Thrifted Denim | Thrift Style Thursday

June 25, 2015

Summer has officially begun, and to kick things off, Beth of Bethie the Boo has chosen this week’s theme – “Sunshine on your Shoulder!”  Of course, I didn’t read the description, which challenged us to wear bright, sunny yellows and oranges, and instead I took it literally to mean bare shoulders.  Luckily, I also wore some thrifted floral jeans which I think fit the bill well enough.

I chose this fun thrifted open-back denim top with a pair of thrifted light floral jeans and a mix of vintage and handmade accessories.  The brown leather belt and shoes also help ground this look and separate the denim-on-denim.  And, of course, what’s a sunny summer outfit without a pair of sunglasses?!

Well, is my look sunny enough for this week’s theme?  What’s your favorite way to wear denim in summer??

    I think it’s a great look! I think anything that just makes you think of summer works for today’s theme! This top looks absolutely amazing on you! I love the floral jeans as well, the pattern is nice and very feminine feeling!

    I love the split in the back of that top – so cute! It may not be yellow and orange, but I think you nailed the summer-inspired aspect of the challenge. Great outfit!

      Haha thanks, Carissa!! I really can’t believe I didn’t read the description until after – whoops!! Oh well, I don’t think I have any thrifted orange or yellow anyway, so we’ll just call this my “cheat challenge!” ;)

    I love that you didn’t read the description on this style challenge. It’s about personal interpretation and I would of done the same thing! I love how the top opens from the back.
