Frugal hippie environmentalist


Despite the rain we've been having here in Portland lately, the temperature has been fairly pleasant, so I wanted to get in an outfit with bare legs while I could. This dress was a great one to wear during the summer (here and here), and I think it will work well through fall and maybe even winter as long as I have layers. Yes, I'm wearing the sweater I wore on Monday, but it's new (though thrifted) and oh-so-wonderfully-grandma-ish, which means I will be wearing it a lot for a while.

I feel very pleased that more than half of my outfit is thrifted! While I do love buying brand-new things every once in a while, at heart I'm a frugal hippie environmentalist, which means I love to buy inexpensive, previously loved clothes.





Dress: thrifted from Village Merchants
Cardigan: thrifted from Rerun
Hat, necklace and purse: thrifted from Red, White and Blue Thrift Store
Shoes: Jessica Simpson Dany heels from Macy's
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Bracelet: InPink
