Parking Lot Antics

Chambray Top, Tank: Target
Black Skinny Jeans: Forever 21
Scarf/ Headband: Thrifted
Purse: TJ Maxx
Flats: Mervyn's
Sunglasses: Ray Bans
Necklace: Gifted

Excuse the picture heavy post, but what can I say..... I was having fun! These pictures were taken on day when it looked like it was going to rain but fortunately, it didn't! These pictures were taken at this location because we were taking a racing car out for a spin, and since we were already out here, I said 'why not take advantage and make it a blogger picture day?!' So we did and I liked how the pictures came out, so here they are!
As for the outfit, it's sort of a late 50s early 60s inspired outfit. It's sort of like an Audrey Hepburn-esque outfit. If my pants were a bit shorter and I hadn't opted to wear the chambray button-up I would have had it right. Oh well, I like my version of it because it's MINE. The scarf/headband thing was one of the items I got while thrifting last Saturday. It's awesome, huh? So do you guys like the outfit? Hepburn-esque or not?

Thrift/Vintage Spree!

Hat: Ross
Embroidered Tank: Thrifted
Jeans: Marshall's
Sandals: Sway
Ring: Forever 21

Hooray for Saturdays! Okay so these pictures were from when I went to visit my mom to go thrifting/vintage shopping in Petaluma. I really like the look of this outfit because it kind of reminds me of the 60s/70s for some reason. It's probably the carefree look of it. I really didn't put much thought into this outfit like I  normally do because the previous night was somewhat of a blur. But this blog is about fashion and NOT of my life! (wink)
So anyways, my mom and I went and did some damage at a few thrift stores, or should I say, I did the damage! Oh well.... a girl needs to treat herself some times, right?! So as for the things I bought, they were all things I am going to need for Fall, so I don't feel too bad I spent the money. Besides, I got a lot of things for what one item would normally be.
My thrift store items were: a cute little argyle sweater, a sheer button-up blouse, a vintage leather camel colored jacket, which looks AWESOME! I can't wait to wear it when it gets cold! We also discovered a vintage shop in Petaluma that I had never been in before, and I scored some really great things! The store is called Chick-A-Boom Vintage and they have EVERYTHING, and I mean everything! I got a 1950's dress which I will be wearing and posting soon, a 1950s blouse, and another dress that I will wear for my works' company party. I can't wait to go back and score some other great items!

Belated Labor Day

Crop Top: TJ Maxx
Shorts: Ross
Belt: Forever 21
Sandals: Kohl's
Bag: Thrifted
Headband/Neckscarf: Thrifted
Sunnies: Ray Bans

Sorry this post is late but I have been busy catching up with school, working, and car issues. But.....not to worry, I am back and into the swing of things! So anyways, this picture was from the picnic/ birthday party I went to for my dad at the beach. It was a really nice day and everyone seemed to be at the beach,
So for my outfit, I decided to keep it casual since it was hot, but not enough so that I had to wear even less clothing. I really like the look of this outfit, however, I do not like the look of my pasty white legs. Boy do I need a tan! Oh well, maybe next summer! So what did you guys do for Labor Day? Any exciting plans you care to share with me? Let me know!

So.... before I go and start my rambling on this outfit, may I just say: I LOVE my new purse! Isn't it it just lovely?! I FINALLY managed to buy this purse after keeping my eye on it for a few months now. I saw this beauty while thrifting with my mom a few months ago at our local thrift store. It had been sitting on the shelf, being ignored by everyone, and collecting dust. But because I saw it's true beauty I could not pass it on any longer. The purse is from the 50s early 60s, and it has a two pockets and one in the middle that closes with some king of gold hardware. I'm not really sure what you call those but I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about. So this Saturday, I snatched it up and made it my own! Not only did I buy a few other goodies at this this thrift store but, my mother and I managed to go to a new thrift store in Petaluma and boy, did we score big!
At the one in Petaluma, I managed to acquire this beautiful hand painted necklace. I'm not sure from what time period it could be, but I knew I had to have it. Plus, it has flowers on it and you guys know of my love for anything floral.
So as for the outfit, I had been wanting to get shorts like this for a while now and I finally bit the bullet, when I was shopping at Forever 21 with my friend. I am really liking the sorts with stockings trend because it allows me to show some leg, without REALLY showing leg. Ha ha. Do you guys like it? Oh and as for my white button-up, I'm trying to adjust to it because I don't really like to wear white but people tell me it looks good on me, so I may just wear it a bit more. Please share your opinions with me on the matter and thanks to all my followers who continue on supporting my blog, even when I haven't been posting regularly. I really appreciate it!!!
