WIW 8/10 & 8/13: Palm trees and koi fish (thinking of Hawaii)

You've seen these outfits before but repeats are OK, right? I was trying to think of a way to tie these two outfits together, because I don't like posting singlets of outfits I've posted before (because I'm worried you might get bored of repeats), and I also like to have a theme when I post two outfits together and have them relate to each other. So, these two outfits remind me of Hawaii. First one because of the palm trees swaying in the breeze, and the second because of the koi fish ponds they always have at the hotels. I wore them both to work, on call at the hospital so I wanted something that was very comfy and easy to wear on long work days with lots of walking. Easy breezy!

Speaking of Hawaii, DH just found a great deal on a trip to Hawaii in October...so excited! We'll have to pull the kids out of school for a week, but it's preschool and 1st grade, so hopefully that's OK. It's the only week we can both get off together and since we didn't have a family vacation this summer it will be our only big trip for the year. I can taste the pina coladas already!

    Congrats on your trip!  And fab outfits, I don't mind repeats, after all that's how we really wear our clothes right?  I usually make only one small twek if any at all when I repeat myself.

    Such lovely uplifting colours Natalie. Both are fab. I have a special soft spot for the aqua colours as I love those shades. Great news about your holiday. And now I'm craving a Pina Colada :)

    You are giving Summer a last hurrah!  Great color in both, and good balance of softness and structure.
