ThriftMyStyle...Mixing modern and vintage + navy and white

Hi everyone! I am very much looking at trans-seasonal pieces that will be versatile and stylish to be part of my wardrobe. After my wardrobe revamp at the weekend I wanted to ensure the jackets, blouses, tees and jeans that I have will mix well and work for any season.

In Autumn last year I found this pure wool tux blazer in a neighbouring town's Sue Ryder charity shop for £4.99. It's nearly vintage-from the early 90s and in excellent condition. What drew me to it was the single breasted styling, the tux style collar and the pinstripe-dot detailing:



The finer details which add extra dimension to this tux blazer:


On Monday I thrifted this J Crew tee for £4.99 in another neighbouring town's Scope charity shop. I've not bought any J Crew pieces before and the quality of the cotton is so lovely, the tee is made in Macau and is more of a fine knit rather than a traditional 100% cotton tee:


I thought this tee would again be an ideal item under jackets and go with any denim piece and colour wise navy and white goes with virtually anything. Here they are together and I would also add a summer scarf in a contrasting print and colour to make this work in Spring and Autumn. Being in pure wool it's also ideal for all seasons and can be taken into evening wear with a silk cami underneath. 


This jacket will be ideal with skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans and also white jeans, as well as any colour tee underneath too.

What style of jacket will you wearing this coming season?

That's fab thifting and looks like a perfect denim outfit for Spring. I got a navy blue jacket with nude dots in a sale last year so I'm hoping to get some outfits planning with it for this year xx

Oh I expect I will be wearing whatever is in my wardrobe and I feel like wearing on the day! Not so good at planning ahead!
Love that blazer and tee combo- really nice colours- they were made to go together!x

Great thrift finds - I love the tees from J Crew, they are so nice and soft. I'll be wearing simple tux and cropped blazers with skirts and dresses mostly :)

I used to wear blazers all the time but then they disappeared off my radar somewhat. I really like the stripes and print Tee together, a really funky & fresh look.
I think I'll probably get back into wearing blazers again once it stops being so infernally cold...x
