Would you believe this outfit is thrifted? Well, if you read the title then you would 😉 Lately I’ve been doing some Goodwill challenges for fun and to challenge my styling ability. I also wanted to show that it’s possible to put together chic looks everywhere…you might just have to do a little searching and experimenting. Here are my chic Goodwill finds and the outfit I put together!


My Chic Summer Goodwill Finds

For this post, I was going for a chic summer vacation look with pieces that I could wear again. Because you know that’s what I’m all about.

I’ve seen white cropped flare pants everywhere lately, so I thought they’d be a great staple for this look.

I paired it with a striped shirt because no matter where you get it from, stripes will always be a classic. And they look great in summer. This blazer is linen which I also believe is a staple for this season!

The shoes just had that summer European vibe that I thought complemented the look. However, the bag (oh and the sunglasses) were not a Goodwill find. Though I’ve seen a lot of straw type bags there! Trends always come back around and when styles like vintage and 80’s come back there’s always a surplus of “trends” you can find at thrift stores. So there’s your tip for the day! If you want to try out a trend and barely pay anything for it, check out a thrift store first (though, sidenote, thrift stores are getting more expensive lately I’ve been noticing and sometimes it does make more sense to buy new).

All in all, it was a fun time putting together this outfit and I liked the end result. I enjoyed finding some gold nuggets amongst the not so great nuggets 😉

You can’t shop this exact look (besides the bag) but here are some similar pieces to recreate this look:
-sunglasses-local boutique (similar here, here, and here)
-striped top (similar here, here, and here)
-white culottes (similar here, here, and here)
-linen blazer (similar here, here, and here)
-sandals (similar here, here, and here)

Have you ever had any luck thrifting?
