Thrift Style Thursday – Old Man Sweater

November 14, 2013

Hello, friends!  I could not be more excited about today’s post because it is my first time participating in the Thrift Style Thursday blogger link up!!!  Hooray!  Today’s theme is menswear, so I decided to share one of my most favorite thrifted items, what I like to call my “old man” sweater.


It might not be the most stylish item ever thrifted, BUT it is super comfortable and warm and cozy and just super cool (at least, in my opinion)!  It’s pretty much huge and makes me feel like a kid trying on grandpa’s sweater, and it makes me happy.  :)


Told ya this sweater makes me happy!  Well, this sweater and this hat AND these black skinny jeans, which I swear automatically make any outfit look instantly cooler and more chic!  Plus, I think the hat really adds to the “menswear” theme.


I am wearing a gray wool oversized sweater (thrifted) over a basic dark green long sleeve shirt (H&M) with a pair of black skinny jeans (Old Navy).  I paired this look with taupe ankle booties (Mossimo, gifted) and accessorized with a black bowler hat (Target) and matte gold heart earrings (American Eagle).


Okay, so before I forget, I would like to link up to the other bloggers participating in this week’s Thrift Style Thursday – check ’em out, these girls are fabulous!!

      Haha thank you! It is so comfy – it’s my favorite sweater to throw on when it’s chilly outside and I just want to stay under the covers but I have to go out! ;)

      Thank you, thank you! I almost forgot the hat, too, but luckily I remembered it – I think the extra pop of red with the feathers really adds something :)
