Spring Forward & Save Tons!

I’m enjoying the last little bit of a vacation while I prepare for my new job and what else to do but shop for some fresh new looks to accompany the fresh new start! ? I wanted to give you a little example of some before and after that happens when you thrift.

You can clearly see what my spring wardrobe color scheme is, right!? Here are all the things I wanted to try on as I browsed the aisles in the new Goodwill at 34th St. N. in St. Pete. Side note I’ve mentioned before: get a cart! You’ll regret clinging to all your goodies while trying to look through the racks without dropping anything. Save those muscles for the grocery bags!

Luckily, I was the only person in the fitting rooms so no one minded me taking up a bunch of time trying on all my things. Some things I just loved didn’t work but that means they returned to the wilderness for the next Huntress.

Here’s the final photo. There are some real treasures here! A Vince Camuto blouse, brand new, with $89 tags still attached! A BCBG blouse, a Nine West tank top, a casual Old Navy tee, a workout shirt, and a generic stretchy pencil skirt in a fun color. A biiiiiig adjustment from my original shopping cart, but a great trip nonetheless!


Similarly, here’s a recent trip to the Gandy Blvd. location. My cart almost looks the same! I’m so glad Spring gave me a reason to clean out my closet.

And here is what I ended up with; OBVIOUSLY the shoes came home with me!

Donated Clothes for Fresh Starts!

2018 is shaping up to be a really big year for us. I recently accepted a position with a new company and have spent the last days in a transition period reflecting and planning for the road ahead. One thing I know for sure is that I’ll look good! And my new office space comes equipped with a pretty snazzy selfie feature too.

Before I left the old office, I had a silly time with our receptionist taking some ridiculous photos showing off my new favorite skirt from Goodwill.

I’ve had that dark teal top for ages, but loved it with this new little generic brand skirt I splurged on even though it really wasn’t a boutique item. $9.98 is worth it with a pattern like that!  I can wear this with so many colors. Keeping it paired with a neutral Nine West patent pump (also from Goodwill, of course) keeps the whole look tied together. Notice another favorite piece, my coral blazer, making a not-at-all-rare reappearance.

You guys know I love my florals! And we curvy girls really love our stretchy materials too.

Here’s a sneak peak at the selfie feature coming to an office near you!  I’m super pumped to be able to more easily share some #ootd posts with you. That’s “outfit of the day” if you’ve forgotten. Goin’ up, see you next time!
