OOTD: Green Hawaiian Shirt & Bumper Bangs

bumper bangs 02

Hawaiian and Polynesian inspired prints became very popular during the mid century in the United States. Men and women both indulged in the trend and it has come back in style almost every decade since. This summer Hawaiian shirts were super on trend and I really enjoyed observing how different people styled them.

I have been wearing Hawaiian Shirts a lot in the past three years or so and all of them were found at thrift stores for under $8.00 each.  I normally wear them with high waisted jeans, shorts or with a mono-color dress in place of a shawl or light cardigan. In these photos I am wearing my favorite green Hawaiian shirt. I have some other green ones but this one is my favorite. Green is one of my favorite colors and can be matched with almost anything and the simple white flower print on this one makes it VERY versatile. If you are in to sustainable fashion like I am then you know that VERSATILITY IS QUEEN.  I styled my hair using the  bumper bang technique because I wanted to give the look a feminine 1940’s/1950’s vibe. That’s why I also added the flower and accessorized with cat eye sunglasses and wing tips.

OOTD: Talbots Dress and Embellished Sunglasses

Embellished Sunglasses

These embellished cat eye sunglasses are sold by a vendor at the Santa Fe Springs Swapmeet. They had several other colors but I had already picked out a couple of other styles so only got one pair of embellished ones.

TALBOTS DRESS

I have been having so much luck thrifting lately. I scored these Zara pumps at Crossroads in Santa Monica a few weekends ago and wore them on my birthday. A few days later I found this awesome vintage crocodile skin clutch for $6.00 at the Goodwill! It caught my eye because it matches the zara pumps so perfectly, and also because I am obsessed with vintage clutches. The dress is another Goodwill find.
