Hello, friends!! If you have been reading my blog at all, then you might know how much I loooooove plaid! There is evidence here, here, here AND here. I also have a vintage plaid coat, a handmade plaid skirt, and I even used to have a pair of plaid boots (sadly, it was time to donate these). Oh, and probably my best thrift score ever is a J. Crew plaid shirtdress that I got for only $3!
As you can imagine, I have a whole section of my closet dedicated to plaid, so this week’s Thrift Style Thursday theme was more about choosing an outfit and getting creative with my remixing than anything else. Let’s see what I came up with:
I grabbed one of my favorite thrifted tops (which I picked up on a trip to Boulder, CO, last year) and paired it with a favorite summer dress, tying it in a knot thanks to the great fashion advice of one of my favorite bloggers, RubyAngel711, and her “Love Me KNOT: Ode to My Favorite Knotted Shirt Trend.”
As you can see, I’ve gotten plenty of wear out of both this dress and top – they’re two of my favorites – so I have to admit that I thought it was pretty genius pairing them together; it completely changes up the look of both the top and the dress! ;)
I love the colors of this shirt and the beautiful texture on this white dress. I decided to further play up the color and texture by adding my bright coral eyelet tennis shoes and colored wood bead bracelets. The look is actually pretty simple, but I think the knotted shirt adds some unexpected fun!
The details: vintage plaid shirt (thrifted) // white lace detail dress (H&M) // tennis shoes (Payless) // white leather wrap bracelet (gift) // wood bead bracelets (old) // turquoise stud earrings (gift)
