Thrifted Finds

thrifted findsI have been cooped up in the house for the last several days, taking care of my sick little one. Yesterday, I needed a break so I went thrift shopping while Daddy and Simon stayed home, and I found a few new items:

~The tank top was only two dollars plus change, and is a silky fabric with a pretty print and a very flattering fit. It will be great, paired with a pencil skirt for summer days that call for something a little bit dressier, or with a cardigan over it the rest of the year.

The skirt is something I have actually been looking to find for a while now, and I found this one for five dollars. I have been trying to find a casual skirt that will be great to toss over a swimsuit at the beach, or to wear to picnics, barbecues, and other casual summer activities. This one is made of a cotton blend that stretches, and it feels as comfortable as wearing sweatpants.

Finally, I have wanted a leopard print belt for a long time, but belts are very expensive, and as you might have figured out by now, I very rarely pay full price for anything. So when I spotted this one for two dollars, I did a little mental happy dance.

I am looking forward to mixing and matching these new finds with my wardrobe.

Have you done any thrifting lately?

  1. These are great finds – especially that leopard print belt for only $2!! It has been way too long since I’ve been on a good thrift hunt; sadly, the awesome Salvation Army right by my house has been discovered by the masses so it’s almost always completely picked over now. 😦 Oh well, I will just have to hunt further afield! 😉

    • Unfortunately, I live in a college town, so all of the college kids tend to frequent the Goodwill. But I still like to go about once a month and spend time looking through. Sometimes I find nothing, but I enjoy the zen and quiet of it after a day of being Mumma.
