Bare Shoulders and a Bare Wall
This has nothing to do with this outfit, but the wall I’m standing in front of in these photos, until today, has been blocked by two giant moving boxes and a pile of mess. This morning I finally bit the bullet, unpacked and broke down those boxes, and for whatever reason, this bare wall brings me so much joy. I think I spent about an hour today on Pinterest trying to figure out what I want to do with it. I’m thinking a bit of a gallery wall, a big plant, and an accent chair, but we’ll save all that for another post.
The bare wall seemed like a good spot to show off my bare shoulders, though (10/10 for that transition). I typically avoid off the shoulder tops, because I don’t find them flattering on me. But when I tried this on, something told me I had to buy it. Maybe it was knowing I’d previously felt just as iffy about buying these mom jeans, which later turned out to be a staple in my closet. And of course, the top was only $7, a solid find for my first trip to the Goodwill in Kakaʻako. So I’ll say again what I’ve said before: If you can’t justify spending retail price money on something you aren’t sure you’ll wear, try to find it at a thrift store. I’d recommend that Goodwill in Kakaʻako for a pretty curated selection, but places like Plato’s Closet and Buffalo Exchange that look specifically for trendy pieces for their stock are probably your best bet!
I felt it was only fitting to pair my two “gosh, am I really gonna wear this if I buy it?” thrift finds together, and I finished the look off with a pair of my favorite shoes from T.J. Maxx, and some cheapy Target sunnies. It’s just a comfy, casual, summer outfit.
The top and jeans are from Goodwill, about $7 and $8 respectively.
The shoes are from TJ Maxx, and $25
The sunnies are from Target, $9.99 Outfit Total: 'bout $50
