Tropical Splendor

Maui is probably one of my favorite places on earth- from the incredible restaurants on Wailea Beach to snorkeling in Lanai, I love every moment! Here are some photos from yesterday...
Wearing a vintage silk embroidered cape that I found at Wasteland, J.Brand shorts, vintage jewelry and glass bead earrings, and Giuseppe wooden platforms.
I love the way the way it drapes!
More photos to come!

Karla I think you have an internet stalker, who has nothing better to do than leave hateful messages. I can only imagine the deep seated clinical issues facing this anonymous poster that would make her take 10 minutes out of her day to voluntarily visit your blog and spew hate. Time for her to be charged with Harassment, a Course of Conduct. This is a beautiful outfit. I love the cape, with the short shorts and summery wooden platforms.
