Travel-Inspired with The Thrifty Six

The theme for this month’s Thrifty Six collaboration is “Inspired by Travel”—what a fun prompt, huh? 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.

How stinking cute is this outfit?? Don’t mind me as I toot my own horn… I thrifted these fuzzy Steve Madden sneakers a while ago but this is the first time I’m wearing them. They’re just too fun to resist. I paired them with my pinstripe + polka dot button down, dark wash Express jeans, and dainty pearl accessories. The mint Kate Spade New York purse was a graduation gift and my new ‘everyday’ bag (contrary to popular belief, I do not usually switch my purses for every outfit—only for special occasion looks). Anywayyy, now that we got the outfit talk out of the way, onto this month’s recap! Continue reading “July 2022 Month in Review”
