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
…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!
