Looks for Less Challenge

As part of a recent collaboration with Savers Thrift Stores, I participated in a challenge to put together a few looks inspired by current trends, but using thrifted pieces.

Everything I’m wearing in these outfits is second-hand, minus two pairs of shoes, and most of it was bought on one recent trip to Savers.

Savers Look for Less Challenge

Blazer & Jeans: c/o Savers // Shoes: Blowfish (bought 2nd hand) // Necklace: thrifted

Compare to:
Free People floral jeans
: $168
Forever 21 striped jacket: $29

savers-look-for-less2

bow blouse & skirt: c/o Savers // Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens // Sunnies: F21

Compare to:
Modcloth bow blouse: $34
JCrew striped skirt: $74

savers-look-for-less3

tropical blouse & skirt: c/o Savers // Shoes: BAIT // Scarf: thrifted

Compare to:
BB Dakota Tropical Top: $49
Topshop Orange Mini: $76

I definitely splurge on new clothes too, and love shopping at the stores with compared pieces, but to keep refreshing my wardrobe on a budget I turn to thrifting. It’s also a good way to try out more trendy styles- like these floral jeans and Hawaiian print top.

Would you wear any of these looks? Is thrifting a part of your normal clothes shopping routine?

Keeping this short because things have been crazy this week. But I never got around to do a post on our New York trip, although I shared our day at the beach and happy hour with Chantilly. So here are some Instagram photos from that trip and other snaps from the summer.

Hope you’re having a good week!

Candy Colors

vintage-ladybug-skirt

For someone who doesn’t paint her fingernails very often, it’s funny that I’d have an outfit that started with the nail polish. But I obviously love these colors together as they are awfully close to my blog header…

skirt: available in my shop
top: thrifted
shoes: Swedish Hasbeens
apple belt: super old

I really can’t get enough of these shoes this summer and I would understand if you were sick of seeing them by now. These Swedish Hasbeens were a beginning of summer splurge, and while I kept telling myself I should play it safe with a neutral color, I really had my heart set on the red. I’ve even surprised myself with how much I’ve had to wear them with and don’t regret it one bit. Of course that means I still need to add a neutral pair to my closet soon, but this time I’m stalking ebay. I am convinced I will get lucky…
