Fly on a Dime – Mothers’s Day Edition
If you are anything like me, you plan your outfit’s in advance of major holidays and events; heck even catastrophes. (As I type this, I am planning my outfit for the zombie apocalypse! The slayage has to be real at ALL moments…hahaha)
But seriously, if there was one event that gets me the most excited, it’s hands down Mother’s Day! This time of the year spring is in full effect, which means great weather, bottomless mimosas, brunches, flowers, parties, gifts…..and the perfect “fly fit” for the day! As a mom, having the perfect look can really make you feel and look great for your, or your Mom’s, special day.
The best part is you don’t have to spend a fortune. Listen, you can be the belle of the ball for under $40! Who doesn’t want that? I know I do!
Mother’s Day Thrifting
You can find some amazing, fly pieces for a fraction of the price. All it takes is some comfortable walking shoes, insight on good spots to source, and an open mind. Not convinced yet, here are a few good reasons to consider thrifting:
- Saves Money – Thrifted clothing is far more affordable than new clothes of like quality.
- Unique Pieces – It’s highly unlikely that anyone else is walking around in the same clothes as you!
- Creative Outlet – You might be inspired to try a new look or DIY inspiration!
- It’s “Green” – You are literally saving clothing from landfills, which increases the life cycle of the clothing and decreases manufacturing demands on new clothes that will most likely go to waste.
