15 Minute Challenge

My friend, Lindsay, and I decided to give ourselves a little shopping challenge. The goal? To put together an entire outfit at a Goodwill in 15 minutes. Come along for the ride…


2:43pm-A top from The Limited with the tags still on!


2:47-Arden B top!




There you have it! And, not only did we find one cute outfit…we found 3! So, 5 minutes per outfit? Not too shabby.

We had so much fun! I think the time limit helped us quickly sort through the clothes and pick out what we seriously wanted. I would definitely challenge you to grab a friend and have your own 15 Minute Challenge. And, show me what you find!

Enjoying the Good Life,








  1. Lindsay looks GORGEOUS.
    Stunning outfits, I’m impressed. 🙂
