Remember my last outfit post when I went talked about outfits I’m most comfortable, confident, and happy in? Yeah, this is one of them. I crafted it without any inspiration from other blogs or pinterest. Something I like to take advantage of in order to maximize the versatility of a piece is layering. This is actually a dress from H&M, but I wore it as a skirt. However the skirt is actually too short for my taste and I layered another black skirt underneath to make it appear longer! What’s that? You can’t tell? Good- but it’s a nice trick to keep in mind! Skirt extenders do exist, even if they’re makeshift ones! 
Also, this jean jacket is from way long agoโ€ฆ but it’s one of the first pieces of clothing that I ever thrifted. You can imagine how proud I was- it cost me a whole $4. What was your first thrift find?! Do you still wear it?!

As always, thank you for reading!
