I'm A Thousand Miles Behind, With A Million More To Climb



Photobucket


Plaid Shirt: Value Village $5, Tshirt: Value Village $3, Shorts: ?? very old, Tights: $5, Boots: Spring $15, Purse: Wild Rose $20

I have searched thrift stores for the perfect plaid shirt for a very lllooonnngggg time, it has been surprsingly difficult to find but finally i found one i liked!!! I just love the dark muted colours and it has blue elbow pads, how cool is that, definitely havent found many shirts with those. I found this plain grey shirt in the mens section of Value Village for three dollars. I always forget to buy basic things when i am thrift shopping because there is always so much great unique stuff. I really need to stock up on some plain tshirts, they are beyond handy and i am really into super simple outfits at the moment. You can kindof see in the photos that i tried to do something with my hair, i curled it with my hair straightener :). It looked a bit better in real life though, the wind while i was taking these was terrible, there were so many bad blooper pics. I hope everyone had a lovely evening and happy thanksgiving to any Canadians!!!!!!

Oh what a lovely flannel, those elbow pads are splendid. I totally know what you mean about forgetting to buy plain things, I have way too many patterns in my closet! I would so love to go thrifting with you sometime, would be lovely!
