I know so many people who still believe the outdated style advice that you can’t wear white after Labor Day.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!

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.

Today is the last day of 2014, so that means it’s the final day of Thrifty Threads 365! For the entire year I’ve solely relied on clothes and accessories from the thrift shop, without spending a single dime on new clothing {excluding underwear, of course!}.
