#ThriftStyleThursday: A Very Pinspired New Year





Today's #tst post was a bit comical. I had originally planned to 'pinspire' the same outfit that Bethie (and I believe also Carissa) had both remixed. I woke up this morning, I thought to myself, "self, you got this!" and then I went on Facebook to discover those two ladies did it - and they did it better. 

So I thought, and I searched Pinterest, and I thought some more, and I remembered my newly thrifted Banana Republic Midi Skirt (see me? keeping my New Years resolutions already? yeah.), and I new I could come up with something. 

Now, a very cold (and very quick) photo sesh later, some red lipstick, and a borrowed necklace (Thanks Mom!), we're here. 

And thanks to Andrea over at Little DY Know for today's Pinterest Inspired theme! 






shirt // Nygaard, thrifted
skirt // Banana Republic, thrifted, Value Village
purse // Charles Hubert, vintage, thrifted, Value Village
booties // Payless Shoe Source, my closet
belt // Smart Set, my closet

Now go take a look and see how all the other wonderful #TST ladies have styled up their wardrobe for this awesome theme! 







And until next time, stay thrifty!

    1. Thanks, Bethie! Although, I don't look great in collared shirts, so this was probably for the best. :)

    1. Haha, thanks Andrea. I wasn't actually that cold. I think I'm just used to the cold now and have become numb (ha.. see what I did there? Numb? baha) to this weather. It'll be spring in like 85 million catrillion days, right?

  3. OMG, that's hilarious! I can't believe we all picked the same outfit! I'm sure you would've rocked it too. I really like what you went with instead though. I love the aqua and navy combo!

    1. Ha! I noticed you pinned a bunch of my skirt pins the other day! I used to wear dresses and skirts all the time. I love feeling feminine in them. And my toes are good. I counted 10, so they're all still there. :)

    1. Thanks, Megan! I want to do an entire post about that purse... It's totally vintage, and real leather, and looks like something right out of Pinterest (which for this post was good. haha). Thanks for stopping in!

    1. Ah! Thanks so much Justine! I couldn't believe I found a midi skirt I actually liked on me. I'm glad I got to show it off a little. I'll let my mom know her necklace is a hit. :)

    1. It's a Revlon colour. I'm not sure what the name of it is - I use it so much, the labelling has worn off! :) Thanks for stopping in, Pauline!
