The famous line I would always say to my mother when she dragged me into thrift stores...."If I see anyone here I know, I'm going to die!" Was I being a BIT of a dramatic 13 year old? Probably. But my mom would always counter my statement with "If they see you here, it's because THEY ARE HERE TOO!" ....Touché mom, TOUCHÉ.
It's funny looking back on times like that because I LOVE thrifting now. I literally get a rush from going to thrift stores and seeing what good deals I can find. It's always a "win some, lose some" situation, but nonetheless it's always fun! I'm glad that at a young age, in a world where everyone is in constant competition to look the best, I have appreciated the art of thrifting. Yes, I said ART, people! I truly believe I had one of the best hauls i've had this past week. Top 5 FOR SURE. You don't have to spend a lot of money to look fabulous. I by no means have a great sense of fashion but I do like looking put together.
I found this cute swimsuit top. Although it MIGHT be a maternity top, i'm totally in love. I've wanted something a little more "conservative" for summer time and this was the perfect pick. It is a darker charcoal color and I figured with a bright colored bottom, this would look awesome!

Who doesn't love bright colored shirts?! I was drawn to this beauty for obvious reasons! I love the lace detail around the top and the shirt is beyond long! I LOVE long shirts! This material is so lightweight which is an added bonus.

My next blouse is just too adorable. Not much to it, but I loved the simplicity of it. I quickly learned, when looking for a retail price, "BLAIR" might OR MIGHT NOT BE an "old lady brand". THIS SHIRT IS STILL CUTE, OKAY?! (Hashtag don't judge me.)
Paid: $4.99 Brand: Blair
Comfortable clothes are at the top of my list. I hate being in regular clothes any longer than I have to. I landed a SUPER comfy workout type jacket. "Activewear" they call it. HA! It should be called "Lounge around the house wear".

Sweater season is fast approaching, is it not?! Well, if you live anywhere but the land of heat that I am from. Regardless, I love sweaters and couldn't resist this one!

These next two dresses were probably two of my favorite finds in the history of finds! This blue dress is just to die for! All lace, stylish, fits me?! Perfection. The "country vibe" of this really screamed at me and I just couldn't pass it up.

This dress is a little...."out there". Let's be honest, I think it's what i'm most excited about! Bright colors, crazy patterns, perfect in every way! It fit like a glove and I loved the classiness of it. And people....it has POCKETS! P-O-C-K-E-T-S. If you don't love pocket dresses, you must not love puppies. Or ice cream. Or all things wonderful! Okay kidding, but seriously. I'm in LOVE.
