100 percent thrifted

Clothing-wise, this outfit is 100 percent thrifted, which is a pretty amazing thing considering the fact this outfit includes jeans. I never thrift jeans, but one day, I thrifted not one, but two pairs of jeans. It was an impressive and memorable day. This outfit features one of those pairs of jeans. 


I was pretty happy to find them. I don't even know why I decided to look at jeans that day as I never bother to since the sizes are all mixed up and hunting usually ends up unsuccessful.


Glad I did though! Jeans success. The top was also thrifted, and it's featured in this post. It's a good lazy Sunday top in my opinion. (And when the occasion arises, a good energetic Saturday top too!)


The purse was not thrifted, which makes my 100 percent thrifted claim a little shaky. 


But these shoes were thrifted! Funny fact: I bought my sister these shoes (you know, new and in her size) for Christmas from Target, and then I found another pair in my size at a thrift store about six months later. Now we have matching Dorothy shoes!


The purse is from Esty. It is my summertime purse. When fall comes around, I might bring back my giant Mary Poppins-esque bag, but I'm keeping this one around for now.


This shirt is obviously about these details around the collar there. Silvery embroidery is not normally my thing, but maybe "my thing" is changing because I'm all about this.


And you may have noticed that I'm wearing jeans in August in North Carolina, which begs the question: Am I a crazy person? Answer: Nope. The weather is being wacko, but I'm all about it because it's nice and cool and feels almost like fall. Fall is the best season of all! I can't wait for it to come in full force!

It may not be 100% thrifted (the purse) but your outfit is 100% ethically sourced! Hurray! :)

Hasn't this weather been delightful??
Great top and thrifted jeans are a hard thing to find. The fit is always off for some reason
