Sunsoaked | January Jonesing For The Beach

photo sunsoaked_zps9d3fef34.jpgAfter spending a chilly early December in New York, I was so excited to be back and definitely ready to enjoy the tropical weather again. No more thermals, no more scarves! Here’s what I wore during on one of the days of my island excursion!photo I31B6752_zps03a12c4f.jpg

I like wearing long sleeved shirts at the beach because 1) I don’t like wearing sunscreen because it feels greasy 2) I never liked wearing sandos to lunch and 3) it lets me keep my cool better than when wearing the aforementioned (even a tee so long as the right fabric and color is chosen). Paired with beachscape shorts so I don’t look like such a square!

Make Your Own Havaianas! | 50th Anniversary

Photobucket

Since it was a reasonably leisurely day, I decided to have some merienda with D at Sango in Rockwell.   I have to admit that I’ve missed this quirky japanese burger joint, so much so that I may have over ordered.  

Okonomiyaki dog!  Just look at that katsuobushi on top that gives it just the right amount of umami flavor!  I also had a master cheeseburger but I scarfed that down before I remembered to take a picture.  Oh well, charge it to delicious!

Photobucket

I made these.   Haha, not.

Photobucket

Make your own Havaianas!  At this point I was already really excited to make my pair of slippers, but of course I was playing it cool.  So I briskly walked in (instead of full on charging the first available slipper technician?)

Photobucket

Immediately everyone was served pomelo juice, piña coladas, wine, and various sodas (no, no diet mtn dew Lana) aside from the assorted h’orderves that the wait staff were hawking (for free of course).

sidney probably asking for help with what color combination to get.  seriously, it’s hard when you’re given a choice of what colors and studs to get on your slippers.

my “technician” was Sy, who was super helpful and patient with my odd request of letters.

Photobucket

Yes, my creation will at last come to fruition!

and voila!  I give you my WAVVES x Havaianas “sky blue”/white combination!  In case you guys are wondering, Wavves is an American noise pop/surf punk band based in San Diego, California.  Alright, they’re an unofficial collaboration but I can at least tell my slippers apart when I hit the beach.  No crazy colors but I think it looks summery [sic].  Those little sunglasses are polarized raybans btw.  Heh…heh.. um ok.

Congratulations Havaianas!
