Luckily we found both the pink GAP button down shirt and the off-white Abercrombie skirt in the childrens section so they were lower in price than you would normally find at a Goodwill Thrift Store.

This colorful outfit is certainly full of all of those qualities!   This poppy orange/red pullover sweater was thrifted and worn with Rockstar Printed Skinny Jeans from Old Navy.

These bright red wild flowers are growing all over the side of the road in The Woodlands and I keep thinking they will make an amazing backdrop for pictures.      I will post one picture of how many cars were around us but when you crop them out, it looks fantastic!

I get comments asking if our outfits are entirely thrifted … No, they are Not!

My theory on this is to splurge on items you really want and will wear, save money on all the rest.   Abby LOVES her “Miss Me” jeans and wears them alot!   She also wanted a “cute” backpack so we found this Victoria Secret sequin backpack on ebay.  The espadrilles were on clearance at Target for under $10 (can’t remember the price exactly).   

We incorporate the thrift store finds in with the quality “must have” items!  She has even given me a list of items to look for.  

Her answer when asked “where did you get that?” … “I don’t know my mom got it for me!”

This cute striped sweater from the GAP, via Goodwill was only $5.99!
