A sweet concoction

Are you sick of seeing me in peplums yet? :)

I reworked an old muumuu to create this little top.  I love how lightweight the fabric is.  The itty bitty polka dot print and eyelet trim at the yoke are great details as well.  I can't help but feel like a little girl in this top, so when I wore it to the office yesterday, I paired it with a "power pump" and a studded bag to edge it up a bit.  I'm hoping to cruise at the beach this weekend, so that I can pair this sweet top with some cutoffs and a floppy hat.  I think I found myself the perfect summer top.

Happy Aloha Friday & Happy Weekend-ing, guys!

{top: reworked muumuu by me | jeans: Bullhead | shoes: Mango | bag: via VJ-Style
sunnies: Rayban | watch: Michael Kors | bracelets: F21, Bamboo Sky, F21, DIY skulls}

Love, S

Too cute with that polka dot top! Love that bag and that arm party you got going on too. Oops, I shouldn't use that lingo, don't want someone trying to sue me. :/

WOOOOOOO. Rocco bag. Is it the real thing, or no? You should buy an ETSIS Hat! I'll make a special discount for you. The hats turn nice and floppy after you wash 'em.

They look good.

You look good.

You're so damn cute. HAPPY ALOHA WEEKEND!

with love and aloha, Mae

Your top reminds me of Strawberry Shortcake - which is a wonderful thing. :) Great way to upcycle a muumuu. :)

Mae Mae!!! Oh how I wish it were the real Rocco bag. Maybe one day... but the real deal is super heavy and I carry so much shit. Did I tell you, once I asked a complete stanger if I could touch/feel/hold her Rocco bag... and she let me. haha. I'm crazy.

I miss u. And hope to see your face next month!

Love, S
