I cannot believe it is almost September. Seriously, where did the summer go?? While I know it is going to stay hot around here for a (long) while, I couldn’t help getting into the fall spirit just a bit for today’s Thrift Style Thursday. Our theme this week is “Geometric Prints” brought to us by one of our newer members, Alison of Nouveau North Westerners!
This theme was actually a bit of a challenge for me at first when I realized that I have almost zero geometric prints in my wardrobe… Until I remembered this awesome aztex/geometric print wool coat I thrifted last winter. I was on a serious coat search because I realized I like very few of my winter jackets. Luckily, I happened to find this one while browsing a thrift store in San Diego on a little anniversary trip with Derek.
I originally bought this coat thinking that I would refashion it in some way because I absolutely fell in love with the beautiful material. But, after wearing it with this fall preview outfit, I think I’ve decided to simply tailor it a bit for a better fit instead.
The details: wool coat (thrifted) // purple slub tank top (H&M) // orange suede skirt (Forever 21 via Salvation Army) // canvas booties (O’Niell via Ross) // turquoise belt (hand-me-down) // layered necklaces (gift, handmade) // leaf ring (AE) // knuckle rings (handmade) // bracelets (old)
I have to admit that this coat lasted about all of fifteen minutes before I started to, uh, glisten. A wool coat might be a bit much for the end of summer, but I cannot wait for it to get cool enough to actually wear it!! What are you most looking forward to wearing this fall??
Don’t forget the rest of the Thrift Style Thursday gals to see how they’re styling their geometric prints this week!
As always, thanks for reading! :)
