Forest Green

(top - old navy/thrifted, skirt - target/thrifted, belt - ?/thrifted, necklace - gift, shoes - ?/thrifted)

This outfit full of only thrifted or gifted items gives me so much joy to wear. Knowing I can pull together a stylish look for so little money only fuels my shopping addiction. A skirt for only $3? Of course I'll buy it. A belt that looks like no one has ever worn it before? It's mine now. I guess it's better than shopping every week at high priced stores instead, but thrift addictions can be serious too.

This skirt is one of my favorites to wear to work. It has such a lovely flow to it that it keeps me nice and cool throughout the day. The elastic waist keeps me comfortable and the knee length of the skirt keeps me work appropriate. This outfit is comfy enough that instead of wearing it to work, I wore it this weekend to lounge around my apartment and cook some delicious meals. Nothing like getting dressed up just to have no one around to appreciate it but you. Part of the joy of starting a blog is getting to share these outfits with someone other than just me!

This necklace is one of my favorites. It goes with just about anything and gives any basic shirt that extra punch of interest. As for the belt, I've had to restrain myself from wearing it with every outfit I put together.


  1. Cute blog! I'm with you - it's so much more fun wearing an outfit that cost next to nothing. You might be able to add another free item to you wardrobe...come check out my current headband giveaway :-)
