I love the expression “go bananas”.

It is hard to think of bananas without thinking about monkeys. I love the energy that monkeys have. I was born in the year of the monkey. My husband’s nickname for me when we were dating was Curious George (now CG1). My son absolutely loves Curious George and I have read all of the books multiple times. He has a large collection of Curious George “stuffies”. I have always been curious and love my son’s curiosity and constant questions. Life without curiosity, enthusiasm, and going bananas would be so boring.
This preppy display of golden bananas caught my eye. The shirt drapes nicely, too. I styled it with one of my favorite new hats from J.Crew, white jeans, my new gold espadrilles (that are on constant repeat) and a bandana in the Ratti “Into the Wild” print. I was inspired by the J. Crew challenge to wear this print five ways in five days and managed to certainly “go bananas” for it and buy it in several pieces.
Here is to staying curious and going bananas once in a while.
