shaka brah

Imagine laying in the comfiest king size bed, the plush white comforters all rolled around in. The birds are gleefully chirping outside and the waves keep continuously crashing on the shore. The air is humid smells sweet of salt water.. and banana boat tanning lotion.

HELL YEAH, this was my morning..  I'm in MAUI!
(ps. this picture was taken at sunset.. i'm just sayin' my morning was pretty damn incredible)

Before we left on our travels, I had time to finish my crochet shorts. I had seen these in stores and similar ones on fashiontoast & cheyennemeetschanel.. but i wasn't about to fork up $200 to get them at planet blue. So here's the DIY ones I made!

They're even cuter on, and didn't take too long! Unfortunately I had to get out of my PJ's to get more fabric glue, but hey, we all have to make sacrifices. :)

I was in an arts n' crafts mood and had a spare white tee layin' around... so naturally, I tie-dyed and painted. Here's the latest original shirt I whipped out.

While all y'all were at Coachillin (working on a post, collecting pictures from friends currently-- if you've got any feel free to send them on ova!) I've been gathering inspiration for the coming weeks and creating a mood board of sorts. Here are the latest photos/styles/looks I LOVE:
