Tee – Old Navy; Skirt – J. Crew (thrifted); Sandals – Payless.
This was actually my Memorial Day outfit, but I saved it for Skirt Week. I knew I wanted to share a thrifted skirt, and this skirt is one of my all-time favorite finds. It’s an easy and breezy piece to wear (100% silk will do that). The stripes match, which is how you know any striped item is well made. And the tomato red is perfection. Do I really need more justification?
P.S. Shopsense totally failed at finding an even remotely similar skirt under $100. Boo.
Blazer – Paul & Joe for Target (thrifted, similar); Dress – Old Navy (exact); Scarf – gift (handmade); Belt – Forever 21; Tights – Burlington Coat Factory; Boots – Target (exact).
Yesterday, the weather was glorious. Like 60° F and mostly sunny-glory. In January. In the northeast. I was on cloud nine for sure.
It’s no surprise then that my outfit had to match the weather, and my mood. I forgot I had this blazer hanging in my closet, which is silly because it’s one of my favorite thrifted finds ever. The last time I wore it, I challenged myself to wear it with something other than gray. And, well, here we are. In chambray because it might as well be a neutral.
Oxford Blouse – Old Navy (thrifted, similar); Dress – Liz Clairborne (thrifted, similar); Oxford Heels – Payless (exact).
Last week I finally had the chance to meet Callie, one of my favorite blogger friends, in person! Callie is so sweet and motivated! She was in Philadelphia for a PR conference (you may remember I guest blogged over at her blog Coffee and Cardigans) so it was great to squeeze in a quick chat — and outfit photos of course. So nice to not have to use a tripod!
Sorry if the photos are excessive, but again, so nice to have a photographer! These were taken in the courtyard of City Hall, one of my favorite spots in Center City. I originally got to know Callie through her Thrifter Thursday roundups, so I couldn’t help but wear a couple thrifted pieces! Between the oxford shirt and the oxford pumps, though, this is the preppiest I’ll get — I was actually inspired by this pin from StyleUp.
I tried my best to define my shape with my skinny belt, but overall, I’m not sure if this outfit worked on me. I do love the print on the dress though — little triangles! Still one of my favorite thrifted finds.
