Neutral Flares + Thrifty Monday

Ah, today is a combination post! I went thrifting this morning with my momma and will be sharing my finds with you in my outfit post! I found so many good things today — along with something really hilarious and amazing.

So here's today's awesome haul! I'm really excited about these cute items. While there aren't as many versatile pieces, there are some really great deals in here.
  • Tommy Hilfiger olive flares. I wore these in today's outfit! At first I purchased them in order to cut 'em into shorts. Once I tried them on, I kind of liked the wide leg. I haven't owned anything other than skinny jeans since high school, so this is a strange buy for me.
  • Bebe turquoise stone and suede bell bottoms. These are a doozy. Mom bought these for me because I thought they were so funny — and only seventy-five cents! I tried to find more info on these online but was unsuccessful. All I know is that Bebe pants typically retail for around $100. See below for an Instragram image of me trying them on in the store.
  • White House | Black Market Satin Rose Heels. Mom bought these for me, too. When I looked on WHBM's website, I found out that these are a current style they're selling — for $108! I'd say we got a pretty good deal at $4.50. I'm not normally into sling backs, but these are an awesome replacement to my destroyed Forever 21 stilettos. Now I just need to keep a lookout for some closed back heels!
  • Betsey Johnson Pink Rose Wristlet. I really, really needed a new makeup bag after my brown eyeshadow exploded all over my other one. I was honestly going to pick up a cheap one at Target, but I saw this cute little Betsey hanging and couldn't resist! Only two bucks.
  • Express sleeveless button up blouse. I wore this in today's outfit. It has nice epaulette shoulder detail, too! Bonus!
  • Black stretch belt. I bought this because I loved the closure. It loops in and out of itself and snaps!
  • Bebe pencil skirt. It's strange that I bought two Bebe items today considering that I never go into that store. The windows are too "club wear" for me. But this skirt is nicely fitted and has nice faux back pockets. Most Bebe skirts retail for around $90 and I picked this up for $2.50.
  • Sheer button up. This top is very sheer. I'm really into sheer this summer, but I might have a DIY planned for this...
  • Charlotte Russe plaid cardigan. I got this because it reminds me of a ruana. While I think two dollars is pretty steep for something from Charlotte Russe, I really liked how drapey this was on me.
  • Children's kitten book. This was only a quarter and I thought it was too adorable to leave behind!

Okay, you wanted to see the crazy pants, right? Here they are! Those are my "pew pew" hands. I was acting like a cowboy. I am going to hang onto these and probably do something nutty for Halloween! I find it really strange that these are made by Bebe!

Aside from that, Mom and I enjoyed some lunch and watched a crazy storm roll through. From what I hear it was pretty insane in Chicago and a ton of people lost power. Poor Chi! Much love to my Chicago friends and readers!

I am very excited to say that StyledOn put a little blurb about me on their Tumblr today! Fun, right? I recently joined StyledOn and really like it thus far.
