Bow Tights & Pink and Purple Plaid in a Mostly Thrifted Outfit

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was mostly spent feeling overwhelmed about my phone surveys, but luckily I finished them up early on Sunday afternoon so I got to go to an Athens blogger meet up! I took only a couple pictures, but I'll probably post them tomorrow.

I wore this outfit to class today. It's nearly all thrifted which always makes me feel good. Does anyone else feel like a thrifting wizard when they wear a mostly thrifted outfit? I sure do! A wizard of savings.

top, skirt, shoes: thrifted | tights: forever 21 | jacket: ross dress for less | belt: old from Mom | necklace: stella & dot


This skirt is one of my favorite thrifted pencil skirts. I just think it's really unique with the bright pink and purple plaid. When I bought it I must have put on a little weight in the waist because I had the outer side button moved to give me more room. Now I can wear it at its original placement though. The only thing is, the outer button is still in its roomier placement, so I can only keep the skirt closed with the inside button. The belt keeps it all the way closed though, so no worries!


And how about my new tights? I picked them up the other week and I love them. I can't get enough sheer black tights with various patterns/shapes on them. They never last long enough though. I always wish tights weren't so fragile. 



I know I've thrilled you with my commentary on my clothes, but I can't think of too much else to say today. I just want to express my incredible relief over being done surveying people. That was seriously the worst experience of my college life. The constant stress was getting to be overwhelming and was disrupting my sleep. Some of you might be like, "that really couldn't have been that bad." It's bad when you're given a 40 person sample and only 3 respond after constantly annoying the crap out of them. Plus the fact that my grade rested upon the amount responses I was able to drag out of my sample. Ughhh. Anyway. It's over. I never have to talk about it again and you never have to read my twitter complaints about it. Good news all around!

Happy Monday!
