How would you describe your style? I am seriously lacking in this department. I don’t treat myself often enough to clothes that are on trend for the season but love the few pieces that I do have. If you’re like me and would love to be more ‘in’ but without spending all the dough required to get those name brands in your closet, you have to check out thredUP. They are a like-new, online consignment shop featuring over 25,000 brand names at savings of up to 90% off. Seriously LOVE this site! This week our moms have put together outfits by shopping on thredUP. Which one do you think is most YOU?
Here’s a look at our styles and we’d love to hear what you love to wear, too!
I’m a huge fan of 3 things when it comes to style. 1. It HAS to be comfortable! 2. I love classic pieces that I can use time and time again. 3. My style has to be affordable! I’m a huge fan of layering pieces together. I wasn’t so sure about skinny jeans when they came back in style. (I love my boot cut jeans!) But they have been quickly growing on me! And the colored jeans? I think they are so fun and a perfect pop of color! Moms can totally rock the colored jean trend! Read more about Amanda’s outfit below here!
My style is very casual. I love blue jeans and t-shirts. That’s what you’ll usually always find me in. However, I do love cute shoes and accessories. Those can make or break an outfit. I love namebrands but can’t always afford them, so I love to find ways to get what I want without giving away the bank! Read more about Jenni’s outfit below here!
I’ll admit fashion is not my forte but I always feel better when I think I look a little more stylin’. I’m all about comfort and practicality with my wardrobe and think accessories can go a long way to jazz up any outfit. I’m a shoe lover and hoarder and love unique, colorful styles. Add a matching handbag to really look put together and your favorite jewelry, even something simple, completes the look. I usually go for a silver watch or bracelet (or a few!) and a pair of silver earrings. I’ve got short hair so something that dangles usually looks best.
This is the outfit I put together shopping on thredUP. Everything but the jewelry came from thredUP! And check out the savings:

I’m all about easy styles that I can pull together quickly. I try to stick with items that I can mix and match so I have lots of outfit options. I’m excited for brighter colors this spring after a long winter! Read more about Stephanie’s outfit below here!
