Thrift Style Thursday - Trending

This week for Thrift Style Thursday, Martyna of Spoolish challenged us to create a look that rivals those on the runway and thrift something that is trending this spring.  Well, let me tell you, I had to do some research because I'm not up on the current trends as much as I pretend to be.  I even bought actual magazines you guys, this is a big deal, I never do that anymore!  In this month's issue of Redbook, there were some outfits put together with just a few key pieces in your closet, one being floral with stripes.  And then in this month's issue of Lucky, there was an article about a basic red/navy striped t-shirt being a good item to have in your closet.  I saw this shirt at the Goodwill and decided to start my "trendy" outfit with this t-shirt as the base.

I pulled out one of my oldest maxi dresses at this point and decided the "stripes with floral" would be how I would style this for today.  The magazines also both talked about floral scarves still being popular this year, so I added that.  I also noticed that metallics are still in fashion, so I added my favorite Stella and Dot bag.

And then both magazines also talked about denim at length - so I decided since it was chilly this morning I would add a denim jacket as well.

Jacket - Old Navy (thrifted), T-shirt - Gap (thrifted)
Dress - Cliche Mpls, Bag - Stella and Dot
Scarf - garage sale

So there you have it.  I don't know if I'm "runway chic" with this look or not, but apparently these are things that all the cool kids will be wearing this spring and thanks to Echosmith, I want to be like the cool kids, cause all the cool kids seem to get it.
