Cool Blues and Heeled Shoes (For Under $46)
Hey there thrifty mamas!
It's Thursday, so you already know what time it is... #ThriftyThursday! This week's look was inspired by this fabulous sweatshirt that I found on a recent thrift trip. Blue and green aren't really colors that are found in my closet often, but I couldn't take my eyes off of this amazing sweat-top when I saw it. It was so pretty! It's a Forever 21 Men's situation, and I've always been a sucker for an oversized sweatshirt.
Even with that said, I must say I was still on the fence about whether or not to take it home... that is, until I got to the register and saw that it was only $4.99. Done. That top was coming home with me!
Wanna know where I got the goods?

When putting this outfit together I just didn't want to have to think too much. Luckily because this sweatshirt is so pretty it doesn't require much thought when it comes to styling; and nothing says easy like throwing on a pair of jeans!
At one point after having Arria (for some random reason or another) I went on a hunt for a super skinny leg jean. My hunt took me to thrifting in Baltimore where I discovered these amazing light washed jeans that only cost me six bucks! I can't express how much joy these jeans have brought me over the years. They' re almost always guaranteed to make my booty and legs look great. :)
The last missing piece to making this outfit pop was the simple straw hat. I picked up the hat partially as a joke, but then I put it on. The joke was on me. I couldn't believe how cute it was! With this particular look, the hat even brought out the greens in the top. So I went with it.
I dunno, that's pretty much it. Quick and easy, blue and breezy. What are your thoughts on the fit, and how would you've style it? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
#LiveRi¢h, and Happy Dream Chasing!
