little pink pineapples

    Pineapples seem to be a hot design this summer ... I keep seeing tees and all kinds of things festooned with the fruit. While my husband enjoys fresh pineapple and will buy and cut one from time to time, I rarely ate the fruit (fresh or canned) growing up. A family member spent one summer long ago working in a pineapple factory and thus dislikes pineapple's smell and taste. I remember my dad making baked pineapple Spam once in a great while, and school lunch at times would include pineapple chunks, but that's about as close as we got to the fruit, usually.

    I wore this for Fourth of July and a few days later to run errands. I'm really liking the easy fit of this top! It hasn't been washed enough to see how it holds up over time, but if it doesn't pill, shrink, stretch weirdly or fall apart, I might be tempted to get one or two more. With a cami-style bra underneath for a little more coverage it's outrageously comfortable.
   Have you bought anything with a fun print lately? 


  1. Cute top and shorts. Pineapple is one of those fruits that tastes best when freshly cut, on a warm Summer day, while relaxing in your backyard, watching squirrels dart back and forth. It's as sweet as nature gets.

  2. Ah, what a lovely image, Ally! :)

  3. I used to be obsessed with thrifting pineapple prints. I had a lot of them over the years. That and lemons/limes. I stick to abstract black and white prints these days. Or geometrics.

  4. Abstract and geometric prints play so well with your tattoos, Megan! :)
