Thrifting - How to: Put Together a Variety of Thrifted Items and Friday Instagrams of the Week

1 comment:
What an incredibly busy week this has been! Here are the photos from my adventures this week and more posts to come soon :) Just over a week until I leave for my big two week trip! 

The outfit below is an entirely thrifted outfit.  I didn't even realize it until I had to write about it.  I found the jean jacket for $5 in Japan and the rest of the outfit came from Treasure Seeker Colleen in Vancouver. Thanks Mum!

Here's a few tips for how I put the look together below:
  • A high waisted skirt with a print can be overpowering - a heel of some sort is a must to lengthen the look
  • The focus of the look is the print, so keep the rest of the look neutral
  • The jean jacket gives it a more playful and fun look, but it could also look great with a crisp white blazer or blouse
  • High waisted, long skirts can be dangerous - balance out your frame by showing more of your upper body (eg. tank, strapless, sleeveless, capped sleeve)

Happy weekend all!
