Hey all,

Hope you had a great weekend.  Here’s another floral look courtesy of my local thrift stores.  I built a look around this floral skirt I got for $2 (ridiculous, right?).  If you guys aren’t already avid thrifters, I encourage you guys to venture out and rummage through some of your local ones.  There are a lot of great, unique finds to be had.  I wouldn’t have found this floral skirt if I hadn’t just passed through, so it’s worth a shot.  Who knows what treasures you will find…  What has been your favorite, latest thrifted find?


old time feel // modern twist

 What do we have again–another piece from Forever 21’s BOGO sale!  This is one of the additional items I got in addition to the sweater you saw in the previous post (I got 6 items in total–3 paid for and 3 for free).  I am such a sucker for these kinds of sales.  Forever 21, why must you act as a deathtrap for my wallet time and time again?  There are just too many irresistible finds at the best price points around.

I loved this dress because it was so chic–the high-neck brought me back to another era (Can somebody help me classify the time period for the silhouette of this dress?).  Anyways, I thought it had a cool, classic, old-time feel to it, but the floral print gave it a playful kick.  Call it an auntie/grandma dress or a glorified muumuu, but I like it.

I can see myself rocking this at a Hawaiian luau or any summery event.  It’s bright, it’s playful, it’s a bit loud–since it’s summer, why not go all out and let your brightest dresses catch some of that summer sun?

The 4 Days of July: Day 1

Happy July everyone! To kick off this month, I’ve decided to do a 4 days of July series with a different outfit each day to ring in the 4th of July. I know that we only typically do countdowns for Christmas, but I thought, “Why not Independence Day?” It’s a great day to celebrate being American with family and friends.

3 Cheers for the Red, White, & Blue

Hat: Mint by Goorin (on sale at Urban Outfitters)

Polka-Dot Top: Iz Byer California (thrifted)

Shorts: American Apparel (thrifted)

Sandals: Ros Hommerson
