Thrift Style Thursday - Cinco De Mayo

Happy Thrift Style Thursday!  And happy belated Cinco De Mayo!  This week's theme was chosen by yours truly.  I thought it would be fun to create a festive outfit to celebrate Cinco De Mayo and since a lot of places around here celebrate all week long, figured it also doesn't matter that it's no longer May 5th!  So, here is what I came up with!

For some reason, when I think of something Mexican inspired, I think of reds and oranges, so I wanted to feature those colors.  Probably because I'm thinking of spicy red peppers!  I added this fun scarf and even wore it a couple of different ways here - it would be a good shall for a cool evening celebration, but I also just wore it around my neck as well for  different look.

We're pretty big fans of margaritas and Mexican food at our house.  I think we have a Mexican style meal just about once a week, so it's always like Cinco de Mayo! We rotate between tacos, fajitas and nachos.  Once we start getting good fresh veggies from our CSA we'll rotate in Nate's awesome homemade enchiladas too.  I shared the recipe for those last summer in this post if your curious!

Shirt - Express (thrifted), Dress - thrifted
Scarf - Garage Sale, Sandals - Target 

Our Cinco de Mayo was low key, we enjoyed a margarita and nachos at home.  If we had gone out somewhere though I would likely have worn this fun outfit!  It'll just have to do for a day at the office instead, I'll just have a fiesta at my desk.  Desk Fiesta, ole!
