Outfit # 45 of my 6-Month Challenge

It was raining balls today, so we had to take indoor photos. I look ridiculously tanned in these shots. I blame the lighting. My husband remarked that I look like an island princess with the dark skin and the bright floral skirt. I'm not complaining.

All the talk about tans, islands, and flowers makes me wish I was in the beach right now, dipping my toes in water and letting my hair loose. Instead, my hair is a frizzy Hermione mess. But! this song always brightens my mood!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I know this song very well! My six year old did her dance recital to this song last year! It's quite a catchy tune :)

    Your pink skirt is amazing! Love it :) Heather

  6. You do kind of look like you belong in Hawaii. Maybe a Hawaiian office building because you ARE wearing a blazer after all, lol. I like it.

    Sometimes I think I am odd for this, but I don't have music that makes me happy/sad/thoughtful/whatever. I am more a TV/movie person. When I am sad I will watch something like Kiki's Delivery Service. Movies with a happy message cheer me up.

  12. I know - with the dreary weather lately I have been fantasizing about Hawaii with soft sand, warm water and pineapples! I love how your lipstick color kinda mataches your skirt. Such a unique and beautiful belt. Your hubby is right - you do look quite tan in these photos. Oh the joy of taking indoor pictures. Have a great day!

  16. Laura, all you need is a tropical drink, one of those flower necklaces and grass skirts and you would totally look Hawaiian! HAHA Your color looks great girl. This outfit is super sweet. Love that printed skirt and gold accents on that buckle. The grey top and pearl accents. LOOKS FAB! :D

  18. I love your belt! I have only recently decided to try using belts for purposes other than simply holding my pants up (i.e., to look cool!) but I suck at it.

    And since it's October, I always make it a point to listen to the Monster Mash as many times as possible ;)

  22. I love the skirt. L.o.v.e it. I don't know if it's the music of your favorite song playing in the background as I look over the outfit or what but I am totally feeling the hawaiian vibe. That is an awesome song for a pick me up. I can't think of a pick me up song right now. I think my brain has melted from cupcake making all afternoon. I think I'll just listen to yours some more. xoxo

  31. I love that song-- it's so much fun! Did you see the documentary called "The Boys" about the Sherman Brothers (who wrote it)? They wrote a ton of all those great Disney songs together, but actually can't stand each other. It's pretty fascinating.
