This past weekend, I hung out with friends in Baltimore. As usual, the hardest decision was to figure out what to wear for the event! These are my best girls, so I knew shopping would be included. We visited a high end consignment store in Timonium, MD, a private shopping experience, and finished with dinner.

I wanted to be comfortable, yet fashionable and make a statement. I discovered the following items from my favorite Goodwill locations and it somehow worked together for a dope look – all under $30!

Zara Crop Top $5
I was visiting the Bowie, MD location and browsing the dress location as I normally do, and stumbled upon a mustard color item. I thought it was a dress because of the section, but turned out to be a cute faux twist crop top. I loved the color and knew it would be a great transition item for the Fall because of the autumn tone. 

African Maxi Skirt $6
After I scored the top, I made my way through the store to the skirt section. If you haven’t noticed, I love bright colors and bold patterns. Tones of red and yellow flowed from the rack and it turned out to be a full maxi skirt with pockets. Yellow in the skirt complimented my crop top and I knew that my outfit was set!

Zara Sandals $10
The South Dakota Ave location is unique because I never truly know what I might find there. As I headed toward the check-out, I spotted some slides. What makes them special, is that they are embellished with a gold bar across the foot and fringe. I love Zara, but never seem to find good finds in their actual store, so these slides definitely were going home with me. 

Boho Rug Clutch $6
I love an over-sized clutch with personality and this clutch is just that. The only way I can describe the texture and fabric is similar to a rug or has a jute feel. The cream and black color of the purse goes with the skirt and brings out the detail in the sandals. 

My Saturday adventure was epic and I enjoyed myself. I got many compliments on my outfit and couldn’t wait to tell everyone that each piece was from the Goodwill.

No matter the occasion, find some goodies at Goodwill!
