Paisley Petals

Prints are always refreshing and unique, no matter what season it is!

Silk can keep you cool and breezy in the summer.

Shooting in the village was really fun and beautiful. All the apartments were adorable and some had their own little garden! I fall in love with any neighborhood in Manhattan with cobblestone streets!

Mystic Mint Leaves

Layering can be a pain in the summer, but it’s possible to stay cool by tying up a sleeveless button up shirt. This is much lighter than actual outerwear.

There’s just something so cool about wearing black in the summer. You’ll actually stand out in the sea of florals and neons.

But a few accents of color is always fun!

Wear a high-low tank to cover up those short shorts! Mom’s request.

Thrifting in Williamsburg

Williamsburg is my favorite neighborhood to go thrift shopping because they have a variety of shops with a lot of good merchandise. I usually stop by Buffalo Exchange, Monk’s, Crossroads Trading Co, and my favorite, Beacon’s Closet.

Beacon’s Closet

The first time I went to the Williamsburg Beacon’s Closet, I was so overwhelmed by the amount of clothes they had. Thankfully they organize their clothes by color so it’s a pretty easy look through. I’m usually able to find some cool, unique pieces here too.

I was so happy to find these hot pants in my size! They’re comfy and I love the gold tone in this knit.

This dress has an elegant cut, but its material allows it to be worn casually. I was happy this was in my size, since it is a fitted dress. But the slit is what really got me!

I love the over-sized floral and bright pink color. It’s a sweet, but fun print. The silhouette reminds me of a peplum blouse, which is everywhere this season.

Buffalo Exchange

Buffalo Exchange doesn’t carry much vintage pieces, just second-hand. They’re great with keeping on-trend merchandise with pretty good prices.

I love a little twist to a basic T. The silky bodice can keep you comfortable and chic.

This dress was one of those “So cute, I have to have it!” purchases. It basically combines everything I like: lace, high-low skirt, open back, and my favorite clothing colors!

I hope this encourages everyone to visit their local thrift stores, or make a trip to Williamsburg! Just make sure you’re in the thrifting zone, because it does take a lot of patience and energy. It’s tedious to look through a bunch of old clothes, but it’ll be worth it when you find that cool vintage piece for a low price!
