The Thrifty Six Tropical Paradise!

Ahh the tropics and that hot, delicious sunny weather that all Northern girls crave…Le Sigh!  Even if I can’t get to a tropical island for a get-away, I can still get dressed up for that sunshiny vibe anyway!  A girl can dream and play the part even in hot sticky Montreal.  Here’s me with Jamaica on my mind:

I love my colorful beaded dress, and as long as it’s sunny and hot here as well, I feel marvelous styling up this tropical look.  Feeling fresh, colourful and bright…how old is this dress? Who knows- but it’s perfect dopamine styling for me!  Can’t get to the tropics?  Bring the tropics into your styling!

Now let’s see what my fashionable blogger friends are styling up!

I found this green slip dress with a big bold tropical floral
print during a winter thrifting adventure so this is the first chance I
am getting to wear it. It had ties on the sides to cinch the waist
except the ties were oddly placed on the hips. So I cut them off and
tied them in my hair! I styled it with a non-thrifted kimono and
platform espadrille sandals for an easy breezy summer look.

Paradise under grey skies…

This month’s Thrifty Six theme is ‘Tropical Paradise’…

…immediately I reached for these 1970’s palazzo pants in all the vibrant
colours of a parakeet!

Styled with vivid yellow and opulent turquoise, it’s a dangerously
intense look…

…on a sunny day it’s nothing less than resplendent!

I wanted sunshine for my pictures; I waited and I waited but it never
came so here I am on this cloudy day…

…still smiling as my outfit radiates ‘Tropical Paradise’ even though the
skies are grey…

I bought this kimono jacket on eBay years ago but rarely wear it. I
don’t know why because it feels so comfortable and I love the tropical
print. I will challenge myself to find more ways to wear it over the

Since I live in a landlocked state, I didn’t want my outfit to come off
as too costume-like. I opted for this tropical, yet subtle, halter top
that was a hand-me-down from a cousin. It came with a matching flowy
skirt, but I chose to pair it with mom jeans instead (and a subtle
flower hair accessory) for a cute date night look. The matching ensemble
would make the perfect island vacation outfit, though!

That’s what I represent today! Lol. I shall explain. Years ago we went
to Ibiza every year with friends. And in the evenings we always drank
the Mediteranee there, a cocktail of pina colada with pineapple juice.
Every evening my girlfriend and I were looking forward to drinking that
delicious cocktail! And we drank a lot of those!

We often made it ourselves afterwards at home! And look, today I am the
pineapple! The green top is pre loved, bought at Vinted. Beautiful color
huh. I really liked the whole color combination of my outfit!

  1. Lucy, you are absolutely stunning in this dress, tropics or not! Are those beads attached to the dress, or is it a necklace? I can’t really tell…not that it matters! It’s spectacular!! What a fun prompt that was! Enjoy your week! My daughter and her family were just in Montreal! They went to a baseball game and had so much fun!
