With spring slowly approaching, I had to make a trip to my local thrift store to get some essentials. I was able to snag 3 staple pieces that I’ll be wearing a lot this spring.
< FIND #1: Varsity Jacket
The first item is this vintage jacket. The colours are very vibrant for spring and the materials are just enough to keep me warm come springtime.
FIND #2: Lacoste Cardigan >
The next item is this vintage Izod Lacoste cardigan. I’ve had these Izod Lacoste sweaters on my thrift list for a while. I am so happy to have found one for a decent price too. I can’t wait to add more to my cardigan collection.
< FIND #3: Bootleg Nike Tee
Last but not least is this bootleg Nike T-shirt. I suspect it’s a bootleg because of the tags and texture of the material. I got this because of the fade, feel and cracking of the print on the T-shirt. However, this doesn’t takeaway from the piece at all and was definitely a great find!
When shopping for pieces to add to your spring wardrobe, gravitating towards pieces that are colourful, breathable, and of course comfortable are always a great idea. With that being said, catch you on the next blogpost and happy thrifting!
