Thrifted Outfit Thursday: A Bright Sunshiny Day

We are just too lucky here in California. The weather has been downright gorgeous, with sunny days and light breezes. I would definitely say that spring came early and I just had to embrace it with my outfit. I was inspired by chambray after filming my lookbook, so I decided to pop some bright accessories with a simple chambray button up and fun floral pencil skirt and enjoy the bright, sunshiny day!

Thrifting 101: Plan Ahead!


Whether you’re planning a full on “thrift day” or just popping by after work, it’s helpful to plan ahead. It’s always good to know where the stores are in your area and what other customers have to say about their experience in each store. Shopping time is valuable and you don’t want to waste it driving around aimlessly or visiting a terrible store!

The best site to help you find thrift stores in your area is The Thrift Shopper. Seriously, this site is ah-mazing. Through reader tips, it logs all of the thrift stores across the nation and you can search by city or zip code. I know it may seem like I know all of the stores in Sacramento, but trust me, this resource has become invaluable when I’m traveling to an unfamiliar neighborhood.

Using that site, I’ll plug the store names into Yelp to see what other shoppers have to say. I always make sure to look at photos of the store, along with a handful of the reviews to get a feel for what types of items they sell, what their price point is, and if they hold regular sales.ย Knowing what you’re getting in to will help plan your visit and know which stores to add to ย your route and which to avoid.

I hope this tip helps you all plan your trips to make the most of thrifting!

Alright, class is adjourned…
