Recently, I went on a little thrifting escapade with the ever fabulous Ash Taylor of The Guts & Glory. I could gush about her endlessly for her styling talent, amazing hospitality, and killer sense of humor, but I'll stop short and say that this gal is great, and you should definitely check out her work.
We scoured the ARC for pieces for ourselves and shoots, and Ash spotted this primo camel coat. She tried it on, didn't think it fit her well, and then in true amazing lady fashion, suggested I try it. My picks weren't quite right, but this baby was perfect. A Calvin Klein coat for $20? Dreams do come true.
While styling a look to shoot at Bellwether with Miss Shea Hennessy, I decided to pair this coat with some of my favorite, newly acquired minimalist pieces. I got this white midi dress for a steal since it was quite late in the season, and these Madewell sandals, are officially the most comfortable heels I own. My good friend Angela brought me this mixed metal bangle back from Mexico (last year? Two?), and the seashell ring is an oldie my mom gave me.
Between thrifted pieces and gifts, so much of my style is made up of individual pieces that have been loved, thrown away, lost, or hand-selected just for me, and I am so happy about it.
