Look at this typical school day outfit in the Pacific Northwest! Hurrah for fashion, right?Happy first day of Winter term, my fellow students. Happy New years as well! Hope everyone kicks off their new start in a positive way. It sounds like the majority of people on the interwebs are hoping for a better year than last, and I concur. Lots of things to look forward to and figure out in my life this year. Graduating college and everything related. LIFE.

If you have been reading my blog, you'd see that I tend to get my clothes from unconventional places. I'm not a big retail shopper. Don't get me wrong, I do love shopping, but I'm not one to go to the mall, buy new clothes and do shopping hauls. 

First of all, I am a senior in college with a budget. I've always had a budget. That budget is usually spent on rent and food, so I rarely have extra cash here and there to buy anything but the essentials in the first place. I grew up that way. My mother took me to thrift shops growing up and some years I was lucky to get new school clothes at the mall. I do remember those years I reluctantly bought my "new" jeans from goodwill because that's what we could afford. Obviously, if you are like me, you also went through that phase of not thinking it was cool to shop at thrift stores. But I'm thankful that it's something my mother introduced me to at a young age, it has become one of my favorite things to do.

I tend to wear entirely thrifted outfits. I really only own a few pieces here and there that I've bought new or were new and gifted to me. Here, I am wearing newly bought H&M high waist jeans that I wear nearly every day. I bought them at the end of the summer in New York when I just desperately needed some every day jeans. The Converse Chuck Taylor's I think were gifted to me one year to replace my old one's that I had worn to shreds. 

This plaid flannel is my boyfriends from Old Navy. Believe it or not, I am from AND I live in the NW and don't own any plaid. None. But! My partner does, and here it is. The vest was thrifted from Goodwill after I got back from NY and my airline lost all my luggage. Similar to this one. See that bag? I randomly found it in the spare bedroom at my parents house filled with garbage. What the heck?! It's a perfectly awesome green canvas and leather bag. New School bag for sure, here is something similar. Those glasses? I basically got them for free on sale at Coastal.com. They are these frames, in tortoise shell. They have crazy sales every once and a while and I scored them last spring. 

There it is, probably way more than you wanted to know about where I got the things I'm wearing. But it goes to show that it really doesn't take much to put simple outfits like this together. If you like the blog, comment, share and follow! Check out the talent behind these photos at ILLGANDER
