What are the summer thrift essentials you need? Let’s start with a little bit of sunshine, great company and delicious food. If you have all of those, you’re already set. Now to add some style to the scene on a budget then check out your local Salvation Army Thrift Store. 

The one summer thrift essential I have been wanting lately is a fanny pack. This item was top of my summer wish list and, of course, my local Salvation Army Thrift Store delivered! YEAH! This fanny pack is everything as it has lots of colour; making it loads of fun.

Oversized glasses are always a ‘yes’ for me. The bigger the better. I have no idea what brand these are but for $5 and the style, I didn’t care! These white sunglasses are great with a casual outfit or dressed up for a night out. 

Easy to wear sandals. You know the ones: You can beat them up, take them off without undoing the strap, wear them in the water, and not worry about them. These black sandals have become my summer slippers. I find myself wearing them every day as they’re perfect for the beach or around the house. 

I love looking for pieces I want and that will complement the summer wardrobe I’ve already curated. Summer essentials are not about starting over with your wardrobe but rather adding to what you already have. The best place to do that is your local Salvation Army Thrift Store.
