Thrifty Thursday featuring my first GIVEAWAY!

This week I decided I would check out the Goodwill in Kent, Ohio! I brought along my friend Marie. We had a ton of fun looking though all of the clothes! You can even see Marie found a cute new necklace (haha, she didn’t actually buy the Burger King necklace).

I was on a hunt for cute cardigans and pullovers! The leaves have changed in Kent, Ohio and in the matter of only 3 weeks, I guarantee you it will feel like winter here (yes I have cried about this 🙁 )! I also wanted to find more things to monogram and I convinced Marie that she needed to buy something to get monogrammed with me!

We were searching for about 20 minutes before I found anything. This Goodwill is not the biggest, but, I always say if you search, you will find something! And, I succeeded! YAY! First thing I found was the animal print cardigan. I am super excited about this cardigan! it fit me so well and it was the most comfortable thing ever…and it is adorable! It looks better on then it does on a hanger!

Then while searching again I found this adorable black and white cardigan. In this picture it kind of looks like a bathrobe, but I promise it doesn’t in person! In person it makes me look so little! it is synched at the waist and the material is so soft. It is going to be so warm for these cold days we are having.

Then, Marie found this purple pullover for me! I love it! I want to monogram this, but I’m not sure what color to monogram it with? What color do you all think? HELP ME! (I am kind of thinking white?) And finally, this zip-up gray sweater! I do not ever want to take this gray sweater off. Honestly, it is the most comfortable sweater I have ever owned. In the picture it was hard to see the detail on it! I honestly do not even know if I want to monogram this just because it looks like a nicer sweater.

I am dropping off the sweaters tomorrow so, let me know!

Now, it is the GIVEAWAY part! I decided to do the Giveaway now because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I wanted to include the amazing book, “Make Mine a Double, a Mastectomy that is” by Beth Kaufman!  photo-3

As of yesterday it has become Fall at Kent State. Today the high was 64 degrees and it was raining *sigh*, summer has officially come to an end, so that means that my outfits have to change! My favorite thing in Fall is boots, sweaters and scarves! This week as you can see, Shawna came with me to thrift! We went to Value discount in Akron, Oh. Shawna and I both LOVE to shop so naturally we were thrifting for 2 and 1/2 hours! Haha!

My favorite purchase is the yellow linen jacket that you see in the first few pictures! It was $4 and is the most comfortable thing ever! It’s perfect jacket for fall because it is heavy enough for the cool mornings walking to class but also light enough that I’m not hot in the afternoons. The leggings are not from this round of thrifting, but they were thrifted! Then the shoes were from when I went to Moonlight Madness in August! I am SO excited to be able to wear them now that it won’t be too hot to wear them. Then the scarf is not thrifted either but it went so well with the outfit. Next outfit! I am in love with this shirt! It fits me perfectly and it would look really cute under a jean jacket or a sweater for those cold nights!

Next, I bought the sweater today! Shawna and I fought over this sweater for a good 30 minutes! Haha! If you are an avid reader of my blog you will remember that I was super excited about the shoes that I’m wearing with this outfit! I bought them probably about a month ago for only $5! I wish I could say that this scarf was also thrifted but it is not… I bought this scarf from Zara about two years ago and it is my FAVORITE scarf. The colors just went really well with the whole outfit. Finally, this yellow sweatshirt… I do not know why I love it so much! But, what I do know is that it is perfect for fall (what sweatshirt isn’t?) and it has parrots on it! Why wouldn’t I love it?

So, you’re asking how much money I spent total for these outfits today, probably $9?!

Shawna’s turn! Shawna LOVES the comfy yet cute look! She rocks the different fleece quarter zips! I am also in LOVE with her boots! She reminds me of a Native-American in them! 🙂 The scarf that she is wearing the last picture is Lilly Pulitzer and has the most adorable elephants on them!

Shawna spent a total of $13 for the 3 fleece pullovers! I’m so proud of her :’)!

I hope you enjoyed this week’s Thrifty Thursday!

XOXO,

Danie
