a simple and comfortable summer outfit, for less than $20 at Goodwill


I could say it's hot, and you'd most likely reply, "Thanks for the update, Captain Obvious." 

With sweltering summer days comes cool shades. If you're like me, you've got a pair for your car, an extra pair on your person, and one in your desk at work, just in case (because there's nothing like going out in public looking like you're trying to pull off the Clint Eastwood glare when it's really just the sun in your eyes, and you have no sunglasses). It's always fun to check out what Goodwill has in stock for eye wear, because it's not just one particular style. Aviators, Sport, Browline, Retro Square---whatever your pleasure! Since I am not a big believer in fashion over comfort, especially when it's 100 degrees out, I paired these black and gray patterned sunglasses with a yellow wooden bead necklace, cotton dress, and kicky multi-colored, beaded sandals. The entire outfit came out to roughly $15. Yet another successful shopping foray at your local Goodwill.
