Flea Market Simplicity

7.27.2011






( F21 top & shorts; Hollister belt; DSW sandals; Target sunnies & bag; Gifted bracelets )

I went to the flea market today, so I thought I'd keep things simple since the heat doesn't really permit layering clothes. Do they even have flea markets outside of Texas? They probably do, but in case your town doesn't, it's not somewhere to buy fleas. You can get those free. It's a giant outdoor marketplace where people sell things for cheap whether it be stuff they made or just their old junk from the 90's and such. Like thrifting!

I didn't buy anything (against the rules, remember?), but I had fun browsing all the random stuff which most of it I could recall from my childhood. I wish I could say I bought the bag I'm wearing at a flea market, but sadly, no. It's from Target, and I just couldn't resist getting it (before the challenge started, of course)! Lately, I've had a slight obsession for cross-shoulder bags. I love how they add a little extra oomph to an outfit. Still, I hate how I can only carry a couple things in it as opposed to my giant handbags which are able to hold my entire life. If only we had the technology to produce one of these. Then, I'd be set.

P.S. I'll be making some slight changes to the blog; no need to freak out! :)

  4. Stripes and florals are such a wonderful combination!! You look wonderful, and this is the perfect laidback outfit for the fleamarket. I love fleamarkets, they're soo fun

  5. Oftentimes I find that the heat does make it difficult to assemble outfits exactly the way I want them. That is why it is so important to have a few bold pieces that can stand alone, like your floral shorts and striped top.

  8. So first of all, you're gorgeous. Second of all, HOLY CRAP, you're Donnesh's roommate?!?! This really is a small world, haha. Now that I think about it, I think he mentioned that he had a friend who blogged too. :P

  10. Love the color of your shorts and the floral pattern! Did you really get that bag from Target? Would never have expected that! Way too cute though! I agree with you about Hermione's beaded clutch...if we really could invent something like that I would no longer have to carry around purses bigger than me.
