#ThriftStyleThursday A Jean Jacket // June 16 + Link Up

thrift style thursday denim jacket

Friendship is a wonderful thing. There are so many great humans that I’ve been able to meet through social media. Katelyn is one of them. She is a friend from Milwaukee I met through Instagram. Katelyn writes a blog called The Duck and The Owl with her roommate Sarah, as well as finds time to be an editor and creative assistant at The Crybaby Club. All that on top of being a rock star English teacher!

We got to spend an amazing afternoon in Minneapolis yesterday! Walked all over downtown, Loring Park, hung out with my family and friends. We ended the day with a happy hour on one of the rooftops.

Thrift Style Thursday linkups are a way to make new friends too. I’ve never really met any of you in person, but every week I get to know you better. Social media works in mysterious ways. I was reading the New York Times over the weekend, the wedding announcement section, and about half of the couples met online (that included but wasn’t limited to Tinder, Ok Cupid, etc.). If someone can meet a significant other online, it only makes sense we can use it to find new friends. Lately, I’ve been meeting more and more local bloggers through Instagram, going out for coffee or drinks, sharing my blogging experience, etc. It’s so easy to network these days, don’t miss your chance!

I wore this thrifted Trouve knitted dress, paired with my favorite thrifted lucky jacket, and my vintage Coach cross body bag. I think a good denim jacket is a must have in everyone’s closet, and a neutral color dress is a perfect layering piece for any season!

Make sure to join the linkup, share your looks and posts, and help us spread the word if you have a minute!
