Thrifted, vintage & affordable outfit inspiration
A Denim Jumper For National Secondhand Wardrobe Day

A Denim Jumper For National Secondhand Wardrobe Day


I don’t know where all these holidays keep coming from but I will gladly wear a thrifted outfit in celebration of National Secondhand Wardrobe Day today, August 25th.

Everyday is National Secondhand Wardrobe Day to me. So I thought I’d step up my game by wearing this denim jumper that was a thrifted gift from none other than Katie of Thrift Your Heart Out.

It was part of a thrift exchange video collab we did earlier in the summer and, let me tell you, everyone should swap thrifted goods with a friend at least once in their life. It’s such a blast!

I was hesitant about owning a denim jumper because I didn’t think it would “go” with my personal style. But, thanks to a style evolution I went through this summer (aka hating everything in my closet and donating almost all of it), this dress perfectly fits the needs of where my aesthetic is headed.

I’ve found myself pulling away from pretty vintage looks in favor of more edgy apparel. I blame the Smurf hair! 😉

So, I dressed this denim jumper up with my favorite striped crop top from a thrift store, a vintage brown mini backpack, and a teal colored choker I made in about 3 minutes flat by adding a lobster claw to a piece of chain. I am the MacGyver of jewelry making, guys.

I’ve repeated this exact look a couple times this summer to run errands and I am now officially a denim jumper convert. It’s easy to see why these dresses are everywhere on blogs and in magazines!

I’d encourage you thrift one ASAP. I found the length of this one too long for my liking, so I actually chopped the bottom off. You can see the edge is left raw because I thought it looked cool. It can always get stitched up if I change my mind one day!

Is there a style you’ve recently bought at a thrift store to try and then fell in love? Tell me about it in the comments!

Wowwww, she couldn’t have thrifted a more cooler piece even if she tried!! It fits you absolutely PERFECT. I love where your style it headed – especially with your colorful hair! I think you fit the grunge kid so well. I always thought of 80s kids being a little grungey. And you are definitely the macgyver of jewelry. That choker idea was genius and completely transformed the outfit!!

I am really into your style evolution and you have some mad “make it work” jewelry skills!
