#ThriftyThursday: Opening up to Kentucky's "fall" weather

September 28, 2017

#ThriftyThursday: Kentucky fall weather is certainly unpredictable! With the temperature spike back into the 70s and 80s, open front cardigans and simple skirts have been keeping my style practical for both the chilly mornings and muggy afternoons.

 

Before I rave about my love for knits, this outfit is a perfect example of a fall transition. I purchased this Willi Smith sleeveless top at the Paducah location for just $3.99. It’s the sweetest pale pink, mixed with olive and beige tones. The cinched hem creates a bloused illusion, but I love it tucked into this skirt!

 

Button up skirts have been literally everywhere this year - in every fabric, cut, and style. My wardrobe inspo is loving this J. Crew denim pocketed swing skirt! (It is seriously SO cute!) Look for detailed buttons. If you notice, this skirt has brown buttons that coordinate this entire look. The best part: I purchased it for just $3.99.

 

Here’s my rave: I LOVE open front cardigans. (I mean, I chalk thrifting a name brand sweater that I can wear year round with nearly every outfit as a win!) My favorite trendsetters have mentioned how important a neutral cardigan is in a lady’s wardrobe, and I couldn’t agree more! I purchased the pictured Coldwater Creek sweater at the Georgetown location for $4.29. It’s quality is fantastic! I have worn this sweater a ton, and it still looks great!

 

Be ready for when the weather breaks. This is the perfect time of year to thrift cozy, practical pieces that can be worn from one weather change to the next! Shop the color of the week sale at your local Goodwill.

 

Best,

A
