A Hoot


Whenever I visited my family in Puerto Rico and stayed at my grandmother's house, my mom's little sister would lend us her room for us to sleep.  My sisters and I loved sleeping in her room because she would let us play with her makeup, jewelry, and play dress up.  Another thing I really loved about her room was her collection of owls.  She had tons of owl figurines.  Growing up, I took a liking to owls because it reminded me of being young and my aunt's owl collection.  When I saw that this GAP blouse had little owls on it, I was smitten.  Then when I saw how cute it looked on Beach Chic Style, I knew this shirt and I were meant to be!

What wasn't meant to be...all the dry shampoo I failed to properly mix in my hair...holy gray hair!
