Who Lives In a Pineapple Under the Sea?

I long have been admiring and loving all the pineapple print clothing and accessories that have been all over the place this summer. So, when I came across this tank that had a large, sequined-covered pineapple graphic on it, I knew I finally had to cave in to the trend and purchase this winner.

Well, my excitement was short-lived and quickly turned to embarrassment. As I was checking out, the store employee kindly exclaimed, “This reminds me of Spongebob Squarepants!” I’ll leave it to your imagination to conjure up an image of me giving polite, but sarcastic silent side-eye. Alas, I still left with the top, but now I can’t seem to stop humming the Spongebob theme song whenever I look at it.

pineapple tank: Apt. 9 | denim jacket: SONOMA life & style | white denim shorts: Banana Republic | sandals: Payless, really old (similar) | tote: Old Navy (similar) | earrings: Target (similar)

Shop the look:
!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s); e.id  = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

  1. Stop. People should keep their opinions to themselves right? I love how you styled this with the light chambray jacket and that blush tote! Perfection!

  5. Ohhhh people who have no style yet still make comments! I think the shirt is adorable and i walked past it in Kohls, turned around to look at it but couldn't bring myself to buy it because it wasn't on sale. But you're rockin' it and I wish I had it sitting in my closet also.

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
