Scarf Fever!

I think I've had the Scarf Fever since eighth grade when my family and I traveled to Paris, France. I wanted to bring home tons of French things, but everything was so expensive! I did find a loophole though, scarves! They were inexpensive, all the chic French ladies were wearing them and apparently they still are! My friend has informed me that during her trip to Paris this summer scarves are the things that everyone seems to be wearing!

My scarf fever has been heating up especially since fall is around the bend! This past week has been so hot, I  can't imagine putting anything around my neck except for maybe an ice cold washcloth, but I know it will eventually cool off and it will be the season of the scarves! :)

Anywhoo here are a few of my favorite scarves that will hopefully get you in the mood for the scarf wearin' season!

This is the newest addition to my scarf collection. My grandma bought it for me in Chinatown in San Francisco. Speaking of Chinatown, if you ever visit check out the scarves! They are cheap, and if you are the type to bring home souvenirs for friends you can get 5 for $20! 

Remember how I said I went crazy with scarves in France? Well this was my favorite scarf that I found! I bought a similiar one for my friend and had to get one for myself as well. I have yet to see a scarf like this, but I love it! I had lost this scarf for a while, but my dad found it in the garage which was a very happy discovery :)

I recieved this scarf as a gift from my grandma. I love the softness and flowiness of this beautiful accessory! I wore it on the trip to San Francisco and it goes with just about everything (okay maybe not extreme colors) which was very helpful! 

This is a BIG scarf! It has a nice weave and I scored at my favorite thrift store for only $1.50! I hope to wear this a lot this winter :)

I hope I've inspired some of you to go out and wear some scarves when it gets a little windy or even just to spruce up and outfit. They do make a difference, and are very inexpensive at thrift stores. Look out for unique pieces with cool weaves and you'll be recieving compliments left and right :)

Happy Thrifting!

Summer Outfit: Mixing Patterns

Hi there! So today I am hanging out at home trying to stay cool. I recently picked up these green patterned shorts at my favorite thrift store! I love the design and I can see myself wearing these all the time.  Last week I went on a little vacation to Central California and I picked up a new, unique bracelet. I am so excited about this bracelet! It goes with everything :) Anywhoo here's what I put together for today.

I look very orange in these pictures.. hmm.. anywhoo aren't these shorts cute? I love them! I've been trying to use more accessories lately and this new bracelet seems to go with everything. I've worn this shirt quite a bit and I always get compliments on it. And to think that I was going to pass it up because it was so blousy. PSH I just tuck it in and it adds to the laid-back look :) 
Shirt: $3 Orlando Salvation Army
Shorts: $4 Brand Aeropostal
Bracelet: Trip Souvenir
 Necklace: $5 Forever 21 

The always reliable (but quite stretched out D: ) croc flats! They are extremely cute and comfy but I would suggest buying a size down so they don't fall of your feet like these ones do. I'm still wearing them though because they go with just about everything!

My new bracelet! It's so dainty which is just my style :) It has a velvet surface along the strap which is unique but I often worry about it. I think it's just the omg-this-is-my-brand-new-bracelet-i-don't-want-to-damage-it phase. I'll get over it soon :P

And finally I wore a simple lipstick with today's pattern-clashing outfit. It is Revlon's Pink in the Afternoon color :)

Happy thrifting! Keep an eye out for those patterns :)
