The first of my new goodies from Sunday's shopping. I thrifted not one but two pairs of red pants for 99p each. One in a summer weight, the other more for winter. This red linen pant is so breezy. I actually have done this outfit before. Instead of a long sleeved blazer, I mixed it up with a sheer vest and sandals. The linen wrinkles. See this is me not caring. Why? Because I am comfortable. The shirt also has a good percentage of linen so despite being all covered up, the wind breezes straight through. If you'll notice in the previous post, I was babbling about red pants and how much I needed them. The old pair I grew out of (ha!), so I've been hunting another pair. It may take a few months, but I managed to find two! And at a ridiculously cheap price! Keeping items on your list while thrifting is a good idea, but don't lose heart if you don't find them right away. I never find what I'm looking for until I'm not looking for it anymore.
Red pants are a current trend, but they've always been a favorite of mine. Even before exploring fashion, I had a pair of red jeans. Wendy Brandes has numerous Red Legged round ups of bloggers on her blog and her posts on Huffington Post. If you haven't checked them out, why not?
Edit: Forgot to mention, we got a new water heater yesterday, so all is well. =D
