It’s been a while since I wrote a post on Zully’s Closet. There’s been some exciting changes in my life, and I’ve been a very busy girl. For example, I recently moved to Maui! There’s much to learn about my new home and surroundings, and the more I learn the more I love it here.
First, while Maui has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, going to the beach is not the only thing to do on this amazing island. One of the things that I stumbled across is a place called “Up Country”, which (to locals) means any one of the adorable towns located along the side of the Haleakala Volcano (yes, volcano!) Taking a break from the beaches and ocean, today I went to pick strawberries at Kula Country Farms, and (as incredible as this may sound) this is something that I’ve never done before! Kula Farms is a cute little farm that has been growing berries using sustainable agriculture for four generations, and they grow the most delicious strawberries I’ve ever had.
Well for the occasion, I decide to dress up a little. I picked my Kate Spade Strawberry Tossed Berry Shirtdress along with the new Picnic Perfect 3D Wicker Picnic Basket, and (of course i have to be comfortable so) I’m using my Keds X Kate Spade New York Glitter Sneakers.
Getting to Kula is very easy, but something that i noticed is that the weather is a little cooler there. It is winter here on Maui, but “winter” here is very different that in the mainland and even San Diego. Here it could be rainy, windy, and cloudy; but here it’s always hot (or at least for the time I’ve been here.) Being at a higher elevation along the side of Haleakala affords a lower temperature and respite from the hot sultry beaches down below. Another perk is that you can go and pick strawberries all year long.
For this outfit, I decided to dress it down with the glitter snickers. The dress is made of high quality polyester, which means that it is very easy to take care of. The picnic bag is very well made, and it looks like a real picnic bag but with (of course) the cute Kate Spade touch. It has three strawberries along the side which gives the picnic bag a nice little twist. It also has some adorable little ants walking along the top of the bag and handle. I do have to confess that these cute little guys were the reason that I fell in love with this bag!
After a fun days of playing in the strawberry patch, I was able to walk away with some of the best strawberries that I’ve ever had! Want some? 😉
