Holiday weekends I always forget to get photos. I’m too damn busy. I’ll have my camera with me but I’ll never take it out of my bag.

This was last Sunday during 4th of July weekend. My husband and I met up with my best friend and her boyfriend for a few cocktails. On our walk home, I remembered I forgot to get my photos, and my husband happily stepped in to take a few for me.

It’s really funny to me how different it is taking photos in front of him instead of a tripod. I make really silly, goofy smiley faces when he takes my photos.  They’re 100% genuine, but goofy nonetheless.  He makes me kinda self concious in a cute girly way.  Which is weird for me because there’s nothing about me that’s normally cute and girly.  Ask any of my friends, they’d tell you I’d probably punch you in the face if you called me that.

Oh, and how awesome are these shorts!  I found them at the Market Publique loft sale here in Williamsburg  back several months ago.  They were actually unfinished.  They were much longer and not hemmed.  I had them altered and now totally love them.  I can’t believe I forgot I had them in my 30 challenge items until day 19.  You’ll probably be seeing these shorts a lot in the final 10 days of the challenge so I can make up for my forgetfulness.

Sunday Shirt

This shirt is ridiculously comfortable and perfect for summer.  It’s not see through, but  the breeze travels right through it, keeping me cool.  So it’s a go-to item for me on weekends.  I also wore this shirt the previous Sunday during this 30 for 30 challenge, so I hereby dub it my Sunday Shirt.

What you’re favorite thing to wear on weekends?

Thrifty

Thrifty

Every 6 months or so I go through my wardrobe and figure out what I’m no longer wearing as well as what items I want to update my look for the upcoming season.  This season, I decided instead of purchasing mostly new items that I was going to purchase the most of the items I was looking for at my favorite thrift and vintage stores.  Not only did I pick up near everything on my list (except for bathing suits), I got a few bonus items as well.  Not to mention I spent loads less than I would have buying all this stuff new.

I ended up with…

  • A neon pink Calvin Klein blazer
  • An army green Zara blazer
  • A D&G short sleeved cardigan
  • A white leopard short-sleeved cardigan
  • Several synthetic silk blouses, most of which were from the 60’s. 
  • A funky patterned red maxi skirt
  • The most amazing cascade jacket with pleather arms!!  Made by a label called Gender Bias.
  • Black and white polka-dotted high-waisted shorts
  • A black and white spotted sweater.
  • An awesome 80’s purple and black sweater dress
  • An 80’s fab gold jacket.  It was so loud I had to try it on and it ended up looking awesome.
  • J Brand wide leg jeans (only $3!)
  • 2 pairs of peep toe flats (vegan)
  • A black and white scarf in a cool pattern

I’m probably missing from this list a bunch of other items buried in this pile.  I’m excited to start remixing these items into my wardrobe stat!
