Black and Blue with a Touch of Bright

I accidentally wore my Gunnar glasses home from work on Friday so I’m wearing them this morning to I can take them back to work. I wrote about these glasses a couple of months ago. They really help with computer glare. A must for any blogger!

bright bag

Tank: Old Navy
Top: Gifted
Cardigan: Thrifted
Pants: Eileen Fisher via Goodwill
Shoes: John Fluevog
Necklace: Boutique in Las Olas
Watch: Florida street market
Tote: SNAP Designs

Funny thing is, the glasses match my bag. I grabbed this sunny yellow tote because the rest of my outfit was so neutral and I wanted to brighten it up.

details of outfit

I have a few Florida pieces in this outfit. The watch, top, and necklace, to be exact. I loved this mesh top. My mom and I were each going to buy one but the sales guys kept changing the price and changing their story about the sizes in stock so I decided not to support their store. My mom bought one anyway and later gave it to me because she knew I’d regret letting this walk away. She was right! Bad service aside, I do like this 80s-inspired mesh shirt.

thrifty look

I have a few thrifty pieces in the mix too. The cardi and pants are thrifted. The snap-band watch was $5 (although I still haven’t figured out how to set it). The top was gifted but the price my mom paid was reasonable ($15 I think). The necklace was on sale for $9.

How do you handle bad service in a store?

  1. Great find! That is what I like in thrifting we find things that are awesome.


  2. Normally, I do what you did if there is bad service … walk out!! I expect good service for my good money. That black mesh top looked great on you and I am glad I bought it. Hope you enjoy wearing it and think of our wonderful vacation in Florida every time you wear it! 🙂

    • Thanks for doing that against our better judgement. The top definitely reminds me of Fort Lauderdale. It’s so versatile. I’ll wear it many different ways. And you’re welcome to borrow it anytime.

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
