Aloha - Bolo | photography by Shay McGinnis
I'm going to start getting personal about things... My name is Levi and I have a weakness for bolo ties. Yes it's true. All shapes, all sizes, all kinds. I really like them. I might also have a slight habit for buying vintage Aloha shirts. I blame it on my childhood in Hawaii. All of those trips to Hilo Hattie left me longing for more abstract palms and plumeria prints, turning my leisurely thrifting into a witch hunt. I was recently inspired to throw a bolo tie together with my Aloha shirt for a Southwestern meets Island kinda vibe. No special occasion just felt like changing things up a bit. Thats one of my favorite things about styling - mixing and matching.
