Kimono + Stripes

Halter Top- Brandy Melville
Kimono- DIY from an old Scarf 
Boots- Thrifted (similar here )
Shorts- Thrifted 

I ironically I am not a fan of aquatic creatures ( its a borderline phobia) but out of all the kimonos I own . this one is still my favorite, even though it is decked out in dolphins. Seeing how its black and goes well with almost anything might be why. As you can tell I haven't been able to give up my love for black and dark outfits even in the middle of summer.
The first thing I want to mention is my love for this hat! It's had my back (or head in this case) through many bad hair days and its a major life saver. I even when out and bought the same one in light brown, you need to be prepared was my justification cause bad hair days can turn ugly at a moments notice. 
halter tops is also a staple every girl should have on hand cause they are so easy to throw on for an effortless look. I got this one from Brandy Melville and it was pretty inexpensive. I might go back and grab a couple more in black and white for layering in the fall.

Thrift Haul #3

Last week I stopped by my local thrift store (when don't I ) and picked up a couple of things. I mostly went in for T-shirts for some DIY tops, but I obviously couldn't resist buying a hand full of things. 
The first thing I throw in my basket was this awesome knit sweater! I've been seeing knits like this one pop up a lot lately (like here and here ) and when I found this one from under $5 I was like why not !?! Its not made of the traditional wool like material but rather a material thats a like tougher which I liked because I am not the best when it comes to handling delicate fabric. Plus I've been in need of some more white staple pieces in my wardrobe. 
Next I picked up three T-shirts that I am going to be using in a couple of DIYs. The thrift store didn't have the best collection of baggy shirts but i was able to find a couple cool ones, my favorite being the tie-dye shirt. I also throw in an oversized off-white button down cause you can never have to many. 
This loose fitting boyfriend jeans, is also something I've been in the market for lately and got lucky when I came across this pair. They will look so good with crop tops and cropped knits in the fall. 
Late thing I got was this adorable stripped crop top. I got it mainly because it had a cool 90s feel to it and it looked so good with the chocker and black shorts I was wearing that day.
