Hello, my friends! Happy Wednesday! This month is second-hand September! For those who don’t know, it’s a month dedicated to buying only secondhand clothing. Bobby and I took a trip to Goodwill the other day, and did some browsing. I tried on a total of three items, and unfortunately, only one of the items worked out, but boy, is it a cute one!
A funny little story: I tried on a pair of jeans that were originally from Old Navy, and they were my size so I was SUPER excited, because they were SO cute. And then when I went to try them on, I couldn’t even get them past my calves, and I was super confused. I looked on the inside of the pants and they said “husky” on the tag, and they had the elastic on the inside to adjust the size, so I’m like 99% sure they were little boy pants… So, needless to say, they were not a win.
I also tried on a really cute striped dress, but it just didn’t fit me right, so I put it back so that someone else could find the striped dress of their dreams!
The dress I ended up getting… oh my gosh, SO cute. It still had tags on it, although I’ve never heard of the brand before.
I wanted to make a post using an item that I bought second-hand as the base of my outfit, and show all the ways that you could style it. While the items I pair with it may or may not be second-hand, what I want to show is that if we buy pieces that are versatile, we’re able to create so many different variations of an outfit, possibly with items we already own!
This pair of white cowgirl boots would be great paired with a denim jacket for a trip to the pumpkin patch. Because as much as I wish the weather was cooling down… it just isn’t so yet! I would also probably curl my hair for this look!
These white sandals, like I wore in the picture above, would be great paired with a tan sun hat for a nice day exploring a cute downtown. I think I would probably do my hair in two fishtail braids because I LOVE that paired with a cute hat.
And the black heels! That are VERY cute but VERY uncomfortable, would be perfect for date night. I’d probably straighten my hair and wear a bold earring!
There are so many ways we can switch up our outfits! Shoes, jewelry, purses, the way we style our hair, hats, and even our makeup, can totally change our outfit!
I only chose to add a couple of ideas, because there really are countless ways to make an outfit feel new, but I love the idea of making each and every time you wear a piece, for it to be completely unique. Fashion is all about having fun, and this is one of my favorite parts of putting together outfits!
Thank you so much for reading!
