Holly's a high school senior from a small town in Virginia. When she's not busy with marching band, she loves to read and thrift. "I often hit up my local Goodwill, which is where I’ve found a few of my favorite thing," she says. "My style is very versatile. The trends I follow are different depending on my mood. I'm very open to trying new things so I am always looking online for cool finds and gathering inspiration from friends and influencers." Here are some of the cool finds she's grabbed lately.
Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup Primer
"I've struggled with oily skin my whole life, and I’ve found very few products that actually help. This primer has been a lifesaver! I can put a little bit on my t-zone (the worst culprit) before I apply my makeup and my face stays matte for most of the day. It’s truly a blessing, can’t recommend enough."
BUY: $14 at Ulta
"I found out about this company recently, and I absolutely fell in love with this pair when I saw them. I had been looking for new frames, particularly clear ones. These have such a low price tag ($10!) that I was apprehensive at first. Fwiw, there are options like glare protection that make them a bit more costly, which I think is worth it. These glasses go with any outfit, and they’re perfect any time I don’t want to wear my contacts."
BUY: $10 at Zenni
Dickie's Green Relaxed Fit Carpenter Pants
"These aren’t the exact pants I own—mine are vintage Ralph Lauren—but they're the closest I could find. I recently found these at a thrift store, and I love them. I’ve been looking for some slightly baggy pants that I could wear without suffocating my legs, and these do the trick. Not to mention, they're super comfortable and really cute when paired with a black turtleneck. The only thing I don’t love about them is they run a little long, but this can be easily fixed with some cropping."
BUY: $59 at Nordstrom
Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Stripe
"These shoes go with any outfit. They can be worn dressed down with casual clothes any day, or they pair well with a skirt or dress to add a touch that makes it look like you’re not trying *too* hard. They’re also super comfortable and easy to break in. They’re definitely more for daily wear than athletic though—if you’re looking for a
running shoe, these aren't it."
BUY: $50 at Rack Room
Armitron Sport Women's 45/7012 Digital Chronograph Watch
"I'm not overexaggerating when I say this watch has not left my wrist since I bought it a little over two years ago. It’s waterproof and incredibly durable, so why would it? The band is adjustable so it can fit any size wrist, and the color has remained vibrant in the time I’ve had it. Having a watch is so handy, especially because I often find myself in situations where I need to be aware of the time, but can’t keep my phone on me (like work and school). This is a cute, inexpensive watch that comes in a variety of colors if blue isn’t for you."
