Thrift Style Thursday – Back to School

This week’s theme is brought to you by yours truly for Thrift Style Thursday.  We did this theme last year too, but I thought it would be fun to do it again.  I know in most states that kids have already been back in school for a couple of weeks already, but here in Minnesota, most of our kids started on Tuesday of this week.  We’ve just always gone back after Labor Day – I think partly because of the State Fair!  Anyway, I thought it would be fun to pull together a look that is reminiscent of something I’d wear on the first day of school.  Last year I even put up a bunch of first day of school pictures for fun too – check out that post on the old blog over here if you want a laugh.  Now on to my look for today!


When I think of school days, I immediately think of plaid.  I always wore a skirt or dress on the first day of school too, so I also thought of a skirt.  I had this one paired with a sweater that just wasn’t working right for me, so Nate helped me out and suggested this denim jacket.  I think it looks great and also kind of edgy with the boots – it’s cool and drizzly today, so I decided to give my boots some love early this year.  Usually I wait until October to pull out the boots if I can help it!


I also thought my How Does She Do It bag from Stella and Dot is a great messenger style bag that would be a great school bag if I was still in school.  I do often use it to tote my laptop to and from work, does that count?


Jacket – Old Navy (thrifted), Skirt – LOFT (thrifted)

Boots – Target, Bag – Stella and Dot (from friend)


So there you go!  I wouldn’t go back to school for anything if we’re being honest.  I recently had to do some logic tests and things for a work thing and I was like, whoa.  I have been out of school a very long time!  Thankfully we have a few years before Ollie is in school and dealing with homework, mama isn’t ready for that!

  1. I absolutely love this look for back to school! That adorable plaid skirt is perfect and I am dying with jealousy (and heat exhaustion) at the sight of you in your super cute jean jacket and boots!!! Ugh, the first week of school in California is always the hottest! Here's hoping for cooler weather soon! 😉

  2. Our back to school days just keep getting earlier and earlier in the year. We've been back in school for weeks now. But I think that all schools should start after Labor Day! I love this combo so much! The skirt is too cute! Thanks for baring with me while I figure out the new job and commenting–I do see your blog everyday even if I don't have time to comment.

  3. I love this look, it's classic back to school! I agree, I always associate back to school with plaid too 🙂 I like the denim jacket with that skirt too–nice pick Nate!
