Fall is finally here. It rained all day yesterday, when it didn’t rain, it drizzled, when it didn’t drizzle, the sky was gray and it was windy. Good thing I stocked up on sweaters and outerwear! You know how some animals start eating before the winter, to gain some fat? Well I am like that with clothes – warm clothes. Since I am not planning on fattying myself up, but rather staying the 117 lb that I am, I choose fashion to satisfy my need for warmth, that and my husband! He is a great heater ;)
I wanted to share some of my finds with you and how to style them. (Since I only do laundry over the weekend, it’s going to be a while until I actually post pictures of myself wearing these items, so just be patient with me :) )
We are going to start with the sweaters. Both are Macy’s brands, and one of them came with tags attached! I love finding brand new things at the Salvation Army.
1. Norwegian pattern sweater
I bet most of you thought I was talking about a sweater with reindeer on it! No, I am far from wearing Rudolph on my sweater. I was never into the whole trend of Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters on my clothes! Anyways, here are the two ways how you can style a sweater like this:
a) with skinny Jeans
I know that in this picture the sweater is pretty cut off, but you get the idea! Plus I have that exact same skirt, that I can’t wait to wear with my new sweater! By the way it’s Evan-Picone, a Macy’s brand, and it only cost me $3.99 ;)
2. Tribal print Sweater
It’s a fitted sweater by Charter Club. With tags still attached, and a little sample of gray string to mend it if necessary! This was a $3.99 purchase, but it was also a white tag, which meant it was 50% off, Boo-Yah!
How to wear something tribal:
a) With skinny jeans and a solid color scarf
b) As a mini dress
These ones are available at Bloomingdales, but the sweater that I bought can also be worn as a mini dress. Though I will have to lose another 5-7 lb before I can come out in public like that.
c) with leggings or jeggings
I am really digging this whole nerdy look, with the hair pulled into a bun like that and some geeky glasses! If you find a norwegian pattern sweater that’s long enough, you could pull this look off as well.
3. Gray maxi skirt
So here are some ideas on how to style this amazing find:
a) wear it with a bright top, because almost all colors go well with gray!
c) Layer it up with white
Hillary Duff or Ashley Olsen? You choose!
I hope you guys enjoyed my thrift finds! Let me know what you all think!
PS. The total price of everything was $11, but I paid only $7.22, thanks to the half price tags and the 25% off coupon that I got through the Choose to Reuse program!
