The heat is still blazing therefore I will continue to wear my summer clothes. Today's outfit isn't thrift store this time around. My friends went to Ghana and came back with gifts! It's a cozy soft tee with benefits. It's like a dress but not. It zip in front so it can be layered and worn as a light jacket. It is simply adorned with a dashiki print neckline therefore I am in love.
The dashiki tee also comes with a matching skirt. I decided not to wear it today. It was a jeans day. A dim sum brunch required a tough garment to keep food baby tucked in while I feasted on cheat day. I was pleasantly surprised to find high waist jeans in Old Navy. There were only two pairs in the entire store and I was lucky enough to fit one of them. They're at my belly button and not above like I like them but I'm glad to have found a retail spot for higher rise.
I was feeling pretty glam with all the fabric flowing behind me so I went ahead and wore my high heels. Now I'm feeling like a 5'4 inch Amazonian woman. This outfit is giving me height!
My only thrift store finds are the chunky statement ring and the big vintage sunnies. Both are from my Unclaimed Baggage thrift haul. They are a reminder to take another trip there. That place is a treasure trove of unique and interesting finds - old and new. Every thriftanista needs an annual pilgrimage here.
I don't know if you can tell but I'm pouring sweat. My sunglasses are hiding the makeup that is sliding off of my face. I'm not looking forward to colder weather. I am looking forward to putting away the sweaty beast I've been all summer though.
What have you thrifted lately?
