Beauties,

Every now and then I find gems at the thrift store.  I was recently in one of my favorite local thrift stores, Mega Thrift, when I came across this fabulous tuxedo blazer for only $5.  When I saw it, I couldn't believe it.  It was in new condition and gave me all of the college marching band vibes, but I knew it had so many possibilities.  It's crazy because literally a few weeks after purchasing it, I saw similar versions in some of the latest fashion looks online.  This is definitely one of my favorite thrift store finds of 2018!


Beauties,

I love a good hat.  It's funny because I didn't wear hats for the longest due to my super thick hair and slightly big head, but one of the joys of shorter hair is that I can finally wear the hats I have always dreamed of!  At one point, I was super obsessed with all hats, but I scaled back over the last few years.  It wasn't until I ran across the hat I'm wearing today that I had to indulge yet again.  Baker boy and newsboy hats are very popular this season and I love the fact that this one not only looks more expensive than it actually is (...only $10), but it looks so cute on.  I put the question out to Instagram of, "What would you wear with this hat?"  I got so many great responses!


Beauties,

As you all know, fall is my favorite season and it is finally, finally starting to feel like fall in North Carolina.  This year, I am so excited because many of this fall's fashion trends are not only gorgeous, but easy to find at your local thrift store.  Some of this season's trends, like plaid, animal print and suits, are so easy to find in more affordable places because they are wardrobe staples.  You could take these prints and pieces and wear them for many fall seasons to come so it is super easy to make a list of the trends you love and carry them with you to your local thrift or consignment stores.


Beauties,

When it comes to my wardrobe, I believe in purchasing classic pieces that can be worn from year to year, season to season.  I absolutely love dressing up my wardrobe with fun accessories, but if you told me last year that I would be on a major hunt for a fanny pack to add to my closet, I wouldn't believe you.  The resurgence of fanny packs amused me when they first hit the scene because I could not believe they were back!  I was never really into them when I was growing up so I wasn't quick to jump on board...at first.  It wasn't until I saw several designer fanny packs that made me give them a second look.


Beauties,

It is hard to believe that today is the first day of October.  This year has been flying by, but I can't help but be excited because we have officially entered my favorite season.  Fall has been my favorite season for as long as I can remember.  From the cool weather to to great fashion, it is the best.  This year I was able to attend New York Fashion Week for the first time and it was a whirlwind weekend, but I was so inspired by all of the amazing fall fashion.  There were several fashion themes I saw all over the city, but the main must for this fall is definitely plaid.  I will certainly be adding more plaid pieces to my wardrobe this season, but the first piece I've added are these plaid pants.
