Freebie.

Aside from hitting up the local thrift stores, I also like to check out yard sales which spring up like weeds around our neighborhood every weekend. Digging through other people's stuff is like a treasure hunt. You never know what goodies you'll find in what other people consider trash. In case you didn't know, I looove a bargain. And this shirt was better than a bargain! It was basically free. And by free, I mean 50 cents! Scoooore! I absolutely love the color, pattern and the four gold buttons on the right sleeve (unfortunately not easily seen in these pictures). And it was 87 degrees today which made it a let's-get-some-sun-on-those-legs day for me. These silky shorts used to be a one-piece jumper but I didn't care for the top part too much and just did a quick diy fix.

Happy weekend everyone!

Top: yard sale, shorts: diy, shoes: Bakers, watch: gift, seahorse necklace: F21, gold bracelet: gift.
