Black Roses

♫Whatever happen to my garden of black roses....♫  What a throwback to the early 90's. Whenever I hear this song, I think of my Sister (when she was in high school) and her friend's blasting the Inner Circle tune while hanging out in her bedroom.  I would annoyingly knock at her door, begging her to let me come in, to hang out.  Of course, she never would.  Yes, I was that annoying little sister that wanted to do/be/copy everything her older sister did.  In a lot of ways, I'm still the little sister that's wants to be just like her.  She's an amazing woman who's accomplished amazing things and who I admire so much. :)

On a sartorial note, isn't this outfit in full bloom?!  Perhaps there is a little too much going on, but I think that's what I love most about it.  Floral explosion!  I was eyeing these J. Brand floral skinnies and also these, but I couldn't justify dropping a nice chunk of change on such a trendy piece.  Then one day while browsing in a local boutique I saw these floral skinnies.  They were the last one and in my size, plus they were such a steal, so I had to get them.  I'm super glad I did.  These babies will definitely be in heavy rotation... or at least until the heat can no longer be beat.  What pieces are you currently swooning for? 

{blouse: Jason Wu x Target | cropped jacket: Moon Collection via Bamboo Sky | jeans: local boutique
heels: MICHAEL Michael Kors | bag: Tahari | sunnies: Rayban | watch: Michael Kors
bracelets: vintage, local boutique, fresh water pearls from Aunt, F21, BR, WMJ}

Love, S

Oh! I'm loving this look. The floral pants are super awesome and so is that floral/rosette jacket. I checked out Bamboo Sky and they don't have the jacket listed. Bummed. :(

Hope you're having a lovely day!

Loving the print AND texture mixing... You're such a pro.

Though i'd probably burn to death if I wore a sweater outside... and it's even hotter in Lahaina than Hawaii Kai! Can't imagine it.

Maybe it's because I have a thermostat control right next to me and I turn it up to 78 or 80 so I don't freeze. :)

with love and aloha, Mae
