It feels like forever since my last outfit post, so I'm excited that this one has a few special elements, including two fantastic thrift finds: the scarf and the cardigan. If you ask me, both are equally awesome. And that's not just because they were only $1 each. Well, to be honest, that is definitely part of their awesomeness.
What is it about getting a steal that feels so damn good? I seriously get such a great high when I walk out of a thrift shop with 10 items for $10 or even $20. It's just the best. The cardigan is seriously perfect for my wardrobe. I own at least a dozen cardigans in all different colours, but none in sea foam. (Is that what you'd call that!??) I adore it and think it will be perfect for the spring and summer. The scarf on the other hand will be brilliant all year around and is a fantastic addition to my already over-sized scarf collection. I know I've promised to show it to all of you and I will get to it one day. It's just a matter of tidying it up first. It's kind of out of control at the moment.
As far as the rest of the outfit goes, I've had the top since my second year of undergrad, which means it's been in my closet for about six years now. (Holy. I hadn't thought of that until just now!) It's just too cute to get rid of and I find that one summer I'll forget about it and then the next I'll find it and be excited all over again. The little flowers on it are just so dainty and sweet. See, I'm swooning over it all over again.
The jeans are my new beloved skinny jeans from Forever 21. I wrote an entire post about my love for them, so if you feel need to learn more about how dear they are to me, check that out.
