I don’t have many occasions that require me to change outfits throughout the day but Saturday was one of those rare times for me.
From Event Hosting to Running Errands
I got to host my own program at the Monroe Public Library that was all about thrifting and then run errands in the afternoon. Bloggers, they’re just like us!
It was my first public speaking situation and my first time acting as a hostess with the mostest for a community gathering!
My outfit was carefully chosen to express my excitement for the day. I wore the dress as-is with high heels for hosting and then changed into a white denim jacket & flip flops for grocery shopping. Nothing like an outfit that can pull double duty!
(And yes I outfit repeated this look from last year!)
👗 WHAT I’M WEARING 💄
All thrifted under $10 total! (shop similar dress, shop similar jacket, shop similar purse, shop similar high heels) | Walmart flip flops, $1 (shop similar shoes) | Wet ‘n Wild lipstick in Mauve Outta Here (shop exact lipstick) | DIY necklace | Color Club nail polish in Blue Ming (shop exact color here)
🛍 SHOP MY LOOK 🛍
But let’s chat more about the program! It was such a fulfilling day and I want to share as much as I can from it.
The Hostess With The Mostest
I was nervous beforehand of who would be there but was pleasantly surprised to recognize all but two faces.
The intimate crowd was preferable because that way it allowed us to have some great conversations about thrifting without much pressure, which was a highlight for me.
Step By Step
Planning the program was fun but there were a few times where I felt a bit like a Bridezilla with my demands. Luckily everything came together and the decor was colorful, the crowd was enthusiastic, and the slideshow went off without a hitch.
So I guess it was like a wedding to me?! lol
A Gift For You!
For all of you that were unable to attend (I did get to meet one blog reader – hi!), I put together a list of previously written blog posts that cover a lot of what we talked about. I’ll keep the rest under wraps in case I get a chance again in the future to share my knowledge with another library or establishment. (Hire me! 😉)
The biggest THANK YOU to everyone that showed up, and to the Monroe Public Library for taking a chance on my thrifting knowledge and public speaking skills. 😊
