Most of my thrifted wardrobe comes from either the Goodwill or in the form of hand-me-downs. And usually, my thrifted wardrobe consists of sweaters or skirts. I have another sweater to show you all today. At least I’ve taken a turn from only having way too many thrifted skirts.
This yellow striped sweater is the newest addition to the thrifted side of my closet. (Actually, I don’t really keep my clothes separated in such a way; let me just make that clear, okay.) It wasn’t technically ‘thrifted,’ but more like ‘gifted,’ and as I’ve said numerous times before, hand-me-downs are Thursday Thrift worthy over here on the blog.
I wasn’t sure I’d like this sweater though. Number one: I didn’t know with what I’d wear it. Number two: it has puffy sleeves. I don’t ever like puffy sleeves. But, I took it anyway because all of the dresses I seem to make don’t have sleeves, and I always need a nice sweater to go with every one of them. I figured there was one dress it would wear well with.
This outfit will be my trial run to see if I can deal with sleeves, and it shouldn’t take me too long to know if I can deal with this particular type of pattern clashing. What do you think? Is this outfit a yay or a nay? Leave me a comment and let me know. Also, let me know if you have anything thrifted in your outfit posts. I always enjoy seeing how others style their thrifty finds.
FYI – I don’t think the yellow leggings are going to be making the final cut. After seeing these pics, I think it’s just a bit too much. It’s gonna have to be the sweater or the leggings when I leave the house, but not both.
