Happy Birthday Blog!

I started my blog right around Thanksgiving last year but my first outfit post was one year ago today! I thought I would do a little round up of my favorite outfits. I'm going to get a bit sappy and say how great it has been over the last year. I'm so happy to have met wonderful people, new friends and being able to share my stories with all of you. It still surprises me that people actually read this! I'm also thankful for the community of people. My style has grown so much over the past year due to the fact that I get compliments and confidence from all of you. Plus, being able to see your outfits and get inspiration from other bloggers has been huge. I am so much more creative and comfortable because of your support. Here's to you and to another great year!

My first time pattern mixing! Also my first EBEW post!

I think this is one of my favorite pictures I've taken. Love this outfit too!

I've worn this same outfit multiple times since then. Don't be surprised if you see it again!

I love this dress so much. Stripes, green, 50's shape. What's not to love?

Another outfit I always come back to because I feel so comfortable in it!

  1. Happy blog-o-versary!  I have been enjoying following your blog, it's nice to see other MN gals out there!  My favorite picture is your vintage plaid dress - it is so cute and you look great in it!

  2. Happy Birthday Babes In Thriftland! You know what...I still need to try out that shorts and tights look.  I don't know what I'm waiting for! And that plaid dress really is the cutest ever.

  3. Thanks! The shorts and tights were a very scary leap but I think the key for me was to find a flattering pair of shorts and just do it!

  4. I know, I love that dress. Thanks for the well wishes and hopefully we can meet sometime!

  5. First, you just keep getting cuter. Really. And, I can't wait to see the shortened pelican skirt (obviously). I hope I get to see you before the swap, but if I don't, I hope you have an amzing new year, girl. xoxo
