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!
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!
