Although yesterday may have been the first day of spring, Florida’s weather is spring…ISH. It’s not freezing where I need a winter coat. So what’s the perfect staple piece for chilly spring days? Blazers, duh! It’s the perfect layering piece. My favorite spring blazer look is when paired with jeans and a t-shirt. Or a blouse if you work in a business casual corporate setting like me.

Every time I go thrifting, my first stop is the blazer section. Both women and men (for thrifting tips, click here). Out of all the blazers I’ve gotten, this one is by far my favorite. The fit is perfect, no need for a tailor. Plus I’m obsessed with color and houndstooth plaid print! The color also works for any season.

One my weekly Target run, I always visit the clearance area. They had a plethora of shoes up to 50% off! I shop on a budget, so that made it hard to choose one or two pair (insert crying emoji). On my Instagram stories I did a poll asking my IG friends to help me decide on a pair. These block heel mules won by a landslide! To join in the fun, make sure you’re following me on Instagram to get in on my random shopping trips.

I love nice things, but I’m a frugal foxx to the core! I’m the one who goes through the store with a cart full of things and by the time I get to checkout I’m putting everything back. To my defense, I’m a single mom so I have to make these coins stretch! That’s why I thrift! Below ares 8 ways to thrift effectively so you can slay on a budget!
Would you believe me if I told you this outfit cost me less than twenty bucks?! Well, minus the booties and earrings. Point is, you can look put together without spending a lot of money. How? Thrifting duh! I scored this entire look from the Goodwill! Not in one trip, but over the course of three trips over the past couple months. Good quality pieces too (deets on my new favorite top below)!
I’m sure you noticed by now I’m OBSESSED with Target! I mean what mom isn’t?! They launched a new line called Wild Fable August 3, 2018 and I cannot get enough! Its super affordable (everything less than $40), on trend, and goes up to a size 26W! EVERYTHING!
Fall doesn’t start until September 22nd, but since the kiddos are back in school it’s time to transition. Fall is my favorite season; however, Florida never truly gets a Fall season. Our winter feels like a traditional fall lol.
