As the sunny days of summer turn into the cooler days of fall, there’s one big question on our collective minds.
What should we wear?
This yearfall fashion calls for shearling, ’80s styles, monochromatic red, plaid, novelty knits, oversized outerwear, lots of fringe, romantic floral prints, capes and more.
Leggings are everyone’s favorite, right? Just mention this sweet, sweet article of clothing and women melt. What’s not to love. Stretchy. Comfy. Trendy. However, there are some fashion dos and don’ts when it comes to how to wear leggings. There is also no shortage of opinions on these “rules.” So, what’s right and what’s wrong? As always, when it comes to style, there is no right or wrong but rather suggestions to start with.
Fall fashion makes us giddy. It’s like the beginning of a new year for your closet. It gets us really excited to change things up a bit and try out new trends. We pulled together a list of top fall must haves for your wardrobe. Take note of what you’d like to try this season and start your search by shopping thrift. Your money will go further, and you can save your hard-earned cash for other fall musts like pumpkins, hayrides and pumpkin spice lattes on the daily. Read on, friends!
We’ve got spirit. Yes, we do. We’ve got spirit. How ’bout you?
It’s our favorite time of the year as another football season kicks off. We’re ready to cheer on our home team in style with winning looks featuring second hand fashion that reflects our u-rah-rah spirit that never takes a break, even in the off-season.
We tend to look forward to fall for all the pretty colors, the fun décor and pumpkin spice everything. Let’s be honest though, what we are really excited for is the fall fashion. We can say hello to our oversized sweaters and stretchy leggings. We can cozy up in our flannel and warm socks. But what is trendy this year besides the same old, same old? Well, there are some new fall trends to try out. Have fun experimenting!
After spending the wad on kids’ back-to-school supplies and name-brand clothes, you aren’t left with much. Literally.
What’s a mom to do? We still want to look amazing, have new clothes and keep up with all the latest looks. Kids aren’t the only ones who want to greet a new season in style, after all.
Second hand fashion to the rescue!

If you took our quiz (find it here) and concluded you are a name brand lovin’ fashionista, it means that you gravitate toward tags. It means that you probably could pinpoint the brand of an item you found without even looking at the tag. It means you value a name for quality, style and reliability. It means that you also have your favorite brands and sizes and tend to stick to them. If something works, why change it, right?
The thrill of the hunt can pretty much be defined as finding a great vintage or vintage inspired clothing piece while thrifting and paying a fraction of the cost for it. Not only will you have bragging rights, but you will have something that defines your unique style and sets you apart from everyone else.
There is something to be said about a closet filled with wardrobe basics. Having simple and classic pieces to pair together makes dressing for the day easy and efficient, not to mention it’s a huge time-saver. Having a love for basics doesn’t have to mean you’re boring though. It means that you are comfortable with your easygoing style and are creative enough to find ways to make each look still feel uniquely you. You don’t need flashy trends that fade quickly clogging up your closet.
If you have yet to take our quiz, find it here. If you have taken the quiz and you’re here, you figured out that you gravitate toward basics, but what exactly does that mean?
Just like fashion, thrift shopping has a certain style and pattern to it. Some thrifters are diggers, sifting through each item, being sure not to pass up a hidden find. Others take a cursory look at what’s in their line of sight and move on to the next thing. You have your stay-a-while thrifters vs. your quickie shoppers and your regulars vs. now-and-agains. Some are looking for steals of a deal while others are looking for investments in designer brands.
