as a preschool teacher, my shopping budget is
rather meager these days.
however, my love for shopping and styling outfits
to share with you remains strong!
how do i justify my shopping, while strategically sticking to a budget?
thrifting, of course!

i have shared my love for thrifting frequently on this little blog.
thrifting is a great way to find unique pieces -
pieces to treasure for your closet or home.
seattle goodwill is my favorite thrifting destination! 
i pass by the south lake union location on my drive home,
and am slightly embarrassed to admit how often i stop in (at least once a week?!).

goodwill strives to better their community,
provide opportunities and job training to those in need, and 
'help people reach their full potential through learning 
and the power of work.'

i am thrilled to collaborate with and support seattle goodwill on this blog!
i recently had the pleasure of meeting ms. katherine,
communications manager of seattle goodwill.
we share a love for thrifting, styling new and previously owned pieces,
and enjoying delicious lemonade on a summer day.
katherine was kind enough to provide me with a gift card to goodwill
in order to create a few 'summer looks' to share on this little blog.
i had a blast scouring the racks and selecting a few items
to post here. thank you again, katherine!

be sure to check out my second look, coming soon!
to learn more about the mission of goodwill, or to find a location
near you, visit their website here.
