The town of Kailua is located along the windward coast of Oahu on Kailua Bay and is twelve miles northeast of downtown Honolulu. The name Kailua is translated as “two seas” or “two currents” in Hawaiian because of the two lagoons that create the prolific bay that has become famous around the world. A primarily residential neighborhood, the scenic beauty of charming beaches and picturesque hills has made Kailua Hawaii homes for sale some of the hottest sellers on the market. The local beaches is one of the reasons Kailua is so popular today. Dr. Stephen Leatherman, more popularly known as Dr. Beach rated Kailua Beach as the best American beach in 1998 for its sandy crescent-shaped beach and light to medium waves for surfing and bodysurfing.

However, even more popular today is Lanikai Beach, also a part of Kailua. Not only is the secluded beach hidden along the rocky shore, but the very photogenic view of the Na Mokulua Islands offshore makes for an even more enjoyable beach day experience. The tradewinds help to promote windsurfing, canoeing, and kayaking off of the beach, almost guaranteeing a fun day at the beach. Miles from the hustle of Waikiki, the uncrowded and almost empty beaches of Kailua make it one of the most ideal places to live – especially if you live for the beach and the ocean.

Also known as the Aloha shirt, the unique shirt widely associated with Hawaii and its laid-back atmosphere, it is not certain as to how the Hawaiian shirt came to be. Nevertheless, the shirt, with its iconic vibrant colors and somewhat dreamy designs of plants, the ocean, palm trees, etc., have always been unique to Hawaii. Various tales believe that the shirt designs originated from the tail-out shirts of the Philippines, others say it originated from the elegant kimono designs from Japan, while others say it came from the colorful floral prints from Tahiti. It is more certain that the shirts began to gain popularity during the pre-World War II era when a group of teenagers bout finely printed Kabe crepe material, imported from Japan, in the stores of. The young men had their mothers sew this beautiful fabric into shirts, and the Hawaiian Aloha shirt was born.

Early Aloha shirts often depicted the Orient, with colorful and somewhat mystical designs of pine and plum trees, which represented long life, fortune, and success. Shirts with tiger designs represented strength and courage, while bamboo designs represented strength and flexibility. Other designs include beautiful landscapes, temples, and Mount Fuji. Eventually, the beautiful designs provoked local artists to create their own original designs and sell their own unique Aloha shirts, making the shirt what it is today. Throughout history, celebrities such as Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, and Duke Kahanamoku were known for wearing these beautiful shirts.

I can’t find a shirt to match the Hawaiian Tie Skirt on the Yahoo avatars. There is the plain white V-neck shirt, but it looks weird. They have 2 poses for the skirt so there must be a top that is made to go with it. Have you found something that matches it? Awesome. Thanks!
