Paisley + Velvet

It's been a while since I've had time to do some solid thrifting, but I was finally able to hit the racks during last week's Work Ready fashion show event at Goodwill, and I scored some super cute pieces for fall. Two of my faves include this paisley top and this comfy black velvet mini skirt, both of which were $8. (Paisley shirts are always easy to spot at most thrift stores, but velvet can be a bit tougher to dig out, so I also found this on-trend velvet skirt in several colors for just $20 on

I ended up pairing both items together over the weekend, rocking them with a pair of booties from Public Desire, scored on sale from Asos for just $22. (They're currently sold out in most sizes, but Asos has a few other PD beauties on sale, including these, these and these!)

I topped off the look with my fave green felt hat (around $20, scored while shopping in Japan, but I found a very similar one available here for $19!), and a pair of $5 street vendor sunnies. My black patent bag came c/o Boohoo, and it available for $30 here. Head to toe, the whole look came out to $63.
