Vintage Love: Hawaiian Florals
Chicago weather can be frustrating at best. It's 80 degrees in February and then 40 degrees in March, how does one adapt? Well I think that Spring is finally here! (I hope.) In the week that it was 80 degrees here, I started dreaming about Summer and the beach and all the fun that comes with that. I love the old 50s and 60s Hawaiian patterns that were so popular for the summertime. Hawaii was such a romanticized place and I guess it still is, but you hardly ever see such happy and colorful ads for it anymore. I love looking at vintage Hawaiian print dresses and thinking "Did people really wear those out in public?" Some of them can be very over the top. Still fun though!
