A Scarf for Every Season | Thrift Style Thursday

November 6, 2014

Hello, friends, and Happy Thursday!  I am very excited that it is fall; unfortunately, the weather is back to being hot and dry again around here (so hot that I will be going swimming later today, in November, yeesh).  Luckily, whatever the weather, scarves are trendy year round, which means I can rock this lightweight chambray stripe scarf in any weather!


I am very stoked about this scarf for several reasons: 1. it is light and soft and comfy, 2. it has the most adorable chambray-and-white stripe pattern AND hot pink pom pom trim, and 3. I saw it at Target and wanted it desperately, but could’t justify buying it, until I later found it at the thrift store for ONLY $4!!!!!!  Score!


I am also incredibly pleased to announce that I got this entire outfit at various thrift stores (except the boots and jewelry) for under $20, woot woot!  The boots were also a super great deal from DSW, actually, which I got in the clearance section with an extra discount for, I think, something ridiculous like $12 (I can’t remember exactly, but it was a GREAT deal)!!  :)


The details: white hi-lo hem top (Salvation Army) // H&M super skinny jeans (Goodwill) // brown leather combat boots (DSW) // chambray stripe scarf (Goodwill) // rose gold watch (Target) // blush pink stud earrings (H&M)


Don’t forget to see how my fellow Thrift Style Thursday gal pals styled their favorite scarves for fall by checking out their links below:

As always, thanks for reading!  Love & combat boots, Kristi :)

    That is a great scarf!! I love it – I love the Target scarves, but often find they are kind of spendy (being that it’s Target after all) so finding one cheaper at the thrift store is awesome. Sorry to hear it’s so hot there though! We’re suffering 40’s and wind, although the sun is out today!

    Score on the scarf! It is perfect (thanks to the neon pink pom pom trim!!!) and at $4 you were one lucky thrifter :) Love your styling…and wish it was a little warmer here. Maybe not swimming weather, but at least not winter coat weather ;)

    The scarf is so cute! It pairs beautifully with your simple outfit. I can’t believe you scored those boots for so cheap! I love the clearance section at DSW for that reason. It’s a dangerous place for me though, haha. :)

      Thank you!! I know what you mean, any shoe section is dangerous, but especially DSW’s clearance section! I think I scored so great with this boots because I bought them during summer, too :)
