Back From The Boogie

Hello there! Now that I'm back home after our Nashville Boogie trip, life just isn't as exciting, ha. It likes being in an alternate reality when we attend these rockabilly weekenders; getting to be surrounded by many other people who are dressed similiarly to us and listening to music that we all love is a neat experience. I'll post pictures from the trip in another blog post. 
The trip of course went super fast. We were only there for four full days though; we got in Tuesday night and left for the airport late Sunday morning. We had a lot of fun, and I got to meet a lot of new people, people I recognized from Instagram, and also others I didn't. 
We also got to meet up with my sister and her husband a couple of times; they had just gotten back from a ten day honeymoon in Greece.
This trip just makes me even more excited for Tiki Oasis! I talked to a couple of people this trip about Tiki O, and they said how fun it is, and that people are so relaxed and friendly there, which I'm very happy to hear!
In the pictures below I'm wearing my new to me vintage skirt that I got at the Boogie. I love the southwestern/Mexican print on it, and the colors. I'm wearing a petticoat under it, as without one it doesn't flare out much. I of course paired primary colored fruit accessories and shoes with the skirt. My favorite part of the print is the basket of fruit. The price tag hanging off the skirt called this a "Carmen Miranda skirt", and I can see why, with the woman on it with the fruit on her head. I rarely buy skirts, as I much prefer wearing dresses, but I just couldn't pass this special one up.
I actually didn't buy anything the Boogie other than the skirt and a piece of artwork (a tiki print to hang on the wall), oh, and also Charles Phoenix's newest book "Addicted to Americana". I got to meet him, get a picture with him, and he signed the book! He was super nice and easy to talk to. I was a little nervous to talk to him. He puts on such a great slideshow! We've seen two now. I did get some items outside of the Boogie; two super cute dish towels, and a Nashville magnet that looks like a vintage postcard.
