Where the Palm Trees Sway

Today Patrick and I decided to go to the International Tiki Marketplace, as I felt I was sorely lacking in tiki-riffic hair flowers, and I remembered there being several women selling some fabulous hair flowers there when we went last month.

It was unbelievably windy when we snapped these pictures! I’m still getting used to these incredibly windy days that California has every once in awhile.

I was also keeping an eye open for a fresh Hawaiian frock to add to my closet, but there were not many vendors with clothing this time, but my hair flower mission was a success! I bought these two beauties from Fancy Fruits.

After eating lunch at Don the Beachcomber, we took a small detour home to take some pictures of what will become a new series on the blog that Patrick will be writing. So look for that soon!

  1. Your outfit is super cute! I love that purse a lot!
    And haha, I met Nancy last SD Vintage Flea Market! The hair flowers are super lovely.
    I’m sure excited to read what Patrick will be writing!

  2. What a great outfit! I have really enjoyed reading your blog. It sounds like you and your husband are really enjoying SoCal. I went to the Tiki Market today as well – the hair flowers were wonderful! That is a fun event great vendors and totally worth it to stock up on anything-tiki. A great excuse to go to the Don the Beachcomber.

  3. I’m having outfit envy up here in Canada looking at your summer-y pictures. There’s so much snow here…my legs won’t see the light of day for months yet.


  4. That skirt is such a tropical paradise inspired dream of a garment! Love!!! I also adored that you partnered it with brown, my (personal) colour of the year for 2015. How exciting that you and Patrick have a new post series in the works for us. I can hardly wait to find out more!
