It’s rare that I go to a department store and see something I absolutely have to have. That happened during my weekly visit to Target. I found the greatest short set of all time!!!

Well, maybe not the greatest, but it’s super cute and perfect for summer. Instead of wearing it as a set, I paired the shorts with a recent thrifted gem.

I know, it sounds weird. Who wants to layer in the summer? Shouldn’t the warmer weather be about taking off those layers? Well, sure, but a light layer can actually be the perfect finishing touch for your summer wardrobe.

I paired a few of my favorite thrift finds, fun accessories and shoes from a new-to-me brand for an easy summer look.

You ever feel like you were born in the wrong decade? That’s how I felt when I found this gem of a jumpsuit. Why couldn’t I wear this amazing garment to party at Studio 54?!

Oh well, that era has passed, but I can still rock this cobalt blue jumpsuit now. And to think, I almost passed on this $5 beauty!

I know so many people who still believe the outdated style advice that you can’t wear white after Labor Day. But we know that’s not true, right? Right!

It’s never about what color you wear, it’s always about the material. White linen pants in the winter? No way! But white denim or a knit skirt? Yup. Here’s how I styled the white skirt I recently scored from Strawberry. I paired it with my cheap chic finds, including my thrifted Dior coat for a fun winter look.

ended almost two months ago for me. Though I successfully gave up shopping for new clothes for an entire year, I was curious to see how I would adjust post-TT365.

Would I go on a shopping spree? Would I just stick to thrifting because department store prices would give me sticker shock? How much would I spend?

Well, it’s been an interesting journey so far..
