Valentine Thrift Love

Valentine’s Day came and went without me blogging about my finds, but no matter! Everything I thrifted from Goodwill is still perfect for lots of different occasions, like a picnic date or a visit to a botanical garden!

Let’s start with these like-new shoes I found at Goodwill for $8.96.

I’m enamored by the lace design; the shoes look simple and delicate, but they’re also fun and comfortable. The lace fabric design adds a versatile touch — another way I would style the shoes is to pair them with a really nice suit for a relaxed business/casual look.

Then there’s the dress I found at Goodwill for $5.98.

I love the simple vertical striped pattern. It gives the illusion that I’m taller than I actually am- which kind of boosted my self esteem a little! The back ties mean I could elevate the waist a bit, and I think that helped make it look more flattering.

I hope you all have a lovely Valentine’s day!

If you spent the day alone like I did, know that you weren’t alone! Netflix was my Valentine!

Here’s to celebrating thriting, no matter what day of the year it is! XOXO

Hello Thrifters! I hope all is well and that you’re ever so proud of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers! Being from a country of soccer, it took me a while to be interested in football, but I’m so happy they won the big game!

Lately I’ve been consumed with work but I was able to fit in a quick trip to Goodwill – and wow I’m so glad I did! I found a great jacket, and a really nice pair of fitted blue jeans.

The jacket I found at Goodwill is this white puffer jacket from Dollhouse.

It was as new as new could be! I’ve never been into puffer jackets because I always thought they looked funny. This jacket certainly changed my mind and I knew I had to buy it! I love it! It keeps me warm enough but doesn’t make me sweat. And, the price was just $12.98!

Then I found this simple distressed pair of jeans.

The length and waist fit perfectly. I usually wear belts with most jeans, but I didn’t have to this time. The denim is very light and soft, and althought they are skinny jeans, I don’t have to do the “wiggly dance” to get into them! They’re my new favorite jeans now, and they only cost $6.98 at Goodwill!

When the evenings were a little cooler I wore the outfit I thrifted for an evening stroll.

What to wear to brunch?

Hey lovely thrifters, I hope you’ve been well! Am I the only one who felt like this past January was the shortest one ever?! Hehe.

So far I’ve been successful maintaining my minimalist closet; I hope you’ve been able to commit to your New Year’s resolutions as well. One thing I haven’t been so good at is keeping up with friends, so I decided to meet up with one on a brunch hangout.

I needed a simple dress and of course I had to check Goodwill first! That’s where I found this little green dress with pockets. I LOVE pockets! The dress captured my eye even though it looked kinda “boring.” (Except the pockets, of course!)

The price of the dress was just $5.98 at Goodwill, which is about what most dresses sell for at Goodwill. I’m on a budget, but I don’t mind paying $6 for a dress I know I’ll wear a lot!

I realized that a good statement collar could elevate this simple dress. So I decided to pair it with a pearl collared top and it worked really well. I felt like the “missing” element on the dress disappeared when I made that little style tweak!

See the collar peeking out from under these gorgeous flowers? 🙂

Unfortunately, due to a sudden emergency my friend had to cancel our brunch hangout. So I decided to take pictures in the dress, because why not?

If you’d like to visit these fun photo opps, they’re at 1113 S. Florida Ave in Lakeland, behind the Born & Bread Bakehouse.

Have fun, and thrift on!
