A Thrifted Shirt for a Busy Day

casual striped shirt

Hello there, everyone.  Is it the middle of the month already?  I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t have a calendar right here next to me to prove it.  Another month almost in the archives and it has just flown by!  Here I am again taking about thrifting and clothes – there hasn’t been an intervention yet.  Today was all about being casual while getting back into the swing of school.  There was plenty going on and the day was a busy one with school work, a trip to the city and the park, plus laundry, a little bit of cleaning, oh and that little project of painting the boy’s room – it’s finally happening.  I am more than ready for this weekend, that is for sure.

I’m a little late posting today, and I was a little hesitant about taking outfit photos this morning, but I got it done and now I must talk a bit about my item of the week.  This shirt was the only thrifted item I could find in my wardrobe this morning that would work for a casual day about.  (Actually, the skirt was thrifted as well.)  I have plenty of other casual items, yes, but you’ve either seen them, they are not blog worthy, or I couldn’t find any of them when I was looking for something to wear.

A striped shirt always gets a ‘yes’ from me while out shopping, and a very cheap, Goodwill striped shirt gets a super big YES when it’s found amongst a rack of things that I almost didn’t bother to look though.  I found this shirt on one of my quick thrifting trips.  I was near a Goodwill, had a few extra minutes to kill before needing to be at a scheduled appointment, so I picked a few rows and began shuffling through the hangers of clothes.  I much prefer taking my time when looking for that one item amongst many, but sometimes something will show up right away, as was the case this day.  Stripes are a favorite and I am always in need of new shirts.

There’s not much more to say about this one, so that is about all from me for this week.  I’ve got a blogging queue all lined up in my head, I just need to find a little bit of time to get it typed out and onto the blog.  In the mean time, is there anything thrifted you would like me to check out?  Leave me a link in the comments, or tag your post #ThursdayThrift so I can find it and add it here.  Until next time, happy thrifting!

  1. That is a great shirt. I have so many shirts now days. When I get this chemo behind me I sure hope I can have a closet selling time and sort through my most wanted and loved and let the rest go on to some one else’s destiny. LOL

Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
