I think my need for a tropical vacation is starting to kick in, because I can't stop wearing this Hawaiian shirt lately!  A little while back, I shared a fun dressy look with the same shirt (you can check that out here), but today I wanted to show you a more casual option.  The whole outfit actually started with these great wedges that OnlineShoes.com sent me.  I absolutely love the bright coral color and I knew they would be perfect with my tropical shirt!

Three other fabulous bloggers were sent the same wedges and we are competing in a contest to see who styled their pair the best.  If you have a second, I would LOOOOOVE if you could vote for my Online Shoes look! It literally only takes one click and it would mean the world to me!  Plus, you have the option of entering your e-mail address when you vote, which will enter you in a drawing to win your own pair of Rockport shoes!

I love incorporating color into my wardrobe, which you probably already know if you read this blog!  Spring is the perfect time to start making my closet fun again and Boden is helping me to do just that, with the addition of a few colorful pieces from their latest collection.  The striped tee I'm wearing comes in 8 colors and I may have ordered 3 of them....I couldn't help it!  They are so perfect, because they are a classic pattern and I know I'll be able to wear them with almost anything!  So, be prepared to see a lot of stripes on this blog in the future.

This floral scarf is another amazing Boden item that I'm obsessed with.  I've mostly worn it around my neck, but I thought it would be fun to try out the headscarf look that's so popular right now.  What do you think? One of my friends told me I look like the Chiquita banana lady...so, yeah...I'm not 100% sure yet. 

Also, can we talk about how I've always been scared of pattern-mixing?  Florals and stripes is one of my favorite combos on other people, but I've simply never thought I could pull it off.  If you are a scaredy-cat like me, try wearing a floral scarf with a striped top (or vice versa).  Then you can work your way up to mixing main pieces, such as this skirt with this shirt, or these pants with this top.  Boden makes it easy to fill your closet with fun, but most importantly WEARABLE clothing that is made to last...I'm sure I'll be back for more items from this great British brand!
