The theme for this month’s Thrifty Six collaboration is “Inspired by Travel”—what a fun prompt, huh? Immediately my mind started racing with visions of Parisian chic looks, tropical accessories, easy floral dresses perfect for the Tuscan countryside... But as I started to picture outfits I could create using pieces from my own closet, I realized none of the looks incorporated secondhand items, ha!

They’re just too fun to resist. I paired them with my pinstripe + polka dot button down, dark wash Express jeans, and dainty pearl accessories. The mint Kate Spade New York purse was a graduation gift and my new ‘everyday’ bag (contrary to popular belief, I do not usually switch my purses for every outfit—only for special occasion looks). Anywayyy, now that we got the outfit talk out of the way, onto this month’s recap! Continue reading “July 2022 Month in Review”
