Hello, friends! Soooooooo, this week has been straight up crazy! I am up to my chin in prep for my grandma’s 90th birthday party on Saturday, on top of my regular job, babysitting my twin 6-month-old nephews, and all the usual stuff like sleeping, eating and maintaining some kind of personal hygiene, of course. Nah, I kid, it’s not quite that bad, but it IS crazy, which is why I decided a fun, evening stroll through the neighborhood with Derek’s husky, Maya, was the perfect opportunity to blow off some steam and snap some photos for a blog post!
The shorts and shirt are from my latest thrift haul; I got the shirt for $5 and the shorts for only $2.50! They had a rip on the side so I haggled for a discount and then sewed them up at home. The shirt was a little big on me, but I fell in love with the print and the neon colors, so I took it in a little on the side seams and now it’s perfect. I also really love this style of workout shorts, with the compression shorts peeking out underneath. Plus, the neon colors in the shirt and shorts match, AND they’re perfect for the “bold and bright” theme of today’s Thrift Style Thursday!
The details: neon aztec print shirt (Xhilaration, Target, thrifted) // neon and gray workout shorts (Champion, Target, thrifted) // Nike Free Flyknit (Nike Factory Store) // neon orange sunnies (Walmart)
Okay, so there aren’t a ton of photos in this post, but I figured I’d make up for it by putting in more photos of one who we all know is stealing the show anyway, miss Maya. Besides, I am pretty sure she looks better in my sunglasses than I do! ;)
Isn’t she a doll?? So, how do you feel about neons? I am a big fan of color in my wardrobe, and I love neon accents!
Please don’t forget to head over to Sheri’s “Gone Thrifting” page to vote for next month’s themes, or feel free to comment with some of your own suggestions. Oh, and be sure to check out my fellow thrifty gal-pals to see just how bold and bright they went this week!
