with my surroundings. This dress evoked the perfect vibe for strolling on the streets of Hawaii during sunset, as well as dining by the beach.

Since this dress mimicked the ocean blue hues, I wore it for our family dinner at The Fish Hopper. This incredible restaurant is famous for it’s clam chowder and Mai Tai’s. While I skipped the Mai Tai, I did enjoy a cup of clam chowder, which for the record, was out of this world!

The Fish Hopper sits across the street from the beach just a few steps away from our hotel in Kona. It offered a beautiful view of the ocean, and an incredible menu. My scallop risotto was out of this world, and everyone in my family really enjoyed their meals.

As it turns out, they have a location in Monterey! Who knew! So we can re-visit this delicious Hawaiian meal back home. Yum!
