A Nifty Thrifty Outfit

Since the 'spending money' budget hasn't had much room for buying new clothes lately (maybe I shouldn't buy lunch all the time at work...) I've been doing a lot of mixing and matching what I already have.

Skirts are absolutely my favorite thing to wear to work. Whether it's pencil skirts, dressy skirts, or casual skirts that are able to be dressed up, I love the streamlined look of a flowy top cinched at the waist by a skirt. So classic, pretty, and kind of sexy without being trashy.

I bought this floral skirt at Goodwill several years ago. It's great to wear in the summer with a tank top, but I hadn't really ventured into the professional territory with it. That is, until this week.


A pair of black tights and a cozy blazer made the skirt work-appropriate and the outfit got lots of compliments!
Not to mention, it was a good bangs day.

Can't go wrong with a good bangs day.

  5. Hi, I am just catching up on all of your post. Really enjoying reading your blog. Your post are simple and funny. Love your new shoes especially because the heels are practical and the colors are great. How cute is this skirt that you found at Goodwill...love it. I have a similar one that I have yet to wear but I love how you have paired it. I am so happy that someone else is using what they have in their closet to remix...keep up the great job on remixing. dawn suitcase vignettes xo
