Aloha baby

Another week has flown by and I'm thankful for that.  I think I might even be getting back some of my inspiration to create, I guess you could say the haze is lifting.  I am wearing a new to me dress today, that is 100% cotton made in Hawaii and best part I don't have to wear a bra!
 Since you all loved this bag so much I figured it deserved it's first outing.

I don't need any magazine to give me permission to wear sneakers with my dresses, it's just what I like.
Peetee and I were delighted to receive this adorable handmade sock kitty from Gisela.  The eyes are green buttons and the best part about her.
 I'd like to replace both my cats with these:)
I also had a stone pathway added in the backyard.
 Zoe likes it.
This weekend we get an extra day off so I am looking forward to 3 days of whatever I want!  What sort of trouble will you get into the weekend?

Yeah I think you know what trouble i'm getting in!:) You look gorgeous, love the dress and! You know its been winter when I forgot you had tattoo's!

Not planning to get into any trouble this weekend ;) Glad to see that Peetee is looking better every day. That's a pretty cute kitty - and in your colours!

Gosh, that is a wonderful dress - it's hard to find summer dresses that you don't have to wear a bra with, so that makes it even more spectacular. I wear sneakers with my dresses all the time too! Enjoy your long weekend X0

Three whole days of whatever sounds wonderful. You are sunshine in your Hawaii dress with your awesome bag and runners. And I grinned when I saw Peetee looking a little more perky. Have a blast! And I love your sock kitty. Gisela is the best.

Oh, we've got a long weekend, too!
Loved you in that dress, the perfect fit and a gorgeous colour and those ruffled sleeves are just fabulous. Good to see that incredible bag in action and the bad ass sneakers.
Peetee looks very enamoured with his new pal, isn't she gorgeous? The cats will be getting jealous of such a pretty new feline in the house.
Not sure I'll be causing as much trouble as you this weekend, I might save up my bad behaviour and invade the main stage at next week's festival instead!!!
Love you! xxxxxxxxx

Aloha! My hula teacher wore dresses just like that for her performances. :) You look BEAUTIFUL - such great colors on you! I keep looking at your immaculate garden - how you even do that?! I like the organic shapes you go for. The sock kitty is the cutest gift, what a good friend Gisela is! But I also love your Zoe! Look at her eyes!

Peetee is so adorable, he seems to be better with all your love and care! Have a great weekend! I am not going to get into trouble, I hope. :)))

Much love xxx

Aloha to you, you gorgeous wench! You're looking lovely. Can't beat a hawaiian frock for making you feel uplifted. Your garden is looking lovely too, really like the organic shape of your path. Our garden is long and thin and we've ended up with more straight lines than i care for, i prefer your way. Sweet of Gisela to send you and Peetee that pink kitty. Enjoy the long weekend. I want to sleep, eat and do nothing! Xxxxxx

I love the dress, it's so pretty. I have a hideous amount of housework that I can't put off any longer to fill my weekend Bah.

I love what you have done with your garden too.

I glad your kitty has arrived :)

peaches mcginty said...

Don't tempt me haha! I feel like a little mischief at the moment! I'll save it though but in the meantime I will stay happy with you and your gorgeous dress! your new kitty friend is adorable and Peetee looks so much brighter too! your garden looks fab and I hope you have an amazing weekend x x x

Peetee is looking much more himself!!

Love the new dress...it's so Krista

The new stone path is gorgeous! ! So of Peetee will be trotting up and down it.....and "marking" it!!

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

AH! adorable dress! And I'm super jealous that you can go braless!!

Trees said...

What a wonderful dress Krista! I love the comment about sneakers with dresses, to hell with what fashion magazines say. If we listen to them we will all be drowning in a sea of bland black clothing xoxox

thorne garnet said...

Peetee's looking good. That path looks amazing (and like alot of work) Enjoy you days off( I get 1/2 day on Monday.....Yippie!)

Gorgeous dress! I love sneakers with dresses--I usually wear my Chucks :)

cherre henderson said...

You're made for that dress, very pretty. I really love your yard, and your kitty walking on the parthway is really cute too. As much as I like your knitted kitty, dare I say it? Peetee is super cute!

señora Allnut said...

so lovely dress, it looks fresh and it's Purple!!, fabulous!!, and you look gorgeous wearing it and über cute!, and Peete looks über cute too, poor boy!,
besos

pastcaring said...

Oh that dress is a beauty! I'd wear it in a heartbeat (with a bra though - I don't have your phenomenal boobs!)
I am so pleased to hear that the fog is lifting. Peetee looks happy with his new toy (how sweet of Gisela)- the photos of the two of them together are beyond sweet! Your garden is looking fabulous, but HOW can you be mean about the delicious Zoe? Look at her, she's magnificent!
Trouble? I didn't get in any trouble in London, but I did have a ball! xxx

Just discovered your Blog, so much to like, so many archives to trawl through, and I love your gorgeous little dog, not sure what he makes of the new addition though!

Anne said...

Oh yesssssssssss to "no bra porn star" (gotta love Sarah Misfit for that gem!!!) What an amazing dressing with it's wee frilly sleeves and deep frill hem - gorgeous!!!!!!! I'm raving like a loony here, you look so spectacular in that frock with your amazing new vintage bag! Yes to sneakers and maxi's - bugger everyone else! I see you've been planting out some new garden beds around your beautiful, curvy, new path - I'd love to know what you're growing (I live vicariously through other people's gardening efforts at the moment). xoxoxoxoxoxo
