Summer Fashion on a Budget

I love everything about summertime: going to baseball games, grilling hamburgers, swimming in the pool, devouring popsicles, etc. Although summer is perfect for enjoying various activities, my favorite part of summer is definitely summer fashion. However, being the wife to a PA Student, our clothing budget is not very large. Thankfully, by shopping at thredUP, my son and I can wear “like new” designer clothes for a fraction of price. Check out the trendy articles of clothing my son and I received from thredUP:

By glancing at this picture, would you ever guess that my blouse is second hand? This is something that I love about thredUP – each “gently used” article of clothing comes in pristine condition. By shopping on thredUP’s website, I can buy high-quality “gently used” clothing from all of my favorite brands, in the comfort of my own home. I love wearing this short sleeved striped blouse from The Limited ($11.49) with mint cuffed pants and a coral statement piece necklace; plus, that pocket on the front of the blouse is to die for.

Perfect for date night with the hubby, I love pairing my light knit Gap blouse ($11.99) with patterned floods and a little bit of bling.



Now let’s talk about these FANTASTIC shoes. These Simply Vera Wang Heels ($14.49) are one of my favorite thredUP purchases of all time. Besides wearing these heels with my patterned pants, I love pairing them with a black pencil skirt and blouse.


So, I’m a little bit obsessed with this Ann Taylor Blouse ($7.49) Its light and flowing material is perfect for summertime.

Not only does thredUP offer a wide variety of clothing for women and teens, but thredUP also provides fun and fashionable clothing for kiddos. Pairing this Nike Jersey ($6.49) with Puma Basketball Shorts ($5.49), my little toddler is ready to stay cool while playing with his favorite ball.

Could this OshKosh B’gosh romper ($5.49) be any cuter?

These ADORABLE Nautica shorts ($5.49) kill me! I love how cute my little man looks modeling these green shorts with a button down shirt and bow tie.

Just for your information, that’s 9 articles of brand-name clothing for $75! Who knew fashion could be so affordable? Want to update your summer wardrobe? Be sure to visit thredUP and browse hundreds of designer items for only a fraction of the cost.

I'm never disapointed with the quality or price of the clothes I get for my little man through Thred Up. I recommend them to every parent I know.
