Thrift Style Thursday Link Up // June 30 // Schoola Collaboration

Thrift Style Thursday Schoola

Thrift Style Thursday Schoola

Can you believe it’s June 30th’s already? I am so happy that Thrift Style Thursday link up has been going strong for almost a month! I love checking out everyone’s posts, so keep them coming. I wanted to share my recent collaboration with Schoola today. Schoola is a secondhand online shop that offers clothing for women, men and children. It benefits schools in the US and the Malala Fund internationally. In fact, 40% of all the proceeds go to benefit children’s education. They have a wide variety of brands, sizes and prices! Plus you can donate to Schoola for free by requesting a bag, to learn more, click here.

Since Schoola was kind to provide me with a few pieces, I can’t wait to be sharing them with you over the next few weeks!

I wore this Land’s End shirt dress a couple days ago when we went to Mickey’s Diner in downtown Saint Paul. Sam wanted to have dinner there before his trip to Germany. So if you know where Mickey’s is, you’ve probably seen this store front nearby. My obsession with everything New York City will never stop, besides there was a No Nonsense sign in the window, so I had to take a photo there!

And now for the link up!

Blue – the most human color + #ThriftStyleThursday

Blue is one of my favorite colors, always have been, especially the beautiful lapis, like the sweater that you see in the photos. I almost wore blue shoes today too, but went with my gut and these Frye boots instead. You know how some people wear flip flops year round? I wear my Frye boots! I only have two pairs so far, but I am sure I will be expanding my collection soon.

Yesterday I shared my love for the Avett Brothers, today I can’t help but mention one other favorite artist of mine – Regina Spektor. Her song Blue Lips is where I stole the title for todays post from. But my new favorite song of hers is I cut Off My Hair! You have to listen to the lyrics, they are hilarious. I used to live in Manhattan, and she sings about it, so it brings back the memories, the good times and makes me want to go back!

Some of my other favorite things that start with B are bears, beets and Battlestar Galactica (I am 100% serious!)

This post for #AtoZChallenge ties in so nicely with our #ThriftStyleThursday theme. Today’s post is supposed to be inspired by nature. And once again, the sky has always been one of my main sources of inspiration. It’s not the limit, but it’s a great way to forget about your everyday life and kind of dissolve in it. That’s why I really cherish my mornings now when I let out Mason, and I sit on the back deck, drink my coffee or tea, and start the new day!


Red, White and Blue

With Independence day quickly approaching, I picked out some of my favorite red, white and blue items for you. Something that I would wear myself. So enjoy and if you need any last minute shopping done, here is your guide.
