I recently went camping in Bend, Oregon. The scenery is killer, the people are outdoorsy and the style is envious.
And let me tell ya, thrift stores in wealthy, sporty cities are treasure troves of beautiful clothing. A lot of beautiful clothing.
So here’s a small story. For only a couple of weeks before the trip I had a (very weird) yearning for a pair of hiking sandal (like Tevas or Chacos) since summer is quickly approaching. I even asked my mom if she ever spots any at second hand stores, and her reply was simple, “no, they are too valuable”. So, when we get to Bend I see nearly everyone sporting the sandals that I so desperately want.
Now, as we’re on our way out of town, vintage travel trailer in tow, we happen to stop at a Goodwill superstore. And of you’ve ever been to one of those on a lucky day, ahhh you know it’s like you’ve entered heaven. Low and behold my sister finds me a pair of Chaco’s that look barely worn! And they’re my size! It would be easy to say that was the highlight of my trip, but we also went to beautiful places like the Painted Hills, so really the whole voyage was a blessing!
I also managed to find a little boy’s tshirt. Because what teenage girl doesn’t want to look just like a 12 year old boy?
But seriously, I see quite a lot of potential for this small shirt. I’m hoping to cut of the arms and pray I still look like a girl. hah
I picked up this simple nike workout top that looks brand new. And this pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans; something I’ve been wanting for forever (although they are missing a button).
This American Eagle peplum loose shirt isn’t too shabby either.
Aside from the Chacos, I found yet another amazing item.
Yes, I found a new Free People dress. It’s bohemian and flowy and lacy. It’s beautiful. However, I won’t be keeping it, but rather selling it because it doesn’t fit me the way I’d like and someone else would like it much more than me. If you’re interested in buying this cute number from me, here’s a link to my Vinted site where you can view it and a handful of other adorable things.
Here are a few photos that perfectly captured the beauty of central Oregon…
I hope you enjoyed my small rant filled with excitement and entirely amazing scenery. Thank you for the constant support and endless love. love you all.
