Summer Thrift Haul

I realized after my latest thrift adventure that I haven't been sharing it with you lovelies! This week is tax free week in Connecticut, so I made sure I took advantage of it. I might do just a little more shopping before the week is over. All summer I've been working on adding prints to my wardrobe, if you couldn't tell from the majority of my finds. I think I'm most excited about the first one. It fits like a long jacket although I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be a dress. I want to hem it right after the second to last set of buttons. It would then be the perfect length with a mini skirt and leggings, woop woop!

I'm also pretty excited about the red/chain/animal print top. 100% silk, 100% awesome. I already know the outfit I want to pair it with and I CAN'T WAIT. Possible 1st day of class outfit :O) Speaking of outfits, for the black and white skirt I wasn't sure if I had a top to match, so I went to the mall right after and found this rad neon "H!" tee. I thought it said "Hi" and thought it'd be perfect for the club fair since it's all about recruiting members....but then my sister pointed out that it says "H!" not "Hi"....woops! Oh well. Still a cute outfit.

From now on I'll remember to post them as I get them and not a whole lumpsome! I would love to go into detail about each and every piece but....that might be a bit much for this post. I'll probably save that for avelooks.

Have you found any thrifty treasures lately?


  1. first one is pretty :))

  2. I really like the first one and the mustard yellow sweater. Good finds! I actually have been finding quite the treasures lately in the local thrift stores around my town. This past Tuesday I got a pink and white polka dot vintage dress for 70 cents! It fits perfectly, and just needed about a 3 inch hem!

    1. woah! 70 cents :O) That's so great! Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to see that dress; it sounds adorable :)

  3. Ooh the sweater looks so cozy! I can't wait until the weather cools down so I can bring my sweaters back out and not look like a crazy person (it's super cold in my office so i'm often in a big cardigan thru the summer).

    I found your blog thru Love Elycia and I really like it thus far :)

    1. Aww thank you so much! And I loooove cardigans so I'm more than ready for the weather to cool down

      P.S. I wouldn't think you're crazy....I've been wearing cardigans to work all summer too :P

  4. Oh I love the mustard sweater! super cute once it's fall/winter!
    Goodwill's the best.. I love shopping there and finding such great deals.

    I love your blog overall!
