I’m not really one for patterns and prints. Stripes and the occassional leopard print shoe are about as bold as I get. However, I’ve got a serious soft spot for Hawaiian print.

I’d like to tell you a fun story about how it started with my love for Elvis’ Blue Hawaii and the beach, but I’m from Minnesota. I know snow (and Prince) better than anyone, which actually might explain why I’m so drawn to this tropical print…

This spring, we saw it just about everywhere (and we are going to talk more about how to wear it soon!) but it was this shirt that really got me. It’s from Saint Laurent and it’s mens– which is actually great becuase the fit is a little bit boxier so you will feel, well, like the king himself. Since it’s May, I’m officially declaring the beginning of Hawaiian shirt season.
