The jean shirt I thrifted from the Salvation Army Thrift store is the most used item in my closet this fall. The best thing about a jean shirt is that you can wear it on it’s own, layer it with a jacket and scarf, throw a sweater on over top, all combinations work and looked pulled together! This jean shirt is made by Zara and the reason I really liked it was because it is slightly fitted. Being a more fitted jean shirt really works for layering, by not creating such a bulky look.
The jean shirt is also easy to dress up or down depending on what you are doing. The other week I layered this thrifted jean shirt with a more stylish sweater and green jacket. Creating a great weekend brunch outfit. This week I am pairing the jean shirt with coloured jeans and a thrifted Roots sweater. The wool sweater is a great alternative to a jacket during these warmer fall months as you won’t get cold.
What am I getting at here? The only item you need to thrift this fall is a JEAN SHIRT. If you have sweaters in your closet you are not excited about, add a jean shirt under one and see it instantly transform. I have been to the Salvation Army Thrift Store by my house a few times this fall and on all occasions seen jean shirts in the blouse section. Sometimes the jean shirts can be in different sections depending on the store, so make sure to look around.

I know what you are thinking, whoa Tijana this is one of your most expensive outfits! Let’s look at the items though, if we take away the shoes it only cost $51.96. I recently did an article with the North Shore News and the woman couldn’t believe I splurged on a nice haircut, but was diligent on other budgeting pieces. I’m frugal so I can live my best life on a budget, this doesn’t mean denying myself a nice haircut or comfortable shoes. These leather shoes from Frank + Oak are almost three years old, beautifully worn in and still in great shape. There are certain areas where I invest like my skincare, hair, and shoes, you know, the important stuff!
What do you invest in? Let me know in the comments? I am always curious what is non-negotiable for people! Happy fall!
