The Tiny Heart: Raisin

5.08.2013

Raisin



Maxi-Old Navy, Floppy Hat-c/o Dorfman Pacific, Scarf-Amazon, Spiked Bracelet-c/o Estarer, Sandals-Target

I have this neighbor that I call a "raisin". She tans so much that she basically starts looking purple and wrinkly halfway through the summer. The other day I was walking Oliver and I noticed her sitting in her driveway in the beach chair, tanning herself. It was maybe 55 degrees out. I enjoy a natural tan too, but yikes! Poster child for skin cancer. I'll be wearing my floppy hat all summer long while she starts morphing into George Hamilton.

  23. Yikes on the neighbor! There was a lady who worked out at my old gym who was like this. I never understood how she thought it looked good, or healthy for that matter. Love this maxi today and the hat is fun too :)

  24. I'm jealous of your dress! It makes you look tall! I've been on a hunt for a maxi dress that's a good length, but I haven't found one yet. Is that a petite one?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Omg you just described my neighbor to a T!! He also sits in his driveway (and faces my yard for optimal skin roasting rays making it oh so comfortable for me to go out there and do yoga), and will be outside even if it's cold. As long as the sun is shining, this guy is pumping himself full of UV rays.
    Anyway. You look completely gorgeous!!! The hat is perfect for you!!! And the maxi is also awesome...ON has some great ones this season!

  26. So sweet. I love how much of a statement the scarf makes against the black background. Such an adorable hat on you too.

  27. I love the maxi dress! I don't have one that cinches in at the waist like that and it's such a flattering look. And I'm with you on the skin cancer front. I'm covered in spf 55 daily.

  28. I fake bake sometimes (shameful I know), but I don't do it often as my skin is pretty dark naturally (I just like the warm and quiet, even if it's for ten minutes) because I am always afraid of that. I LOVE this maxi Sharon and this hat and scarf are a cute edition!

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOL some people are addicted I guess!

  46. oh Sharon! Prunes could be another term, huh? I love your hat and you are so smart to use it! I have little teeny pre-cancers on my nose that I have been treating for years with a Rx from my Dermo Doc. Cancer and Sunning go hand in hand, that is for dang sure. I am loving this Giveaway, Yup I IS!!!

  59. Whoa, purple? That is taking it overboard! (I'm really scared of skin cancer so I slather myself in spf and I never tan, it just freaks me out and at least it's one of those nasty cancers that you can avoid.) I love this hat on you, you have such a beachy, bohemian cool look going on with with the maxi dress! (And that scarf is just icing on the cake!)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wow you look wonderful in that maxi Sharon....love how you styled everything around that chic hat!!!!

  61. I do not understand excessive tanning...maybe it's because I practically burst into flames if I go in the sun.
