Happy FRIDAY mamas! And welcome to the first Thrifty Chic Mama Express fashion post! First of all a HUGE shoutout to my own mama for her mad photography skills, thanks to her I have photos to feature in this post!
Today I’m going to share a simple fall look I gathered from the thrift store as well as a super easy daytime fall makeup look. My goal is to help you build a very affordable and versatile collection of clothing and makeup items that you can use a myriad of different ways. I will give you a list of items to search for with every outfit I’m calling it the Thrift Map, and a list of makeup items I’ll call the Beauty Map. We will reuse items very frequently! (But we will be the only ones who know that!) For your ease of use, I will provide a Thrift Map and Beauty Map for every single outfit/look, of course if you already own any of those items from before or a previous Thrifty Chic outfit, no need to purchase again! (Unless you want to, and especially since we are thrifting here, go for it!) And, one of the wonderful things about thrifting is, you can be completely on trend while simultaneously having a personalized one of a kind outfit.
One of my favorite aspects of fall clothing is the layers! Ahhhh the wonderful cozy layers! This outfit was super easy to piece together and I am excited to show you in the coming weeks how many different ways we can use the pieces!
(Pro tip: screen shot this list for easy access at the thrift store!)
-Comfy, light colored straight leg stretch jeans (it took me a couple trips to find my perfect pair, don’t despair if you don’t see your dream jeans the first trip!) Stay away from bootlegs and jeans with no pockets, those are often yuck on the butt! Make sure you get them long enough!
-White or light colored tank top, long (simply size up for an easy longer style!)
-Light colored, long sleeved over sized scoop neck t shirt (I went up two sizes for this one, if you wear a small, go large!)
-over sized dark colored cotton jacket (hint: if you’re having trouble finding this style of jacket, go to the men’s section and size down one!)
-multi colored large cotton or linen scarf (try to find one that has a small bit of the t shirt color you chose in it!)
-tall black boots. There are always gads of these in thrift shops! Pick comfortable ones!
Pair with this under ten minute fall makeup look and you’re ready to grab coffee or groceries in confidence, (or even an impromptu glass of wine!)
(PS..the video is slightly longer than ten minutes due to me explaining everything, fear not, this look will take you under ten minutes to complete!)
