It’s gettin’ hot in Australia, and I’m struggling, y’all.
So, all of my spring/summer clothes are currently not with me so I’ve given myself an excuse to shop — on a budget. There are a few thrift shops (they’re called op shops in Australia) and they have some pretty decent options and at a decent price. In my opinion, thrifting is a little more exciting than shopping at a normal retail store because you never know what you’ll find! Plus, it saves you lots of money.
I’m a little bummed that I can’t dress in cute sweaters and coats like most people in the world during this time of year, so I’ve had to get a little creative with my wardrobe so as not to get a little bored with the same outfits that have been on repeat for most of this year.
I’ve been keeping my eye out for:
- high-waisted shorts/skirts
- versatile short-sleeved/strapped tops
- hair scarves
- summer dresses/rompers
I’m proud to say that I was able to find a few of these items recently.
I found a couple of tops that are both comfy and easy to style with different outfits.
They’re both lightweight for the hot weather which I really appreciate. And on that note, hair scarves are essential if you want to look cute with your hair up. It’s not fun playing around with hair tools when it feels like a sauna in a house with no easy. Not. Fun. Oh and that’s another thing, why is there no central A/C in the houses over here?? Anyway… I thought this hair scarf can make any ponytail/braid look adorable.
I was also able to find some high-waisted shorts that were a bit long but shorts look cuter when they’re rolled up, in my opinion. High-waisted anything is also great for those bloated days, I’m sure we’ve all experienced the uninvited glutened bloat. Know what I’m sayin’?
I also found a bonus belt that goes well with the shorts and other high-waisted bottoms. There’s nothing worse than wanting to wear a belt that’s too big for the waist and then having to poke your own holes to make it small enough which may or may not completely butcher the belt.
I also found a book during my thrifting excavation. So that’s always a win.
