A Secondhand Shopping Challenge and ThredUp Haul

I mentioned in my last style post that I've been in a bit of a style rut, and that I'd been thinking about embarking on a challenge of some sort. Since I've also been wanting to shop more ethically, I decided that for the next 6 months, I'm going to challenge myself to only shop secondhand for clothing, shoes, and accessories.

I started my challenge at the beginning of the month, and since I had a little credit to ThredUp (plus a 20% off promotion going on), I decided to kick it off with a little secondhand haul. I love a good shopping review post, and even though you can't necessarily buy these exact items, I still thought it would be fun to share my ThredUp box with you. 

Talbots plaid scarf - $12.80. I have a couple of plaid blanket scarves that I wear a lot in the fall, and I love the pretty jewel tones in this one. It's also a little smaller than the ones I have so it will be more versatile on days it's cool but not freezing cold. 

J.Crew denim skirt - $18.36. This skirt is what got me started on this little shopping extravaganza. I've been on the hunt for a denim skirt for quite some time, but I hadn't found exactly what I wanted until I saw this one. I love the button-up style and the dark denim color--it will be perfect for fall and pretty much all year round. 

Loft navy print blouse - $16.80. I seem to have a thing for navy blue print blouses, as I already have a few, but I love the subtle but unique ruffled sleeves of this one. I'm all about easy outfit formulas these days, and one of my favorites is jeans with a pretty print top. It's no more work to put on than a tee shirt, but it feels a little more special.

Banana Republic lace top - $16.00. A lace tee is something else I've been wanting in my closet. I like the idea of a dressy fabric done in a casual way. However, this one isn't quite right. It's too fitted for my taste and I don't think it's very flattering on me. This one will be going back, and I'll hold on to the store credit for next time. 

Loft long sleeve yellow blouse - $ 19.20. One thing I think Loft does really well is blouses, and I remember seeing one like this on a few bloggers and really liking it. I never used to like yellow on me, but it's grown on me in recent years. It really feels like fall!
