Thrifty Thursday

The summer clothes are out in the thrift stores in full force! All kinds of cute shorts and shirts to be had: you just have to search!

These shorts have a 'JCrew' sort of style to them; I love the bright damask print. They'll go great with an equally bright top.

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Gap
Section: Shorts
What I Paid: $4.99
What They Cost In-Store: $60

It's rare to find the same thing twice in the thrift store, so when I passed on this skirt the first time and regretted it, I snatched it up as soon as I saw it again! Another bright colour to add to the wardrobe.

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: H&M
Brand: Skirts
What I Paid: $3.99
What it Costs In-Store: ~ $30

Neutral heels are an absolute staple in any girl's wardrobe, and I already have a pair, but open toed heels are better for summer time than the usual close toed neutrals. These will go great with a crisp white tea length dress!

Store: Value Village
Brand: Aldo
Section: Shoes
What I Paid: $9.99* (Were originally $20, got 50% off !)
What it Costs In-Store: ~ $70

Nautical Style: Part 2

For the second day of our boating excursion during the May long weekend, I opted for an equally nautical look (of course), which was the result of a very impromptu shopping spree at Old Navy prior to the trip! Their nautical flip flops were just way too adorable to pass on; they even have little anchors on them, after all. I built the outfit around my linen pants, which you may have seen on my Los Angeles post from last summer. Linen is such a breezy fabric, and I love how it looks as part of a nautical outfit. I bought a linen blouse from Old Navy as well, which you'll see in one of my summer posts I'm sure. You don't have to be on a boat to wear nautical style linen though, it looks great on the beach too!
