totally thrifted

this three day weekend has been everything i've wanted it to be so far. i've gotten the chance to relax, catch up on blogging, sleep in as late as i want, and spend time with anthony. never in my life have i appreciated a weekend more than i have this weekend. commuting into the city every morning and coming back every evening makes for little free time and not a lot of sleep. my weekends are going to be more precious than ever, now! full of a mixture fun stuff and a whole lot of nothing.


on saturday, anthony and i spent our day at the mall. we hit up the food court for lunch (moe's-- yum), saw a movie (august: osage county--amazing), and, of course, shopped til we dropped (tons of work clothes for the both of us--yay). it was a great way to spend a saturday. we ended it by making some pasta, baking cupcakes, and watching gilmore girls. we've been sort of on a binge since i picked up the whole series on dvd at a thrift store. talk about a miracle. it's one of the best shows. ever. right?!


i realized it's been forever since i've done a totally thrifted post and when i put on this outfit i couldn't believe it was all thrifted items. i didn't even plan it that way! it worked out great because posting more totally thrifted outfits is definitely something i want to focus more on this coming year. thrifting is such a great way to expand your wardrobe while saving money at the time. and since one of my new years resolutions is to manage my money better, it seems like killing two birds with one stone.



i felt awesome in this outfit. the leopard pants, the slouchy beanie, the bright colored clutch-- it might be one of my fave outfits to date. and of course it was just icing on the cake to find this beautiful turquoise wall to be the back drop for these photos. it's moments like this when i'm so glad i have this blog. it's such a great hobby and a fun way to express myself. :)


this fun outfit can be recreated at forever 21. obvi. they are the perfect place for fun patterns and bright accessories. plus, the prices! i mean a pair of denim skinnies for 22 bucks. you just can't beat it. 


well i hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend just as much as me! enjoy the monday off (if you have it) and happy MLK day! 

xxoo,

  15. I need to try a totally thrifted look one day. What a great way to repurpose vintage items and mix them together. I'm especially a fan of the bright clutch. Enjoy those lazy weekends!
