I just want to be comfortable and warm… and cute with my thrift style! These thrift finds come together to help me accomplish all three of those things while rocking my thrift store finds.
My Thrift Style is Comfort
I’m happy when I’m comfortable. I work from home and homeschool my 3 year old son, so usually that means wearing sweats, a onesie, or pajamas. I’ve been trying to figure out my style again without relying on sweat pants everyday, so I turned to my closet and combined some pieces together that I haven’t worn together before. To be honest, I almost didn’t “dress up” or “dress nice” on this day. My hair wasn’t “done” and I was sleepy haha. I’m tired of the pressure that I put on myself to look immaculately put together when I take photos. I thought this meant that I’d lost my style, but it just made me think more creatively. Finding comfort in the creativity of my thrift style is how this outfit came to be.

Thrift Style Finds
I’ve been wearing this scarf to cover the fact that I have a few plats/braids in my hair. This time, instead of covering them, I used the scarf as an accessory to accentuate them. The scarf was a really cheap find at a thrift store that was going out of business. I actually wear it every night because it is either silk or satin and it helps my hair retain moisturize.
About the sweater… I happen to have 5 beige sweaters in my closet. FIVE, y’all. They all have their differences, but there are 5 of beige sweaters, nonetheless. This yellow sweater was a step in the right direction of diversifying my sweater collection. It is a little oversized and super comfy. It kept my neck super warm haha! Mustard yellow is also my favorite color for fall and winter, so the deep yellow makes my soul happy.
Last, the pants are a high waist pocketed comfy dream come true. They are made to look like a vintage style, but the construction seems new. They actually may not be high waist, but I wear them that way. That’s one really fun part of thrifting – there’s no telling how the original purchaser wore them and I have no clue how they were advertised by the company that sold them. I made them my own. Isn’t that what thrifting is all about?
