(Outfit Notes: Green Top-Thrifted/Skirt-Thrifted/Earrings-Old Navy/Flip Flops-Old Navy)
As a (mostly) stay-at-home Mumma, relying on one person’s income while also trying to save for a house, I definitely rely on a well-defined budget. Jeramy and I each take $15 dollars a week to buy ourselves something, whether it be lunch with a friend, a new CD, or some Starbucks. In my case, I often browse the clearance racks for items to fill in my wardrobe. I recently also decided that going thrift shopping could become very useful to me, allowing me to find things without spending too much.
The other day I popped into Goodwill and ended up finding two skirts and two tops, for just over $15. That makes two entire outfits minus shoes. Not all thrifting trips are successful, sometimes I find absolutely nothing, but that day I was quite pleased.
The outfit here is one of the shirts I got that day, as well as one of the skirts. The top is GAP brand, so new it probably cost at least $20. (This is based on looking at other embellished tees on their website.) Green is my favorite color, and I loved the little sparkly embellishment on the pocket. It was an added bonus that it coordinated so well with this tropical print skirt. I have been keeping my eye out for a button-front skirt for a while now, and was excited when this one fit me. The print and the colors are perfect for this time of year, going into summer.
Since today was Father’s Day, and we were just taking it easy together as a family and doing a little shopping (for a new shower curtain liner, how unexciting), I thought flip-flops would keep me from feeling over-dressed. They are also comfortable for hanging around in.
I am really happy about this thrift shop success. Do you ever go thrifting? Find anything good lately?
