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.

It inevitably happens. You walk into a thrift shop and head straight for the racks. Um, that’s OK, but if you really want some serious jewels, you might want to switch that up.

Here’s why I suggest shopping the jewelry case and accessories first!

When I go thrifting, I don’t typically seek out vintage garments in particular. I buy whatever speaks to my style and sometimes that’s a 70s pleated dress or a Zara necklace. But I do notice I subconsciously pick up vintage clothes and accessories. The pieces are just so unique and have superior craftsmanship, which is something you don’t get with fast fashion.

But how do you wear vintage in a way that’s not costume-y? This week’s Thrifty Threads is all about mixing vintage and contemporary pieces for a modern look.

It looks like spring might finally be on its way {yay to 50 degree temps in NYC this week!}. Though we tend to layer up during winter, this also continues throughout spring. With chilly mornings and semi-warm afternoons, we still need a few layers to stay warm but also amp up the style factor.

This week’s Style Equation is all about layering a button down and sweater for an effortless spring look.
