Need for Tweed

Who doesn’t love a good thrift store find? I always seem to find gems when I go thrifting (although maybe that’s because I have more of an eclectic style than others.)

My most recent thrift store treasure is this pink tweed blazer I found at Goodwill in Frisco! When I first came across it, I immediately knew that some people would find it absolutely horrendous (my sister even went so far as to tell me it looked Umbridge-esque), but I loved it. As I explained to my dad while we waited in the checkout line, “It slaps. Other people may think it’s ugly, but I think it goes hard, and that’s all that matters.”

I loved pairing the blazer in this #OOTD with a more casual skirt, shoes, and backpack purse. They helped me dress down the blazer for my casual-chic office dress code, but still keep the look tied together.

Do y’all have any tips for thrifting? My experiences have always been hit-or-miss. That partially makes it fun, but I’m also searching for a method to the madness! If you have any tried-and-true thrifting tactics, share them in the comments! I would love to hear them.

Strait-Laced

I’ve been wanting to try out this look for a while, but haven’t had a chance until today! It was still a little windy, but since rain and a cold front are coming through tomorrow I figured it was now or never for this #OOTD. I’m so glad I took the chance!

By now, you all know what a huge fan I am of turtleneck and mock-neck shirts. I found this forest green one while thrift shopping in St. Augustine and was so excited to find a mock-neck item that I continue to wear into spring and summer (most of my other turtleneck items are long-sleeved or sweaters.)

SHOP THE LOOK:

Scrunchie: Black Scrunchie – Walmart
Top: Mock-neck Tank Top (similar)
Skirt: Lace-Up Skirt (similar) 
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

Overall, this outfit was a little chilly with the wind, but otherwise perfect! Can’t wait to pair this mock-neck tank with some other spring clothing items soon. Stay tuned!

It’s Always Sunny

Yesterday was literally such a good day! My mom came into town to watch my concert band concert and we were able to spend the afternoon together beforehand. I don’t get to go home much in the spring so I am so thankful when my parents take time out of their day to come to me.

I knew we would be doing some clothes shopping so I wanted to wear something that would be easy to get on and off as we went to different stores. The weather also got up to 50 degrees for the first time in a few days, so I wanted to give my legs a breather and not confine them to jeans for a day. This shirt is kinda short so I wasn’t sure how well it would stay tucked in my skirt, but it did really well and I ended up loving how this look turned out!

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Earrings: Smooth Metal C Hoop Earrings – Target
Turleneck: Yellow Turtleneck (similar)
Skirt: Lace-Up Skirt (similar)
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas

I hope everyone has a great day, and keep checking in to see my next #OOTD!
