Tropical Daydreaming



shirt: Zara | pants: Banana Republic (on sale!) | heels: Boutique 9 (good deal here, also available here) | clutch: 3.1 Phillip Lim | sunnies: Marc Jacobs | necklace: Forever 21 (very old, similar here) |  watch: MICHAEL Michael Kors | studded bracelet: J. Crew (on sale!) | cuff: B. D’Angelo | X ring: Elizabeth & James | chain “Rebel” ring: Kira Hawaii (via Fighting Eel)

As someone who’s not a huge fan of traditional Aloha or even resort-wear prints, I was really surprised when I was drawn to this tropical printed shirt in Zara’s newest collection. Though it vaguely reminded me of Tommy Bahama and perhaps something my mom would like, I could not help being drawn to the colors. I’d like to think that my recent work-related trips to gorgeous resorts on Maui and Kauai have contributed to my sudden attraction to this very resort-appropriate piece. If you’re thinking of getting one for yourself, you may want to consider sizing up. Since I wanted it to be really over-sized, with the intention of wearing it open over a tank, I bought a large. Hence, the really blousy look. I actually may have been able to get away with the same fit in a medium… In any case, wearing it at work made me wish I was actually wearing it with my favorite white cutoffs and relaxing with a refreshing cocktail and great view. We all daydream while at work, right? ;)

Two tips for my fellow shopaholics/deal-hunters: (1) My ALL-TIME FAVORITE Banana Republic pants are on sale in several fun colors, with an additional 40% off, for Valentine’s Day! They are super stretchy and oh-so-comfy for those long work days. BONUS: The petite length is perfect for those of us smaller in stature! (2) Those pointed toe pumps I’ve been wearing and posted about on Instagram are now on sale HERE! I have hunted for a mid-heel pointed toe pump for a while and these have officially earned their place on my “every day” shoe shelf. With their padded insoles & now super reasonable price, you can’t go wrong!

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, whether you spend it with your significant other, best friend, or family! If you’re spending it solo, I hope you get a chance to treat yourself to some kind of indulgence. ;) Perhaps, a new pair of heels?
