My Thrifting Outfit: A Little Hippie

I had to work yesterday morning, and by the time I got out, the weather was perfect! Sunny and 70 degrees is my kind of weather! I threw on a couple newly thrifted items, including a vintage Coach purse, and was out to enjoy the sunshine.

Since the hubby was working and my tripod isn't in working order, I balanced my camera on the back of my car and snapped a couple photos with the self-timer. I liked this one best, since the camera caught me mid-step:

Michael Michael Kors Shirt, Goodwill Outlet; Vintage Flowery Vest, Love of Jesus; Ripped Jean Capris, Goodwill; Vintage Coach Purse, Goodwill; 90s Jantzen Slip-Ons, Love of Jesus; Sunnies, Salvation Army (100% Thrifted!)

Funny story about the Michael Michael Kors top. I actually had been eye-balling it at TJMaxx about a year ago, waiting for it to go on super-clearance. But it never did, and $20 or whatever it was was too much for me! But last Saturday at Goodwill Outlet, I grabbed this one out of the bins, and it's my size! Good things come to those who wait :) (Or, good things come to those who are too thrifty to buy something full price...)

I love this vest, and I've been waiting to wear it in the spring. However, it makes me feel a little bit like a hippie! If only I had some peace sign sunglasses, I'd be set :) Ha ha. And the vintage Coach bag? I found it at my local Goodwill the other night! It's in perfect condition, too. I might sell it at some point, but for now, it's mine :)

I found some great things yesterday too, for me and the shop! More tomorrow!



  1. You look fabulous! I love the picture, great job. The capris look so great on you and the 70's vibe is really working. The vest is amazing!! Have a great Sunday :)

  2. A great look and I love all the wonderful finds. I love how that Michael Kors shirt came to you! Those capris are too cute!!

  3. Thanks, ladies! I am totally loving these capris, too! They are soooo comfy!

  4. Holler at me if you decide to sell that thing, girl! It looks wonderful and I am willing to pay! :)

    I really love your vest, too, even if it is a bit hippie-ish.

  5. Thanks, Alya! I actually might sell the bag pretty soon, 'cause I got a pretty awesome vintage leather bag tonight at Goodwill :)


I love your comments! You all are the best!
