thrift with me

Neutrals, neutrals, neutrals.

It’s been quite a while since I did a thrift with me, so I figured it was about time to share with you what I have been collecting over the last few months. Besides the usual denim finds there’s been a bit of a theme going on this summer. Neutrals. All of the neutrals.

Also, english. Yup. It’s a thing now. I’ve decided to have a little re-fresh over here. Hope you like it!

Ok.

Let’s take a look at what I’ve been loving lately.

Sustainable material is on everybodys radar nowadays and is such an important thing to have in mind when updating ones closet, so of course I was over the moon with excitement when I stumbled upon this linen skirt. It has quickly become a staple in my wardrobe and I have been wearing it with everything! It wrinkles just the perfect amount, is not see-through & can easily be transitioned from day to night. And who doesn’t just love linen in the summer, am I right?

 I picked up this beauty in the beginning of the season at my local Red Cross charity shop. I’m actually thinking of writing a post specifically about that place. Their vintage section is truly heaven on earth. Keep an eye out for that!

And speaking of vintage – take a look at this gem. The hawaiian shirt of my dreams. Now I need a vacation to go with it.

When thrifting you cannot skip the book section.

I sometimes spend hours browsing the shelves, and there is almost always something that catches my eye. This time I brought home a classic – a Swedish edition of ‘The Cranks Recipe Book’ by David Canter. Cranks was a chain of English wholefood vegetarian restaurants and a big contributor in spreading vegetarianism starting in the early 1960’s.

I first heard of the restaurant about 15 years ago when I was on a health kick and came across a recipe in a magazine on how to make their famous wholemeal sandwich buns.  If I’m not mistaken, that clipping is safely stashed away in a drawer somewhere. So you see, of course I had to add this book to my collection. 

We’ve all been loving the mom jean trend for a while now, and I personally felt it was time for something else.

Everyone – meet my lady pants. Pants as in trousers that is, not underwear. 

Ok? Ok.

They’re high waisted with straight wide-ish legs, and to be honest I really didn’t care for them at all at first. The length was a bit off and they had some not so cute stitching on the back pockets. To make them fit my style I simply cuffed them and ripped out the stitches.

I love how they are sort of ugly but still looks good, especially paired with some Converse sneakers.

Yes. Old lady chic – with a twist!

And there you have it folks, some of my latest thrifted bits. It is now time to pack away the summer outfits and prepare for fall.

Are you as excited as I am?
