Outfit of the Day: Birthday Fit and Flare

July 11, 2016

What a wonderful weekend I had, as I hosted my Birthday Thrift Crawl, Part Deux, in Santa Monica with a gaggle of friends! This Outfit of the Day is whimsical and carefree, much like my energy that day. See more of this summery look after the jump!

“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” Romans 12:10

In what has become tradition, I hosted my second annual thrift crawl, which brings me no shortage of merriment and delight as I get to do one of the things I love most (thrift) with the people I love most. I was overjoyed being in the presence of friends who I hadn’t seen in months, and it was just one big love-fest. We caught up and got into some good-natured hijinks, made off with some AMAZING thrift finds (check back here on Thursday for the big reveal of my thrift haul) and laughed. A lot. The good vibes were contagious, as we brought the party to the Assistance League Thrift Shop and American Cancer Society Discovery Shop, where the cashiers were bubbly and happy we brought in some extra dollars that day. Saturday was a gorgeous summer day — not too hot and plenty sunny with a gentle breeze — so I seized the opportunity to wear this cute ensemble. I’m kinda channeling ’90s gem Blossom, and possibly Blind Melon, with this daisy-covered fit-and-flare dress, which had lots of give for the delicious plate of nachos I devoured at El Cholo at the end of the crawl. The criss-cross straps are a fun little surprise, by the way.
