What I've Been Wearing

A lot of the pieces in this outfit are thrifted. One of may favorite things about thrifting is that it gives me the freedom to mix in pieces that are a little outside my comfort zone. I wouldn't of paid retail for this shirt or skirt. The print on the skirt is a little too much on the bold side for me and while some may consider plaid button-ups a staple I (for some odd reason, probably my rural roots) can find them to be a bit costume-y. When an item costs less than $5 though I'm much more willing to give it a try. This is my 1st time wearing the skirt but I've had the shirt for over a year and much to my surprise it's become one of my favorite tops. Here are some of the other ways I've worn it: 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5.

shirt + skirt + belt: thrift, boots: target, necklace: f21 

This bag is recent purchase from DSW. I had been looking for a large (in addition to my stuff i'm usually also carrying for three little people) structured cognac bag for awhile now and with a couple certificates and coupons this one only cost me $25! 

shirt: anthropologie, belt: thrift, pants: gap, purse + shoes: dsw

This was a date night outfit. We were able to score $6 tickets to see Iron & Wine at the Chicago Theatre through the date planning service How About We. The concert was amazing! Afterwards, we picked up come coffee & treats and then walked around the city a bit. Jeremy me the designer of the Crown Fountain awhile back so he was pretty pumped to get a few night pictures. 

dress: hand-me-down/fossil, shoes: dsw, necklace: f21
