Cute, Casual, Cool

Hey Dolls!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  I certainly did.  I got out and explored another section of Tampa that I have never really had a good reason to go to until this weekend.  When I tell you I felt like I was in a different city.  I saw all kinds of cute little boutiques and eateries that I will have to try.  But there was only so much time in the day.  My first stop took so much time; I kind of had to rush through the others just to make it in time before they closed. 

I had the MOST amazing Thrifting Saturday ever (well, so far anyway)!  Earlier this year, my co-worker Dorine was admiring one of my very first Thrifting finds and I told her I found it at The Goodwill.  She shared that one of her girlfriends finds the best things at Thrift Stores and Consignment Shops here in the Tampa Bay Area.  So she gathered a list for me and I FINALLY went. It was amazing I tell you.  The place I spent the MOST time in was Sunshine Thrift Store.  This place was great!!!!  I got so many great things.  I can’t wait to show you guys.

After I left Sunshine, I made it to two more locations they were consignment shops.  The second spot was Triage Consignment Shop.  And the third stop of the day was FreshThreads, a Designer Consignment Boutique. I fell in LOVE with this place.  They have some of the nicest things at a great price!!!  The owner Juli was so nice and friendly.  I will definitely be back there!!! 

I can’t wait to show you guys my Thrift Store finds!  I have to get my pictures together.  Stay tuned!  

On to my outfit.  I have been looking for me some cute and inexpensive colored jeans since late last year.  So you know I was geeked when I found these at Marshall’s last month for $15.  Yesssssss!  I got a blue pair as well. Since I knew I would be Thrifting, I wanted to keep it comfy and casual and of course CUTE!!!!

I paired these jeans with a white shirt and my classic white Converse or as we call them in the Lou – CHUCKS!  Chucks NEVER go out of style. I Love them!  I added a few red and gold accents to complete my look and there you have it. 

What I’m Wearing:
Shirt:  H&M
Pants:  U-51 via Marshall’s
Shoes: Converse
Necklace: Forever 21
Bracelets:  Bakers & JoAnn’s Fabrics
Earrings:  JCPenney (OLD)
Sunnies:  Steve Madden
Ring:  Flea Market
Belt:  Target
