animal-print overload

Xhilaration top, Target
D&Y scarf, Ross
bone necklace, Seattle craft fair
linen shorts, Macy's
        Just a quick iPhone photo because I thought this was pretty cute for a weekend outfit ... who knew that flamingos and animal print mixed so well?
       This top was included in my July budget, but not pictured. When I looked it up on the Target site, I was amused to see that it described as a crop top. It is definitely not a crop top on me! I suppose being short-waisted has its (few) benefits?
       My sis is in town for a little more than a week, which means we spent part of Sunday ambling around the mall. I found a cute pair of pants and a lightweight cotton shirt that I'm excited about wearing. I'm a little bummed that our summer schedules didn't coincide, but as my colleague pointed out, having family in town just gives me more incentive to leave work on time so I can enjoy some quality time at home.
    ** Hurricane update: I am so thankful that my island was spared. Hurricane Iselle did knock down some very large trees and cause flooding and power outages on other islands, so we were lucky to get off so easily - Friday was cloudy and humid, but that was it. The second storm, Julio, has veered far off and should result in larger surf but nothing else.


  1. I'm glad you're having fun with your sis, and I'm SUPER GLAD that your island only got a wee bit of hurricane damage! I don't want anything to happen to my little Hawaiian petal!

  2. I remember my first hurricane---it's scary business and I'm glad you're ok. That being said, I LOVE your top: flamingos can get on my clothes any day of the week.

    Another Beautiful Thing

  3. I've only been through a few hurricanes, but yes, they can be really scary! I don't really gravitate to whimsical animal prints, usually, but flamingos just seemed like too much fun to pass up. :)

  4. Heh, I don't think anyone has ever called me a "little Hawaiian petal" before. We got off pretty easy - power is still being restored to some folks on other islands.
