Hot Pink Chili Peppers

Head to Toe: Blazer, thrifted // T-shirt, American Apparel // Jeans, Siwy // Bag, thrifted // Sneakers, Kate Spade x Keds

Happy hump day friends! The weather has been beautiful this week and I can't wait to enjoy a sunny weekend! These festive chili-pepper Keds felt appropriate for the warm weather, along with yet another thrifted straw bag. Also, I think I'm developing a pink theme (I even wore a peach-colored poncho yesterday). Who said New Yorkers only wear black?

Thrifting 101: Summer's Straw Bag Trend

Head to Toe: Too, Marshall's // Jeans, Buffalo Exchange // Jacket, Gamiss // Shoes, Seychelles // Clutch, The Vintage Thrift // Glasses, Izipizi

Happy Monday, fashionistas! And a happy belated Mother's Day to all of you mommies...I have to apologize for the radio silence, it's been more than three weeks since my last post! It was an unintended post-move hiatus, but we are finally feeling settled into our new apartment and loving our neighborhood. I can't wait to share photos when the place is all done. We're getting there!

Sean and I have been exploring a lot of secondhand shops searching for a new (err old) dining table, and while we struck out on the furniture front, I cashed in on straw bags. I found this clutch at The Vintage Thrift in Gramercy and got a bigger tote at Unique Boutique on the Upper West Side. I'm loving this trend for summer, especially because of its thrift-ability! Trust me, before you order that style online for $50 or more, check out your local consignment shop. I saw a bunch of options in every store I stopped in this weekend, and each of the bags I bought—I had to resist getting more—were under $12. (New Yorkers: try Housing Works, Goodwill, Buffalo Exchange and the shops I mentioned above.) Don't forget to share what you find!
