Thrifty Threads 365: Peter Som for Kohl's
I remember checking out the Peter Som DesignNation for Kohl’s line last year and I was smitten. The easy, breezy look {Som says the line was inspired by St. Barths!} was just my style and there was a white moto jacket I had to have.
Fast forward months later and the line is finally available. I don’t have the moto jacket, but Kohl’s was awesome enough to send over a few pieces from the line. And once again, I’m in love. While I prefer a sweet frock or black skinny jeans, I was amazed to find I fell in love with the Peter Som printed pants and I got my moto fix with an asymmetrical zipper vest.

Thrifty Threads 365: No New Clothes for a Year!
Can you believe we’re already into the second quarter of 2014?! As usual, time has gone by way too fast, but sometimes it seems pretty slow, especially since I’ve given up buying new clothes thanks to my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge {full year of no new clothes, just thrifted!}.
I can honestly say I’ve held up pretty well over the last three months and haven’t felt the need to shop for new clothes, well, not really…

Thrifty Threads 365: Casual Weekend Wear
Last week’s Thrifty Threads was all about adding a touch of glam to everyday life {remember the $8 vintage dress}? Well, this week I took a total 180 and went super casual.
Though I adore a pair of stilettos and a flirty frock, some days require leggings and the most comfortable pair of shoes in your closet. But of course keeping it easy and breezy doesn’t mean being devoid of any style. It’s all about adding a few elements to keep it haute and interesting.

Thrifty Threads 365: No New Clothes for a Year Fashion ChallengeAs mentioned earlier this week, emerald green is having a serious moment.
And as I also mentioned, I barely wear green. But I finally remembered this vintage dress I scored a few years ago and it was finally time to take it out of the depths of my closet.
If you think major cities are the only places you can score at thrift stores, I’m here to tell you that’s so not true. I found this Pat Richards dress a few years ago while visiting family in Ohio and it was just $8. The store was in a small town but had a ton of amazing finds {be sure to check out my previous post: Benefits of Thrift Shopping in a Small Town}.
This was my first time wearing the dress and I absolutely fell in love with it. I felt like I was floating on air.

Thrifty Threads 365: See how readers scored statement making piecesI seriously can’t believe it’s already March and I really can’t believe Thrifty Threads 365 is heading into its third month. Though I love showing you guys my Thrifty Threads outfit posts, I really love seeing how you guys are surviving TT365. Because let’s be honest, it’s not easy giving up shopping for new clothes for a year. While some of you are doing the full year of thrifty threads, others are doing a few months.
And you’ve been great about tagging your photos with #ThriftyThreads365 and I love what I’m seeing. Last month I showed you how one reader transformed her thrifted palazzo pants in to three different dresses. And for this month, here are a few of my favorite photos from readers who are participating in Thrifty Threads 365.
