i feel a bit like mary ann from gilligan's island in this outfit. she was always my favorite. sure, ginger was a glamorous movie star, but mary ann was not overtly sexy like ginger. she was the girl next door (if you lived on a deserted island) and let's face it, she was super sexy herself. but i don't feel like her because i think i look sexy, i just think the patterns and the colors are reminiscent of something she'd wear. very practical for island living.
i always felt a little sorry for mary ann. she never got a designation in the theme song. there was the professor, the millionaire and the movie star, but she was just plain ol' mary ann. although i guess that's way better than just being the millionaire's wife. do you think the song writers got lazy...what can we say after "the millionaire"? hmmm....how about, "and his wife"? easy peasy. although in the 60s, when this show was on, i guess that was an "appropriate" title. and lovey never really did do anything on that island...she was just a lazy old rich biddy.
but anyways, my outfit. i bought this shirt on a whim at a thrift store for half off. i believe i paid $2 for it. not too shabby. i figure i can wear it all summer with shorts, skirts, leggings. what else can you wear shirts with? (i sound like bubba from forrest gump...you can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it.) i'm all over the place today...sorry, it's friday! so this shirt, i love it. i didn't think i would, but i do, so i will be wearing it tons this summer. look for it featured at such places as garage sales, car washes and picnics!

may i recommend a drink for the patio tonight? one part vodka, two parts san pellegrino flavored water (lemon and orange are my faves)...that's all...it's so delicious!
