This recent snow storm has really been plucking my last nerve. Not only does it shut every thing down in Virginia it also teases us with a super 65 degree day the day before it dumps buckets of snow. Throw in an additional ice storm & you’ve got a pretty good idea of the recent Virginia weather. To make matters worse you’ve literally got to cover every part of exposed skin or get frost-bitten. Maybe I over exaggerate but when you’re looking at the forecast from the previous year & the average high’s were 60′s + it’s a bitter pill to swallow. Instead of wallowing in my hatred of snow, I’m going to think sun shiny happy warm thoughts.
Speaking of sun shine, last week at an estate sale I found quite possibly the funkiest shirt ever. Even though it was riddled with stains I still put it in to buy pile. It was just too cool to pass on & for $2 I had hopes that the stains would come out. The lady ringing up me commented on how cool the shirt was. Oh it’s pretty cool alright, though funky might be a better word. Once I got it home I pre-treated the stains then used my super secret detergent recipe & threw it in the wash. Thankfully ALL the sweat & brown stains came right out in one wash. Just looking at the shirt gives me that warm beachy feeling. It would be the perfect shirt for long walks on the beach or sipping pina coladas by the pool.
While I was thinking about how I should list it I did a little poking around on Etsy for vintage Hawaiian Shirts. The options of funky retro 50s/60s Hawaiian shirts is limitless. Not only are they super cool but they’re pretty stylish! I’ve picked out a few of my favorites that are currently helping me have warm thoughts. Which one is your favorite? Personally I like bright colors!
