With what feels like a never-ending winter, it is easy to constantly turn to neutral or dark colors. Just not feeling all that bright and shiny, ya know? But every now and again, I find it important to force a little color where I can. While I did get made fun of by a number of friends for my Tommy Bahama-esque ensemble, I personally enjoyed going after a Hawaiian vibe. It’s the closest I’ll be coming to a tropical vacation anytime soon, so why not have my own personal luau right here on the streets of New York City…

    So funny I’m taking a virtual trip to Hawaii. It’s easy find the most tropical drink recipe turn up the heat, eat water melon an play ocean sounds on the I pod. Hope the weather improves. You look great.

    Wow this outfit works together so well! I love all the layering, colors, and patterns!

    I really love these pieces together! For some reason the flares are a little unexpected but I love it even more than if they were skinnies.
