Black Beanie, Black Jeans, Black Boots, Gray Shirt | Thrift Style Thursday

November 13, 2014

Hello, friends, Happy Thursday!  Phew, we are past hump day and coasting “downhill” to the weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited, it’s been a crazy week (but more on that later).  Today’s Thrift Style Thursday theme is “Fall Accessories: Hats” and it just so happens to be the perfect hat weather in Southern California right now!  (Finally!)


I will admit that I don’t own a ton of hats, but I do love cozy, knit hats, especially in cold weather.  Since I don’t have long hair, my ears are always cold, AND my “bad hair day” hairstyles are limited, so a slouchy beanie is the prefect solution!


I found this basic black beanie at a local Salvation Army for only $2.70!  Most Salvation Army stores have their branded “Salvation Army” shopping totes, and if you use one when you shop, you get 10% off your purchase – awesome!  While I love adding lots of color to my wardrobe, sometimes it’s good to get back to basics, like with this beanie, t-shirt and black moto boots (which I also picked up at Salvation Army this summer).


The details: gray crew t-shirt, black slouchy beanie, black studded Franco Sarto boots (Salvation Army) // black skinny jeans (Old Navy)


I have been especially inspired by basics lately, keeping it simple and comfortable while the weather figures itself out.  Are you a fan of basics, or do you prefer to mix it up?  What’s your “default” style??

Let’s see how my fellow Thrift Style Thursday-er’s styled their fall hats!

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

    I love this beanie! I haven’t found a slouchy beanie that I like. Most of my hats are more fitted. This is such a nice basic look, you just can’t go wrong with it!!

      Thank you!! This is my first slouchy beanie, too, and I love it! I have a hard time finding hats I like with my short hair – they either make me look like a teenage boy or a total hipster – but this one just fit! :)

    SO MUCH SASS in this post, and I absolutely love it. Your facial expression in the first picture especially is so fierce. Such a simple yet stunning look, and the boots really kick it up a notch. The hat could go with anything!! Love this!

      Ahhh thank you, Justine!!! I was actually kinda surprised by how much I LOVED this outfit, but I just felt totally cool (and I think it shows haha)! This was definitely a style I’ve seen a bunch on Pinterest and finally I decided to try it myself, and I’m hooked, I love it all!! :)
