I honestly can’t believe that July is coming to and end, but that means that there’s one epic secondhand haul coming your way. In case you missed it, I have a new monthly series called The Thrift List. I ask you what I should find at the thrift shop, and I then I go try to find it. It’s pretty much the closest to a big group thrifting trip that I can get, so naturally I loved it.
I will admit, The Thrift List for July was challenging. You guys picked some really great items, but they were hard to find. Out of all the ten items, I ended up finding nine. I think that’s pretty darn good! I wanted to make sure that all of my finds were things that I would actually wear. I have to admit, this was the most fun I’ve had thrifting yet. You guys know I love hunting for specific items.
The only thing I didn’t do for The Thrift List was keep track of my budget. I think that I’ll do that next month. What do you think? If I had to guess, I would say that I spent around $25 for the nine items. I was more focused on actually finding the items. It genuinely took my all month — up until the very end — to find these items. It was well worth it though, and I can’t wait to do it again.
You guys wanted me to find a summer skirt. I’m not exactly sure what that meant, but I went with florals. The black and white print is super wearable, if you ask me. There’s also a big slit up the sides, so it’s perfect for a summer breeze. I’ve been trying to get more into prints, so this was a great first step. If I remember correctly, this was $1 and the first item I found on The Thrift List.
Overalls (Favorite From The Thrift List)
GUYS! I found overalls. I take that back. My mom found these for me, because she’s the best. These were the hardest thing to find, by far. They were also the most expensive at $6. My mom came in clutch and found these last minute. I can already tell you that you’ll be seeing these again in the near future.
Flowy Top & High Waisted Shorts
I combined these two finds into one post. The top might not be the most flowy ever, but it’s thin and moves with my body, so I thought it passed. These high-waisted shorts have already come in handy a few times this month. I wish I would’ve opted for mom-jean looking bottoms though. Maybe for next month!
How cute is this summer bracelet?! It reminds be of the flowers from Alice In Wonderland. I got it for $2 from Goodwill. It’s the perfect summer statement piece without being too flashy. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I’m a minimalist. This bracelet fits in my collection perfectly.
As you can probably see, this isn’t a tie-up dress. I found a few, but none that I would actual wear in my day-to-day life. Instead, I decided to opt for this other trendy design. The choker trend is in full swing, and I’ve seen tons of tops with faux choker details. Not to mention that I love the pattern. This find was $3.
You guys already know that I’ve been all about rompers lately. Surprisingly, it was hard to find one that I really loved. There were a few that were dressy and others that were super casual, but this one is the perfect in-between. Bonus points that it’s denim.
For me, these are funky. I normally keep it pretty simple when it comes to sunglasses. These were $1, so I gave the circle-meets-square design a try. I love them! I’ve been reaching for these over some of the other pairs I have. I particularly love that the top half is brown and the bottom is clear.
I know, I know. I should’ve gone for something a bit more summery. But I thought the elephant print was just too cute to pass up. It’s the most comfortable thing I’ve ever worn and the slits make it perfect when the breeze hits. I can see myself wearing this into fall as well.
What do you guys think? I think I did pretty darn well, but I’m biased. I really want to keep this series going, so please leave your August Thrift List recommendations in the comment section. The more challenging the better!
