Breaking Boundaries













Top ($5)--American Rag
Shorts ($3)--Macy's
Moccasins ($10)--Target
Bag ($3)--Thrifted

I guess I lied. I told you last week that it would be my last summer look post but this is another one haha. I couldn't resist with the warm weather and sunshine.
I also wanted to show off some pieces I dug up at my local thrift store. I'm not a huge thrifter, but lately I've been finding myself more hooked on thrifting because I feel greener buying clothes that are used (the great prices don't hurt either).
I named this post "Breaking Boundaries" because I went thrifting when I am usually a mall/new clothes shopper and because the combo of a sweet top and bold shorts is not your run-of-the-mill matchy outfit.
Just wanted to leave you with a quick update--by the way I got a lookbook! Hype away HERE (: 
See you soon!

Avec amour,
Lily

  8. To have the name of a kind of flower, you blossom with beauty with this outfit. Fall/Autumn may be coming, but it's still Spring or Summer with this outfit of yours. Love the entire outfit along with your charming sense of style. Very nice shoes!
