WIWW - thrift store finds

Are you getting tired of seeing the same old things here on What I Wore Wednesday?  Well this week I'm mixing it up because I found a couple of different things at a couple of different thrift stores.  

But before I get to that, speaking of seeing the same ole things, I feel like I need to wear my denim shirt a different way each week just to try it out - - so here's this week's version - with a skirt.  I really liked the look this week!  I had a church luncheon to go to, so it was kinda dressy, but it was on a Saturday, so I didn't want to be too dress.  The skirt I made (simple knit skirt tutorial) and the shirt is the infamous $1 I've talked about the past several weeks:
Now, the new stuff - 

First up, this herringbone cardigan.  I almost didn't get it, then I thought of course I'm getting it!  I wasn't sure if I should wear it buttoned or open - so I opted for open...
Later in the week I found this bohemian type dress thing, which I thought was worth buying just for the fabric that was calling my name.  But then I thought, why not wear it - so I did.  It was SO comfy! It's spaghetti strapped, so I wore a shirt under it, which looks weird, so I wore a jacket over all of it.
 Anyways, thoughts on my finds?  Keep going with them in my wardrobe rotation, or move them along?

Oooh I love the herringbone cardigan - too cute!

That cardigan is just awesome!!

the cardigan is super cute. I've never seen one like it! How fun!

Love the orange cardigan with the blue socks! I would have never guessed that would work together. Looks great!

I LOVE that cardigan!! Very cute. I love that it's orange, too.

the orange and blue outfit rocks. Love the orange necklace too! I like the bohemian dress as well. Would make a pretty swimsuit cover up too.

Love that cardi! I would wear it open, just like you did! The pattern could be too much if you buttoned it, IMO

Wow those outfits are adorable!!!!
Loved the striped skirt, must check that tutorial out!
I never have that kind of cute luck in thrift stores.

I think that's the best denim shirt look yet! :) I like the sweater too! Not so much the dress... Maybe it just needs sandals instead of boots!?!

That cardigan is so cute! I think it looks great open!

Love the cardi!! Open is definitely better....small closed cardi's look weird. Like the first outfit, though not overly crazy on the boots with it....
Nice dress though again not with the boots....or the t-shirt..was a vest top not available?

I am crazy for a $1 shirt! nice! and it looks great belted with a skirt!

That herringbone cardigan is AMAZING! I love it and it is PERFECT how you paired it with the shirt and that long necklace. Which by the way, I would LOVE to have. The skirt outfit is also adorable.

I loveeeeeee the cardigan! SO love it!!! It's times like these that thrifting makes me a tiny bit sad because I can't go to a link and buy it! But oh my goodness I love it!
