You guys. This is one of my very favorite outfits I’ve ever put together. I love these pieces! And Mandi models it so well! Eeek. So cool! So pretty! Love.
First of all, we have this amazing top by Corey Lynn Calter for Anthropologie. It’s a whimsical tropical print with the cutest little monkeys you ever did see. :) The colors are soft and springy and gorgeous. And I thrifted it for an unbelievably low price. You guys will not even believe this. It was marked down to 79 cent! But wait. It had a white tag. Those were 50% off. Oh, you think that’s crazy?! Just wait…It still had the brand new $118 tag in it!!!!!! I cannot make this stuff up! I am gonna put the pic of the tags at the bottom just so you guys will believe me. :)But thennnn, aside from that amazing top, we have these jeans. Oh my. I am so obsessed with these. They’re Z. Cavaricci Authentic Hand Crafted Vintage – that’s a direct quote from the tag. :) I love them. Love, love, love! They seriously could not be more on trend. Unless you live under a rock, I’m sure you’ve noticed the huge trend of embellished denim that’s currently sweeping the fashion scene.Right before our shoot, I decided to let out the hems on these. My sweet and sassy Grams was happy to take her seam ripper to these while I was styling Mandi. So this coolness was a group effort. :) I love the result! (Also, Mandi found these rad heels at a thrift store!)Aside from the standout pieces like the top and jeans, it’s so nice to have some great basics on hand to really round out your outfits. This classic open cardigan in a soft neutral can be worn with so many outfits! It used to be easy for me to overlook the basics like this at thrift stores (how can you blame me, with cute monkey faces stealing my attention), but lately I’ve been seeking out higher quality staples to complete my wardrobe. Mandi loved this one I found for her, and I’m sure she will got a ton of wear out of it!
See, I told you I wasn’t lying! :)
