Typical early summer weather in Southern California can fluctuate wildly from day to day and even throughout the day – from muggy and overcast to blazing sun and heat. I took photos of this outfit early last week right before a major heat wave. Luckily, it’s cooled down again so looking at these photos doesn’t make me want to cry… but this might be the last time I’ll be able to wear this thrifted cutout sweater this summer.
This pre-loved sweater is a nice, soft chunky knit with the added bonus of a fun cutout on the back. Perfect for showing off some of my fun, strappy bralettes! It’s also a surprisingly lightweight sweater, making it a nice addition to wear year-round. The jeans are dark wash skinny Gap jeans pre-thrifted (aka hand-me-down) from my mom.
The belt and bralette I got on clearance from American Eagle (separate shopping trips), and the shoes were actually clearance AE as well, except from Marshall’s haha! The necklace was handmade by yours truly – a souvenir from last summer’s trip to the UK! I also brought this sweater on that trip with me, and it was perfect for throwing over dresses in the chilly Scottish air.
The details: cutout sweater (thrifted) // strappy bralette (American Eagle) // skinny jeans (pre-thrifted) // gold slip-on’s (AE via Marshall’s) // tan & gold belt (American Eagle) // necklace (handmade)
