Three Looks for Three Days

A beautiful California weekend! I have recently picked up some good finds in my thrifting adventures and put them to good use this weekend.

My friday night was a girls night on the town (ok...it was really a girls night spent at one of my favorite mexican restaurants and a chick flick movie rental...not so much a night on the town). I pulled together my outfit using my new layered ruffled skirt that I found at the fabulous SAVERS! I have been looking for one of these ever since the JANE Issue on Ruffles.

I paired the ruffled skirt with a Target white tank, thrifted black peep toe heels and this orange belt found in a pile at an estate sale.

Saturday night was time to catch up with my hubby since I had been out the night before. My most recent find that makes me giggle with glee are these amazing Jou Jou high waisted jeans I found at SAVERS (once again!). I am not sure when these were made - maybe in the 90's- but they definitely have the high waist I have been searching for. On a side note - I usually don't look through jeans at a thrift store because I rely on my brands that I know will fit just right, but recently I have been digging through the racks, and let me tell you there are tons of great jeans to be found (current brands and GREAT vintage ones as well).

I paired my new love with a simple black tank from The Limited (bought years ago) and this beautiful floral headpiece that I found at an estate sale. I chose to wear the headpiece with a simple yet stylish outfit.

Sunday was really a day of bliss. A picnic in the park by the ocean and dinner on the swing in our backyard. This turned out to be the perfect "day-in-the-sunshine" dress. I found the dress on our summer excursion to Birmingham, AL in a thrift store I just had to hit up. I love the pattern, and though not pictured, it has this really interesting cut in the back.

I paired the dress with layers of necklaces (channeling Janis Joplin), a scarf found at another garage sale and my trusty Target shoes.

Now on to another week....

Those high waisted jeans are fantastic... I really like the dark wash. It makes them so much more modern.
