Down East & Thrifting Part 1

DSCN0561

It’s a lovely day here in North Dakota. The sky is blue, the sun is bright, and …it’s exactly 1 degree Fahrenheit! It was so gorgeous out that I decided to brave the cold for this photo shoot. πŸ™‚ I realized that I hadn’t shown off the clothes that I got from my Down East Haul, and I figured I should remedy that! Plus, I can show off some of my thrift store finds while I’m at it. πŸ™‚

I adore this J. Crew sweater! I just love the look and feel of it! It is 100% merino wool, super warm, and super soft. I got it for free! Seeds of Hope, one of Bismarck’s thrift stores, has a room that is $1 a bag Tuesday -Thursday, and free on Fridays. I had seen it the day before and figured it would be gone before I came back. But there it was, hanging just for me!

My Outfit Deconstructed:

  • Brown and Black Merino Wool Cardigan: $0, Thrifted (J.Crew)
  • Brown 3/4 Sleeve Layering Tee: $3, New (Down East haul)
  • Black Pinstripe Pants: Part of $1 Sale, Thrifted (Maurices)
  • Black Pumps: $3, Thrifted (Comfort Plus)

This is a fun little number. You can’t tell, but the pants are high waist in a 1950’s cut that look really cute and retro. I’ll have to show them off in a different post. πŸ™‚ I really like the orange and navy. I think it’s striking without being over the top.

My Outfit Deconstructed:

  • Orange Layering Tee: $3, New (Down East haul)
  • Navy Short Sleeve Blouse: Part of $1 Bag, Thrifted (Maurices)
  • Navy Slacks: Part of $1 Bag, Thrifted (Marianne Fashion)
  • Leopard Print Flats: $9, New (Payless Shoes)
  • Gold, Mint and Orange Floral Necklace: Gift (from my awesome Mom-in-law!)

I really love J.Crew. I am so stoked to have a thrift store nearby that sells this brand! I think the olive and green flats is a fun, wear to work combination. Granted, we have a strictly blue shirt policy at my work, but that’s okay. πŸ™‚ I’ll wear on the weekend when I want to look nice.

My Outfit Deconstructed:

  • Gray Merino Wool Cardigan: $5, Thrifted (J.Crew)
  • Olive Short Sleeve Layering Tee: $3, New (Down East haul)
  • Gray Slacks: $2, Thrifted (Tracy Evans Limited)
  • Green Flats -$3, Thrifted (Nine West)
  • Black Clay Rose Necklace, $5, New (Walmart)

P.S. If you ever decide to come to North Dakota during the winter, please don’t walk out of the house like this! You will freeze your buns off!!! Bring a warm coat and scarf!
