There is (almost) nothing better than oversized sweatshirts when the weather outside is frightfully chilly, and one of my favorite places to find unique sweatshirts is thrift and consignment shops. *gasp* SAY WHAT?! Yes–that’s right! You wouldn’t believe how many awesome sweatshirts I have found at various thrift stores in my life. In fact, MY FAVORITE sweatshirt ever came from a thrift store in Starkville, Mississippi for $1…ONE DOLLAR! 

Now, to celebrate the dreadfully crazy winter storm that is headed this way, let’s warm up with three ways to wear thrifted sweatshirts + some epic throwbacks *wink*

Living on the wild side! *wink*

Now, as I snack on these delicious banana chips from Earth Fare, let’s take a look at the snazzy outfit details.

Weekly Whistle: Overly with Obsessed Overalls

IMG_2019

Hello, hello, hello, fabulouses! I am embracing my inner 90’s child on the blog today with my crazy obsession with overalls. Is the obsession merely a flashback to when my mom would dress me in anything and all things denim, or is it because of the excessive amount of Third Eye Blind I have been listening to lately….hmm…As I ponder this thought and hunt down the baby pictures of me in my kickin’ overall shorts, y’all enjoy this week’s fabulous Weekly Whistle!

No…I have had no luck in finding the baby pictures of my rockin’ overalls like a true 90s kid…but I SHALL FIND THOSE PICTURES! *thrusts fist into the air*

Now, I am going to go snack on delicious Swedish Fish and flip through scrapbooks in search of the overall shorts baby pictures…they have to be somewhere…Where is momma to find you something when you need it….”MOM! CAN YOU COME HELP ME…”
