Hello beautiful friends! I'm in such a good mood today - it's sunny and warm, The Lovin' Spoonful is on the radio, and I spent the morning looking through photos from my Europe trip last summer (and had lots of good laughs over some of them!). I don't know what is better for the soul than sunshine, good music, and great memories. Maybe tropical shirts?
Introducing my newest shirt fresh from the second hand store. I felt like it must've been my lucky day, as I snatched this little guy up for less than $3 (Tommy Bahama, too - aren't their shirts usually about $100?)
I knotted the shirt to increase the "tropical vibes" even though I actually live in the middle of the big city paved with black top and not one tropical flower anywhere. I played up the pink and green tones in the shirt with a pink belt and green faux-jade jewelry from my great aunt.
On top of that, since I don't own any obnoxiously large flower hair pins, I draped a seashell necklace over my head and pinned it in place. A little Flapper-esque? My hair is getting so long, I can actually feel its weight on my back now (definitely a weird feeling...it's been 3 or 4 years since my hair has been this long)!
This outfit is also giving me vibes of Baby's creepy sister in "Dirty Dancing"... Isn't there a scene where she's singing and wearing a Hawaiian shirt or seashell bra or something? I don't know, maybe the sunshine is going to my head. Or maybe I just need to re-watch "Dirty Dancing." (Yes, I think the second one.)
This weather is getting me so excited for summer and everything that comes with it. In commemoration, I went barefoot (read: I was too lazy to lace up my tennies). My winter-weary feet are used to being bundled up in layers of socks and furry boots. As a result from this brief barefoot alley walking, my feet are cut up and stinging. Time to rub some antiseptic on them and keep beating them up. Summer is here!
Last but not least, my puppy is finally through at the vet (for a few days) and is feeling much better! I'm so happy! I hope that the meds fix him up alright and they can diagnose the issue. Thanks so much for everyone who sent their thoughts over for little Moses. He's thankful for them too but would like to ask that next time you just send biscuits. xx
