My Thrifting Outfit: It's All in the Buttons

When I found a simple button necklace at Waterfront Rescue Mission thrift store in Pensacola, I didn't realize just how perfect it is. Everywhere I wear this necklace, I get asked about it.

'Where's it from?' 'What is it?' And the most common...'Did you make it?'

I wish I could say I had, because it's quickly become one of my favorite things. Here's what I wore with it yesterday: (You can thank the humidity for the blurry photo!)

Sunglasses, Love of Jesus; Polka Dot Shirt, Goodwill; Sweater, Goodwill; Jeans, Goodwill; Leather Backpack, Goodwill Outlet; Leather Sandals, Love of Jesus (100% Thrifted!)
I also love this sweater, which was the very first thing I thrifted here in Richmond! It's tricky to wear, since it has to be neither too hot nor too cold outside to pull it off :)

The sandals I'm wearing (which you can't really see from the picture) I got almost a year ago as well. I just cleaned out my closet, so I found all sorts of treasures!

I hope your weekend is going well :)



  1. I love, love, love that sweater!!!! Totally on my thrift list now!

  2. Thanks!!! It's definitely one of my favorites!

  3. The colors in your outfit are perfect together, great combo!! p.s. I couldn't help myself and wore a metal necklace the other day.. still trying to get over the rash!! I need some button necklaces, we should go into business together ;)


I love your comments! You all are the best!
