Hello my thrifty Friends!
I thrifted this Zara Tweed Trench a little while back for only $5, and it’s one of my most favorite pieces that I have acquired to my collection. I love how light it is and especially with the cream color, it’s a great transitional piece for going into early spring. I also love the fine details on the sleeves and pockets with the small fraying details of chiffon. It’s a really delicate and girly touch, that adds instant way to dress up any look.
As a monochromatic maven, I love putting together looks that are simple and clean, with a little of something extra. I also thrifted this faux suede saddle bag recently for only $1, that I thought really complimented this look as well. The best thing about these pieces is that they hardly look pre-loved, they look very much brand new to me. I paired these two thrifted pieces with my American Apparel t-shirt and Riding skirt of the same color hue, as well as these lace up block heels. I was going for a slightly elevated casual day look, something perfect exploring around the city.
I really liked how this look came together, it felt like an effortlessly chic look once it was put together, and I’m all about that life! I especially loved how everything fit within the same color scheme, but had its own contrast of standing out features without being too much or too overwhelming.
I’d love to see different Monochromatic outfit options that you guy may come up with!
