We’re reaching triple-digit-weather here in the valley of the sun. And it’s only June. This dreadful “dry heat” calls for clothing with breathable material in order to keep cool while staying stylish. Because of our long summers, it’s best to have as many of these options as possible. Finding them at a cheaper price, is even better!
I’ve had this graphic, relaxed-fit tee for a few years, and it’s my favorite! I think buying it on my very first trip to Forever 21, for around $10, has a lot to do with it. My black, pleated shorts are from the Goodwill; I snagged them for $6. I really like how loose these are, yet flattering to my figure with them being slightly high-waisted.
This suede, royal blue belt was another item I bought while bargaining in New York. I’m sure that’s why I found this Top Shop accessory for only $8. I really wanted to pair these two items together, and didn’t let the fact that there are no belt loops sway me. This is what I mean when I say “get creative” when it comes to shopping and piecing together an outfit. These tan wedges? $20 from Charming Charlies.
To get my hair up and away, I turned one of printed scarfs into a funky and stylish head wrap. I completed the look with gold accessories to accent the gold details in the belt and shoes. Again, the jewelry is kept simple. I’m looking forward to purchasing more bottoms similar to these instead of denim this summer. Pretty dang excited, if you ask me! As always, shop smart, get creative, and continue to stay true to you!
