Thrifty Threads – Easy Breezy

The New York heat wave continues and there’s nothing better than throwing on a flowy garment. Oh, and it was also my birthday this weekend, so I wanted an outfit that was cute but not too fussy. I knew exactly what I’d wear that would fulfill those requirements.
While thrifting at Buffalo Exchange in San Francisco, I “splurged” on a color block, hi-low top. 20 bucks is a little much for a secondhand item, but I knew I had to have it. I paired it with my vintage Wrangler cut offs that I bought at Clothes Contact, where vintage goods are $10 per pound.
  What to wear in a heat wave
I love the movement of the shirt and the coral and turquoise compliment each other so well. Since the shirt is sheer, I rocked a bikini bandeau top underneath.
And of course the shoes had to be fly. I’m pretty much obsessed with these Aldo wedges I scored at the Sip & Swap I hosted earlier this year. They’re about five inches high, but quite comfortable.
The rest of my accessories were pretty simple: thin gold necklace, bangles, leather and studded wrap bracelet by Stella & Dot and a cocktail ring.
Though I winced at paying $20 for the top, it was well worth it. I know I’ll get tons of wear out of it this summer.
Week 39 of my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge {a full year where I only buy second-hand clothing} is down. Only 13 more weeks to go!
