Kindred Spirits

Teal sweater- Ann Taylor (via Junior League) ~$7
Snow leopard skinny pant- City Streets (JC Penny) ~$20
Brown leather braided belt- Vintage (from mom)
Tan moccasin- Lamb (The Shoe Department) ~$20
TOTAL: $47

            I love this sweater. I bought it over the summer when the Junior League was selling this 100% silk piece for just $7. It really doesn’t look like anything special but I have some strange special connection to it. I wonder who owned it before me? Perhaps we’re kindred spirits. Anyway, I finally got to wear it as it’s been a bit cooler. I love the pairing of textures in this outfit. Mixing prints is an art, but mixing textures is also a skill. I love these printed pants, but rarely wear them! They are so memorable that I feel the need to wait long periods of time between wears. Am I giving too much observational credit to my classmates?
            If you read this blog on the regular, you may notice that I RARELY wear my hair up. I think I look funny (read: bald) and it also hurts my head to wear it up for extended periods of time. On this day, I was headed to class after a bridal photo shoot and left my hair and make up from the shoot on all day. I’ll include a few behind the scenes pictures at the bottom.
Tell me readers, Do you think there should be a waiting period between wears for really loud or memorable pieces? Comment or email me at or tweet me at BsGoodwillHunt
Thriftfully yours,
PS Does this outfit sort of remind you of this J Crew ensemble? Unintentional, but I guess not subconsciously!
