stripes & floral + thrift sisters link up

stripesandfloral Florals and Stripes!  This week, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays and I are styling our striped button down shirts with our floral skirts.  Check out Keren’s blog for the details on her super cute floral pencil skirt and blue striped button down shirt.

DSC_1722 DSC_1750 I know you won’t believe me when I say that this outfit cost a total of $40, head to toe!  But, it does.

DSC_1764 DSC_1765 I thrifted this J Crew pin striped button down shirt from AMVETS in San Diego, for only $2.00.  The purple color definitely made me want to buy it immediately.  A little tip for you.  Button down shirts are one of the easiest items to find at your local thrift and consignment stores.   These shirts are in abundance,  and often can be found for less than $5.00.

DSC_1785 DSC_1725 I had been on a hunt for a floral skirt for the longest.  However, not wanting to pay the retail price, I simply kept it on my thrift wish list.  I finally found it at a Buffalo Exchange in Las Vegas for $8.00, my kind of price for sure.  I was especially excited about the pops of purple color in the skirt.

DSC_1726 DSC_1729 One of my favorite parts of this outfit is this large purple floppy hat!  I am not a hat person, but I certainly fell in love with this one and thus paid a hefty price of $15 for it from Lost and Found Recycled Fashion in Hillcrest, San Diego.   I choose nude pumps to complete this outfit, since there was enough colors with the floral pattern.   You have certainly seen these pumps several times on this blog before, like here and here.  These INC International Concepts pumps cost only $15 on a super clearance at Macys!

DSC_1736 DSC_1778 Have you tried mixing your stripes with floral?  If not, check out your local thrift stores to find the pieces and give it a try.
