my parents live in charleston these days. but for a few years after i graduated college, they lived in honolulu.
now, much like any other tourist-heavy city, the locals kinda laugh at/make fun of the total touristy things visitors tend to do (hello, dc visitors standing on the left!) and the number one omg-look-at-that-total-tourist thing in the 50th state is donning a hawaiian print shit.
but my dad could care less. and even though they lived there for almost five years, he'd still rock one all the time.
come ON dad, jeez.

so with that being said, i'm a little surprised i'm into this kinda kooky, borderline tacky tropical print thing.
but i gotta say that's one of my favorite things about fashion: when omg-that's-so-hideous gets elevated to omg-did-you-see-that's-so-rad status. i like being surprised like that. and i like that this goes beyond just floral.
especially when the shapes and pattern feel so modern like this:

oh man. i love it.
and because everyone deserves to try out trends, these pieces are all under $100.
mele kalikimaka or whatever.

i'll be the one who's twins with her pops.
