Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I started my weekend with a shopping trip to my closest Triad Goodwill location in Randleman. I often get asked on Instagram which Goodwill I go to and I'm pretty much always at the Randleman location. It's a small store but it's always packed with lots of great goodies to thrift! Bonus: it's less than a five minute drive from my house. During this thrift trip, I was specifically hunting for pieces to put together some fun and festive holiday looks for the season! I absolutely love the challenge of shopping secondhand to create a look, especially a seasonal outfit for a special occasion. 

The weekend before, I thrifted three amazing vintage bags from the Goodwill outlet in Greensboro and I knew they were the starting point for some great holiday looks:

Aren't they gorgeous?!

I had a super successful shopping trip and was able to put together three holiday outfits from the pieces I took home from my closest Triad Goodwill location. I can't wait to wear these looks to upcoming holiday events!

My first look is definitely the most dressy and it's perfect for a holiday party. As soon as a I saw this amazing vintage coat, I knew I had to pair it with my gold clutch! My next thought was that this coat would look beautiful with a dress and I literally found the most perfect one! It's cream, black, and gold with pockets plus it was my size. It was definitely meant to be!

The second one is definitely my favorite because it feels so me! When I think of holiday style, I always think of sparkle so I definitely wanted to put together a look that incorporated lots of it. I found the metallic (it's a nice mix of silver and gold) top first and I knew it was going into my thrift cart. It's so pretty! A top like this is so versatile and can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. I also thought it would be really fun paired with my vintage silver bag. I was actually getting ready to check out when I spotted this pretty tweed overcoat. The pink grabbed my attention out of the corner of my eye and I was so excited that it fit me. Also, yes, pink is in fact a Christmas color!

Thrift Tip: Shop all of the clothing! Sizing is all over the place, especially depending on the brand. I found this top in a size section that I normally wouldn't look in. You never know what you might find or how an item might fit you. You could be pleasantly surprised! Read more of my thrifting tips in this blog post: Thrifting 101.

The third and final outfit is definitely a fun look that would be great for a casual Christmas get together. If you are looking for a fun and festive holiday sweater, be sure to check Goodwill first because I found so many cute ones while I was shopping! I love how this sweater looks paired with my black vintage bag. My oldest daughter has already asked if she can borrow this sweater from me!

I hope this post has inspired you to check out Goodwill for your next holiday outfit! You never know what you might discover when you shop secondhand this season. Thanks so much to Triad Goodwill for sponsoring this post! Have a great day and happy thrifting!

Currently Loving .245


Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! My week has been great but it's been extra busy. I am really looking forward to some relaxation this weekend! One of the fun things I did this week was attend a brunch at the new Pottery Barn store that recently opened at the Friendly Center in Greensboro. I was able to connect with other local influencers and learn more about the Friendly Center. I took home a gift box full of amazing goodies from their holiday gift guide!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving, including some of my own new arrivals! I am loving incorporating some festive sparkle and layers into my everyday looks right now. 'Tis the season for all things glittery and sparkly!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. J E A N S | I just got these jeans in the mail this week and I love them! They are high waisted, stretchy, and flattering. Size down one size from your non-Madewell denim size for the best fit.

2. B A G | I am so tempted to add this bag to my Madewell bag collection! I am loving this animal print and the size. Such a fun little bag!

3. P I N K  C O A T | I bought a super similar coat from Old Navy three or four years ago and I still love mine! I actually pulled it out to wear to an event this week and I got so many compliments on it. You just can't go wrong with a pink coat!

4. S N E A K E R S | I also got these sneakers in the mail this week (they are in the outfit photo above) and they are keepers. I really needed a new pair of sneakers for working out and these are so comfy! I'll definitely work out in them but they are also perfect for outfits as well. They fit true to your sneaker size. I think I'm going to get the black pair, too!

5. F L A T S | How pretty are these flats?! They just scream festive! I have a similar pairs that I bought a few years ago and finding this pair online makes me want to style mine again ASAP.

6. O V E R S I Z E D  C O A T | This coat is another new arrival and it's also in the photo above! I basically threw on all of my new purchases at the same time and I loved how they looked together. This coat feels more like a cardigan as far as the material goes but it's definitely heavy and warm like a coat. I sized up but really didn't need to but I am loving the cozy, oversized style!

7. N E C K L A C E | I absolutely love a dainty gold necklace. I just can't get enough! This pretty star necklace is on my wish list. I hope I find it in my stocking on Christmas morning!

8. P A J A M A S | Are you hunting for a gift for someone who is hard to shop for? Well, these pajamas are it! I just got them and they feel so luxurious! A couple years ago, I felt like a real grown up when I started wearing pajamas sets on a regular basis. J. Crew is my favorite spot to buy high quality pajamas that are so comfy and last for a long time!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
