Crochet + Coconut Palms

cococrochet8

This is the first post of October which may be a strange thing to remark on but October is an important month for Style Smorgasbord because in a couple of weeks on the day of halloween, this baby turns one! Its becoming a toddler :’) and I thank y’all for watching it grow up with me. I’m going to put a stop on the analogies for now but I have some very cool things in store for SS to celebrate its birthday.

I am constantly floored by my unconscious creativity. Woah calm done kid, you’re not that g8. But seriously, I called this post Crochet + Coconut Palms purely because of my shirt and also the palm tree in the background. Then now, as I am writing out this blog post, I see that I resemble a coconut. Amazing. I always knew white and brown was a strange combination but I always figured it was more reminiscent of a chocolate ice cream sandwich or an Oreo. Its funny how I always manage to connect everything together … must be why I am such an excellent English essay writerย or maybe it just means I can fertilise 12 fields with all the bull I used to put in my essays (joke credit courtesy of Yik Yak). Speaking of poor taste, has anyone been watching the Australian Bachelorette? Oh gosh it is good stuff … most of my crew watches it and we all agree that Sam is perfect, most of the guys are forgettable and its pretty obvious who the final 3 are already. I would also like to point out that the wallpaper in the Bachelorette house is beautiful, I think it has palm trees on it. Oh the things I do and do not notice!

Can you imagine the tan stencil you would be able to get if you lay out long enough in this top?! It would be so epic haha. If you’re interested in this top, just go for your normal size. I was worried it would run small so I ordered an M but its a little looser than I personally would like.

    1. Thanks Jess! YES I’ve never watched the Bachelor but I watched one ep of the Bachelorette and I was hooked. Yeah I definitely agree with you except apparently the winner isn’t the obvious front runner so I’m thinking Sash won’t win but at the moment Sam seems very keen on him lol.

  1. Haha I laughed so much at the coconut. You do have a knack of connecting things well together! I really like the pattern of the top, it’s so unique and you styled it perfectly! And yeah I’m a bit of a Bachelor/Bachelorette tragic haha I think Alex is a keeper but don’t see too much chemistry between them…don’t get me started, I can go on all day about the show haha ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Naeun! Oh my god you’re my kindred spirit haha. He actually works for the same company I do :000. I’ve been seeing these interviews about how the final person is a bit unexpected so I’m thinking its not Sasha even though Sam definitely seems super keen at the moment.
