tropicana

tropicana

It's the weekend! I'm not brave enough to take on the Memorial Day traffic, so we're staying in town, but I am going to do a little pre-birthday celebrating :-)  What do you all have tap this weekend?

My mom got this dress for me when we took a sailing trip around the Windward Islands. I get excited about wearing this dress when the weather gets warmer, because the tropical print just screams "summer activities."

Another summer staple - I got this necklace in a boutique on Nantucket a few years ago. I like that it's kind of a statement necklace, but not too big and little bit rustic.

my memorial weekend plans include working saturday, sunday and monday to make up for the ridiculous amount of money i spent today.

the tropical print is brilliant - kinda like an aesthetically pleasing, cool version of a hawaiian shirt.

I love your dress! I just listed you as one of my favorite style bloggers for always picking great outfits that feel gloriously free from whatever the fashion blogosphere is buzzing and agog over.

Happy early birthday!

p.s. re: nudity, haha yes when did it stop being about the clothes? How are they shooting entire editorials without clothes?

Love the thin brown leather belt and the rustic necklace with that feminine dress. Great look.

Clare said...

Dang, you look so summery! And if I come to DC someday, please leave that necklace out for me to "find" and "accidentally take back to Chicago". Thanks.

DaniBrava said...

I absolutely ADORE that necklace!! What a great way to dress up any summer outfit! When's your birthday??

Also, perhaps the promise of flan would convince the hubby to share a slow cooker recipe... lol
