The first thing my mom said when she saw this look was, ” Tor what an awesome look for walking around the city! ” Now, when I looked at I envisioned myself feeling a cool breeze off of an ocean on vacation or skipping through a field of daisys by a farmhouse lol! But that’s when I knew this look was a hit! You could rock it anywhere this summer and it’s all about envisioning where you want to be, how you want to feel, and accessorizing with confidence!
In my mind the star of this look is the duster… my mom bought it online somewhere for like $10… might have been Zaful.com, but regardless she originally bought it as a button front dress! Well, as you know us P4P Gal Pals always look at things for what they can be, so I kept a few buttons still buttoned on it, slipped my arms through, like a long sleeved bolero, and made it a duster by keeping the front of it in the back! Now, I could have just unbuttoned the whole thing, but it wouldn’t look as fitted, so keeping those few buttons buttoned, gave it a whole new shape as a duster that blows behind me in the summer breeze!
To compliment that carefree vibe I threw on a cropped Free People dusty blue top for $19.99 from TJ Maxx and my favorite pair of Paige Denim jeans from Marshalls! The denim wash isn’t too BRIGHT BLUE which keeps the tone of this look more ocean breeze than POPPY.
Topped it with a straw hat from Sole Society, which you may remember, and then an AWESOME fringe boho beach bag from Target! It was priced $45 but you can always count on a good buy one get one sale there so it came to half price with the cost of a bathing suit cover up I bought for my Mom 😉
This look is fun, summery and transportable where ever your spending your day in the sun! And it’s those bold accessories like the hat and bag, that if you dare to wear, pull your style out of the ordinary and into the sky! That’s Polished for Pennies! Don’t be afraid to shine this summer! Do it big! Have fun with your fashion and take some inspiration from this look and feel finnnnnnnnne!
