Fancy outfit

So one of my Summer 13 goals was to have three “fancy” outfit shoots.  Originally I intended these to be shots outside of my house and yard.  But I’ve decided to stretch that to include outfit shoots that have new/different poses from my usual.  Mostly because it was about to pour buckets on this day, and I really wanted to photography my outfit without destroying my camera.  So there :)

This denim jacket/shirt was one of my favorite thrifting finds of late.  I’ve seen so many of my favorite style bloggers wear denim/chambray shirts and make them look amazing.  I was at the mall recently, and found at least one denim shirt at every store I went to , but none of them fit just right, and they were all too expensive.  On a recent trip to my favorite thrift store, I found this shirt for a mere $8 and  I love it!   It’s cotton, comfy, cuffable and just the right shade of blue.  Thrifting for the win!

On a sadder note, the above mentioned favorite thrift store of mine suddenly and abruptly closed up shop yesterday.  Turns out that the denim shirt will be the last thing I ever bought at their Tampa location.  They’re moving across the bridge to Pinellas Park, which is about 20 minutes farther away.  I’ll still check them out, but I’m really bummed out, because their old location was close to where I worked, so it was easy to pop in for a quick thrifting trip.  So, go visit your favorite thrift shop today.  You never know when it might be gone.

Have you ever found that perfect item you were looking for at a thrift shop?  What was it?

    I can’t believe how long your hair is– seems like just yesterday you were blogging about cutting it short! So cute! Agreed on the denim shirt thing– I am still thrift-hunting for my perfect one!

    Sorry to hear about your store. Too often we take the good things in our lives for granted.

    I was about to get all up in arms and ask you which thrift store…but I haven’t been down that way thrifting in a long time, so I guess I’m not entitled to be upset. But I am sad for you if it was your go-to spot. And yes, the first thing I thought when I saw this post is, ‘I can’t believe how long her hair is’. It looks great and I cannot believe it grows that fast.

    Aw, too bad about the store. I hate it when a favorite store closes. I’ve been looking for a chambray shirt too, but haven’t found the right one yet.
