Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana!?!
Fairy Dancing in Batiked Blue Vest, Wooden and Crocheted Necklaces, and Golden Kicks
Knock. Knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana Who? Knock Knock. Who's there? Banana. Banana who? Knock. Knock. Who's there? Orange. Orange who? Orange you glad I didn't say banana!?!
My dad used to tell me that joke along with loads of other corny favorites. I guess that's who I get my silliness from. One of his many nicknames for me is Anna Banana. So I think that's also what would make me giggle!
This look reminded me of that joke because of the saturated gorgeous orange color in this bohemian dress.... and because the bag is by Guanabana. Are you picking up what I'm putting down!?! haha! The embroidered dress is from Bondi Markets. There is a lovely boutique, Flamingo Merchant, in there quite regularly with a sweet girl who runs it. The tassel necklace is also from Bondi Markets. Hope you enjoy the handpicked goodies in this post!
Black and White Crop Top and Black Cutoffs
This snap comes from the Charlotte backyard where I grew up! My mom spends so much time out in her secret garden. It's magical. This batiked blue vest is such a statement piece. It's so fun when the wind is blowing. It makes me feel like a little girl experiencing the twirl for the first time. ;-) The vest, blue tank, and golden shoes are all from Anthropologie. The jeans are Paige. The wooden necklace came from a yoga studio in New York City. The brightly colored crochet necklace is from some markets in Melbourne. The jute tassel earrings are from Bondi Markets. PHOTO: Anna Kooiman, Charlotte, NC, Eben Patten Photography
Mint Green Gauze Embroidered Dress, Yoga Beads, Bright Boho Bag, Pom Pom Sandals
Such a perfect look for an evening walkabout around Bondi Beach! Black and white crop top with black cutoff shorts. The crop hits at just the right spot for a tummy peekaboo! The pink ad blue... fun in the sun backdrop is a portion of the Bondi graffiti wall. Local artists show off their talent here and visitors are constantly stopping to take fun pics like these! Cheese! ;-) As for the threads... The top and the shorts are from General Pants. The red lipstick is Estee Lauder. PHOTO: Anna Kooiman, Bondi Beach, Lyndon Marceau
Pom Poms and Tassels Peasant Top
One of my favorite weekend activities in my new home is to go to the Bondi Markets. This dress is from a local market boutique called Flamingo Merchant. I love the mint green color. When I was a little girl my favorite Crayola crayon was called, "Sea Foam Green" - but I didn't think everyone would know what the color actually looked like if I put it in the title of this post! LOL These pompom sandals are sure to get you a million compliments... and girls on the street asking where you got em... If you buy a pair from the links below... when ladies ask.... Tell em' Anna sent you! hahahahah! As for this cute bag... I got it at some markets in Hong Kong when I was visiting my sister-in-law who lives there. And the yoga beads are from a yoga studio in New York City. Below you will find some mint green embroidered dresses, pompom sandals, detailed boho bags, and tassel necklaces all hand picked by me. Enjoy!
Soaking up the sunrise in Bondi Beach in my favorite peasant top. ;-) I can't get enough of pom poms, and tassels right now... and have always been a huge fan of embroidery and the color fuchsia!
