Aloha Friday

Happy Aloha Friday Everyone!!

I've decided to go against my normal aversion to the aloha wear legacy.  With the rest of the world jumping on the Aloha print bandwagon, I find myself reconsidering my rebellion of it.  Fashion is about breaking boundaries and reinventing past styles into exciting new ways.  That being said, Hawaiian wear has def evolved over the years and its inspiration is now splashed on the runways of major designer brands.  While locally we cling to the more traditional fits & prints, I really look forward to future of aloha wear locally & worldwide.

I've scrapped the idea of a classic cotton button down aloha shirt for a more playful blouse in a modern digital fern print.  I love the crew collar, shirt tail back, & sexy side slit.  With the Hawaii heat, I thought it appropriate to pair with my new favorite high-waisted shorts.  It's so hard to find WHITE shorts.  Lastly, I'm OBSESSED with my new bag by Poverty Flats & new Dolce Vita shoes.  There are no words. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.  I do want to stress that this uber comfy cute outfit is how I want to dress all summer long...

Trinkets & Treasures….Here's a run down of my teeny tiny jewelry pieces.  Click photos for larger view.

My handbag is by Poverty Flats.  It comes with a clear removable pouch to keep your goodies nice & organized.  I JUST DIE over this bag.  Now how to keep my clumsy self from getting it dirty?!
