Color block, train of thought. Thrifting success part 2.

This week I also purchased some yellow pants and cool animal print loafers, that I've been wanting for a while. (Now if I can just find red pants. hehe...)

Since I was posting my finds I decided "hey why not post an outfit too". I guess this is my first "official color block" though me and a couple of my dear friends thought it was fun probably before it was "cool". Ha. Anyway...

  • Nobo Blue button down top - thrifted, Goodwill, AR
  • Green vintage cropped blazer - thrifted, Goodwill
  • Red vintage pink daffodil cord belt - thrifted, yardsale 
  • Earrings - Angie's
  • Yellow pants- thrifted, Goodwill
  • Pazo Loafers- thrifted, Goodwill

And there was also this top that I purchased with the pants and shoes....
I actually wore this top and hat with dark skinny jeans and cowboy boots today, I think I was feeling some sorta way.

  • Serenade NY  multi-color print top - Goodwill
  • Red vintage cloche hat - Goodwill, VA

I've been thrifting with a "goal" in mind lately. This is definitely not something I'm used to because I'm always getting ideas as I shop.  I'm not sure if that's a good strategy, because it doesn't limit what I'm buying. What do you think?  Ha! Well we will see how this goes.

  1. Love the pants! Ive been wanting colored pants real bad lately. I actually went to some thrift stores 2 days ago to try to find some skinny jeans that I could luck

  2. Ah! I love all the colors! I don't think many people could pull off bright yellow pants, but you make it look fantastic!

    1. Thanks guys! Nicole maybe yard sales? I bet you have awesome yard sales where you are!
      And Hannah I was definitely "wondering" about the yellow at first, because I originally wanted red. But I'm satisfied for the moment... =)

  3. I actually have the perfect shoes that would match that first outfit perfectly. How do I post a pic? It would be considered thrifty cuz I bought them with my JCPenney discount. Just sayin...


  4. On the subject of color block, I think it is a gift when someone can put things together that, to the average eye, would not normally go together. IJS! I could never get away with some of these looks; lol. Great job Armanda.
