Truth Time: I love shopping! Like, a little too much, according to my husband. I am guilty of spending a little too much money on items from higher end stores but also dropping serious dough in stores that aren’t as costly. I just can’t say no to a good deal or a cute item that I feel I need to have in my life! Enter ThredUP, this is an amazing AND budget friendly secondhand website that is offering deals for both moms and minis!

Mama & Mini Style on a Budget

My shopping addiction knows no bounds in regards to my children. I love finding unique items for my kids or paying a little extra for something of great quality that I think may last them a few seasons. Shopping is just something I love to do and like many women I don’t think it is going to change any time soon!

One thing I have always loved is second hand shopping. I have found unique pieces for our home & clothes for our entire family from garage sales, second hand shops, and Craigslist. Some of my most beloved items have come gently used! This is why I was so excited to work with ThredUP, which basically combines my love of online shopping and second hand scores.

ThredUP has looks for both mama and the little ones, which I love. They even let you sell your gently used items which is great for me because I am always trying to clean out my closet as well as my kids closet. Their homepage features deals as low as under $10! You can find anything from maternity items to jewelry to handbags and shoes on ThredUP. One of my favorite categories that they offer is their designer deals. Who doesn’t want to score designer and name brand items at a DEEP discount? I scored a gorgeous Free People shawl for less than $30!

I recently was able to scoop some items up from ThredUP and let me just say, I was SO impressed by the quality. Sometimes when you by second hand you may question the overall appearance of the item, everything I got from ThredUP was exactly as described and looked brand new. It also came adorably packaged and had the “ThredUP” tag on it so you know it was checked for overall quality. I grabbed over $300 (retail price) in items for less than $150. Here’s a look at some of my awesome haul!

It is no secret that I am yoga obsessed. I was thrilled to find that ThredUP offered budget friendly secondhand LuLulemon. I am so obsessed with these turquoise capri length pants I found and they fit perfectly. I also scooped up a fun bright pink Fila top to complete the workout look. I am pretty sure I will live in this look all summer during the warmer months!  You can shop their current selection of active pants here & active tops here!

Another look I want to share with you is one I am hoping to carry over to this spring and it incorporates my love of neutrals and stripes!

How adorable is this Baby Gap dress I scored for Marley this summer?! For the kids I went looking for some bigger sizes that I want them to wear this spring/summer and this fit the bill perfectly. This dress could work this spring with some cute flats and a jean jacket. ThredUP’s girl department had so many adorable options for the little ladies!

Another cute find for Marley was this swim suit cover up by Hanna Anderson. I had such a hard time finding a cute coverup for her last summer so I was thrilled to find an option that I LOVE at a deep discount in ThredUP’s girl department.

I am also loving ThredUP’s boys department. It can be hard finding cute and stylish toddler and baby outfits for little boys but I was so impressed with the selection that ThredUP offers. I snagged a cute school shirt for Kellan and a new t-shirt for this spring and summer. Also, am I the only one losing my kid’s gloves on the regular? When I saw that ThredUP had a section for kid’s accessories I knew I had to grab an extra pair for the kids. We are always misplacing one (kind of like socks). You can never have too many pairs of gloves!

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is already next week! Christmas and the holidays will be here before we know it and then 2018, it’s basically March 😂

I’ve teamed up with PinkBlush to share two outfit ideas with you for Thanksgiving. Now, if you celebrate like my family then you keep it low key, casual and comfortable. Many celebrate with bigger more formal gatherings. I have attended such gatherings and they can be a blast too!

Let’s start with the more dressy look

This off the shoulder top is so cute. I loved that the material was soft enough that I didn’t feel uncomfortable in it. I really think this is the perfect fall top, the colors scream fall! The bell sleeves add a little something extra and unexpected. I paired this look with dark jeans and tall dark boots. I also added a cute hat for a little twist!

The next look is a little more comfortable, possibly for a smaller family gathering

This cardigan can be worn so many ways which is one reason why I love it! You can wear it open and draped, the fringe is such a pretty detail. You also have the option to button one or both sides for a more closed off look.

You really can’t go wrong with either of these options! PinkBlush uses such great quality fabric for their products which is always key when choosing a great outfit! Hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving🍁

Bloopers are fun too 😂
