A Very Thrifty Christmas

What I Wore

Today I wore touches of red and green which is very on theme right now. I have been surprisingly into the holiday spirit this year. Usually by this time of December I am drowning in holiday shopping stress but fortunately this year has been a little different.

I am excited to spend time with my friends and family as well as hopeful for what the new year may bring and focused on living in the moment. Right now I’m just happy to be wearing some of my favorite cozy sweaters and holiday themed outfits.

Fun fact: this outfit is almost entirely thrifted which is not unusual for me. I love thrifting because, frankly, I just love old things. I also love finding something of great quality at a great price. I find most of my thrifted pieces either on second hand apps like Depop and Poshmark or at Goodwill if I feel like bargain hunting in person. This thick, cozy sweater, plaid dress and suede boots all happen to be from my local Goodwill.

My socks are from Poshmark but don’t worry they were new in package when I received them. My belt is one of those fun items that was probably one of my other family members at some point but has migrated into my closet at some point over the years.

My ring is one of my faves because it used to be a spoon before becoming a ring and meeting me! Lastly my scarf is the only non- secondhand item I am wearing and it is from Forever 21 but nobody’s perfect.

I love that I accidentally wore an all secondhand outfit because It makes me feel like my clothes are more interesting. Also my clothing gets to live a second life with me rather than ending up in a landfill. Do you guys enjoy thrifting most of your clothing or buying it brand new? Let me know down below!
