By the sea, Mr. Todd...










Navy Cut-out Blouse:  $24  //  Nude Lace Shorts:  $26  //  Sunglasses:  $10  //  Gold Dangle Earrings:  $6  {all bought at Sunglasses, Etc. and Etcetera by Sunglasses, Etc. on Guam}  //  Ring:  $8 {Oasap}Tan Studded Sandals:  Gifted from the Philippines


We spent this past Sunday at a beach down south.  The weather was gloomy and the tide was low so I really wasn't in the mood for a swim but as always, nothing stops my ocean-loving kids from jumping in!  While the kids were having fun, my niece and I had our own little photo adventure so I was able to get some great shots of my outfit that day.

I had actually purchased the sunglasses and earrings last Thursday at this little shop in Agana Shopping Center called Sunglasses, Etc. and the sales person told me that they had opened a new boutique called Etcetera down at the Acanta Mall in Tumon where they sold clothes and shoes too.  Girl, you had me at "clothes"!

On Saturday I decided to haul my cookies down to Etcetera and check it out for myself - needless to say, I fell in LOVE!  The boutique is so adorable and full of unique items!  I honestly would have bought a lot more if I didn't just spend $200 buying clothes for the kids earlier that morning {damn you, Macy's!}.

Anyway, so if you don't already know, Guam is a pretty small island.  As far as shopping goes, it is very limited.  We don't have a Forever21.  We don't have a H&M.  We don't even have a Walmart, people!  Yes, you can start feeling bad for me now.

The stores we do have, however, are either (a) pricey or (b) played out - as in everyone shops there so there's about a 1 in 3 chance that you'll see some other girl will be wearing the same thing.  Yup, it's that bad.  So of course I'm extremely happy that I found Etcetera and I'm glad that they keep their orders minimal because I really don't like having a fashion double.

I really wish I had taken pictures of the shop to show you but, alas, I was on my own with the double trouble {Chloe and Trace} so I had a hard enough time just trying to get them to keep still while trying on clothes.  I will try my hardest to take a few pictures the next time I go because you KNOW I'll be going back there soon.  And if you live on Guam, or are planning to visit the island, please stop by there and take a look for yourself!  FYI, the owner is so awesome and friendly!

I could not find a website for Etcetera or Sunglasses, Etc. on Guam for you guys, but there's a news article about the opening of Etcetera HERE if you want to check it out!

Oh, and due to your requests, I will be posting my full outfit from yesterday's post as well as the outfit I wore on Monday {skirt as a top} in upcoming posts so check back soon every day!

    1. Bwahaha. I totally fell in love with these shorts when I put them on. The only sucky thing is that there's no stretch to them so the waist is a little tight on me but the leg area is good. When I tried a size up, it was wayyy too baggy and looked ridiculous. But that just means I gotta lose more inches in my waist. Lol!

  5. I love the color combination. I never thought about wearing a nude color on the bottom and bold color on top. Awesome!

    Girl, I feel bad for you. No Forever21 or Walmart! Dang. I've always thought H&M should be in Hawaii (and Guam). When I was in Europe last month, it was everywhere. Like three on one street! There was more H&Ms than McDonalds. Serious! There was even a separate store for kids.

    Anyway, love the outfit. I hope the Guam's heat is not killing you.

    1. Girl, when in doubt go nude. Lol. Color wise. Not naked.

      And yeah H&M should def open a store in Hawaii! I really would love to go work there in Europe or something...(sigh)...If only I were young again and able to make decisions like that on a whim.

  8. i hear you on the whole fashion double thing! when i was going to school on guam, i remember that whenever i asked another girl where she got her shoes or outfit, a lot of the time, she'd just answer, "secret". at first i used to think it was a stuck up thing lol but after years of living there, i got it. good thing for you is that you can always order online! h&m will be available online by the end of 2012!
