Hello all! I have been on hiatus and needed a break from the blogging life. I've found that I love writing and blogging, but after I started this blog, I noticed that I spent much more money on things that I didn't necessarily need or want after a period of time. Although I love this blog, I know that I can't continue with it unless I can come up with a new concept that will not have me out shopping three times a week : ) Ideas?

MaxMara-The perfect coat

     Today I went out to the mall and did some Christmas shopping which ended me up at Goodwill...don't know how that happened ;) I was looking through the blazers when I found this perfect khaki colored MaxMara wool coat! It was way too large for me and I just could not bring myself to put it back on the rack because it was half off at $2.50! I have been keeping more of an editing eye though and I know that if I did bring it home I would never ever take the time to bring it to the tailor to bring it in. I know I'll end up regretting it though haha...

It was even prettier in person :/

Old Navy rabbit hair sweater-$2.50

New York &Co blazer-$2.50

Michael Kors tunic-$2.50

Banana Republic shirt-$2.50


Lace vest-$2.50

Coach purse-$8.99

From antique store-$3.50

Picnic Basket!

     Today when I went to Goodwill I was rewarded by double checking my surroundings! I scanned the shelves as usual but didn't pay much attention to the bottom shelf, but when I checked a second time I spotted this awesome picnic basket for $3.50! I HAD to have it! Even if I never use it on picnics, it's just the cutest thing.

My picnic basket! $3.50

It even came with the original plastic plates and cups

2 mini vases to add to my collection-50 cents each

Silver pieces- $2.50 each

I bought 4 of these from Ross for $2.99 each-so cute!

     Lately I have been enjoying Ebay browsing for gorgeous jewelry! I also came across a few beautiful pictures on Google today that I had to share :)

My long delay

     It feels like forever since I've posted anything! ): I have been so busy lately trying to deal with so many things on my plate. I'm preparing to move to a new town, change colleges, and quit my job and start a new one. I had a cold for about a week in that time and now don't feel good again either! Oh well! Here are two outfits I made from last week. Sorry for the camera photo but my other camera was in use by someone else at the time. I also don't ever want to force myself to post every single day because who wants to read something I didn't even enjoy writing? My posts may be less but every time I do write something it will be because I want to :)
Blazer,top,and belt are all thrifted!

Thrifted scarf and bag

Found Givenchy at Goodwill!

Blogging Hiatus

    Sorry that I haven't been posting for the past few days! I have taken a blogging hiatus because I've been feeling a bit under the weather lately. My outfits have only consisted of jeans and a t-shirt for comfort and I wanted to spare you all the obvious. :) I'll be back in a few days!
    I stopped by the beach this morning when my professor canceled class...:)

Day 3

     I have to say that I felt like a total prep in this outfit! At first I was just wearing the blue shirt (which is the piece I haven't worn yet!) but it just looked boring. I really liked the juxtaposition of the purple and blue colors together...which brought back memories from a photoshoot I did last year! We match! :)

Day 2

     For this outfit I combined four pieces which haven't been worn, so I think I am doing pretty good! The blazer and white shirt were thrifted this Sunday, the handbag was thrifted a few weeks ago and I haven't worn it yet, and the necklace was bought about six years ago in Colorado. I like it, but always have a hard time pairing it with clothes I like. Lately I've been wearing only gold tone jewelry and have been shying away from colors. I wanted something to make the outfit seem more casual since this blazer is in a dressier fabric.

    I also found this interesting article about Goodwill and about why more middle class shoppers are deciding to purchase secondhand. It's worth a few minutes :) Click here.

My Day 1

     Alright, so I decided to embrace this cold, high of 65 degree weather by running to my warmest cowlneck sweater! I believe I bought this back in June and would have worn it sooner if we weren't always swamped with heatwaves. These gray jeans I bought a few months back and have only worn a few times, so they needed to see the light of day as well. My brooch was also never worn, so this outfit just signifies 3 pieces in my closet that have been sitting there unloved!

Sweater (Rampage) Goodwill- $2.50, Brooch (Yard sale) $1, Jeans (Bullhead) Goodwill- $5.30, Boots (Ross) $22.99
