Aloha from Canada!



Hey all! Jana here from "small town, BIG SMILE!".  It's rare that I wear tops... I'm such a fan of dresses, but when Hannah offered to lend out this top, I jumped at the opportunity! Even rarer: I paired it with shorts!

I'm not going to lie, I did also pair this shirt with a skirt (you can see it on my blog later this week)... but when I saw the blue details in the print, I had to pair it with my blue sailor shorts! I opted to tie the front to make it a little different from Hannah's styling. I also wanted to photograph it at the beach, but it was so windy that the backyard was a better choice for the day! You can even sneak a peek at our garden! (I say "our"... but really, my hubby is the green thumb in our family).


I have to say, I was surprised by how much I loved this blouse! I actually went online and tried to find something similar. I did find some, but nothing with the same awesome pattern with the cars on it, or in the same colours. Both of which are what I love the most about this top. Such an amazing find! 



I even managed to snag a picture in this outfit (before I chopped my hair off, did you notice??) with Dominic's sportster! This is just one of his motorcycles... not the one we take the road trips with... She's pretty, but not the most comfortable for this "old lady"!! 

Outfit Details: 
Blouse: borrowed from Hannah
Shorts: forever21
Flower: Vintage Box 1947


Hannah, thanks so much for letting me borrow this amazing shirt! If you ever decide that you're tired of it, I call first dibs!! :)

Smiles,

jana

  3. That pastel yellow blouse with its pretty print looks lovely paired with your cute Forever 21 sailor shorts and complements the red colour of your beautifully styled hair.
