This week has been crazy busy but not nearly as crazy busy as next week will be. Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving? I am so not ready. I don’t have a turkey or a ham. I have one can of pumpkin pie filling and a bag of potatoes. Did I mention that I’m having my parents, my sister and her family over? Are you ready? Do you have a menu planned?
I’ve got nothing. Well, no, I do know what I’m going to wear and, really, looking cute is all that’s important. The pictures will last forever, the meal not so much.
What I Wore Friday
The hubs and I spent some time together on Friday, just hanging out. I almost never wear dresses or skirts unless we’re going to church but I just couldn’t resist slipping into this cute little peasant dress. Can you believe I got it on sale for $2.47? Craziness, huh?
Notice the socks? I love the look of socks with boots and skirts/dresses. I just think it looks so playful and fun. And it keeps my toes warm.
What I Wore Monday
Today began the Colors of the Season Fall Fashion Challenge and the first challenge was to wear teal. This one was so hard for me. I knew it would be. I’d long ago given my only teal item to one of my daughters who then gave it to one of my other daughters. I took it back.
And that skirt? I bought it at the thrift store! I cannot believe I found something so cute. I’m always complaining that our thrift stores have the ugliest clothes but looook what happens when you go digging. It still had the tags on it!
Also, you can’t tell, but I’m wearing wine colored tights. Yep, I’m totally digging the colored tights trend.
What I Wore Tuesday
I’ve had that velvet blazer in my closet for. Ever. I’m not sure what made me buy it… The color, the velvet, the Victorian cut? I don’t know but it probably would’ve continued to sit in my closet had it not been for this challenge.
Also I was having a really good hair day…
What was the last thing you thrifted or grifted?
