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

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

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

Latest Thrifts

    Hello all! I am participating in the 30 for 30 challenge and just have not gotten around to posting those 30 items yet. In the meantime, these were my last and latest finds for the next 30 days as I am not shopping until December 7! I've decided to take a little spin on this whole 30x30 challenge thing everyone is doing. See, my problem is not that I can't put outfits together with the clothes I have, but I have so many pieces I never wear/ have never worn! I am going to make it my own personal challenge to wear at least one thing everyday that I have not worn in the past six months.

Church on Sunday

Blazer (the PERFECT fit!), $3.89

Chloe makeup bag, $1.79

American Eagle white shirt, $2.50

Old Navy blue button down, $2.50

Sunday Blog Spotlight: Atlantic-Pacific

    This Sunday I am choosing to feature the fashion blog Atlantic-Pacific. I found it this week while browsing through some other blogs and was very impressed! I have never seen style like hers anywhere. Everyday she seems to have a new persona, whether it be feminine, rocker, or an eclectic mix. She started the blog this past April so is still fairly new, but is definitely a blog that will rise to the top quickly! Check her out here:

Current Inspirations

     This cold (65 degrees is cold to us in Florida!) weather has really had me in a clothing funk the past few days, so my outfits haven't been more than jeans and a tee shirt. I decided to blog about my current inspirations instead!

Charm bracelets!

Anything floral


Beautiful vintage necklaces

Lauren Conrad's line for Kohls

The cutest house in the world!
