Today is my first day in Germany and it’s also Thursday, so another theme from Thrift Style Thursday, this time the host is the Delightful Kristi with the theme Color Pop.
I prepared this post last week for this week’s theme, so the pictures were taken in Morocco.
I used the handy trick, to have a pop of color in accessories.
A red scarf and red leg warmers, with a black sweater, dark gray leggings and black combat boots. The whole is thrifted except the sweater which is my brother’s.
The scarf is one of my latest finds, it’s really warm and the print on it is a subtel coloreful geometric pattern, it comes off as red but it’s a great mixture of orange reds and pinks.
I think that even a hint of color can brighten up your day, especially in the gray weather. What’s your favorite way to add color to your outfit?
Don’t forget to check out the other thrifters for more looks. XOXO
I’m leaving for Germany tomorrow, so it’s my last day here.
I had a walk around town and taught I’d share my outfit with you guys.
The snood was hand made by mom (thank you mommy I wish i could knit like you !)
The leather jacket is from a local leather shop in Rabat.
As for the chambray shirt I got it from the thrift market in Agadir, dirt cheap!
The pants are thrifted too just basic black pants nothing special about them aside from the fact that I wear them a lot and that they fit perfectly.
It’s the first time I leave the country, and I’m going to be gone for a long time, it’s a weird feeling, nostalgic already because I know I’m going to miss everyone that I’m leaving behind, excited because it’s a new beginning and, finally, I get to be with my husband, I miss him more than I’d like to admit, nervous because with beginning comes unknown and that usually brings fear.
This weeks theme at Thrift Style Thursday is Pinspired New year, this is a great theme Idea and I have to thank Adrea for it , Pinterest has been an undeniably big part of my life recently, an endless drive of inspiration, to me and to many others. I’m a very visual person I tend to remember colors images and shapes, so when I discovered pinterest some years ago it was the perfect platform for me.
And talking about color I have a board
where I pin all color combos that I like or any image that inspires either outfits or decor or even DIY color projects .
For this weeks theme I reached for that board and I had this beautiful pin
of hot pink and navy combo just staring at me and the perfect outfit to portray it.
You know that problem we always have : nothing to wear but no place in your closet, I always end up putting myself in this position, I’m a hardcore thrifter I literally can’t say no to a good piece of clothing, and I thrift for such a long time that I have huge amounts of clothes, and I buy of everything ; if I find it cool, pretty trippy … anything goes as long as it’s interesting ! But unfortunately one can only wear a certain amount of clothes everyday; this is why I have these two wardrobe resolutions:
- Le ménage par le vide :(hahaha Google translation gave me household vacuum :P) but really what it means is just that I’m going to clean by emptying -> give away some of my clothes, I need this because I’m moving to Germany in February and I’ll be restricted in weight big time so I need to sort out my wardrobe and give away some of my dear clothes (tears) I’m also going to try this concept here that seems really interesting I’ll tell you guys how it goes.
- Experiment more styles: I said I thrift of everything and this includes styles that are not really mine. This today for example isn’t something I would usually wear so I’m glad I’m participating it TST, now that I know I can pull it off, I’m more keen to experiment and get out of my comfort zone, and finally pull out those old pieces that I never brought myself to wear.
Polka dot dress thrifted it’s actually 2 size bigger than me.
Pink sweater thrifted ( found in the kid section).
Chunky necklace down town Rabat.
Nude flats from the old Medina of Rabat, the local crafts men do wonders with leather.
So yeah this was my outfit how do you like it ? don’t forget to check out the other 9 members of the team, I bet they came up with some amazing thrifted outfits.
I went to the woods sometime ago, the weather was so nice I felt kind of nostalgic looking back at the pictures, and I taught I would share the green pictures and my outfit with you guys .
As usual nearly everything was thrifted .
My trusty brown ankle boot, that I am wearing a lot lately !
Blue jeans, thrifted them from Agadir and they fit perfectly, it’s actually quite hard to find a good pair of jeans that fit, it was a great deal.
Chunky sweater, thrifted.
Military like trench jacket, thrifted.
As a simple accessory I wore my New-Zealand hook, it was a birthday gift from my husband. My very first birthday of us together, he hand carved it himself back when he was in New-Zealand on blue jade.
It’s really dear to me, when he gave it to me he said that it was supposed to bring him home, so I’m holding on to it like a treasure.
How do you like my outfit? Are you just like me missing spring and sunshine ?
My next post will be on Thursday with Thrift Style Thursday, and the theme is really exciting “Pinspired New Year”, so see you then .
Last week I discovered This blog and the Thrift Style Thursday community , they were really warm ,welcoming and they invited me to participate every Thursday and share one of my thrifted outfits.
What’s really exciting about it is that there is a new theme every week, so every week you can expect a fun outfit from all 10 participants. This week’s theme is Sweater weather.
I was excited all week-long, and I came up with this outfit, something I would wear kind of everyday in chilly weather.
The sweater is thrifted, along with the boots (the same as my last outfit)
I added a long tank top underneath to add a little bit of length, it was from a friend back when I was in university. I got the leggings from mom, not sure where she got them from though. As for the bag it’s my last find at the thrift shop close to my place, I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this one a lot.
Since it’s chilly I decided I would throw on my new thrifted scarf.
I hope you like it and don’t forget to check out these lovely ladies.
the idea behind this section of my blog is to show my thrifted finds and how I would wear them.
Today it’s this pretty turtleneck dress, it’s a thick knit that can keep me warm in this fresh weather, I say winter but I am well aware that I would freeze if I wear this in proper winter, Morocco has a kinder one so I am enjoying it while I can.
I named this outfit winter flowers because the dress has a pattern of tiny little pink flowers, the pattern is soft enough that it melts with the solid brown of the background, making it somewhat tamed but still fun.
I paired it with a chunky sweater that I got from down town Rabat and brown ankle boots that I got from Sales thrift market.
As for the arm candy it was a gift from my sweet husband.
It was a sunny day so I felt adventurous enough to go out with bare legs else I would have added some tights.
I hope you like it.
