Girl On Fire

IMG_4986 A lot of the street style I've been admiring as of late has been from European cities and New York. These styles are, not surprisingly, very focused on neutrals. This influence as well as my transition into office attire has me wearing a lot more neutral outfits than usual. I'm not complaining, but for the summer season I think color is necessary. On this day I pulled out my DIY clutch that adds a statement to my outfit, but still stays professional with its hardware detailing.

After wearing this thrifted maxi skirt once before, I was torn between chopping off the interior lining, or just leaving it be. Well, I spotted my fabric scissors one day and that skirt had a new fate. I am so glad I cut it! I love that the lace detail shows now, adding so much more depth to my outfit.

Goodwill Outlet Haul // Summer Edition

IMG_3420 I took another trip to the Goodwill Outlet right before I left San Luis Obispo with my favorite thrifting buddy Alana. My last outlet haul video was pretty popular, so I knew I had to make another one for you guys. My finds were even better this time (see how I styled one of them above) so watch and enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! Have you been to a Goodwill Outlet before? What did you think of it? I know that they can vary so I'd love to know if you found anything good!

Rugged Florals

IMG_3391 I thrifted this amazing skirt at the Goodwill Outlet the other day. At first I thought it was too granny and didn't see the potential in it. However, I chopped it into a hi-low style, and the lightweight material kept me so cool all day! I paired it with a simple black tank that wouldn't compete too much with the print, and a studded leather vest to add a touch of interest.

Today was super exciting because I was able to leave the house for the first time after my surgery, and I bought a new lens for my camera! Unfortunately I had my camera on the wrong setting so the images are a little fuzzy, but I'll have that issue fixed tomorrow!
