There are so many reasons why thrift shopping is the best. It’s super affordable, you can find lots of unique items that you otherwise wouldn’t, there are always tons of go-to basic pieces as well, and it’s more environmentally responsible by re-using perfectly fine items and saving on production and shipping resources.
I’m trying to “Marie Kondo” my wardrobe and have a lot of versatile comfortable pieces that I can mix around with fewer unique statement pieces. It’s been a process and I’m not fully done, but it’s making me appreciate what I have more and reduce my wardrobe to a more manageable size! We happen to have an amazing Goodwill here in Colorado Springs and I check back at the start of each season to search for some goodies. Fall is on the way, so here’s what I’m looking forward to wearing…all found at Goodwill.
Fall in Colorado still means the days can be upwards of 80 degrees, so I still like to have some warmer weather gear. Plus I’ve been loving anything rust/sienna/ochre colored.
I was able to find some perfectly-fitting white Converse which I think look great with these distressed black jeans, a graphic tee, and a taupe moto jacket as a more casual look.
Then swap that moto jacket out for a cream cardigan and you have such a comfy outfit.
Old Navy open front beige cardigan $5
Can you even wear clothes in the fall if it isn’t flannel?! What about a flannel dress that you can throw black leggings under? Perfect.
Then, we have the perfect pair of jeans. These are J.Crew and in a size much smaller than what I am but they were calling my name so I tried them on and am so happy I did. Perfect color and style to go with anything. Like this brand new (with tags on! originally $50) Loft black sweater shirt or a simple waffle long sleeve
Aaaand last but not least I found this coooolio tribal patterned wrap that just screamed cozy fall blanket and can be dressed up or down.
I truly know approximately only 17% percent about fashion, but I do know this: all these clothes are comfortable, fit well, are of good quality, are affordable, and give second life to a piece of clothing. I don’t thrift for absolutely everything, but it’s so nice to be able to re-use items rather than buy new ones all the time.
What’s been your best Goodwill SCORE so far!?
