What I Wear To Go Thrifting

Outfit: red and white striped tunic, denim studded vest, vintage red sunglasses pin, green hair, red lipstick, black leggings, black flats

You don’t have to have a thrifting uniform to go thrifting, but it helps!

What I wear to go thrifting isn’t as jazzy as my usual outfits. Like most thrifters, my clothes are there to serve a purpose and that purpose is squeezing down crowded aisles, using the open floor as my dressing room, anticipating temperature changes and, lastly, to look good.

This is what I wore on my most recent outing and I thought it was the perfect example to give you some inspiration on what to wear on your next thrifting trip.

I think I’ve mentioned before that leggings and a tunic are my favorite quick-grabs on early mornings. While this is my thrifting uniform, it’s also my babysitting uniform, my lazy day uniform, my… well, you get the picture.

My fear of pairing red with my green hair has finally ceased. I finally feel comfortable rocking these two colors together. One might even think I went a little overboard wearing this red tunic with red lipstick, and one might be wrong. The red theme continued by adding this stellar sunglasses pin on my vest. I like to think that wearing thrifted items brings me some kind of luck + it helped to add a little personality to an otherwise simple outfit.

Lastly, I picked flats because I like having footwear that is easy to get on and off for trying on potential shoes. You just never know where you’ll meet your new favorite pair!

As the months start getting hotter, I’ll most likely switch things up to something more along the lines of what I talked about in my “5 Ways To Step Up Your Summer Outfits” post. But for now, this is good enough for me!

I guess you’ll have to wait until Friday to see how lucky I was with thrifting this month. That’s when I’ll be posting my new thrift haul video for your viewing pleasure. I can’t wait to show you!

What do you usually wear when you have a day of thrifting ahead of you? Do you put any thought into or do you just wing it? I’m very curious to know!

I’m linking up with Being Zhenya for #ThriftStyleThursday.

    I agree, thrifting uniform definitely helps! I like to wear something simple, so that I can quickly try things on. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves when people take forever in the fitting room!
    Also, come link up with us today if you’d like – http://beingzhenya.com/thriftstylethursday/

    • I always wonder what people are doing that take so long in a dressing room. Did they suddenly find the Lost City of Atlantis in there? haha Thanks for extending an invite to me, Zhenya. I totally linked up and will probably do it more in the future! 🙂

        Haha right? I think some people get distracted and go on their phones too! One time, after trying things on for about 20 minutes my Fitbit informed me that I was doing aerobics 🙂 Come link up tomorrow too! Xo

        • What a funny Fitbit! But really.. sometimes it DOES feel like a workout flinging clothes on and off. lol

  • Yep, I rarely go thrifting in my “blog clothes”. I’m usually in jeans, a scoop neck tee, and a headscarf to keep my hair out of the way. And slip on shoes are a must! I have gone thrifting after work (back when I worked) in a dress, a belt, tie up shoes, etc, and it’s such a pain! This is a pretty cute outfit regardless, though. That brooch!

    • That outfit combination still sounds delightful! I think the headscarf makes all the difference. 😉 Thank you! I cherish my sunglasses brooches and wish I had them in every color. They are the quintessential ’80s accessory, in my mind.

  • Does this mean you’re joining Thrift Style Thursdays?! I have a huge confession: I am a big fan of yours! Not like the scary stalker type, BUT I first came across your YouTube channel looking up pixie hair styles – yay for short haired girls!! – and then kept watching because you are so funny, cute, real and fun!! Ok, embarrassing gushing over now! I also have a thrifting “uniform” because comfort and versatility for trying things on. Great post, hope you decide to keep linking up with us!! 🙂

    • Aww, Kristi, you are so awesome for saying so! Zhenya had invited me to link up and I thought “why not?”, my outfits are mainly 90% thrifted anyways! Plus, I love being able to connect with more thrift-minded bloggers. I will try to link up as often as I can. Thanks for being a stalker/fan. 😉
