This past weekend was a BLAST going to see Twenty-One Pilots' Bandito tour up with my fam in Sacramento! I definitely wouldn't describe my style as punk or rock, but I wanted to dress up for the concert without spending too much. I've been loving the combat boot trend this fall (I love the Chanel ones but they are $$$!) however I really didn't want to invest in an item that is considered "trendy" vs a wardrobe staple. In comes trusty Target to save the day!
I found this pair at Target from their Universal Thread brand for under $35! I danced all night and they were SO comfy. No rubbing or blisters! I've found some higher boots can rub at the top around the ankle/calf, but not these. I'm between an 8.5/8 and went with a size 8 which fit perfect. I wanted them a little tighter so they are not so bulky. Now through the 9th of November ALL boots from Target are BOGO 50%! My mom and I actually both got boots so we got the great deal! You can shop directly by clicking the photo of the boots below!
Since I've started reselling, jeans have become some of my very favorite items to flip! They are made of more sturdy material and last longer + certain pairs hold their value very well and can make for a very profitable margin. The jeans rack is usually one of the first places I start in a thrift store, so I've been seeing a LOT of jeans and I've also been doing my research on jean brands and trends to make sure I'm buying what people are looking for.
One trend I am seeing a LOT this spring is the distressed crop fringe or raw hem jean. Being at 5'8", I often find an average size jean is too short and a tall size is too long, so I like a crop jean because it doesn't really matter where it hits my leg when it is over the ankle. Plus I love the fringe/raw hem and distressed detailing that makes it easy to wear casually or really fun to dress up!
The BP (Nordstrom junior's brand) pair I am wearing here are actually a thrift store find (shocker!) and were only $5! Below I've linked a bunch of crop raw hem jeans that are on major sale right now and all under $35 (some of these were originally over $100!) To shop you can just click the link below, and it will take you directly to the website to purchase.
As far as the rest of my outfit, I'd been on the hunt for a double breasted oversized blazer and picked this Mango one up for myself at Goodwill for $9.99 (which was actually a little painful for me haha #resellerprobs) but it was brand new and I actually couldn't find anything anywhere else cheaper! I've shared these Frye boots before but gosh I wear these every other day and just love how chic and comfy they are. They are still on major clearance online, and I've linked those as well as similar blazers, one as cheap as $8, below to shop!
Hi lovelies! I hope everyone had a fun fourth of July and a very short work week!
Of course I had dress accordingly for the holiday (are we *really* American if we don't wear our nation's colors?) and I also went a little overload on my favorite summer trend!
