Hello, Monday.. hope you all had a lovely weekend like I did! On Saturday we went to see Widespread Panic in concert. If you're interested you can see more about that on the blog I write for my family members, here

Onto the hats.

I have a new system for thrifting I want to share with you. People ask me all the time how I score so many great finds while thrifting. It's simple - thrift often. In order to do this, I instituted a new system. You know how you don't always have time to spend an hour+ browsing every aisle for hidden gems? Sometimes you just need to get in, find what you need, and get out. There is usually something specific I'm looking for (sometimes it's an ongoing search, like the cowboy boots I talk about a lot).

 Instead of just not thrifting during busy weeks, I give myself a 15 minute time limit in thrift stores that are on my way to or from appointments. Last week: operation hats. I gave myself 15 minutes to run in, check out the hat section (and a quick glance at the shoes for the above mentioned boots). It was hard not to spend my usual hour browsing around the other aisles, but we all agree that's not always in the cards time-wise. Plus, on these quick trips I'm without my thrifting buddy, so browsing isn't nearly as fun.

No boots (as usual), but I found 6 hats!

Yellow and Green tags were half off, so total I spent $3.60. The blue one is for the husband.. you can see him modeling this hat and some sunglasses I scored for him here, haha :)

Next time.. operation: work heels.

Have a great Monday,


  1. what! you can;t even get one hat for $3.60 normally...go you :) love the pink one!

  2. Super cute, I look like a boy in hats.. I don't know what it is, I can wear big 'ole hoop earrings and I still look like a boy! Uggh Nice finds!

  3. That's a wonderful method. I must try this out.

  4. Can I submit my picture from a couple weeks ago? Haha why am I so terrible at "Wear It Wednesdays"?

  5. It can be from any time! I'm going to add that to the post to avoid confusion :)

  6. what a great method! I am definately going to try this... perhaps this week! I need some great vintage skirts!!


  7. Limiting your time thrifting when you're looking for something specific is a great idea. I'm crazy about those moccasins!


Thanks for stopping by! Your comments make my day ♥
