On the Cheap


  (dress: thrifted, tights: Target, necklace: NastyGal, boots: F21)

So I have been wanting to break this dress out for awhile but just haven't gotten around to it.  It was a thrift store find and I got it for 5 dollars!  Thrifting can definitely be time consuming and even frustrating at times, but when you find those pieces mixed in there that are amazing and super cheap it is totally worth it!  I also got this really long crochet dress for even less that I will break out at some point!

In other news, me and my bf are trying to kick start some healthy changes by trying to eat really clean for the next 30 days.  I have to admit that I have not been very healthy as of late, and it is something I constantly struggle with.  I know what is best for me to do but it can be so hard to stay motivated sometimes!  So we are trying to cut out things like caffeine, sugar, and meat and hoping that if we stick to it it will start to become habit to eat healthier in our every day lives.  Wish us luck!

 P.S.  I would love it if you could check out/follow  some of my other sites: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram I would really appreciate it!!

  12. That is a great thrift find! I can't believe you found that beauty for $5! I love thrifting too, but agree you can feel very defeated if you don't find anything good.

  64. I hear you. I've been working out lately and next to it is eating healthy. Also, thrifting is not for everyone. I mean, it takes a lot of patience. Buckets and buckets of it. Finding a really great piece of clothing is truly rewarding though.

    Cheers to us!
