Thrifted Treasures - Yee-haw!

PURPLE CARDIGAN - Cynthia Rowley (thrifted) - via my mom
BLUE MATERNITY JEANS - Paige Premium Denim (thrifted) - $25
POLKA DOT BOW TIE SHIRT - I Heart Ronson (thrifted) - $2
FUR VEST - Sanctuary via Nordstrom - $50
HAT - Albertus Swanepoel for Target - $20
BLACK MARY JANES - Dr. Scholl's

Monday's Inspiration - Jessica Alba


"Yee-haw!"  Pigtails loves to shout this as she rides her stuffed animals around the house.  The other day I laughed when I found her riding Nemo, wearing a straw hat and waving it around.  She's created her own amusement park to entertain herself!

"Yee-haw!"
This is the outfit I wore to a baby shower at my house last week.  It was cold and rainy that day so I wore lots of layers.  The outfit also works for "Inspiration Monday," hosted by Two Birds, which is Jessica Alba wearing a fur vest and jeans.  The polka dot top, maternity jeans and the purple sweater are all thrifted, and the fur vest is my "go to" from Nordstrom.

Lately I've been scoring at the thrift store, especially with shoes and handbags.  I think it helps I go every week with my mom, Fair Isle.  I love finding a good deal, it makes me want to wave my Albertus Swanepoel for Target hat in the air and yell "Yee-haw!"

Oh I love your interpretation of this! I was just laying out my clothes for tomorrow (aimed to be the Jessica Alba look) and just thinking I lacked a suitable blouse, though I have a furry thing! Yay for thrifted purchases!

Bags and shoes are the best things to find when you're pregnant. No wondering if they'll fit after you go back to normal. :)

I love that picture of Pigtails.

UGH. I haven't been thrifting in forever. Gotta, gotta, gotta go!

Layers for necessity are sometimes annoying because you gotta take them on and off.

This look is great on you. The layers you choose compliment your figure instead of making you look bulky. I'm jealous of all of your thrifting finds, especially that polka dot blouse!
