thrifty

Some snippets of recent thrifted finds. As you can see I was geared in the direction of neutrals, pastels, and gingham patterns. I was also really surprised to find, not one, but three pairs of pants that actually fit me quite well. I initially thought the light blue ones were a bit grandma-ish, but after trying them on I decided that I quite like looking like a grandma. I had originally planned on turning them into scallop edged shorts (inspired by this DIY from The Velvet Bow), but after trying them on I’ll definitely be keeping them as pants. I guess I’ll have to find another pair of pants/shorts to get crafty on!

    I like those grandmas that wear one single colour in a sort of linen pants suit, with long pants and matching button-up ss shirt open over a blouse.
    When I'm old, that's what I'm doing.

    lovely finds, I really like the colors. You are really lucky to find thrifted wear that fits you, whenever I went to go thrifting nothing ever fitted me so I gave up.

    I can't wait to see these pants on you! PS. I'm in love with the aesthetic of your layout. Using your template and Phosphene's as inspiration for my new overhaul… which may take months to occur, but I can dream.

    I was thinking how these shades are the complete opposite of a winter wardrobe, forgetting that Australia getting ready for summer haha.
