Hang Ten (See Jane)

Equipment dress, H&M belt + shoes, Elizabeth and James sunglasses, Rebecca Minkoff bag, c/o Town and Reese bangles
I can't remember the last time I owned anything Hawaiian print.  Oh wait, yes I can--I think I had a pair of Abercrombie or Old Navy board shorts in jr high.  Suffice to say, it's been awhile since I've dabbled.  I found this shirt/dress on Revolve last week and was inexplicably drawn to it.  I don't really think it's my style but sometimes it's best not to question your taste.  I'm glad I went with my gut; I've had it since Monday and I've already worn it twice (perhaps the heat is affecting my memory). On Tuesday, I tucked it into a pencil skirt for work and yesterday, I wore it in its true dress form to see Andrea again and to meet Lisa and Sandy.

Notice how wonderful the pictures are again?  It's all Andrea.


Extreme closeup! Really, I just wanted to show my new favorite shades.

This dress is amazing on you!! Absolutely love it! And again, the photos are incredible!! Andrea is a talented lady! Glad to hear you're getting good wear out of this gorgeous dress - so perfect for summer, and loving the sunglasses & crossbody bag, too!

Mrsink said...

Oh I love it! I'm a sucker for reds and whites and I think that Hawaiian print is really subtle and much better than the short sleeve, button down Hawaiian shirts my dad wears. :)

Super cute! I love equipment! I have a couple newer tops, but it is just too darn hot to wear them - so they are waiting for fall - this dress is great! Love shirt dresses! PS_ The glasses rock!

Ashley said...

You are taking me back with the A&F Hawaiian shorts... I had a pair, too. Navy blue and turquoise hibiscus flowers, if I remember correctly. :)

Beautiful dress. Love the belt and shoes, too!

That is a great dress on you - it's Hawaiian print but not in an obnoxious way (sometimes Hawaiian print, or maybe it's the people who clothes themselves in it) can be obnoxious....but not this!

LOVE those sunglasses they are so cute!

audrey said...

LOVE those shades, and that dress is perfect on you - great and summery. the print feels kind of vintage, which i think saves it from being overly HAWAIIAN PRINT, if that makes any sense. love how you styled it!

Taylor said...

Loooooove your style, girl. Keep the outfit posts coming.
