I know, I know, enough about fall already! I can’t help it, I love it! But I promise, I will not go on about the greatness of fall any longer (yeah, we both know I won’t keep that promise, but I will for this post, at least)!
Instead, let’s talk about the color orange, which, quite frankly, is not my favorite color (despite its prominence during a certain unnamed season….). I was a little concerned at this week’s Thrift Style Thursday theme because I wear many colors well, but orange just ins’t one of them. As a result, I have very little orange in my wardrobe. Luckily, I loved this striped tank top enough to thrift it in spite of its main color (oh, and the $2.50 price tag helped)!
I thought I’d take a risk by layering my fun loose stripe cardigan over the stripe tank top. I figure since the stripes are totally different sizes, it works… right? Really, I’m just in love with the sweater and wanted to show it off, along with my new favorite booties. Would you believe I thrifted those real leather, studded Franco Sarto booties for only $18.75?? I’m calling that my Steal of the Season! ;)
The details: stripe cardigan (Ross) // stripe tank top (thrifted, Salvation Army) // H&M super skinny jeans (thrifted, Goodwill) // Franco Sarto booties (thrifted, Salvation Army) // hipster owl necklace (gift)
How do you feel about the color orange? Love it, or hate it?? Either way, be sure to check out how my fellow thrifty divas styled their orange-themed ensembles over on our Thrift Style Thursday Facebook group. That’s right, we now have an official Facebook page where you can get everyone’s stylish thrifted looks each week, all in one place! We’re also working on a fun community page so anyone can join in and share their most fabulous thrifted finds!
Oh, and before I forget, I made another #OOTD video – hurray! Check it out:
As always, thanks for reading! Love & fall stripes, Kristi :)
