Thrift Style Thursday, Vegas Edition – Laid Back

March 13, 2014

Hello, friends, and welcome to my “Vegas Edition” of today’s Thrift Style Thursday theme – laid back!  I actually found quite the thrifting haul the week before my trip to Las Vegas this past weekend and got a whole bunch of great finds – all for 50% off, including this tank top!


I wore this outfit on our last day in Vegas.  It was comfortable, easy and perfect for running around town seeing the sights.  This tank top is an American Eagle racer back tank that I found at a local Salvation Army for half off, only $2.50!  Here are some of the fun places I have already worn my new-to-me tank top:


The Neon Museum, the Natural History Museum…


…and this super cool mural that I found on a random street off the strip!


The details: American Eagle aztec print tank top (thrifted, $2.50) // light wash boyfriend jeans (American Eagle) // chambray sneakers (Target) // mint sunglasses (Tilly’s) // peace sign necklace (handmade) // assorted bracelets (handmade, etc.)


I love the laid back theme for today’s Thrift Style Thursday.  I practically live in jeans/shorts and a t-shirt/tank top; they are definitely my go-to combination when I don’t know what to wear.  I’m not sure if it’s a Southern California thing, but this is my default style; so, if you were ever wondering what I wear on an average day, it probably looks something like this!

What’s your style default??  Don’t forget to check out the other thrifting ladies and their laid back looks:
