When I think of spring, I think of vibrant and blooming flowers, pastels, and the cool weather. Since spring is approaching, I wanted to shop at my local Goodwill to find some springy apparel. Below I have rounded up my four items consisting of a top and three cardigans that I found at Goodwill over the weekend.

Multicolor Cardigan

I found this multi-color cardigan by No Boundaries for $5.99 which usually sells for in Walmart around $20 brand new. 

It has elements of coral, light brown and gray to it. I paired this cardigan with a light brown tee shirt from Merona, dark brown beaded necklace, a pair of Bill Bass denim jeans, and some beige converse shoes from my closet.

White Fishnet Cardigan
This white fishnet cardigan by Cynthia Rowley usually retails around $50 in TJ Maxx or Marshall’s stores in which I only paid $5.99 at Goodwill. I paired this white cardigan with two looks:

First Look:

  • Dark blue tee by Merona
  • Bill Bass blue denim jeans
  • Pair of sneakers

Second Look:

  • Dark blue tee by Merona
  • Gifted Denim skirt ­­
  • Pair of flats

Vibrant Pink/Black Floral Top

Elementz typically retails for about $20 a top at full price brand new. I found this black pink ruffle short sleeve blouse for $4.99 at Goodwill. This pretty tiered blouse is embellished with hints of floral that can be wormed to work or on the weekend. I paired this top with a solid black jacket, Bill Bass denim jeans, and a pair of flats to match.

Two-Piece Blue Floral Cardigan

This blue mesh cardigan by Alfred Dunner would typically run about $60 retailed brand new. I found this for $5.99. This blue floral cardigan has a dark blue non-detachable blouse paired with this mesh like cardigan. I paired this with a pair of dark blue pants and pink shoes from my closet to wear to work

Ready for spring? Here are my three tips for shopping for spring apparel:

  1. Prepare a list of apparel items that you would like to incorporate for spring. Usually I like to take a look at my clothing items already in my closet so that I can mix and match pieces.
  2. Get inspired. I look for inspiration at other stores such as Macy’s or Target that may have the look I like. I usually take photos of the items and I go from there.
  3. Sign up for Goodwill Rewards. Usually the cashier will ask you if you are a rewards member to receive Goodwill discounts. If not, I would recommend so to receive emails to know the color of the week to find clothing items that are half-price.
