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.

I love color, that’s pretty evident by my typically bright outfits. But sometimes I like to tone it down. However, neutral doesn’t have to equal boring.

In this week’s Thrifty Threads, I’m rocking head to toe thrift. Literally, from my earrings to my shoes, everything is thrifted {well, minus my rings that were $1 each}.

Last week I made my third appearance on the Today Show, but it was my first time appearing alongside Kathie Lee and Hoda. I always love their energy and was excited to stand alongside this duo.

And anytime I can combine two loves {fashion and travel}, it’s always a good thing! This particular segment was all about jet setting in style and travel hacks {similar to my how to pack a carry-on post}.

From convertible fashion and accessories to the must haves that make your flight as comfortable as possible, I shared the affordable items you absolutely need. If you missed the segment, check it out {and some behind the scenes photos!} below. Also, I’m sharing details on the romper I wore, since I received so many requests!

15 Dollar Store – Review & Giveaway – CLOSED

Last year a reader introduced me to the 15 Dollar Store. Yup, that’s the name of the store and yes, all apparel and accessories are just $15. Though I love a great deal, I value quality more than anything. So when the people at15 Dollar Store presented me with the opportunity to review one of their items, I jumped at the chance.

Since I’m obsessed with chunky, men’s inspired watches, I decided to review the Geneva crystal and mother of pearl link watch in rose gold. It kind of reminds me of Michael Kors watches, which cost hundreds of dollars, but this one was a fraction of the cost.
