Outfit: Vintage Hawaiian Pattern Mixing

Vintage Hawaiian dress pattern mixing

I felt this vintage Jams World Hawaiian dress calling to me from the rack at the thrift store. It whispered that it had secretly been made specially for me. I was skeptical, but trying it on only confirmed that yes, in fact, someone somewhere had actually lovingly constructed it just for my body. For reals. Here's some more pictures:

The pattern mix is what drew me to this dress, because you all know I love a good pattern mix (like here and here and here...and here and here) I knew when I saw it that I had to have this beauty. The skirt has this fabulous neon floral print, and the top is the more earthy stripes and polka dots below. Stripes, polka dots and florals? I'm in love!

Neon pink bubble necklace! I actually made this necklace myself, Dude. Who wants a tutorial? Keep looking for it in the next couple of weeks and I'll show you how to make your own neon goodness!

This bag was thrifted on this trip here, and it was only $6! I love this bag, everything from the cross body strap to the fold over clutch style with the leather triangle. As much as I love it, I haven't worn it as much as I would like, mainly because it's such a bright color and I have an innate fear of bright colors. Since this dress practically screamed on its own, in comparison the bright blue bag is practically a neutral.
