Thinking about redoing my style

Well, I'm 21 and I don't think wearing some torn up Wrangler jeans and a Humble Pie T shirt I bought 3 years ago is going to cut it everywhere anymore. I'd like to keep a kind of hippyish edge to it, but I want to kind of spruce it up you know?

Any ideas of where I should look? I saw one ad in the GQ with Jennifer Aniston on it with an ad (I think it was for a company called Erpo or something like that), but what it had on its website was nothing like what it had in its ad. It was a bit too extreme hippy for me anyway.

This is more or less what I'm looking for:

Can't do the hair because I'm thinning out on top, but c'est la vie (besides I have yet to hear a complaint about my other genetic features ;D). Obviously I'm not going to go around with a jacket and no shirt on, too many jealous boyfriends I'd have to deal with. I also want to throw some western stuff in there too (think snap front shirts and maybe cowboy boots).

Lastly, I'd like to keep this on the inexpensive side, I only have a part time, minimum wage job. Beats the alternative, but still puts a leash on my endeavors. $50 max is probably what I can afford for a shirt, $70 for jeans/pants but I'd rather not let it get that high if I can avoid it.

Any idea on brands or stores I should look at? Also, does any body know of anyone who makes lightweight jeans? I live in FL and in about a month it's going to be hard to wear anything but shorts around here.
