Welcome to Thrifted Thursdays! A fashion segment dedicated to highlighting second-time-around style. My personal style is centered around chic simplicity with key eclectic accents. I would say about 50 percent of my closet is comprised of secondhand gems, all of which have their own special place in my heart, just as your fabulous finds probably have their place in yours. This denim blouse is a staple for me. Its deliciously soft and is comfortably oversized, but it’s also just the right shade of blue that it can go from casual to edgy effortlessly.

Pro-thrift Tip: Don’t underestimate scarves! They can really pull an outfit together, and are often overlooked- hey, more for me (and you)! I found this vintage Coach scarf at one of favorite local consignment shops, and it perfectly summarizes the color palette of the whole outfit without being monotonous. The creaminess of the silk up against the brushed suede of the bag adds a little bit of lux to a minimal look. Playing with textures is key, especially when you want to either thrift or source from local artisans.
