Marsala Spice | Thrift Style Thursday

February 19, 2015

Can you guess today’s Thrift Style Thursday theme??  Yup, it’s Pantone’s Color of the Year – Marsala! – chosen by Miche of Buttons and Birdcages!

At first, I will freely admit that I was more than a little disappointed in this year’s Color of the Year, but it has grown on me.  I’ve gone for a slightly more vibrant version with this skirt, but as soon as I saw this beauty on the rack, I knew it was coming home with me!  I found it while thrift shopping for my Thrift Swap partner (more on that later, I promise!), and it was only $3!

I just love the pattern on this thrifted skirt and the beautiful color scheme.  I decided to play up the purple by adding my purple – and marsala – pattern jacket to the mix.  Add in the polka dot tights, and it’s a lot of pattern, so I chose a simple white t-shirt for the top.  I also kept the accessories simple with two layered necklaces, stud earrings, and neutral booties.

The teeny gold necklace is a Valentine’s Day gift from Derek.  It’s a stamped circle that says “D ♥ K” and it’s just about the cutest thing ever!  I’d love to give Derek all the credit, but I may have told him exactly what I wanted haha!  Hey, a girl who asks for what she wants, gets it!  Am I right??  ;)

Check it out!

I am really glad I found this skirt just in time for this week’s theme.  I have a feeling I will be wearing this one all summer long!  When summer finally arrives, that is…  I do think this outfit makes a nice transitional look from winter to spring, though.  The layers are light, but warm enough for the lingering chill.  While the colors work equally well for both seasons.

    I love how well this outfit flows together. The skirt is enough of a pop without taking away from the rest of the outfit. I love your take on the themes it’s always very unique and I also enjoy the other bloggers that partake in this as well. Happy Thursday!

    I would never have thought to pair such a casual jacket and boots with this cute little feminine skirt, but it looks fantastic all together! And $3? What an awesome find!

      Thanks, Carissa! I was definitely going for contrast. I was a little worried it wouldn’t work out, but I think it all goes somehow haha! :)

    This is such a great look- it’s hard to pick a favorite part, but I think it’s the unexpected tights that I love the most!!
