Those were the best days of my life.

Aloha! Today's title is from "Summer of '69" by Bryan Adams.

I got this dress when I went to Hawaii 7-ish years ago. I recently found it again in my closet and thought it was perfect for a warm summer day. (And by warm I mean extremely hot. This weather is killing me!) I added the belt to give it shape and the vest to give it edge and to add my own style to it. In case you haven't noticed, I love this vest. :)

As to my purple streak, it came out as a darker purple than I wanted. You can't see it in the pictures because the streak was really small (so it could be easily hidden if it didn't look good) and it faded really quickly (even though it was supposed to be semi-permanent). I think I'm going to buy some Manic Panic dye and redo it plus add a few more streaks. Anyone with colorful hair dying experience care to share some tips?

Anyway, here's my outfit pictures. I finally mastered taking jumping pictures (cliché, I know, but still fun) with self-timer :)
I'm wearing:
-dress from a trip to Hawaii
-vest from H&M
-hand-me-down belt
-my mom's sandals (sorry you can't see them that well)
-black jelly bracelets from Hot Topic
-various other bracelets (I forget where they're from. sorry!)

P.S. I'm thinking about changing my layout. Any suggestions?


  1. Your dress is so lovely! I totally love Hawaiian prints on pretty dresses.

  2. you look stunning as usual, I love those tassles, at the end its so cute!!

    I went through a crazy hair color phase. I bleached my hair (because mine is waaaay darker) then used blue manic panic, it worked the best for me. and I know you might not want it super dark but the light ones are so thin they fade super fast. Get the darker and it will fade lighter.

    I hope that helps, and the layout, if you change it just keep it "you". :)

    have a great weekend girl :)

  3. Nice post, like it.... keep blogging.

  4. Love the dress. Be careful with bright colors of Manic Panic. It bleeds really easily and can tint the rest of your hair a bit. And definitely use gloves. Happy Coloring!


  5. ahh you're so lucky you got to go to hawaii! i would love to go. that's a very cool and summery dress!
