Tourist in Heels

April 7, 2012

Easter week (aka Semana Santa) is almost coming to an end. While everyone is flaunting bikini bods with piña colada in hand, I’ve spent it with my family in the middle of nowhere watching movies and overeating. The least I could do is a friendly parody of a tourist through an outfit…

Tourist inspired outfit

Source of inspiration:
typical tourist
Hawaiian shirt: check!
Khaki bottoms: check!
Something heavy around my neck: check!

I skipped the hat because I didn’t pack any and changed the typical chunky, leather sandals & socks for snake print platforms. Forced tied the top for minimal midriff exposure and voilà!

I wouldn’t have noticed if my enraged (so cute) 8-year-old cousin wouldn’t have informed me: people were pointing & giggling at me mercilessly! Was it because I was missing a hat?

My cheesy tropical outfit is an ode to tourists and my way to wish all vacationers a happy weekend!
