Mark had his work Christmas party last weekend and we planned an entire day date for the two of us. Sipping coffee, no rushing around, slowly walking through Ikea, and looking at Christmas lights. We spent years never getting away, just the two of us, so this was a much anticipated treat.
If I am being honest, the last nine years have been spent filling my drawers with maternity clothes and “easy to nurse in” tops (which I have loved so much- no complaints here). It has only been recently that I have been able to branch out and wear different clothing pieces. With that said, I don’t have a big shopping budget- like at all, so I rely on second hand shops to grab high-quality, gently-used pieces.
Earlier this year I found thredUp. It is an online store that specializes in offering second-hand clothing at a fraction of the cost. I have received several items from thredUp and have been extremely pleased with the quality. Some of the items even have tags still on them.
For our day date, I wanted to be casual, but still feel stylish. It’s cold here and I knew I would need a jacket pretty much the entire day, so I grabbed this sweet leather coat from thredUp (brand: Kut from the Kloth). It is normally over $100, but I got it for more than half-off of the retail price. Y’all, you cannot even tell this isn’t brand new. There’s no pilling or wear marks on the leather. It fits great and I loved having a cuter coat to wear on our date. 🙂
I reached out to thredUp and they have a deal for you if you want to grab some pieces for your Christmas wardrobe. You can get H &M clothing for up to 50% off (discount is up to $50 off of the total price of your order). Head here to see the items they have (there are some really cute dresses and coats available) and use the code HANDM50 to grab your 50% off! Enjoy!!!
