totally thrifted

happy monday, people! okay mondays are never that happy but it's not freezing and it's fall and i'm drinking an iced chai and i don't have any complaints this morning. i had a great weekend spent with good friends in loud bars, and even got some homework done. yay for being productive! and speaking of productivity, i also finished season 5 of mad men on netflix! if there's one thing i'm good at, it's binge watching television shows. go me.


something about autumn makes me wanna wear orange. a lot. and i usually hate orange. but when october rolls around i can't wait to wear it. i mean it's the color of pumpkins and pretty leaves and candy corn (i love candy corn). orange is everywhere this time of year. so this basic striped tee is perfect for the season.


these shorts are one of my favorite thrifted finds. i know i probably say that a lot, but this time i really mean it! i'm pretty sure turquoise will never stop being my number one favorite color and i will jump at any chance to incorporate it into an outfit. since the color of the shorts is the highlight of this look, i decided to keep it simple and go with black accessories. these little black sneakers are just so darn comfy and i have to have my handy dandy black satchel. 


i've been enjoying the transition to fall and wearing skirts or shorts with long sleeves and scarves. i don't have to fully commit to dressing to face the cold because the weather has been gorgeous, but i still like wearing fall pieces and colors. i am so not a jacket person and it's been nice not having to wear one. it's so hard to plan outfits around the one or two jackets in my wardrobe!! safe to say i'm typically cold a lot. lol.


you can hit up forever 21 to make a similar look. they had almost the exact shorts, and they even come with a black belt! how perfect. i'm totally crazy about those studded black sneakers too. remember the whole stud/shoe combo obsession thing i mentioned last week? still going strong. 


hope your week is off to a great start!

xxoo,

  8. I totally feel the same way about certain colours too....especially orange and red. I'm not typically a fan of wearing either, but for some reason, when the right time of year rolls around, I can't get enough!

    I love this entire look and I'm jealous that you're still wearing shorts.

  9. I think orange is such a pretty color but you rarely see it sold anywhere. Yay for thrifting! There's nothing better then finding a score at a thrift store. I'm totally the opposite about jackets, I'm working on an arsenal of them...brights and muted tones alike. Cute outfit!
