Happy Valentines Day! It’s time for another Fancy Friday post. Fancy Friday is an idea thought up by Dolly of Substance and Style to encourage people to bust out their glad rags to celebrate the end of each week.
This is an outfit that I wore to visit my grandparents earlier in the week. It was HOT that day. I know I keep going on and on about the heat, but it was scorching. I wanted to wear something light and cool but with plenty of colour. So I went for some second-hand goodies.
I am wearing:
– Blue camisole (thrifted)
– Yellow wrap skirt (second-hand) from The Dookie Emporium.
– Brown Zu sandals (thrifted)
– Heavy gold-tone bangle (thrifted)
– Brown resin ring (thrifted)
– Tortoiseshell sunglasses from Jay Jays.
Wearing this skirt was a bit of a gamble. It’s a synthetic fabric and I wasn’t sure how cool it would be on a hot day. Luckily it was really comfortable and lovely to wear in the heat. I just love the print and colour of this skirt. I don’t usually wear yellow, because it tends to make me look really washed out. However, I find that if I keep the yellow shades away from my face it looks just fine.
This blue camisole is one of my favourite op-shop finds. I love the deep, midnight-blue shade and the lace detail. It is also really satiny and cool against the skin. It matches the blue tones in the print of the skirt perfectly too, which I love. The best part about this cami? It cost fifty cents. No joke.
It just goes to show that you don’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars to get a cute, colourful outfit. When I tally up the cost of this outfit, it goes like this:
Camisole: fifty cents
– Sunglasses: $15
– Bangle: $6
Total = $42.50.
An entire outfit for less than $50. You can’t complain about that.
What are you wearing this Friday?
