Casual Thrifting Day

a

- thrifted Gap sweater
- UO jeans
- 80s woven leather flats
- vintage Coach purse

Rather than the usual gussied up outfit post, I thought I'd do a casual going-thrifting sort of outfit. I'm not a big jeans-wearer but I do love how high waisted these are. The sweater is one I thrifted but is originally from the Gap. I also have it in black and white. They're the best soft wool!

I'm still trying to figure out the best way to deal with the hair-growing-out situation. My best defense these days is the messy side ponytail. I got the idea from this hair tutorial. I'm also trying out the one with three buns. I haven't quite gotten that one down yet. :)

Today I'm taking a little road trip to visit some thrift and vintage stores that I don't usually get to during the week. I've got my fingers crossed that I come home with lots of goodies for the Etsy shop. Speaking of the Etsy shop, I'll be adding 35 more spring pieces this week. Yay!

So odd, I 'nearly' thrifted the exact same sweater here in England a few months ago but decided it was too small. I got a profound sense of de ja vu when I saw this post!! x

I think this is a perfectly lovely outfit for a day of thrifting. I've yet to find a pair of high-waisted jeans that I really like, but yours look great! (And side ponytails and braids are my go-to hairstyles for in-between hair as well.)

How long are you wanting to grow your hair out? I like the side ponytail with the ribbon, for the record. I have pretty long hair, and I hardly do anything with it...

Those flats are so cute! Vintage heels are something I find regularly, but I wish I found more boots and flats in good condition.

Love this bright top with your dark trousers! And your hair is lovely like that- made me a bit wistful about chopping mine off!

This outfit reminds me of something people would wear in the mid sixties when they were going for a bike ride or hanging out. It's very cute. I like it.
