We love the mixed up look, but do not want to spend big bucks because we wear them so rarely and our husbands usually say, WHY? This is where Goodwill is a plus for mixing- things- up- fun and fashion thrift ideas!! When Spring Break began, I thought there is no better way to enjoy myself than to head out for a treasure hunt. The Chico’s jacket I discovered in Julia’s Attic is perfect for black and white pattern mixing and actually perfect for all types of styles this spring.
Pattern mixing works best when you keep colors within the same families of the patterns. In this picture, I have put under the Chico’s jacket a fun black and white blouse with horses!! I really like it and will probably wear it to work…running the risk that male co-workers will crinkle their noses.
While in Goodwill, I also thought a fun way to enjoy Spring Break would be to add some decoration touches to the house. Here are just a few of the pieces I purchased while there…I cannot tell you how much I love the lamp!! Maybe others were on beaches or stuck on a Carnival cruise ship somewhere…I am just content to have some shopping fun at Goodwill!
Now go enjoy the other bloggers of Visible Monday and Monday Bloom and MONDAY MINGLE and THRIFTER'S ANONYMOUS have an awesome start to your week!!
Your "living-like-you-feel-40" tip of the day: Don't lament if you do have the money to spend on high fashion or spring vacations, there are so many ways to have affordable fun...just get up and get out!!
All Goodwill purchases made in this post were from the San Antonio
location at Highway 281N and Bitters Road.
