As fashion-forward as I like to be, there is a time and a place to wear leopard print pants— summer BBQs with PBR not being one of them. For a more casual, but still put-together look try a simple white t-shirt (Topshop $28), denim shorts (Old Navy $18.50), and red sneaks.
Complete the look with style: Miu Miu shades (have a permanent spot on the To-Buy list) // Bumble & Bumble surf spray (achievable beach hair sans beach) // Revlon Just Bitten Kissable stain (inexpensive and beautiful) // ASOS spike bracelet (in constant rotation) // Alex & Ani LOVE bangle (my charm bracelet of choice)

To me, thrift store shopping is a sport. Every item I find is a prideful win. As I always recommend, go often and look for colors/patterns that suit you. A great way to head into the store is with your "To Buy" list. A “To Buy” list is a great way to remind yourself of those items you don’t have which can frustrate your dressing process each morning. So many times I’ve growled in my head, “If I only had a …” Whatever it is, add it to the list and refer to if before you shop. I’ve only had success with this formula and I have my beautiful sister @cupcakealley to thank for the idea.
