July Thrift Challenge Reveal: Boys & Mens Fashion

This month Dina and I got our men involved in the Thrift Challenge by trying to recreate some fashionable male outfits. She challenged me with this casual beachy look (source unknown) for Dan, and this preppy hip look worn by Alonso Mateo. Luisa Fernanda Espinosa, Alonso's mom, is a fashion stylist. Check out her Instagram account for loads more fashionable pics of Alonso!


I nearly peed my pants when Dan actually went into full-on model mode and brushed his fingers through his hair. He even seemed slightly irritated that I didn't thrift a man-bag for him. So high maintenance!


The Thrifty Details:

White Linen Shirt, Cento | $8 | Village Discount Akron
Mint Seersucker Shorts, Polo | $8 | Village Discount Akron
Loafers, Dry Dock | $10 | Village Discount Akron
TOTAL: $26




For the boy's outfit, I had originally envisioned it for N because C can be pretty shy when it comes to this kind of stuff. But when he saw Dan doing it, he was ALL, ABOUT. IT!! He blew us away!! 


The Thrifty Details:

White Linen Shirt, Children's Place | $3 | Best Thrift, Oklahoma City
Grey Shorts, Cherokee | $2 | Village Discount Akron
Brown Loafers, Children's Place | $5 | Village Discount Cuyahoga Falls
Bracelet | Free | Dentist office treasure chest
TOTAL: $10





Now, let's head over to Dina's Days to see how she and her boyfriend Dan pulled together this sophisticated, business casual look I challenged them with!
