I am hands down the biggest fan of Hawaiian prints. From tropical art pieces, to tropical home decor and clothing, you name it, I LOVE IT. My obsession is unhealthy at times especially when I am on Pinterest... Sorry future husband, our house will be tropical galore.

Recently, I came up with the idea of starting a #DMDHAWAII section on my blog. I wanted to share with you babes my way of styling a cool Hawaiian printed shirt! Whether it's a vintage men's shirt or womens, I'll be posting a blog every other week featuring a different button up. 
When I went thrifting with my friend Jamie the other day, we stumbled upon this men's printed button up that I immediately had to buy and that was the moment that I knew, I had to start #DMDHAWAII. 

One of my favorite places to wander to in LA is Melrose. There's so much culture, fashion and amazing art, it's definitely an area that everyone should check out. Melrose doesn't only have adorable little shops and coffee shops but the homes are beautiful as well. Every building is unique in it's own way. 

 On this chilly day, roaming the streets of Melrose, I decided to pair my shirt (let's be honest- it's a dress on me) with my favorite customized denim jacket from Live Wyld
To spice up my outfit a bit, I decided to pair my attire with the most comfortable booties from Angelina Shoetique. I don't own many nude shoes in general, but this was definitely a pair that I had to have. You can also pair these booties up with fun socks... which you'll see me on the streets in LA doing in the near future and I love that I can run around Melrose all day in these babies, with no blisters on my toes.

Living in a small town growing up, Los Angeles has changed me in so many ways.
One of them being, living in a fast paced environment. I mean we aren't in New York, but LA still has it's crazy city moments. 

Where do I begin? THE TRAFFIC (where you spend a majority of your life in your car), trying to fit errands in your busy schedule, squeezing in a quick coffee date with a friend or just trying to get a few hours of Netflix in every week. It's insanity. There's never enough time in the day.

If I'm out running some errands and meeting a friend on the other side of town after, I need my outfit to be versatile. With my busy schedule, I like to dress for every occasion.

One of my favorite pieces has to be the Lia Kimono from Tamga Designs. Not only are all their fabrics sustainable (made from sustainably grown trees with 99.9% of the water and solvents reused in the production process) but Tamga Designs produces their clothing ethically in small batches in Bali (MY DREAM DESTINATION) and the dyes are also eco friendly... Talk about no harsh chemicals rubbing against your skin! 
I have a huge admiration for brands that care about our environment and when you find a brand like Tamga Designs, you need everything from their website asap. 

If you're wearing a romper, dress, denim- the kimono adds a WOW factor to any outfit. The bold color and pattern is so unique that when you put this baby on, it looks like you just walked off the runway.
From shoots, to meetings, to wasting your life away in traffic and of course hitting the bar- I'll be ready for every occasion with this look. 
Even with all the chaos going on, there's nowhere I'd rather be. LA forever... until New York ;)
