My Thrifting Outfit: A Cardigan + Stripes

I've been getting pretty good mileage out of my striped 3/4 sleeve sweater this fall. It's the perfect thickness for the 60-something days, and layered with a cardigan, it's super comfortable!

I wore this outfit this past Thursday morning to hit up the local Goodwill for some 'new' pants. (I was partially successful!)

1980s Ray Bans, eBay ($14); Striped Sweater, Goodwill; Jeans, Goodwill; Leather Flats, Goodwill Outlet; Leather Bag, Souvenir from Italy Trip 2006; Plane Necklace, DIY; Cardigan w/ Belt, Kohl's (Gift from mother-in-law. Thanks!)
I just cleaned out my closet and found this awesome leather bag that I bought in Italy when my family and I were there four years ago! I looked at hundreds of bags in Florence before deciding on this buttery leather one, and I'll keep it forever :)

I also found these red flats I got at Goodwill Outlet last year. They fit perfectly, and I like how the pop of red looks with the navy blue!

I have to work this morning, but I'll be hitting up my fave thrifts after. I have a couple more little Christmas presents to find before Thanksgiving break, so wish me luck!



  1. You look so cute! That purse and those sunnies really look fablous.Good luck with your thifting.

  2. I'm so in love with stripes. I keep telling myself to stop buying so much, but it's totally become a "neutral" pattern for me. Love, love, love.

    I need to get with my Christmas shopping...
    Hope your thrifting was successful!

  3. Thanks Emily and Myriam! I'm totally obsessed with stripes right now too :) And I did find a couple Christmas presents!!


I love your comments! You all are the best!
