what i wore: thrifting

i love a very basic outfit and adding a splash of color and a shade of funky orange lipstick. when i can wear my orange lipstick, i'm pretty happy. this is the outfit i wore thrifting last weekend. the weather was nice and warm. it was a perfect day to wear my favorite shorts and to adorn my new favorite clutch i bought thrifting a few weekends ago.
 i love this bag and i am not one to always go for clutches because they aren't as versatile as shoulder bags and i can't wear it while riding. but the moment i saw this bag, i just had to have it. it is so cute and it has a woven diamond pattern on it to boot! sweeeet!
details:
 turquoise earrings:  gift from my co-worker
top: f21
shorts: h&m
shoes: thrifted
bag: thrifted

  6. very cute warm-weather thrifting outfit, love the splash of orange & turquoise too. And that bag is fantastic, I LOVE LOVE LOVE vintage bags, especially wicker ones like that (I have a white one that I simply love but am always looking out for a natural coloured one too) :) xox

  11. Such a cute casual outfit - I love the orange lipstick and that clutch is so cute! I usually don't got for clutches either, as I like to have my hands free, but this is very sweet with its wee handle.

    1. that is the reason why i don't like clutches either, i like being able to not feel confined or feel like i have to put the purse down to look at something. oh the things we do for beautiful things!

  12. Dude, you've got some killer legs. Love your shoes, sooo pretty and the lipstick looks so pretty on you. I'm pretty sure I'd look like a circus clown in that lipstick but you pull it off beautifully!
