Spring for a Day!

Posted on: April 25, 2013

Today (Wednesday),  a warm front moved in and brought high’s of 78 degrees! It’s only lasting one day and back to the 50’s again…  I woke up to a friend texting me to go thrifting and jumped out of bed and put this together!  

Linking up today with The Tiny Heart – petite fashion blog

I knew I was going to take advantage of the warmth by wearing a skirt….  This  thrifted jean skirt is  one I wore winterized before with burgundy moto jacket and boots…

This shirt was purchased last year via Chadwicks and I loved it so much I purchased it in a cobalt blue as well…

I love the rosette detailing.

Wednesday at Salvation Army is half off clothing day, so we headed there today instead of our typical Tuesday’s at Goodwill.. We both missed the WW meeting so made up for our weekly thrifting trip today!  I already have this week’s Lucky find post together, so next week will show my score!  

Dear Readers, I hope you are having a great week.. I picked up my new glasses after thrifting… I will feature them sometime next week…I have to get use to myself in glasses again as I have been wearing contacts these days….All comments are welcomed and appreciated.. I truly love hearing from my dear readers!  

Gratitude:  I am grateful for my thrifting trip today… I am grateful that my husband was home while I went out and helped Connor do the homeschooking assignment I had left for him.  I am grateful that Friday two dear friends I haven’t seen in awhile are joining me for lunch.  I am grateful for a wonderful phone conversation with my daughter and am so looking forward to her graduation Mother’s Day weekend!!! 

Wednesday’s Food Choices

Breakfast– whipped up a Tropical Fruit smoothie to go thrifting

Lunch–  Banana & PB   and Yogurt w/ green tea

Dinner– Stuffed Chicken breast w/ fresh  spinach, feta and Ital seasoning (YUUUM!)

Snack;  Grapes and Newton Thins

Isn’t it funny that shopping trip can get us out of bed so fast? When I know I am going shopping, I am up and ready to go, ha ha!

The purple shirt is so pretty and flowy. I like to call these Stevie Nicks tops 🙂 Whenever I wear that style of top I always want to twirl around and sing Fleetwood Mac songs. Heather

So funny thanks for sharing and yes, shopping can drive any fashion lover to unusual swiftness!

So cute; love the embroidery on the skirt!
I have an adorable spring skirt that I picked up recently while thrifting but we haven’t had the appropriate weather to wear it yet!

Great look! I love 50% off day! I found 3 Chicos jackets yesterday. I shouldn’t have bought all of them, but they were only $2 and $2.50 each, so I couldn’t pass them up. I also bought my daughter a gorgeous brand new looking gap coat for $2.50. She was thrilled. Can’t wait to see what you found!

Sounds great… how do you know what size to wear in Chicos?… I see a lot of their items, but don’t understand the sizing…

Their sizes are confusing. I usually wear a 2 in tops and a 1.5 in bottoms. You would probably wear 1s.

Tracey, have you purchased the DYT course? If you haven’t, today is the last day it is on sale through a friends and family sale and I can get you a code to get it for only $99. I paid $175.

No and thanks for the offer, keeping spending down with my daughter’s college graduation fast approaching.. We have hotels & meal expenses for three days.. Not to mention her gift and extended family dinner once we get her moved out and back home….an exciting expensive time!!!

Sounds like a lot of fun!..My daughter is finishing up 11th grade, so she’ll be in college tooo soon.

I love love love the top!! Looking good girl!

So pretty in purple. Great outfit for shopping. Can’t wait to see your finds! I went thrifting today too. I hit the jackpot on jeans (which I can never find to suit me and I didn’t really have any left that fit me). So I got 3 pair, and a colored pair, and a t-shirt. Nothing too exciting, but needed.

I was also glad to see the arrival of Spring as well! Thanks for linking up.
