Mixing old + new | Hawaiian print dress

This outfit is actually from late July (!), when I had lunch with my good friend and fellow librarian Stephanie right before vacation. Sorry it took awhile for these to make it to the blog! (I also rewore this outfit this past weekend.) It’s appropriate that I wore this to meet Stephanie, because I’m wearing a thrifted, vintage dress that Stephanie then fashion-swapped with me this past winter.

Details:  Red Hawaiian print dress, fashion-swapped with Stephanie {similar}  //  Cream-and-gold sandals, DV by Dolce Vita {exact}  //  Vintage wicker bag, local vintage boutique {modern tote bag option}  //  Cognac stretchy belt, old {similar}  //  Dangly earrings, vintage, made by my grandmother {fun option}

This dress was so comfortable and has such a fun print of Hawaiian islands. And the dress was made in Hawaii!

I decided to belt the dress to give it a bit more shape for my first time wearing. I also mixed old and new with my accessories, the new being my cream-and-gold t-strap sandals and the old being my grandmother’s handmade earrings. Stephanie appreciated the accessorizing, saying the earrings and belt gave the outfit an overall “tiki chic” kind of vibe — perfect for an Hawaiian print dress, right? 😉

    The print on that dress is perfect! I love that it’s not just Hawaiian print, but it’s from Hawaii! Very cool.
