Frugal Fashions: 3 Easy Summer Styles

Hey everyone! I’m back with another frugal fashion post to showcase some of my recent acquisitions. I’ve really had to tighten down on a somewhat restrictive budget, and I really try to keep my finds under 10 dollars for these posts. I’ll be compiling outfits in different ranges in the future!

I’m really quite thrilled with this particular post, and I feel like the things I found really speak to me. Two of them, I need to put some accessories with and I can’t quite make up my mind, but I’ll be sharing that too in the future! These finds come from a variety of stores, mostly thrift shops like Goodwill and Valley Rescue Mission, Plato’s Closet with one item originating from Forever 21! I was playing with a couple different styles and I’m really so thrilled with how they came together, so without further ado… Let’s get started!

Style one:

This style started with the skirt and the shoes, which I came across at one of the 2 Rescue Valley Missions that we have here. The skirt for some reason gives me tennis vibes, despite the floral pattern. Speaking of the floral, it’s proven difficult to pair. I spent an entire week hunting for a perfect shirt. The original shirt was striped, which is usually a no-no, I know. I still feel like it would have been salvageable if I’d found chunkier stripes.

I ended up settling on an offwhite off-shoulder blouse from Forever 21, which I adore for their cute, trendy and affordable fashions. And, quick note off topic, they have the most adorable graphic tees and camis right now. I almost caved and bought this charming Boba Tee, but decided to be responsible.

The teal shoes are Dollhouse brand, which I’ve been looking at for years. I’m literally so excited to have some of their adorable shoes in my collection. The best thing about this outfit though is that this skirt is a Skort, and so has loads of modesty. It also has pockets, which I’m super pleased with.

This outfit will be paired with gold layered necklaces and hoop earrings. I really aim to play more into the cute vibe that’s coming from the shoes with this one. And, honestly, different shoes would also go great. Maybe some white sneakers? 

Style Two:

I haven’t shown it lately, but I love the hippie-boh aesthetic that I can never really dress for, but always wanted to. I actually thrifted this entire outfit, essentially. The shoes came from Target, and were gifted to me by the beautiful Sincerely Southern Belle, who you guys may recognize as our own Miss Jeans. 

The Festival tank and crochet vest came from Platos Closet and the skirt was liberated from Goodwill. This outfit is so free feeling and appropriately enough would be perfect for a day at the fair. I’m so excited to wear this out and about on an adventure. Looking at the lovely blues makes me feel like finding a fair on a pier, it’s a real shame there’s nothing like that here.

This is a style I really hope to lean into in the future and channel my inner Hippy. Maybe pair it with a leather headband and a necklace like this.

Style Three:

 

 

Lately, on the tails of that gorgeous bohemian style skirt, I’ve been on a boho kick. I’ve been obsessed with soft colors and that entire aesthetic. I was really going for something different with this outfit, and wasn’t expecting to fall in love with shorts. Honestly, I was aiming for another, shorter skirt but didn’t find one. I was striking out left and right on my search for another thing to add to this list, and had gotten my heart crushed by innumerable cute skirts.

Immediately, I was completely infatuated with this shirt- the soft teal and the cursive, just thrilled me. It feels like such a cheerful outfit, really. I paired this slightly rustic feeling, lace detailed shorts. Of course, I did also pair this outfit with my infamous converse. But, it would also work with some low wedges in light earthy tones. I can totally picture some pink accent jewelry with this one. Sadly, I didn’t find any that really spoke to the aesthetic. With a charming little style like this, I’d definitely accessorize with some natural stones. 

I just wanted to share some of my favorite new styles that I’ve found recently with my beautiful readers! I’ll be back with some other news and new styles in the next update to this series, until then, stay glam!
