Casual Summer Sunday Outfit (Bargain Style)

I have this really interesting sleeveless Worthington top with asymmetrical sleeves that I found secondhand.   I love the colors in it and the line pattern makes me think tropical. It’s fitted and lady-like in its cut.

Aside: I also have a Ronni Nicole sleeveless dress in similar colors that I got at Ross marked down to a few dollars.  Something about black/white/lime is very appealing and not a combo I see often.

But this is about the top. I combined it with black shorts. The shorts aren’t dressy but at the moment they’re my only black shorts and I tried them on at it worked. The slight flare in the loose shorts offset the snug fit of the top.

Now here’s where this outfit gets fun. I have knock-off Vans I found at a Five Below store. I like them fine and have gotten good use out of them. They looked just right with this outfit.

Awhile back in a post on “Free and Cheap” things I’d acquired, I showed a couple pairs of sunglasses. I thought the polka-dot cats eyes would be great with the top.  Found at a big indoor yard sale at the fire house, they cost a quarter!

I wore my hair high in a bun and went with large silver hoop earrings. I typically wear colorful, dangly earrings but with a flashy colorful top I sometimes tone down my earrings and any other jewelry and “let the clothes do the talking.”

This is the only other jewelry I wore, a wide green cuff (fiund at a yard sale) that doesn’t get lost with the flash of the rest of the look.

    Black, white/cream, lime are the colors I selected for my blog and I like those colors with black long shorts or pants. I like the two tops and the dress. I don’t feel attractive in dresses (my Mom dragged me kicking and screaming to get me in a dress) and I hate that because casual dresses would be easy breezy here in hot Florida. I don’t do sleeveless anymore because… upper arm scariness. I DO like those colors!

      I had to go see your blog colors.😊 I like dresses but my lifestyle doesn’t really call for them – although I’m not above matching summer ones with sneakers so I can walk around. It can’t be easy living in Florida and foregoing sleevelessness!
