Hello and thank you for stopping by Countdown to Friday! CTF is a secondhand style and travel file created by me, Kristin. Here you’ll find affordable outfit inspiration via secondhand shopping for work, weekend, and everywhere in between. Over the years I’ve transitioned from a retail shopper to a thrift shopper, and sharing my thrifted looks is something I value for so many reasons: affordability, sustainability, and creativity!
In addition to wearing secondhand clothes, I also sell them on the Poshmark. So tips on reselling (whether it’s items from your own closet or those that you source elsewhere) are also shared here.
Besides secondhand style, I also share my passion for travel on this blog. As a military spouse I was fortunate enough to live in Germany for 3 years, where I traveled my heart out all over Europe. Now I’m back in the US and loving the chance to explore my home country even more. Whether it’s a major landmark or hidden gem, I’m always down for some travel with a budget in mind. Since returning from Germany, I’ve lived in Richmond, Virginia and am presently located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, so most of my US travel content reflects that.
If secondhand style and travel sounds good to you, grab your beverage of choice (mine would be something sparkly) and start your Countdown to Friday.
