Kick it in style, Tampa Bay


Hello again my thrift friends!

Florida’s hot summertime is coming to a close, meaning that soon we’ll be able to enjoy those pleasant evening walks along the waterfront.

I hope you have been well and active this summer. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve been trying to stay on an active lifestyle, but I must admit, I need to be more disciplined and committed (hehe). But, a new-to-me pair of cute sneakers is helping me get motivated to move!

What a find!

I picked up a pair of Sketchers at the Goodwill location in Trinity, FL. Not only were they a steal at $8.69 (retail between $45-$60!), but their neutral colors will be versatile for both working out or wearing around town throughout the coming fall season. For the past year, I’ve become determined to adopt a minimalist closet, so shopping second-hand is an important part of that. Any thrifted item I buy needs to be able to be worn in multiple ways and go with multiple outfits, so these sneakers are a check and check in that department!

Oh, did I mention, they’re also super comfy? The shoe laces actually stay tied, instead of slipping or coming undone. Their “air cooled yoga mat” soles make me feel like I’m walking on clouds.

With our beautiful fall weather on the horizon, I can’t wait to get moving in these new kicks!
P.S. The Trinity Goodwill-Suncoast has been rocking it with cool finds lately!

Keep moving, Tampa Bay!

These shoes go from work out to casual outfits in a snap.
