Made for each other...

I was having a bit of a must-go-thrift-shopping-NOW moment this weekend but didn't want to spend a lot of money (hello, right after Christmas time). I kept it to a few choice pieces AND I paid with a gift card the lovely ladies of Kaboodle sent me for a Christmas gift for being an A-Lister.

Top: Old Navy (this one is similar)
Tank: (underneath) No Boundries, Walmart
Vintage Skirt: Heather Gray, Thrifted, $1.20
Boots: Nine West, Thrifted, $8.99
Belt: Thrifted, $1
Glasses: SEE Eyewear

I was sold the minute I saw the print of this skirt. I love that it combines autumn tones with a hint of aqua. It's a color combination that I never would have thought would look good together, but it totally works.

When I was putting the outfit together last night, I was pulling every possible belt out of my closet to pair with it. The skirt has an elastic waist which needs to be replaced - it's old and doesn't have much of its elasticity left. After digging out about ten different belts, I unearthed the one I'm wearing. I had completely forgotten about it... and, hello, does it not look like it was made to go with this skirt!?

And these boots? One of my favorite thrift store finds. I love Nine West shoes but, let's face it, I can't readily afford new leather boots as much as I would like to. Finding them at the thrift store in decent condition for $8.99? That I can deal with! I've had these for so long I can't even remember when I bought them.

Can't wait to show you the other pieces I bought! Have you bought anything good at a secondhand store recently?

  4. That skirt is a heck of a find! I love anything with aqua in it, especially unusual color combos like this one. And that belt matching is AMAZING.

    Also, your waist looks so tiny! Cute. :)
