Kayla from Kayla K’s Thrifty Ways is doing a great project this week. She’s combining thrift store finds to put together a week’s worth of outfits for just $50. Kayla says she notices that college students can get by just fine on t-shirts and jeans but that senior year comes as a shock when they need clothes suitable for internships, student teaching, and interviews. Kayla will model five ensembles appropriate for student teaching, and I think, just about any professional or office environment.
This photo is Tuesday’s contribution. So cute! I will definitely be checking back in this week. She’ll also be highlighting the green aspect of thrift shopping.

For those of you who love to sew, Kayla shares lots of sewing projects and patterns on her blog. She made this adorable baby cardigan that will be packaged in a layette and donated to Lutheran World Relief before Easter. It’s part of her idea to give things away rather than give things up for Lent this year.
Kayla also posts recipes and craft projects, so check it out. And don’t forget to check back in to see what other thrifty outfits she comes up with this week.
