I maybe dating myself by admitting that my favorite gum as a kid was Fruit Stripe Gum. It was all pow at the front end and fizz at the back end. I fell for the let down every.single.time!! It was still such a yummy treat though, so much so that I could devour a pack in a day if left to my own devices. So, when I ran across this striped top at my local second hand retailer, I had to snatch it up. It instantaneously reminded me of my beloved childhood treat.
The weather was very warm today so, I decided to try out the top with boyfriend shorts, cargo jacket, wooden beads, flat sandals and my trusty tote. This look was comfy and I felt very pulled together as I ran about town with soccer teams in tow, etc. Hence, another pose without all of me in it
|Bag-Zara, Jacket-old, Striped top-Thrifted, Necklace-Thrifted/gifted, Shorts/old-Kohl's LC Lauren Conrad, Sandals-Thrifted|
There you have it a smashed up thrifted, gifted and discounted outfit. For those keeping track, that is 3 items thrifted/gifted and 3 items purchased at discounted prices= a totally on point outfit that can be worn multiple ways.
P.S. I must say the photos don't do this top justice since you can't see the detail on the sleeve or the zipper in back! I guess I'll have to restyle it and get photographed at a later date.
Happy HUMP Day!!
