I’m back at it today with another Thrifty Six collaboration, where five other bloggers and I showcase our secondhand style. This month’s theme was chosen by Lucy and is ‘autumn outerwear’. While I have a handful of thrifted blazers and the teal fur coat I wore for January’s Thrifty Six post, I wanted to challenge myself to style a piece I haven’t worn for a collaboration yet. I landed on this funky knitted jacket!  Continue reading “The Thrifty Six Style Autumn Outerwear”

For once I can say that the month of September felt very long—not in a bad way, but Labor Day weekend feels like forever ago.

Immediately my mind started racing with visions of Parisian chic looks, tropical accessories, easy floral dresses perfect for the Tuscan countryside... But as I started to picture outfits I could create using pieces from my own closet, I realized none of the looks incorporated secondhand items, ha! I had forgotten the whole point of the collaboration… I shifted gears and decided to embrace a much cozier option inspired by a recent vacation of my own—the mountain getaway I took to Breckenridge a few weekends ago! Yes, it might not be as romantic as some of the European-inspired outfits I was imagining, but the girls I saw in Breck were sporting some very cute sweaters and booties, making me very excited for fall. It was the perfect excuse to break out my secondhand camo buttondown!  Continue reading “Travel-Inspired with The Thrifty Six”
