Shirt: Thrifted
Striped Shirt: Yard Sale-ed?
Skirt: Thrifted
Sandals: Kimchi Blue
Hat: Thrifted

There's something going on with this hat in the first couple photos that is unfortunately reminiscent of Smokey the Bear. My uncharacteristically large head forced the top to go against its instinct and pop out? Whatevs, guys. My big head is beautiful : ).

I just realized almost this entire outfit is thrifted! Yay me! I really try my best to exclusively buy thrifted/vintage/secondhand items, as it's a)cheaper b)way better for the environment. It also allows for more creativity, I think. But that's just my humble opinion.
The only real exception to this rule of mine, however, is for footwear. I've decided that this is the year I become an adult and start buying quality (read: more expensive) shoes. I'm tired of having to buy a new pair of sandals, boots, etc. every year simply because the ones I purchased previously were crap and I should've known better but UO was having a huge sale and I couldn't take my eyes off them and the cute shopboy with the eyes said he liked them. I mean, that didn't happen to me. (.....)
Also, sometimes you're internet drooling window shopping and you can't help but fall head over heels for something new. But typically I'm too broke for new, so it works out! : )

I'm sorry all you've been getting is outfit posts! I truly intend for this to be much more, it's just that I'm juggling quite a lot at the moment, so it's hard to sit down and brainstorm some segments. If you stick with me, I promise it'll be worthwhile.

Any plans for Cinco de Mayo?

  1. You have never posted an outfit that I haven't loved. Seriously, I want your fashion sense! :)

    Ha, I'm with you on the cheap shoes thing. I think I'm making good money choices whenever I buy cheap shoes, but I'm pretty sure I end up spending more because they always need to be replaced!

    1. That's so kind of you! You seem to always know the sweetest thing to say : )
      And yeah, at the time it always seems like a better idea. Then I wear them a couple of times...regret.

  2. Gorgeous outfit, the blue of the skirt is stunning.
    I'm often completely thrifted, the clothes are just so unique compared to high street shopping.

  3. Hats are the best! You should take advantage of the fact that you suit them- people who don't are always so jealous! x

    1. Oh I try to! Hopefully this was just some weird fluke thing.

  4. that's the best, when you discover your entire (or almost entire) outfit was thrifted...gives you a sense of pride. makes you feel more creative, thrifty, and yes, green! i'm loving that skirt so, so much. it's such a bright, beautiful color & i love the back pleats.

    1. Thank you! And I wholeheartedly agree with all of the above.
      It's actually a cheerleading skirt! I didn't even realize it until I brought it home from goodwill and the tag read something about "united team league" or something.

  5. Very cute! What a great skirt! I wore a uniform as a child and usually don't like anything that mimics a traditional uniform skirt- but this color gives it a new twist- love it

    1. We are the opposite, haha. I love things that resemble a classic school uniform! Then again, I was never forced to wear one, so.
      Thank you!
