Dreaming of the Tropical Paradise of Northern New York...

Although I'm more of a fall/winter kinda girl, this chilly weather has had me thinking a lot about Ohana Luau at the Lake, a fabulous weekender held in June at the Tiki Resort in Lake George, NY.


My mister and I vowed that we would attend this year. We've got our room reservations made and, as soon as tickets go on sale, we'll have those in hand too. Then there's vacation-time-scheduling and figuring out where Mr. Lucky will be vacationing while his people are away. Preparing for a vacation, even a short one, always seems to be chock full of details to remember

But, of course, one very important part of preparation is finding tiki-rrific outfits to wear! I have a fun orange vintage sleeveless barkcloth Royal Hawaiian shirt, a vintage muumuu by Penney's Hawaiian, and I'm considering taking this tiki-ish print dress along as well...

I still haven't found a belt that suits this dress better than the white one I'm wearing in the photo. Guess I'd better add that to my to-do list.

Here's a close-up of the print... novelty-licious, don't you think?


Now, since Ohana is four days and three nights, I'd like to have a few more swell items to wear. As I've been pouring over Etsy, I've run across so many fabulous tiki, Hawaiian, tropical, and Asian/Polynesian things that I thought I'd share a few with you...

A lovely Ui Maikai dress from Jitterbuggin...


Tropic orange passion flower necklace and earrings set from VintageEyeFashion...


Fabulous Hawaiian tea-timer blouse from WearItAgain...


A terrific red & white hibiscus dress from FastEddiesRetroRags...


A completely adorable coconut purse from BossaCubana...



And a tiki-rrific Hawaiian barkcloth shirt from MomoDeluxeVintage...


Oh, and don't let's forget about tiki mugs, like this collection of eight from AtomicMiss...


Well, that warmed me up a bit - how about you?
Now I really can't wait to go to Ohana!


Are any of you going to a weekender-type event for the first time this year?

Holy smokes! I have never heard of that event- guess I've been living under a rock. And for once it's fairly close! Maybe we'll see if we can get there.

I love you in that dress, too :)

And I crave that necklace and earrings--they remind me of Creamsicles!


Can't wait to hear more about the trip...
