Pick up key pieces to wear this summer season from the newly renovated OC Goodwill Boutique in Huntington Beach. I had the opportunity to shop at the third OC Goodwill Boutique location and found three summer outfits fitting for the beach or pool, a social gathering or soiree, and for running around town or meeting up with friends.
Ditch the swimsuit cover up or dress for an outfit that will easily transition from the beach/poolside to a lunch date. This sheer printed blouse features a rich yellow hue and shoulder detail. Because of the all-over print, it can easily be worn over a simple bikini top or bathing suit without looking like you’re wearing swimwear underneath. The mint-colored shorts are airy and loose, perfect for a hot day, and is tied into the outfit with the mint accented print of the blouse. Instead of flip flops, a tan espadrille-platform sandal is worn for a trendy and easy-to-transition to street look. The backpack is chic, and gives the look a youthful flare.
Floral print is here to stay, wear the trend in the form of a flowy maxi dress for your next social gathering or summer soiree. Floral print is a wonderful print to wear during summer, it’s cheerful if the print is made up of vibrant colors like this maxi dress. To dress up the look, neutral espadrille wedges were worn, and the cobalt blue clutch pops against the print and also complements the blue tones of the dress. Cover up when it gets breezy with a light kimono-like cardigan. If you’re not a fan of floral print, find a maxi dress with a print that resonates with you, or go for a solid color dress and play up the dress with statement accessories like bold necklaces, earrings, or chunky bracelets. Wear your dress with sandals for a casual look or wedges for a dressier look.
Stripes & A Pop of Color
Wearing stripes is an easy way to add dimension to an outfit, this look features a bold black and white stripe print on a sheer blouse that ties at the waist. The top is livened up for summer by being paired with a bright, coral colored skirt. The flouncy, a-line skirt styled with the top to gives a fresh and relaxed, but still put together look. Keep the outfit fashion-forward with a pair of flats like these d-orsay cut, textured black flats; and a cute cross body bag instead of a big tote or satchel which makes moving around town effortless.
