Thrifted & Gifted

Welcome back friends!  I just want to thank all of you loyal readers that keep coming back to my blog.  Whether listening to my ramblings or just to gain inspiration for an outfit, I am deeply humbled that you find me interesting...lol.  This outfit is one I've been wanting to try for a while now and have just got around to blogging it.




I love the idea of wearing a button down with jeans and a cute oxford. Aren't these oxfords the cutest? I'm loving the ribbon shoe lace. I was sort of aiming for the preppy yet casual look here and I was thrilled with the end result. I apologize for the wrinkles in the shirt. I shot these after work this day and unfortunately it got all wrinkled in the arms...*insert stale face*. The paisley print is another that I'm drawn to. The whimisical pattern is aesthetically pleasing to my eye and well, I had to buy it! Lol, at six bucks yep, I made it mine.

  2. I absolutely adore your outfit! And I love that everything you're wearing is affordable and adorable! So many bloggers post designer outfits that no one can afford so the inspiration gets lost, but this is so inspiring to me for future outfits! LOVE IT!

    1. Awww, thanks Kimberly! This blog is totally my aim to inspire those who are just like me. I work as a nurse, I'm a mom of 4 and I have REAL expenses...lol. While I love Givenchy, Valentino, and Coco Chanel, I am NOT rich. I love posting affordable options to inspire others to find their inner fashionista. Thanks for stopping by :)
