an easy, vintage dress

I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

This week’s outfit is simple and sweet! The dress was a thrift store find in Kansas. I wore the dress here and the sweater here.

The dress is easy.

The sweater is happy.

The navy booties are comfortable.

All day I felt feminine. And I like that!

This vintage leather clutch is an estate sale find. Perfect for grabbing when I don’t want to carry my big bag.

First I was photo-bombed by this love bug.

And then David wanted in on the action too. Love my boys.

Layer on a few bracelets for fun. The cuff was on pre-sale last week and will be back in 2014. The green bracelet is from Now Yours. They have some very affordable, costume jewelry.

Outfit details: Dress, thrifted. Sweater, Ambiance, local boutique. Navy booties, Aersoles via TJ Maxx. Cuff, my shop. Pale green bracelet, Now Yours. Green Clutch, Estate Sale.

When I walk into a thrift store my first stop is dresses. Tell me, friends…when you walk into a thrift store, where do you begin the hunt? Housewares, dresses, bags?! I want to know!


  1. Dresses, dresses, dresses that’s where I go too:) love those dresses. That’s a beautiful dress looks beautiful paired with that cardigan:)

  2. My husband and I are regulars at Goodwill and Salvation Army! My first stop is jeans-I have a thing for them. I work from home in rural Montana, so they are my every day wear. I also collect cashmere sweaters- I get plenty of wear out if them in this climate! I am also collecting mismatched crystal wine goblets. Except that they aren’t so mismatcfed because in four different trips to both stores my husband has found four that match!

  3. Reading this gave me withdrawls from thrift shopping haha, that dress is AWESOME! this is seriously why i never buy anything full price. and i love how you styled it, it looks very anthropologie-y!

    PS I found you through the Pleated Poppy linkup!
