Outfitted In: 100% Already Loved

Striped Shirt, Estate Sale; Vintage Pickle Pin, Heritage Antiques; Floral Shirt, Jeans, Sandals, Lucky Bag: All Thrifted

So, about the ark in the photo. When I walked out to our apartment parking lot to take my outfit photo yesterday morning, one of our neighbors was washing his truck and spraying water everywhere. He happened to be right next to my car (which is where I take my photos), so I just drove to the thrifts without an outfit picture taken. Not a big deal. But when I got a little lost on my way home from the thrifts and happened upon this adorable playground, I had use the opportunity for a unique background! So, yup. That is why there's an ark in my photo. (Which is fitting, since I recently discovered a local Christian radio station that I love!)

So thrifting yesterday was pretty epic. Seriously. I got to Goodwill Outlet, and it wasn't too busy for the first time in a long time. It reminded me of the old days of GO, when I could go to the purse and shoe bins and pull out numerous finds! And I really hit gold this time. :) We're talking Minnetonka Mocs, Dooney & Bourke boat shoes, Sperry TopSiders, and leather flip flops- all in my size and new!!! And two vintage Coach bags and a vintage Dooney & Bourke bag! I absolutely couldn't believe my luck. :)

Photos of my finds and more fun stuff to come this week. :)



  1. I love the arc!! And I can't wait to check out these fabulous finds of yours!!! That's awesome!!

  4. Hello Amanda,

  5. Awesome background! And I'm so jealous of your haul from the GO. My luck with clothing and shoes seems to have run out...I've moved on to housewares. Hey, I'll be outta my mother's house someday, right? (When I'm 30, hahaha.)

  6. It's so great to hear from you Alya! My thrifting luck hasn't been too great either lately, but every once in awhile, good stuff comes along! :)
