january 8th {eyelet}

merona blouse {thrifted target stock}   ·   loft skirt {thrifted}
madden girl sursey pumps {thrifted}

whenever i wear navy, i seem to always want to pair it with maroon, orange, or cognac.  i forced myself to pick a different color from my closet to pair with this cute navy eyelet skirt and really liked the way the different blues played off each other.  this skirt and these shoes wrap up all of the items i thrifted at the goodwill in georgia over christmas holidays.  unlike the goodwills in minnesota, i really have to dig there and accept that each clothing item is a set price and it's unlikely that i will find something with the right colored tag that would offer an additional discount.  i think that leads me to be more excited about my finds {i am still on a little bit of a high from that j crew blouse} than i am here, where i find so much stuff i tend to be just so-so about but for really cheap prices.  hopefully i can start to carry that selective mentality to my thrifting here in minnesota.

i know i talk about thrifting a lot, so if it's not something you're into you'll have to forgive me - it's my main form of shopping and it's become a passion the past few years but i obviously still have a lot to learn!

let's chat!  what is a color combination you always wear?  can you think of a different color to swap in and try instead next time?
