Thrifty Thursday: Mad for Plaid

Confession time: If I don’t have layers on, I freak out. Like serious panic attack. I just can’t handle it because I think adding layers gives your outfit that much more dimension and character….and you know that’s what I’m all about. I’m a fan of anything that makes your outfit personalized to your own unique style. That’s why today’s thrifty find is the BDG Cropped Flannel Shirt from Urban Outfitters. It is 50% off and on sale for only $19.99. It’s the perfect layering find.

Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that it comes in four adorable patterns? Well because guess what……it comes in four adorable patterns!! I want them all, and I will probably buy at least 2..or 3…or 4 of them! At just $19 it’s a steal. Plus the fact that it is slightly cropped makes it super girly. Mixing and matching is the way to go and so mixing in a girly touch with a masculine styled shirt is just perfect.

A shirt like this really is a staple because you can wear in just about any way you want. Leave it hanging open, button it all the way, laying loose, tucked into a high-waisted skirt or shorts, tie it up………so yeah, basically any way you want!

Have fun with this one! Make it you. love it. layer it.

Get mad for plaid.

Cheers!

Giveaway Monday: Stitched & Adorned Tunic!

Happy Monday Everyone! I want this to be the best week ever for you- don’t let me down! I was so excited about this week’s giveaway that I just had to put it on and make it into an outfit! Stitched & Adorned is an amazing company I stumbled upon. You could say I instantly fell in love. Here’s what sold me about S & A: nothing they sell is over $50! Fifty dollars, dolls. I absolutely love that because it goes to show that fashion does not need to cost a fortune! It’s all about how you accessorize and personalize your outfits. Mix old and new, timeless pieces with the trendy ones, and unexpected colors and with different patterns. The beauty of mixing and matching is that whatever you wear becomes YOU. And guess what? Nobody else in the world can ever be you. And you can’t be them. But why would you want to be? We are meant to be ourselves. So make what you wear everyday reflect that! And by doing that you will inspire others to do that too.

Tunic: Stitched & Adorned, tights and bracelet: Forever 21, belt: H&M, boots: Isle Jacobsen, silver necklace: antique, color necklace: SoJo Boutique in South Jordan, Utah, and the slip under the tunic is Free People.

The color of this piece is perfection- almost neon which is huge right now! And I love the length…oversized is the way to go! It lets you wear your clothes a million ways. You could tuck it in and wear it with jeans, pair it with leggings and a cropped top, or make it look more like a dress like I did by wearing a longer piece under it! So adorable. So unique. Everyone will love what you are wearing. A total winner.

Speaking of winning-make this piece from Stitched & Adorned yours! You really can’t pass this up friends.
