#ThriftStyleThursday // Groundbreaking Florals



tank // Roxy, thrifted, Value Village
skirt // Joe Fresh
cardigan // Denver Hayes, thrifted
flats // Tommy Hilfiger, Winners


When I chose the theme for this week, I was committing to the biggest groundbreaking style idea for the spring season. Florals.

I did this because, 1) I love the movie The Devil Wears Prada and 2) any excuse to have Meryl Streep's judge face in a blog post is obviously a win.



But really, I was expecting to come out of a thrift store with a cute little vintage floral piece that looked straight out of Etsy or ModCloth. What I came up with, though, was this clearance Joe Fresh skirt, and the CUTEST mint green shear floral mesh back tank. Not what I expected at all.

I love that pastels are making a resurgence for springtime. And I love that, shoes aside, this whole outfit cost me under $25. (I say shoes aside, because these beautiful Tommy Hilfiger flats were $59.99 at Winners). It's a pretty good feeling when your florals are both original and completely on trend! It almost makes me a superhero of thrifted fashion. (Is that too cocky? I hope not.)

So, groundbreaking indeed. Even Meryl has to admit to that.

Now go see what lovely florals the other TST ladies have thrifted, and get yourself inspired with some lovely spring florals!






See? Superhero of thrifted fashion. I think I'm on to something here.

  2. The pink and blue-green are great, but then you throw in a graphic b&w skirt and BAM! Perfection! I love the open and lacy back of the top. Super cute outfit for a super hero!

    1. Thanks Carissa! I was really inspired by this unconventional floral, and the striped cardigan is such an awesome match for basically everything. I love florals, though. Such a staple in my wardrobe.

  3. LOVE that Meryl GIF, too funny! I love that movie. I also love this skirt, black and white floral is nice alternative to some of the bright florals you often see at this time of year. And I adore your mint top!

    1. Thanks Beth! The mint may or may not have (but really was..!!) inspired by some of your recent pin-it spin-it posts. I love mint! I would have never chosen it unless you'd first shown me how awesome it is to wear!

    1. Joe Fresh. I don't know if you guys have Loblaws in the USA, but if so.. it's there. I'll keep my eyes out though - you're a small? I love thrifting for other people, now! :)
