Double Seersucker


Hot as Hades today. It's probably safe to say that Sacramento summer season has officially begun. While omelets could have been frying on the sidewalk, people oozed  onto their car-seats and ran their weekend errands in the form of melted butter. The Sunday soundtrack was the drone of air-conditioning blasting the air like a heated dirge of sizzling bag pipes.


But yours truly was prepared. Barely broke a sweat. Cool as a cucumber in an icebox.   She was wearing her double seersucker. 

The outfit was all thrift save the accesories: the ring a Porkchop Rules original and the bucket tote was Butt Ugly. The top, a double home-run in a gingham-printed seersucker, was a demure '50's blouse and it paired nicely with the recently Thrift Town score of blue/white striped seersucker shorts. Super comfy, and quite the deal at $1.99.  The shoes were brand new, never been worn (until me) Etnies Plus wedges with a limited edition blueberry print that are as comfortable as they are adorable. Quite the find at the Goodwill in Roseville.
See for yourself:

Very nice! It looks very similar to an outfit my grandmother wore in a picture from a beach vaca, circa 1955. She loved gingham and seersucker, and who doesn't! And the backdrop was a nice touch too:)

The shoes rock and are perfect for your outfit.

I love Goodwill! I visit the two closest to home and work every week and never go home empty handed and it is a great place to bring the things you no longer love and need a new home(and are not technically vintage:-).
