The day has finally come to show you guys my very simple, very me outfit of the day. Not only do I have my near and dear nautical theme going on (yup, again...), but in terms of where this outfit was acquired, I feel like I'm going back to my roots!
I admit that ever since I went off to college, I found myself in a bit of a mall rut. It's incredibly easy to get caught up in all the fresh-off-the-press clothing items, especially when you're surrounded by girls looking super cute in their new crop tops and Palazzo pants in class. And this isn't to say that these new items don't have their merit- I'm a victim of the crop top, and if they weren't so cute they wouldn't have this much of a following.
However, few feelings compare to the times when your friends ask where you got something and you can say you got them for some ridiculously low price at a garage sale. (Exhibit A: earrings for about 25 cents).
I miss hardcore thrifting- not just my favorites like Plato's Closet and Buffalo Exchange, but actually having to rummage through hangers for hidden treasures in a good ol' traditional thrift store/garage sale. Going back to more conscious shopping (for myself and the environment) is a big goal of mine for the new school year (also supporting local and indie vendors). There's nothing like cute clothes that no one else is likely to own! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by!
