Not thrifted– F21 Creme Moto Vest 

I have never been much of a blouse person and now that I have embraced them, I wonder how I managed without them.. Since I am starting pretty much from scratch in this department,  I am glad for the selection available at thrift stores .  Getting them for such great prices  and in new condition is just such a bonus and means I can indulge my desire to add these into my spring wardrobe.  A floral jacket and lightwash denim one have both been on my wish list and I have been looking for both for a few months now.  I indulged in a trip to Forever 21 for the sole purpose of getting one of these faux leather moto vests to wear for Spring.  My Spring wish list is shrinking and now only includes some  shoes that help add that edge I am looking for since I currently only own ballet flats , canvas boat shoes and wedge slingback  sandals…

Dear Readers, How is your wish list for Spring coming along?  What are you most excited about getting this season?  Any favorites from My Lucky Finds?   I appreciate and welcome your comments!   I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and if you celebrate Easter that it is a wonderful day of prayer and celebration of renewal filled with the laughter of children and love of family.  

Gratitude:  I am grateful to have spent a day with a wonderful friend and getting out after two weeks of being sick.  I am grateful for the joy my youngest brought to me when he came in and said something in a foreign language and then informed me he used Google Translator to help him communicate with a boy in Romania who he is playing Minecraft with.. (the beauty of homeschooling and technology).  I am grateful for a wonderful discussion on the phone with a dear friend and her request to write her a recommendation letter ( a true honor to do for this amazing woman!)  I am grateful for the upcoming weekend filled with friends and family fun!

Glad you are feeling better.
Thrifting is such a great way to dive into new styles that you aren’t sure of. I do love a good thrift trip and it seems like yours was very productive. Enjoy.

Glad your feeling better!

Tracey, love the pink oxford and have been eyeing the moto vests as well. Cannot wait to see how you wear the vest. Great finds, you make me want to do a little thrifting myself. The kids go back to school on Monday and maybe I will do a little thrifting1 Happy Easter

I wish you great success and hope you find something that makes you feel special!

Hi Tracey, I so love these posts! The 1st top you showed, I just bought at Macy’s, on sale, for $24.99! Not much of a sale when compared to what you paid, even after my 20% off coupon, lol. I also had a successful thrifting week, picking up a Dooney bag for $35, and a Vera Bradley in a beautiful pattern for $15. I also went to a 50% off thrift sale and got several great items for $1 to $2.50. Keep up the good work!

I love that you shared with me, your finds.. It is so fun to hear that others are being successful in their thrifting ventures! The $24.99 price tag on blouses is why I didn’t have many blouses in my wardrobe!
