Thrift Store Homeware Haul

A few weeks ago on a New Year's whim, I talked to my boyfriend about renovating the little shack we live in, on a budget of course, and shortly after my life has been filled with paint cans, sandpaper scraps, messes, and many sporadic shopping trips. Between the Goodwill in my town and a few of the closest Salvation Army stores, I've found some new decor to brighten up what are now clean, but empty rooms in our rented home. I didn't have enough space to photograph everything I've been collecting including a beautiful wooden mandala wall hanging hand-carved in India, some cute moccasin house booties, and a whole lot of glass bottles and ceramic pots for my small succulent, cacti, and air plant babies. A lot of the pieces I found were authentically vintage and made in Japan which I adore, and add a bit of that bohemian flair to our somewhat modern style.

How often do you visit the thrift store?

Although snowflakes are still falling here in frigid Michigan, I can't help but hazily daydream about painting my toes, wearing light clothing, and enjoying all the perks of warm weather after winter. I recently browsed through the Reef website and found so many adorable, surf-inspired kicks that not only looked super stylish but ultra comfortable as well. I loved many of the pairs of sandals I saw, however the ones that made it to my must-have wishlist include the Guatemalan Slide, Starglitz, Beaded Moon, and Fanning from the men's line. What I'm drawn to from the collection is all the bright colors and textures that are still muted enough to match tons of outfits, and also the noticeable quality that will last through trips to the ocean and busy days out and about. In the past I have purchased an endless amount of cheap flip flips that had little to no support for my feet and had to be replaced each summer. Not only do they cause unneeded pain, but also requires wasteful spending of poorly made products that get ruined and quite frankly unattractive so quickly. Investing in a good pair of sandals is underrated and totally worth every penny, especially if you live in a cold climate where summer is only a few short months long. I find the higher quality enhances a true fashion statement while making the best days of the year even more memorable.

Do you daydream of summer fashion when the weather gets cold?
