summer's end


Wearing: Alice & Olivia Trousers | H&M Tank | Old Navy Belt | Rebecca Minkoff Bag (similar, on sale!) | Kate Spade Watch | Target Heels

Is it really the first day of September? This can't be right. I decided to celebrate summer's end with the brightest outfit I could find, replicating a watermelon (dare I say) & rocking a new brunette do - whatcha think?

Besides harping on the obvious, I wanted to stress my fascination with bargain hunting. See above, this outfit could have easily cost me $500, right? Both this bag & these pants sell for $200+, but I managed to find both half off - talk about a girl on a mission. I've been desperate to add a pair of A + O's high-waisted trousers to my closet for months, after spying Eva Mendes rocking them with a simple tee, & literally stalked the internet until they went on sale. This RM Mini Mac walked up to me in Beacon's Closet in Brooklyn, NY on one of my thrifting adventures, & we became best friends, right then & there.

My point is, everything goes on sale. Take your time searching, online & in stores, hunt eBay like a hawk, scour Threadflip & Poshmark, because you get so much more satisfaction & thrill buying an item you love on major discount.

    1. how sweet, sarah! but, i will have to thank the high rise trousers for the optical illusion of long legs - i highly suggest investing in a pair! i own one too many.
