Oh, We’re Going to a Hukilau…

Since this was the same day as the Plato’s Closet sale, I was running 2.5 hrs late as was my bridal shower gift running 2.5 days late. <Sigh> I really need to get my stuff together but I did make it in time for the games which I failed miserably. Haha, sorry Kathleen. Everybody looked so lovely in their maxi, floral dresses with leis all over. These photos don’t do justice to the shower.

Look who arrived the same time I did, in similar outfits too. Haha. I missed youย  Danica.

Claudi and I messing with our grass skirts.

Luau ladies going gangsta. Haha. We got this—Mae, Marie and our newlywed, Josie.

We DO love our prints. Posing with Richelle and Claudia.

Awww…L-O-V-E. I can’t wait for the both of you to get hitched. Sweetness.

WHAT I WORE:

Since I only had 5 minutes to spare, I put on the quickest outfit that I could think of and rushed to the party. I grabbed the best “go-to” outfit for these kind of ย events—a maxi dress and paired it with your basic neutral gladiators to tone down the “floral craziness”. Of course I had to show off the newest add-on to my #DIY head dress collection.

(DRESS: Floral; Wet Seal/ CLUTCH: gold; thrifted from Plato’s Closet/ SANDALS: Diba/ RINGS: Forever 21/ BANGLES: Charming Charlie/ HEADDRESS: my own creation)

A mixture of bohemian, Hawaiian, romantic and ethereal—yes, I’m confused sometimes.

Glad my head dress complemented the outfit

Champagne Gold Clutch

…because sometimes simple (less) ย is more.

Great Gatsby Glamour

CONFESSION: For a month or so now, I’ve been hanging out less with my girls just so I could get used to the fact that they won’t be here in Houston for awhile. Every single one of them except our baby girl (Nikki) is flying to Cebu, Philippines to be there on the Big Day. […]
