True blue, baby I love you

The house smells delectable right now.  There's yellow cake baking in the oven.  I'm making a tres leches cake for tomorrow.  Have you ever had tres leches?  It's like a piece of heaven in every bite. Mmmm.

I got this top the other day at a local boutique, Mahina.  I'm still very much drawn to anything with stripes and the fun cutouts on the shoulders add to the quirkiness of this top.  The hemline is what hooked me though.  I love the tail. :)  If you're looking for a top like this (and you don't live here on the island), you can actually get the same top on Nasty Gal.  That's right, it's the exact same top.  I got mine for half the price that Nasty Gal is selling it for, but $38 is still a deal.  You can also find this bird print wrap dress that I wore in this post on Nasty Gal.  I got mine from Mahina.

Love love this outfit - so stylish, because of everything you mentioned: the stripes, the cutout but especially the hem!

And my favorite cake in the world is yellow cake. But I've never tried tres leches, but I just googled it ...looks delicious!

I'm finding myself falling in love with blue all over again, even though I stopped wearing it so much long, long ago!

Stripes are such a perfect theme for the sunny weather in Hawaii, too!

I love it.

Thanks for the heads up on the dress at NastyGal, it's on sale, in my size!!

XX.
Mae Lu, thereafterish.
