What I Wore Sunday, Vol. 2: Thrift Store Score

Sweater, Ann Taylor LOFT (thrifted); tank, Motherhood Maternity; pants, Old Navy; shoes, Target; necklace, gift

After linking up to What I Wore Sunday for the first time last week, I was inspired to go shopping for some new Mass clothes. Since I have quite a few pairs of pants and a few skirts, I mostly looked for tops. I hit up the closest thrift store, hoping to find a few bargains, and was very pleasantly surprised - I found three sweaters, two tops, and a dress for about $30. All of them were quality brand names, too, so I felt like I got a pretty good deal. After all, I can't remember the last time I saw a sweater at Ann Taylor or Banana Republic for $30, let alone a dress! I found a pair of boots to go with the dress today, so look for that outfit in the next couple of weeks!
I wore one of the sweaters this morning with a pair of dark gray pants and my black flats. Even though the sweater is a more summery shade of pink, the dark pants tone it down enough to make me feel like I'm wearing a fall outfit.  I love the pants because they are cut like dress slacks, but are made of a stretchy cotton blend material that is actually comfortable. Since I spend a fair amount of time moving enough to keep Emily or Erin happy at church, stretchy fabric is important. I'm still not brave enough to wear heels and walk around with a baby, so I wore flats. As usual, I wore my silver cross (and bridal set, of course!) You can ignore my somewhat messy hair in the picture - we'd been out to lunch and made a quick stop at Target by the time we got around to taking pictures.

I'm linking up at Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore Sunday! Head on over and check out the other lovely ladies' church outfits! 


  1. You know how I feel about thrifting! :)

    You look great! And I love bright color in the late fall/winterish because everyone else is wearing dark colors and it's so glum looking.

  2. Perhaps this has convinced me to do a little thrifting! That shirt is lovely and the color looks great on you. Big fan of pink!

  3. I don't really believe in seasonal colors, so pink is fine all year round! Great job with the thrifting :)

  4. I love great thrift store finds! I can get 4x the amount of clothes for alot less money!
