This week’s Thrift Style Thursday theme is “Color Pop,” and the host is… me!  While I have absolutely been enjoying challenging myself each week with all of the fun themes, I have to admit that it felt good this week to throw on some bright colors in the midst of winter!

For this theme, I challenged everyone to share a pop of color.  A little or a lot, it was up to them to bring some color to the dregs of winter.  Personally, I thrifted this gorgeous red dress several weeks ago and I have been dying to wear it!  I almost saved it for warmer weather, but it’s been really mild here lately (thank you, Santa Ana winds, for the 80+ degree weather in February!).

This simple shift dress is originally from Old Navy, and I gotta say, I have been loving Old Navy’s more bohemian pieces lately.  I paired the dress with a long cardigan sweater (originally Target, also thrifted), a bright teal skinny belt – for even more color – and my favorite brown motorcycle boots.  I love the loose shape of the dress, too, and I can’t wait to wear it with nothing but a pair of sandals this summer.

The details: red dress (Old Navy, thrifted) // gray long cardigan (Target, thrifted) // motorcycle boots (Target, old) // skinny teal belt (Old Navy) // locket necklace (gift) // gold cuff bracelet (gift) // red stud earrings (Forever 21) // emerald bucket bag (Old Navy)

I cannot wait to see what pops of color everyone came up with for this week’s theme!  Be sure to check out all the links below to see how they brought color to the season:


I have to say, there is just something about wearing a pretty dress in a bright color that makes me so happy!

Do you love flaunting bright colors in winter?  Or are you more likely to bundle up and grudgingly wait for spring??


As always, thanks for reading!

I have definitely been trying to wear more colors this winter, I find it really brightens my mood, especially on gray, cold days!

      Thank you so much!! I have never really worn this kind of high neckline before because I was always afraid it would make my broad shoulders look even broader, but, surprisingly, I absolutely love it!! :)

    The red and teal combo is just perfect! I’m jealous that you can pull off a bright, primary red like that. You look fabulous! Also, I would kill for those boots.

      Thanks, Carissa!! This dress might be my new favorite! And these boots are (obviously) well-worn for a reason – I love them! Thanks! :)

    Ow ow, lady! Love this look and I’m SO envious of your weather! I’m definitely a begrudginly warm dresser until spring pops up (though in fairness its rought around these parts when you have 0 degree days)

      Thank you!! I totally respect that, I cannot even imagine having to get dressed and leave the house in such freezing weather! No way, I am a California girl through and through! ;)

    Such a cute dress! And amazing choice to add the pop of color in the belt on top of the color pop dress ;) Wish I could pull off a pixie the way you do, it is seriously so perfect on you. Great look this week :)

      Thank you, thank you, and thank you!!! I seriously love this dress and the skinny belt is one of my faves! I’ve had short hair for so many years now, I have a hard time imagining going back, but the pixie is easily my fave! It’s just so easy! But I do occasionally miss ponytails and braids… ;)
