Sunday's 100% thrifted outfit, featuring a pair of highwaisted vintage patchwork shorts I picked up for two bucks at the Welfare League Thrift. I've had them for like a month now, but yesterday was my first time wearing them out. They’re made of actual patched together pieces of super soft cotton. Now, if only I had a quilt to match!
I found the little florally-painted ceramic bead necklace on the same thrift outing and I believe it was a two-dollar find as well.
The vintage beaded blouse with little pearl buttons was recently given to me by my mom. It was a flea market find that ended up not fitting her, so lucky me!
Speaking of flea market finds, check out my new vintage sunnies ($3). I have trouble finding sunglasses that I like on me, but I’m diggin’ these ones right now :)
Shorts outfits have been piling up in my inspiration folder (mostly from various street style blogs). I’d been kind of stuck as to how to work my patchwork shorts into an outfit, that is until I came across this look recently which reminded me of the shorts and gave me a shot of inspiration (as you can see, I was inspired by her hair too ;)
Some other looks that inspired the outfit:
Leather belt, white blouse.
Sheer white blouse/black undergarment. That hair! This has to be the same girl.
Later in the day, the little black flats I was wearing got uncomfortable (still breaking those in) so I switched to my brown leather lace-ups ala this adorable lady (love her floral shorts too).
We set off on a walk to the park to hang out on the sunny lawn, sip cold beers, and catch some free live music with friends and family. Did a little dancing too. I just love watching Clover dance at outdoor concerts, she is the cutest little dancer!
It was a really fun way to end the weekend. Hope you had some fun times this weekend too :D
