What I Wore Wednesday: Island Style

First of all, I want to thank everyone for each heartfelt, encouraging comment about my Pappap. Each one meant so much to me. Thank you. 

For the first time ever, I am linking up with Lindsey's "What I Wore Wednesday". It's a great source of accountability and inspiration! I work from home, painting in my studio all day, and I have a tendency to be super lazy with my wardrobe on this uber casual island. So this week, linking up with WIWW has inspired me to get away from wearing shorts & a boring tee every day. 

Thursday::

what i was doing:: packaging orders and running errands

necklace:: {my girl Moriah with Josiah's Nest}
tee:: {Old Navy}
skirt:: {Target}
Sandals:: {American Eagle}

( I didn't get to bed until 5am Friday because of the tsunami warning. Didn't get any pictures of my pajamas. You're welcome :) 

Saturday::

what i was doing:: a friend's wedding on the beautiful Kualoa Ranch, overlooking Chinamen's hat. 

dress:: {Spool 72}
shoes:: {Target}
earrings (not pictured):: {handmade by my friend, Amber}

Sunday::

what i was doing:: off to church! 

sea glass necklace:: {Aloha Swap Meet}
bracelet:: {Aloha Swap Meet}
tank:: {F21}
dress:: {Charlotte Russe}
sandals:: {American Eagle}


Monday::

what i was doing:: painting, packaging orders, post office run and a bike ride!

headband:: {gift from Katie}
sea glass necklace::{Aloha Swap Meet}
tank:: {uh, it's too old to remember}
cut off shorts:: {American Eagle}
slippers:: {Reef}

Yes, in Hawaii we call those "slippahs" not flip-flops. :)



Tuesday::

what i was doing:: drinking mimosas and watching The Bachelor with girl friends! 

white tank:: {F21}
yellow tank:: {Navy Exchange}
shorts:: {Old Navy}
slippers:: {random store in the Annapolis mall}
bracelet:: {Aloha Swap Meet}

And now as if there aren't enough photos of me on here today and you aren't already convinced I'm a major dork, for some awkward outtakes! 


Oh dear. 

Anyways.... 

I finished up some custom paintings last night (woo!) and can't wait to share them with you tomorrow! Today I am taking a much needed day off and staying out of my studio! 

I'm going to clean my house, go to Barnes and Noble to shop for some new beach reads and search for the perfect birthday outfit! My girlfriends told me they are kidnapping me on my birthday (SATURDAY!!!) and we are going out on the town! I can't wait! 

PS. A big mahalo to my neighbor and friend, Chrissy, for taking some of these pictures for me. And for putting up with my antics. :) 

PPS. I'm the featured blogger on Faith Blogs' front page today! Go take a look and check out all the other amazing bloggers in their directory!
