Sometimes you find a garment that just blows you away. Maybe it’s the actual garment and sometimes it’s your disbelief that a certain store carries such a cute piece.

That’s what happened when I went thrift shopping two weeks ago. I found this cobalt blue full midi skirt and fell in love. It was the color. The cut. The knee length split. And I was amazed to discover it was from Old Navy. Yes, Old Navy! I’ve never shopped at Old Navy {besides their dollar flip flops}, but I was surprised such a chic piece originated in their store.

It’s officially fall and while I may be rocking layers and chunky sweaters in a few weeks, for now I’m still hanging on to my summer threads. Well, with the addition of a fall wardrobe staple.

During my Salvation Army thrift shopping trip two weeks ago {I shop on Wednesdays when most items are half off!}, I scored big! And a few of the pieces I bought included an embellished crop top from H&M and a sheer maxi skirt from Zara. They were the perfect pieces for my latest Thrifty Threads outfit.

By now we all know {or at least I hope we do!} that not wearing white after Labor Day is a total fashion myth. You can wear any color you want during any time of the year. It’s really all about the material, not the color.

This week’s Thrifty Threads post is an ode to the girls who wear what they want, when they want, like this head to toe white look that features a mix of thrifted pieces and cheap chic department store finds.

Every now and then I find a stellar thrift store score. This is that moment! If you follow me on Snapchat {@PatriceJWill}, then you saw these high waist mustard pants a few weeks ago. They were just $2. Yes, 2 bucks!

I paired the pants with another thrift score for a look that’s less than $15.

A few years ago I did a post entitled I Hate My Legs. I hated the way they looked in shorts. Not in dresses, but just shorts, which I felt highlighted my short, stumpy stems and chubby knees.

It’s totally natural to have a body part that isn’t exactly your favorite asset. Well, fast forward a few years and I’m proudly showing serious leg in a pair of DIY cutoffs.
