My Thrifting Outfit: Simple Stripes

As I mentioned yesterday, Saturday didn't start off on a high note. By the time I was done with work, broke my camera, and went inside to change for thrifting, I didn't really feel like choosing an outfit at all. Naturally, I picked up the two closest things (my new Forever 21 skinny jeans and my striped shirt) and threw them on. I slid into my newly thrifted Bass loafers and I was out the door!

After a quick trip for a cheap temporary replacement camera, I thrifted my way through a pretty successful day :)

Here's what I wore:

Striped Top, Goodwill Outlet; Necklace, Good Samaritan; Jeans, Forever 21; Bass Loafers, Goodwill in Brandon; Purse, Goodwill Outlet

I'm pretty sure these are the only non-thrifted jeans in my closet right now. I just got them the other day at Forever 21 because they were almost thrift store cheap at twelve dollars. I didn't have any jeans this dark, and they are pretty comfy (although they are obviously pretty long, hence the cuffs!)

This picture was taken with the temporary camera, which is surprisingly 5.1 megapixels despite the super-low price. I can't wait to get a really decent camera, though.

My 24th birthday's this Saturday, so here's to hoping one will be in my near future!

I hope everyone has a great Monday. My chest cold I told you about yesterday has taken a turn for the worst, so I'm afraid I'll be off to the doctor :( (I really hate going to the doctor, so it takes a lot to get me there. Ugh sickness.)



  1. i hope you feel better!

  2. We have the same birthday!!! Alike in a couple ways, then!! :) I'll be 24 too!


  3. The stripes and dark jeans really look fabulous on you, love it!!! I know what you mean about F21, I bought my F21 jeans for $10, and they weren't even on sale, so insane.

    I really hope you feel better soon and can celebrate your birthday in style! I hate being sick during this time of the year, when it starts to get nice out. And good luck on getting a new camera. I think your temp photo came out quite nice.

  4. Thanks, Megan! :) I couldn't believe the price for the F21 jeans either! And Catie- I hope you have a great birthday too! :)

  5. Love the stripes!! so chic!

  6. The stripes are so cool! They seem to quite 'in' right now too--I need to find a stripey top now, lol.


I love your comments! You all are the best!
