Pop of Color – #thriftstylethursday

Today’s #ThriftStyleThursday is also a #ThrowBackThursday to last fall, my first semester at the U and the nice and sunny weather, and a day I spent exploring the area around campus.

I wore this light blue linen wrap dress with bright magenta tights and my favorite olive leather jacket.

This was also the last time I wore this dress. As much as I miss it, it was time to donate it.

Tights are a great way to add a pop of color to any outfit!

Make sure to check out everyone else’s #ThriftStyleThursday posts! Thank you Kristi for coming up with this week’s theme :) Next week we will be styling the Pantone color of the year – marsala!

Happy Thursday everyone! Tomorrow I leave for Chicago! I am so excited! Sam and I are headed down there right after class! So I have to pack pack pack tonight. Pack for the both of us. I am quickly trying to finish up all the homework I can possibly and impossibly have, because I want to spend as much time with my friends as I can. Sam and I haven’t had a date night for a while, so that’s going to be a whole date weekend. So I am really glad I decided to renew my Russian passport, because otherwise this trip wouldn’t be happening ;)

This week’s #ThriftStyleThursday theme is Winter White out, and for the first time this January I wish we had more snow. I guess it’s all on the East Coast today! Mother Nature is just screwing with us all here in the Midwest. I am still expecting shit to hit the fan in February.

So thank you Megan of Eclecticity for coming up with a theme for this week! Let me know what you think of my outfit, I kind of cheated and it’s not all white, but, let’s be honest, I didn’t even wear all white on my wedding day, so….

Don’t forget to check out everyones posts, all the images below are clickable and the #ThriftStyleThursday logo will take you to our Facebook page, so make sure to like that as well!


 

Bel Kazan

Classes are in full swing and all of a sudden I am busy with all my assignments and readings. But I love it. It does mean a little less time for the blog. A little less words. Though that’s what we need sometimes – less words.

Here is a dress so beautiful and unique you may think I am weird. It’s a Bel Kazan. And is more of a summer dress than anything. I really don’t care what season it is though, I just want to wear it.

I styled the dress two different ways. Do you like it more with a sweater over it or a leather jacket?

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!

I often see outfits on Pinterest or Instagram and think to myself – I really like this look, I wonder if I could pull it off!

And this is the case with this pinspired outfit. I paired my vintage wool skirt with a hand knit thrifted sweater, my Frye boots and this Duluth Trading company bag! This is my school bag and I absolutely love it, because it fits my laptop, all my notebooks and the ridiculous amount of lipsticks that I carry around with me.

Hope this post inspires you! I am spending the day in bed with my textbooks!

Get my look: Frye boots, plaid skirt, knit sweaters, leather bags.

I’ve been really into camel color lately, and by really, I mean REALLY!

And maybe it’s a little much for some, I see this look as chic and unique.

A few days ago someone at work said that I have outfits that not many can pull off and I took it as a compliment. Yes, sometimes my clothes may be odd, but they are me and I love the confidence they give me!

Do your outfits express who you are?

Get my look: plaid skirts, camel color sweaters, beige boots.

Day After Christmas

Sam and I spent Christmas day together, just the two of us. We went on a long walk along the Cedar Lake Trail and I even convinced him to take some pictures for me. Since I spent all night Tuesday baking, I thought I deserved it ;)

We are leaving for Eau Claire today, which is exciting! Here is hoping I get to go thrifting there! My friend Ann (who I did the photo shoot with) told me about a store there that’s so amazing it even sells cars. While I am not looking for a car, there are a few vintage pieces I would love to get my hands on. I have been looking for a camel coat, and any sweaters I can find.

I also got a Tess + Tricia necklace for Christmas, and if you haven’t heard of them, they are a local jewelry brand out of Excelsior, MN. I just learned that their jewelry will be available in over 80 Core Power Yoga locations, which is huge!

The sweatshirt I am wearing is H&M and it is a save version of the Rachel Zoe one I wore in this post. $14.95 vs $275, you do the math ;)

Notice how red my hands are in the photos. It was pretty cold out, even though we have no snow!

And by the way these quilted boots were only $30 from HauteLook.com. I used to order from there a lot a couple years ago, and now, that I can return to Nordstrom Rack, I think I will be shopping there more often!

Meanwhile I am enjoying my break, watching Twin Peaks, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and waiting for Friends to go on Netflix.

Palm Saturday

2014-10-20 11.44.32

Happy Weekend! Fridays are now indeed my FriYAYs since college started. And even though I enjoy school, I still like my weekends more.

I have been looking for something new and different to wear, something to stand out in! That’s why this re:named ensemble is perfect! Besides someone on Instagram has already called this flashy ;) Mission accomplished!

I especially like this outfit because, even though it is a crop top, it covers in all the right places, and my belly button isn’t showing (I’m like Taylor Swift when it comes to showing my belly button). And it was so easy to style for fall – all I had to do was add tights, cardigan or a jacket (this is actually thrifted! I am still thrifting in case anyone is wondering ;) )

Layers of Fall #ThriftStyleThursday

fallaccessories

Fall has always been about layers for many, and I am no exception. There is something about cozying up in a favorite sweater or scarf. It’s to the point of emotional attachment almost. And I don’t even want to try and explain it.

When fall becomes an accessory, you know you are doing it right!

It’s been a tough September for the Thrift Style Thursday group, but after everyone has reconsidered, we came back together, maybe not such a large group as before, but we are determined to bring you style and love every Thursday! Even if it’s not all thrifted ;)

Some of you may know that yesterday was my Birthday. And, just like that I got myself a pair of Frye boots. I can’t say I always wanted ones, and have been dying to get my hands on them, but at the right place and the right time, well, now I own a pair. And just like that, they walk me now.

Hope you all had a great day!

Love, have fun and Frye!

Chambray Romper

In my search for a perfect chambray shirt, the replacement of the Ralph Lauren one that I loved and wore out, I got sidetracked and got this chambray romper from moddeals instead. It’s going to be hot this summer, so why not? And, indeed, the hot weather makes me forget the winter terror, helps me relax and enjoy the sunshine, the green grass, and long walks with my husband. I don’t think I would be able to make it through without summer!
