Thrifted Thursday: Floral and Denim

Happy Thursday! We are one day closer to the weekend! Today's post is about something that is thrifted(obviously, look at the title)...but seriously, I couldn't wait anymore to wear this dress and share it with all of you! 

I went to Goodwill a few weeks back and found this dress and purse. I fell in love with the print of the dress as well as the cut and fit. It was like it was made for me and was sitting there waiting for me to come in and get it! 

I also found this purse that I seriously cannot get enough of. I think it is totes adorbs (totally adorable) and sort of reminds me of a purse I had as a child. Of course that one was pink and had my monogram on it but similar style none the less. 

I love a good jean jacket this time of year too as we are in a transition period here in Michigan. This dress is more of a spaghetti strap and has no coverage for the arms. Given that the current temp is only in the 60's, I decided to go with a little more coverage with the jean jacket. I also have on these strappy wedges that were a recent purchase from TJ Maxx. They are Steve Madden brand and are comfortable and were a great price. 

So for the dress and the purse, my grand total was $7.52. It was originally $10 I think, but I had a coupon. That's right- I'm that thrifty that I shop at Goodwill and use coupons! If you sign up for their loyalty program, they send you emails that have coupons in them too! 

The other items I will be able to wear all spring and summer and by the end of that time, the CPW (cost per wear) will be very low. 

Here are some pics of today's outfit- the first is the one I used on Instagram as I am also using it for today's Style Me April and Coast to Coast challenges- I might also add that it is incredibly windy and I didn't notice the red trash that blew next to me in the pics:








What's the best thing you ever thrifted? Any other good tips or tricks we should know about? 

Thanks for reading and following along with me!
