100% Thrifted Outfit Challenge

About a month and half ago, I had an idea. I wanted to challenge myself to wearing an outfit which included shoes, jewelry and clothes, that was 100% totally thrifted. 
Now granted, I normally wear at least one thing everyday that's thrifted, it's just in my blood. But I began to think that it's pretty rare that everything is completely thrifted. 
but then I totally forgot.
So here we are almost 2 months later, and I still haven't blogged about it.
I think it's about time!

Oh, and for any confusion:
(especially since my computer keeps telling me I'm spelling it wrong)

The act of making a purchase of an item or article of clothing from a thrift store.

It's pretty simple. Everything, and I mean everything down to the shoes on your feet and the earrings hanging on your ear, must come from a secondhand, thrift shop. 
(ok, not literally everything. Please don't thrift your underwear... I gotta draw the line somewhere)

Here is my first outfit:
(note: I took these photos two months ago, when the weather still felt spring-y, now it's just hot!)

Jacket: old navy-via Goodwill
skirt: Ann taylor- Goodwill.
okay, do I need to keep saying that? We all know where this outfit really came from ;)
shoes: orig. Kelly and Katie
necklace, tank, and clutch: origin unknown

So how do you think my first outfit turned out?

Please feel free to join me on this challenge! I can't wait!


  1. Sounds super fun and challenging! Cute outfit!

  2. Your skirt is ever so cute! I love it! I loved how you styled it! Okay, too many exclamation marks here. But seriously you look adorable. I thrift a lot too, and my biggest challenge seems to be the shoes. I think I'm a bit of a shoeaholic, and I don't find as many thrifted pairs as I'd like.

    1. I know! I am the same way. Shoes are definitely the hardest thing to find thrifted. What's up with that?!?!

  3. I like your disclaimer about how not quite EVERYTHING was thrifted. It's good to set boundaries. :P But still, quite impressive. I'm sure I do not have an entire outfit's worth of thrifted clothing. I'd love to get shoes thrifted, but I swear no body around here gets rid of shoes until they are falling apart.

    1. Haha, I just felt that it needed to be said... so someone doesn't take it too literally! I totally agree on the shoes and when you do find a pair that's in good shape, they aren't your size! So frustrating!
