Thrift Style Thursday – Hippie Dippy

April 28, 2014

Hello, friends!  I realize that it is not Thursday and that this post is a little late, okay a lot late, but better late than never, right?  I am finally feeling better, thank you everyone for all of the well wishes!!  I just have a bit of lingering congestion and a slight cough, but man does it feel better to wake up in the morning and actually have energy again!

As you may have noticed last week from the other TST’ers, last Thursday’s theme was “Happy Hippie / Boho Chic;” so, here is my own (belated) Hippie Dippy look:

I got this pair of white jeans during a recent thrifting trip for an extra 50% off (that means I paid only $4!) along with a few other great items (also 50% off – yippee!).  I actually intend on turning this pair of jeans into a pair of shorts for summer because the legs are a little too skinny/tight for my taste, but I thought they’d go great with this old hippe-style tunic.  The blouse is an older one from Old Navy when the whole hippie/bohemian trend came around years ago.  I’ve kept it in my closet because it makes a great addition to a hippie costume, and because I think it’s pretty.  :)

I will be honest, I don’t wear a ton of boho items, but I’ve always loved the style and recently I’ve tried to incorporate it more into my wardrobe.  I love the variety encompassed in the hippie/boho style, from flowy, light, airy pieces to bold colors and patterns, there’s so much to play with!

The details: linen tunic (Old Navy, old) // white jeans (thrifted, Goodwill) // tan wedges (Mia via DSW) // drop earrings (gift) // wooden bead necklace (borrowed from Mom) // bracelets (old, gifts) // silver leaf ring (American Eagle) // other rings (old)
