Thrift Inspiration............Blue and White Checks and Stripes for Summer

Hi everyone! I hope you've all had a great weekend, what with the freaky windy and rainy weather I haven't been up to a lot over the weekend- a lot of rest and relaxation, watching films, listening to music and indulging in my favourite pastime, pinterest. I've updated my cover boards and added more pins with my current summer inspirations, blue and white- in particular checks and stripes:




 

I'm wearing an All Saints shirt which is a thrift find from the St Francis Hospice and was only £2- this is my first time of wearing it and I've paired it with my black French Connection capri pants and black espadrilles:


I haven't worn the shirt 'blogger style' aka 'the half or full tuck', I'll check out this look another time!


I've been after a blue and white stripe shirt for ages now- I actually saw one at the boot sale a few weeks ago and should really have bought it, I don't why I didn't! Anyhow, I found a perfect one on Saturday which I'm hoping to get into an outfit very soon and these stylings have very much influenced how I may wear it. I don't own any white skinny jeans, so I'll substitute black or blue instead:

I think blue and white stripes are very chic and a smart or mens one can easily be dressed down with jeans and a blazer or black shorts, it's definitely a look I can't wait to start wearing regularly this season.

Are you hunting down anything in particular for this coming Summer? Black for Summer is also on my style radar and I'm keen to thrift some perfect cotton pieces, I'll keep you posted with any future finds!!

Wishing you all a great week ahead, here's hoping this heatwave we've been hearing so much about actually starts to materialise!

I do love a man's shirt on a woman....very subtle and sexy, and if you can pick one up at a thrift store or car boot sale, it makes for a subtle, sexy and 'very' clever woman too!! xx

Sharon S said...

Hi Net A Dresser! Oh yes I totally agree, my newly thrifted stripy one is a men's one and is such a fab fit, thanks! xx

Great styling and I am loving your pin boards too. Can I ask a stupid question. In terms of copyright and use of images on the blog, can you use images from Pinterest as long as you credit them?
Thanks xx

Sharon S said...

Hi Trayci- so lovely, thanks a lot! x

Hi Claire- I do try and make sure I say the pictures I use are from google or pinterest, I hope this is sufficient but if any one does require me to remove photos then of course I would! x

Ah yes blue and white in checks or stripes looks so fresh, yours is a great find and I think I might have to add one to the list. Have a good week honey xxx

Diary of a penny pincher said...

Great styling again! I love that check shirt on you, and I think I prefer your black capri pants to white jeans anyway. Those espadrilles are just gorgeous!!

Sharon S said...

Hi ladies-thanks for your thoughts, so nice to know you love the stripes and checks too, plus my own shirt and espadrilles, thanks!! xxx
