What I Wore Wednesday {Thrift Store Edition}

Ok, it's that day of the week where I embarrass myself and show pictures of my Goodwill clothes.


I cringe when I see pictures of myself, and you probably do the same thing. But what I'm hoping to accomplish with these posts is inspire you to try doing the thrift store thing. You'll be amazed at what you find if you're patient (keyword). But if thrifting isn't your thing, that's totally fine, too!

So, here goes.

Cardi: Target
Tank: Target
Skirt: DownEast Basics
Scarf: Goodwill
Boots: Plato's Closet consignment
Flower pin: made by me

White tank: Ross
Purple cardi: Plato's Closet consignment (Anthropologie)
Skinnies: Kmart
Shoes: Christmas Tree Shoppes ($6 - for reals)

Oh, and I tried a new technique for curling my hair and actually really like it. It's called "no heat curls" and you can see a tutorial here. All it takes is a headband - no curling iron or curlers needed.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.


  1. Love your skirt and the shoes from Christmas Tree Shop are adorable. Great boots too~ You look lovely in your outfits. I always feel terribly awkward when I see pictures of myself too, but I think it's less weird when someone else looks at it. WIWW is inspiring. Feel good about what you're doing. ;-)

  2. Found you from The Pleated Poppy. You look great and I love your skirt!!! Thrifting is fun! I need to look for some summer stuff!

  3. your hair looks great and i love your thrifty finds. plus, you're a fellow PA girl :)
    have a sunny day!


  4. You don't have to cringe when you see pictures of yourself...You're darling!:) Anyway, I notice your cute new fluffy pink "A" favicon (is that the right term for it?). Anyway, just wanted to say that I love your DIY blog design. It inspires me. I wish we lived closer and you could give me some tips...;)

  5. That skirt is soooo great! I have a denim wrap around skirt, also thrifted, but I like yours more! Just found you through the pleated poppy and can't wait to read more about you! :D

  7. Actually I HATE photos of myself. I cringe and critic myself horribly with pictures. So it still surprises me that I will share 'me' in WIWW. I love love love; did I say love? your denim skirt! It looks amazing on you. Such a cute pulled together outfit.

  8. Love that scarf! It's been too long since I visited my fave vintage shop!

  9. don't Cringe, you look good! Thrifting can be fun and I would love it if you linked this up to my fashion link party.


  10. I LOVE the first outfit! The mixing of stripes is fab!! In my last WIWW post I had an entire outfit that was thrifted - including new shoes! Check it out!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments! ~Aimee
