Palm Breeze

Hey there lovely ladies! It's Thursday and I couldn't be more excited for the weekend because it's Girls Weekend!!! My friend and her daughter are coming in for a visit from Boone, NC. We'll be hitting the pool, doing our nails, making some paleo ice cream in my new ice cream maker and maybe some shopping too. Well, for my friend - not for me! (see this post for details on why). As you may or may not know, there is no Target store (quelle horror!) so we typically always make a stop there and/or Trader Joe's. Either way, it's going to be a great time catching up and playing Auntie Jen.

So I saw this shirt on another blogger I follow ( and immediately FELL IN LOVE. I have been a bit obsessed lately with the palm print. It all started with the Lilly Pulitzer for Target sale when I snapped up a pair of the green palm print pants from the floor and nearly squealed because they were my size! Since then, I've bought this shirt, cushions for my outdoor chairs and saw the perfect sized palm plant that would complete my summer living room makeover (do home items count for #nospendjune?). At any rate, in retrospect I think this shirt would've looked better with a pair of white skinnies but these linen pants have been a periennal favorite of mine for about five summers now. I found them in Nordstrom's junior department and STILL had to have them hemmed. I'm quite sure my tailor loves me. Since the pants are older though, I've linked some similar styles below.
