We are full force into the fall season these days, which I am loving. The trees look amazing, the pumpkin flavored food tastes delicious and the chilly air mixed in with the warm sun feels wonderful. Did you catch that? I love fall!
As with every season, there are a few key items that seem to get the most amount of wear. For me, this green jacket has been an item of choice this fall.
So when I found this jacket for $4.59 at a local GCF, I knew I had to snag it. Originally from Gap, it’s been a great piece to layer with one of my many favorite scarves.
Pair it with some jeans and boots (look familiar?) and you’re good to go. Those jeans? Yep, those were thrifted too. But today we’re just talking about the green jacket.
Since moving to North Carolina, we appreciate soaking up all of the lovely fall moments a little longer as fall seems to last from September to December. To some that may seem typical, but in colder areas of the country, fall sometimes only lasts about a month before it gets cold again.
As much as I love thrifting, it has its challenges. Finding decent clothes for guys, especially tall and skinny (good-looking) guys is one of them. But I keep my eye out when I possible and some spots are better than others. On our trip to Portland this past spring, we knew we were in the midst of some awesome thrifting.
The hubby found this green sweater jacket, originally from Banana Republic, for $18 and wears it every chance he gets.
Added bonus? Now we can
accidentally match in our thrifted green jackets.
