End of Summer Style

With this in mind, I decided to venture to my local Salvos and try to style a few outfits that would fit with the end of summer vibes - and hopefully inspire both myself and the readers of this blog to take advantage of our last few weeks of warm (or warm-ish) weather by wearing some fun summery (or summery-ish) looks.
