A ‘Night Out’ Look with The Thrifty Six

It’s time for another Thrifty Six collaboration, and this month’s theme, chosen by Nancy, is a little out of the ordinary… “We’re not angry birds!” While I was initially taken aback by this fun and unique theme, I quickly thought of this teal faux fur jacket that I thrifted while in Scotland. Sure, it’s not feathers, but faux fur was the next closest thing in my closet. And the pretty color reminded me of the beautiful plumage of a peacock! When I told my boyfriend about the theme, though, he reminded me that we are *not* angry birds… so then really, based off the once-popular game, that means I should’ve dressed up as a green pig, ha!  Continue reading “A ‘Night Out’ Look with The Thrifty Six”

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”

It was my turn to choose the theme for this month’s Thrifty Six collaboration, and I landed on jumpsuits! I chose the theme several weeks ago (I assume with a specific outfit in mind), but by the time I actually went to photograph a look last week, I had no idea what to wear… Funny, considering it was my choice. I have a handful of secondhand onesies now, from my favorite floral romper to this teal velour jumpsuit, but I ultimately landed on this shapeless scarlet number (although I can’t wait to style the velour jumpsuit with a black leather jacket come fall!).  Continue reading “The Thrifty Six Style Jumpsuits”
