Recycled Fashion Tuesday- Summer Staples Edition

When a new season starts or the weather dramatically changes (hello, hot STEAMY and oddly electric? LA) it's tempting to find new clothes to go with the new weather. However, you need not spend too much of your precious $$ or go much farther than your local thrift store- pretty much ALL of the clothes you need to get you through summer can be found second hand (with the very important exception of swimwear/underwear- for such intimate clothing, just buy new to be safe!) Take a look at some of these summer staples I found through thrifting that are weather-appropriate, on trend, and of course, cheap.  

The flattering and cute floral sundress, TopShop, $6
The always-in-style medium wash cropped jean jacket, $2
The fun and functional denim shorts, Zara, $3
The work appropriate bright ladylike dress, H&M, $6
The crisp white skinny jeans, Zara Premium Denim, $8
The soft and flowy cardigan- this one is made with cashmere and organic bamboo!, Ecolux, $4
And of course, the completely ridiculous, completely necessary crop top with cats, Forever 21, $3
Again, I found all of these essential summer pieces at my local thrift store! Be sure to check out your local (hopefully air conditioned!) thrift store for your own summer staple finds, and/or if you don't want to leave home, check out my eBay store to buy great clothes from me! Happy thrifting!
