Over the last few weeks, I’ve turned up my Frugal Fashionista purchases, but have only shared them on Instagram and Facebook, so when Jergens asked me to share some of the spring outfits I’m most excited about wearing, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to show you what I’ve found at my local thrift stores.

Last week, I was fairly certain that spring would never show it’s pretty little face, but then the sun popped out on Sunday.ย  Feeling awfully sporty with my new $5 polka dotted dress, I paired it with my Tanger Outlet statement necklace and turquoise earrings for a comfy look that I love.

One of the questions I get asked most frequently isย  something along the lines of “I never find anything good at our thrift stores. How do you have time to find hidden gems amidst all the hundreds of clothing pieces that don’t work?”

Well, my strategy for this past month lines up with myย  Frugal Fashionista post: Zebras, Stripes and Dots, Oh My, but you’ll have to watch my video below to hear some of my tips. Plus, you’ll get to see a few additional pieces that I scored during my Polka Dots and Stripes Fashion Haul.

It got a bit chilly, so I threw on a brand new Nordstrom’s Jacket (with tags) that I scored for $5.

A white jacket and white cardigan sweater were two of the items that I had been searching for this month, so it was great to get this crossed off my list.

Both of these shoes are adorable, but it’s always fun to see how different styles can really change up the look of an outfit.

I don’t know if I am alone, but my poor legs and arms had gotten quite pasty over the winter, so this last month I decided to try Jergen’s Natural Glow moisturizer. Unlike a lot of their counter parts, I was pleased to find out it’s given me a very subtle, healthy glow which has been great in sporting my new spring dress.

(I hate mirror pics, but it’s the only one I have showing the belt.)

When I purchased this dress, it was missing its belt, so I used one that I already owned. Both a black and a white belt look really cute with it, but it would be interesting to know what it originally came with. Any guesses? Most likely a thin, black belt?

I just knew I was onto something with my Polka Dot Fashion Haul theme (watch the video) when I saw my sweet friend, Edie, sporting her own polka dot summer dress. Yes, we know our fashion trends. ๐Ÿ™‚

And for those of you wanting to see the necklace from the video up close, this was another Tanger Outlet Clearance steal.

You might want to sit down for this reveal.

These fun finds were only $2/piece at Rue 21.

I know, I know. The cries of injustice are echoing through my screen.

Remember my “Whose laughing now” story?

Yep, both the bracelet and the necklace were part of that accessories haul.ย  It’s amazing to me just how much a great necklace can dress up a simple white t-shirt, and because of that, I honestly am of the mindset that investing in these pieces is worth it. It can radically change your outfits by using core wardrobe pieces you already own.

But if I can get one for $2, then who I am to resist? That just means I have a bit more in my budget to allocate towards other treasures.

What fun fashion finds are you on the hunt for this spring? Are you up for trying something new?
