A Classic Look for Class

 Hello my thrift hunters, I hope your week is going well. School has resumed for me, and I already want the semester to end! Hehe. I haven’t been able to go to Goodwill as much lately, but when I popped in last week I found this nice Ralph Lauren Oxford shirt.

Initially when I saw the shirt, I thought it was for a man, but it’s definately a women’s cut. The shirt was just $9.98 at Goodwill, which is amazing! On the Ralph Lauren website, it sells for $89.50! This is an absolute win for me.

I have just one in-person class, so I decided to wear the shirt paired with a White House Black Market skirt I found at Goodwill and the tunic I found at Goodwill and featured in a previous post. I wore the skirt on New Year’s (hence the noisemakers!) It was brand new, tags still on, and originally priced at $98 – the Goodwill price was just $9.98 — or about 90% off! Score!

I love to layer because the temperature has been quite cold in the morning and warms up in the afternoon. I was neither too cold nor too warm throughout the day, and I love the look!

 I think this outfit was cute and simple for lectures, studying on campus, or on a coffee date or hangout with friends.

What do you think? See you next time, I’m off to class!

Fit & Thrifty!

Happy New Year to you all! Just like that we’ve made it to another year, and I’m excited to see what this year brings.

My resolutions are to embark on a more healthy lifestyle journey and maintain my minimalist wardrobe. Speaking of a healthy lifestyle – a good way to begin would be to start training for the Hippie Dash for Peace, Love & Goodwill! It’s a super fun, unique race event!

I went to Goodwill the other day and there were so many donated items that were brand new with tags still on! I’ve never really browsed through the active wear section, so I decided to give it a shot – and I’m so glad I did! Since I plan to exercise more this year, I wanted to find new or gently used leggings. I didn’t have to look long, and there! I saw a pair of brand new leggings with the tags still on.

The Goodwill price for the leggings was just $7.98, but they retail for $34.99. I love the material (not itchy), the fit, the comfort and mostly the multicolored design! The leggings will pair well with other colored tops — this is a great advantage for me, as it will allow me to maintain my minimalist wardrobe.

I paired my new comfy leggings with shoes I found last year in Goodwill’s men’s section.

Did I mention the leggings also have those handy deep pockets? They hold my phone and debit card perfectly!

I’m so glad I browsed Goodwill’s active wear section! Here’s to a happy, healthy – and of course thrifty – 2021!
