The Modest Budget: Top 3 Favorite Thrift Skirts

Since I am just now headed back to Virginia from Alaska, and was not able to take outfit pics while I was up there, I thought I might share my Top 3 Favorite thrifty outfits from blog posts past!
My first fashion-specific blog post was back in October 2012, which seems like forever ago... Since then, though, my focus has shifted from "cute ways to wear skirts" to "cute ways to rock a budget!"
So each of these old favorites is about skirts, but they also feature at least one thrift find.
#1 Only Three Colors 8/5/14
This outfit is one of my faves because the bag and the skirt were thrifted and the button-down was a past-season Old Navy buy. Not only that, but it is a simple outfit that could be changed up by adding a color or pattern to make the look totally different. It's versatile and pretty cheap.

#2 My Full Price Shoes 5/11/13
Another one of my favorites because the skirt was a thrift find! Skirts are one of the best and easiest things to find at thrift stores... This is also a super practical outfit for all sorts of outings.

#3 So Here's To Some Happy 1/10/13
This color/pattern combo is still so fun! The scarf was from an antique store and the skirt was from (no surprise) a thrift store! One of my favorite ways to come up with these kinds of outfits is just layer on a bunch of colors and patterns to try and find what looks good... Sometimes it fails, but sometimes you find some looks that are really fun (like this one).


Hope you enjoyed this little throwback to some of my favorite thrifty finds! I'll be back with something new next week... and not orange (like last week's post and the week before;)
