Where's the Picnic? Red Gingham and Aqua

**Remember to follow, pin, and comment to enter in the  JunieBlake Giveaway!
Please ignore the strange muscle that bulges over my knee!  It happens when I run frequently.  Not the most attractive thing...haha.

I'm not going to lie, I kind of think this shirt looks like a picnic table cloth and I LOVE it because of that.  Even better is that I bought this Ann Taylor button up at Goodwill for a few dollars.  I couldn't help but rejoice.  I normally dig through the more vintage-looking items whilst thrifting, but can't help when I score something like this.  I've also acquired a J.crew gingham shirts for a few dollars at another thrift store and was excited that I didn't have to fork over $88.  Also, I'm kind of growing out of the bubble necklace phase, but couldn't help but wear this one I scored on eBay.  I believe it's missing two bobbles.  Quality craftsmanship for sure!  Anyway, the necklace went with my J.crew aqua bermuda shorts (I bought them for under $20 at J.crew Factory during the 4th of July sale) so I couldn't help but wear it!  I'm not sure why I chose to be so matchy, matchy by the way.


I scored this red leather Kate Spade bag from Gilt.com for $90.  Yes, $90.  I love a good flash sale.  The leather platform sandals are from Me Too and were purchased at Marshall's for $30, well maybe $29.99--another bargain.

 
Top: Ann Taylor via Goodwill, Sweater: J.crew, Necklace: eBay, Shorts: J.crew Factory, Purse: Kate Spade via Gilt.com, Shoes: Me Too via Marshall's, Belt: J.crew

So, my house is freezing right now so I threw on an old J.crew cable spring/summer sweater and replaced the nautical rope belt with my thin J.crew leather belt.  I'm sure when I walk outside I'll rip it off!  All and all I hope you guys are able to remark from my blog that you can buy name brand and even designer brands for a lot less.  I am all about the bargain.  I think it makes shopping more entertaining.  As such, I am going to try to wheel out a series of building a classic, quality wardrobe for less.  Stay tuned :)

Well, be sure to check out the JunieBlake Giveaway details so you don't miss out on a great opportunity to win FREE STUFF.  Yes, stuff :)  Have a terrific weekend and be sure to enjoy the sun!

  10. ah! i wrote an awesomely long comment and it got deleted! booo...
    let's see if i can say the write the same thoughts again...

    firstly, as a self proclaimed bargain queen, i have deep appreciation for people like you!
    reading all the prices for each items got my adrenaline going. i get such joy out of purchasing expensive item for discounted price. it's an addiction/hobby of mine.

    secondly, in my opinion, everyone and anyone can look semi-decent if they spend a lot of money on their outfit. but the trick is to look put together without dropping $88 of a gingham shirt at j.crew. and you do just that. and i love it. it makes me want to be your friend in real life and go shopping! ;)

    have a great weekend!!
