Aloha Wear

Hawaii may be known (rightly) for the beaches and the weather, but one of my favorite things about living here is the fact that the thrift stores are rife with vintage merchandise of a tropical nature. I'm a sucker for the laid back quality a tropical motif can lend any outfit, and I like the pastel colors that seem to accompany most tropical themed items.

It's been getting warmer here recently, and I'm looking forward to spending my summer days in breezy dresses (aka chopped off muu'muus) and tops that will keep me cool and comfortable. Any (and all) of these beauties would fit the bill nicely:
