SUMMER FATE

(Top, Glassons. Tobi shorts, Trademe.co.nz. Calvin Klein jacket, Recycle Boutique. Shoes, Converse. Necklace, DIY.)

Bargain hunting has always been a useful skill of mine. I would say that 70% of my wardrobe consists of items that were purchased for less than their recommended retail price. Most of them were either in store purchases during sales or promos, or second hand pieces from online sites such as TradeMe (New Zealand's version of eBay). It was only really this year that I started exploring the world of Op Shops; and what a wonderful world it is!

The perfect denim jacket has been on my wishlist since forever, and I just couldn't seem to find one that satisfied all my requirements. Light wash denim, slightly cropped, well-fitted, with pockets and no embellishments/extras. So when I walked into Recycle Boutique to found this gorgeous Calvin Klein denim jacket with an amazing price tag and a perfect fit, I think it was just meant to be. And it came at such a perfect time too; I can't wait to wear this jacket all summer long ❤
