dress pants + thrift sisters link up

Thrift Sisters Link Up - dress pants.  Thrifting Diva Welcome back to the Thrift Sisters Link Up!  This week, Keren of Two Stylish Kays and I are styling dress pants.  Please check out this her awesome look on her blog as she styles her checkered dress pants.  I opted a very casual pants for the styling.  When she and I decided to showcase dress pants, I realized I didn’t really own a lot of true dress pants.  I wear a military uniform everyday for work, and really don’t own that many work dress pants.  However, who says that dress pants must only be conservative.  Besides, I dress conservative five days a week, so why not be able to step out on the weekends.

Thrifting Diva I know everyone is drooling over the fall weather around the country.  However, in sunny San Diego, we are actually going through a heat wave, with temperatures running in the 90’s these days.  Thus, I am featuring this very “summery” outfit this week.  I found these super funky blue and white H&M pants at AMVETS here in San Diego for only $2.00.  I love the color, the pattern, and the tapering at the bottom.

    • I used to come home with way too much stuff from the thrift sroets and always ended up with garbage bags of things to take right back. Well, I still do! But I know what you mean . . I love that the things you find are always perfectly your style.

    • That lace dress is gorgeous! I was at a viatnge dress sale on Friday and there were many similar lace dresses from the same era but I can’t afford to spend $150 on a dress right now *sigh* I’ll just live vicariously through you hah.

  28. That top is awesome! I love the back!!

  29. The process of ridding a teen of senioritis is slow, excruciating, and difficult. It’s a virus so antibiotics and medication are worthless. It is insidious, attacking other seniors; homework is late, projects slip, late nights, and chores not done.

  30. You can make white wine more like red by letting the skins steep awhile before removing them and adding more alcohol, which increases polyphenol extraction, but most white wine is far lower in polyphenols. That’s okay—”lower” isn’t zero and the alcohol itself has some benefit in low doses—and shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying white wine. If you want to try a red-esque white, go for something like this “skin ferment” Roussanne.
