thrifty thursday



another thrifty thursday
is here; 

i wore this on a coffee & bookstore date
with my hubbie-
i walked in the restroom and thought
ooh, i should take a picture of my 
'thrifted outfit'!

i bought the sweater at 
the thrift store.
they had a
50% off sale on
MLK day!

i am in love with the color
of the sweater
it is almost a caramel color
and in fact i went back to the thrift store
 and found
a 'sweater-jacket' with big buttons
a few days afterwards in 
the SAME color and bought it
because i so love the color...
navy, grey, brown & black 
i plan to pair all of these colors
 with my
new caramel items! :)
boots-sears, sweater-thrifted for $3.00
scarf-nordstrom, striped t-shirt-kohls
belt-is borrowed from a pair of dress pants,
skinnies-jcpenneys

i also wore this same sweater over an ivory colored dress
black tights and my chestnut colored boots
on sunday for church-
i had seen an outfit similar
 on pinterest
and thought,
hey, i could rock that!

i hope you are having a 
wonderful thursday 

be blessed,

I like it and think it's a great color. I love the boots you're wearing too. I just thrifted a caramel skirt and sweater in this color too!

You are so darn cute - you can wear anything and look great. Does your dh realize how much money you save him? He got a deal when he got you, GF!

Enjoy your new things. It's been a while since I touched base. There's been a lot going on and so little time to touch base with all my fellow bloggers. I hope your doing well.

Well done! My daughter has the knack of putting together outfits from her trips to the Thrift store too. We both love 1/2 price days!
I was wondering how you tied your scarf? I can't quite work it out from the picture....

@Arlene. Ha I went back to look at my scarf to see what you are talking about. I guess it doesn't show very well in the photo. I do it this way ALL the time. I take the two loose ends and tie a knot so it is one big circle and then put it over my head and wrap one more time...like an infinity scarf! :)

Great outfit! I love the sweater and it's color. I am a huge thrift shopper myself. In fact, most of my wardrobe is thrift. I put all that savings together and blog about it on Wed. We also have a farm!!! :-)
