As some of you may know - I'm absolutely obsessed with thrifting! Second hand shops are my JAM. It's not until the past year or so that I've realized how much my style and expressing myself have been so important to me. Before you go "Ew. Thrift shops are nasty and old and smelly." Take a moment and check this blog out! I understand - thrifting is NOT for everybody. But I encourage you to check out your local thrift stores and look for some unique and classic pieces. Pieces with character and stories behind them. I'm not saying everything in the store will be worth buying just because it's cheap, it's far from that. But you can definitely find some quality pieces - You just have to have an idea of what you're looking for! PLUS you're re-using quality clothing and giving it a second life, lovely isn't it?
I thrift shop a lot - probably an excessive amount. But I just find it so fun, you never know what you'll find! You can usually catch me wearing some funky 80's denim pieces or weird printed shirts, or men's boots...or all of that at once. I like to think my style is categorized as "quirky but cute grandpa" - so that's just flattering right? It looks better than it sounds I can PROMISE you that! ANYWAYS - I created a little "lookbook" if you may, of some outfits I'm loving this summer - ALL from various thrift stores!
Denim Overall Dress
(Minneapolis) Buffalo Exchange for $12.99
Black and White Striped Tee
Goodwill for $3.99
I've seriously had this Tee Shirt for about 3 years now - It's thick and still in great condition! I wear it all the time!
Large Light Blue Long Sleeve
Goodwill for $4.99
Obsessed with this shirt for the summer - lightweight and super comfy!
High-Waisted Denim Shorts
Goodwill for $5.99
I bought these as full jeans and decided to cut them for a 50's high-waisted short look!
Yellow & White Striped Tee
Goodwill for $3.99
Goodwill for $7.99
I bought these a while ago now but I ripped them on the knees, so it's a more comfortable option for breezy summer days.
