I’m ready for a break in the weather. How about you?
I know we had a little cool down this week, but I would rather it rain. The past few days I’ve dressed in clothes (or accessories) that I feel are meant for the tropics.
I thrifted this Old Navy striped and solid orange dress earlier this year. I picked it up for $2.25 (it was on sale for half-off.) I wore a light gray sweater for the air-conditioned office and accessorized with a wide black braided belt, black espadrilles and a fedora straw hat.
I also thrifted the multi-color pattern NY&C dress for $4.50. I accessorized with some silver bracelets I found at a yard sale for $.25 and some silver rings. I wore a pair of green Thom McAn wedge sandals I got for $3.
To me both looks remind me of the tropics. The fedora and espadrilles are something you see in resort wear and the print dress reminds me of a mojito. Actually both outfits make me think of Cuba. Maybe because I would like to one day visit there. Currently United States doesn’t allow Americans to visit the country 90 miles off the coast of Florida unless they have a license for a specific purpose or take educational trip.
Either way I still plan to get there one day. I’ve never been anywhere “south of the border” and I would like to visit some Latin countries. I think the culture, food, drinks and people fascinate me. I guess you could say I have a “taste for the tropics.”
Anyway what do you think of the looks? Which one do you like best?
