Hive Mind



The first time I was stung by a bee was on my 10th birthday. The second (and last time) I was stung was on my 11th birthday. This definitely created a bit of a panic in 11 year old me, this was not the kind of birthday tradition I wanted. They left me alone after that and I would say we’ve had a pretty good relationship since then- I respect the work they’re doing and they don’t sting me. Let’s hope I didn’t just jinx that.

Joules was kind enough to indulge my novelty print cravings and send me this bee print blouse. Button ups are always great for layering and remixing, and with the subtle pattern and neutral colors, I can tell this one will go a long ways.

top: bee blouse c/o Joules
skirt & necklace: thrifted
shoes: Jeffrey Campbell via Last Chance ($10!)

I also have good news if you’re a size 7 and live in the US (pretty specific, I know!)… due to a shipping mix up, I have a pair of these adorable floral rain boots in size 7 that Joules is going to give to one of you! And guess what else? They are lined. Yeah, I know, that’s pretty awesome to have shoes that keep your feet dry AND warm while looking cute.

Since this giveaway is pretty limited (US residents only), we are keeping it easy peasy to enter- just leave a comment with your favorite item on the Joules site. That’s it! You have until midnight on Friday the 19th to enter and I’ll randomly select a winner on Saturday. Remember- this is only for a pair in size 7.

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


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

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


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?

Don’t forget to enter the $100 gift certificate giveaway for your own thrifty shopping spree!
