totally thrifted

i haven't done a totally thrifted post in a while, so i think its about time to give out some lovely secondhand inspiration on this fine monday afternoon. a definite fall staple in my wardrobe is plaid. i love plaid! there's something about it to me that just screams autumn. i love layers and plaid shirts are perfect for tying around your waist or pairing over a dress or even wearing oversized with tights if you're feeling lazy.


i was perusing the racks at a thrift store a few weeks ago when this amazing denim jumper just popped out at me. i always take it as a sign from above when such a cool piece like this is in my size. while thrifting you don't have the ability to find a dress in a small, medium, and large-- you've just gotta take what you can get. this just happened to fit me like a glove and i was already getting out my $2 (!!!) as i tried it on because it was a basically a match made in heaven.


i was feeling suuuuper 90s in this outfit last week. i mean denim dress, plaid shirt around the waist, and converse. it's like i stepped right out of an episode of saved by the bell. i'm all about denim lately. whether it is shirts, jeans, dresses, vests, etc. the only trick is to not look like JT and britney circa 2001. so besides going full-out canadian tuxedo, denim is pretty versatile.


everyday i wake up and pray that converse will never go out of style. so far, so good because i just can't get enough of these bad boys. in any season, you will catch me wearing them. they are just so damn comfy. and this shirt is thrifted from the men's section (obvi) because, come on, guys' button down shirts are just better.



this dress was easy for end of summer weather, but i don't want to retire it just yet. i'm hoping i can layer it up and keep it around this fall/winter season. maybe with tights and a chunky sweater? i will have to do some brainstorming. any ideas/inspiration to help a girl out? i'd love to hear!


this look is pretty simple, and i found some really cool pieces online at target if you wanna check it out! target is the bomb dot com and they have the best deals. i mean this totally sweet acid wash dress is less than $20. target, you can do no wrong.



enjoy your monday!
