Hey Guys! Long time no blog? Is that a thing?! Well anyways, it is so nice to start getting back into blogging after a summer of virtual silence. I shared over Instagram, but I work at a christian camp all year long. Our busiest time is summer, so time for other things goes out the door. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. I love my job, and I believe with my whole heart that this is what God wants from me! Let me tell you when you know that everything else does not matter!
For today’s post, I challenged myself to create a date night look that was entirely thrifted! I am not usually a fancy date night person, but more of “take me through the Culver’s drive thru and sit and eat in the car” type of girl. Anyone else with me? No? Okay… I do love to dress up every now and then, and this outfit is perfect for that fancy night out!
I found this Jones New York dress for $8.00! I love empire waists as my bottom half is bigger than the top, so everything is hidden well. I loved the color of this dress as well! Don’t shy away from bright colors! You can pull them off! To make it modest, I layered it with a sparkly tank.
My shoes were $5.00, and in great condition! I do not walk well in high heels, so I tend to be attracted to smaller heels. I think you can either love or hate kitten heels. I happen to love them! I think they bring a soft, gentle side.
So really in total, my date night look cost $13.00! You can totally re-create this look or head to your local Goodwill or second store and create a look of your own! Think of it more of an adventure rather than letting it be a stressful situation! You don’t have to have a ton of money to look good!
Lots of love,
