Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday
Last Thursday I was up bright and early, well it actually wasn’t that bright, but it was early. I wanted to welcome in Spring and get a jump on wearing less clothing, mostly in particular no tights or hose.
After dressing quickly I rushed to the door to check out the weather, although there was still snow on the ground it wasn’t blustery cold as it had been only a few days earlier.
“Hey Spring, come on in, stay awhile, we’ve missed you!”
It felt good not to have to wear tights or hose and to be able to put on a short sleeve T-shirt was even better. I purposely thrifted this black T-shirt after seeing Ms. Looking Good in her white one. Prior to reading her post, I would have never thought to wear a t-shirt with a skirt or even to work, but I like the look – what do you think?
You remember these thrifted black patent leather ankle shoes. The geometric skirt was a clearance sale bargain from JC Penney. The necklace and earring set is from Jewelrymax.net, they have some great costume jewelry.
Have you ever been inspired by another blogger’s outfit?
What are you looking forward to shedding from your winter wardrobe?

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
This month is running wild and flying by way too quickly, there has been a whirlwind of activity in my life and that’s not even including the last snowstorm of the season. (fingers crossed) All of it has definitely been wonderful and exciting, some I can speak about, others not just yet, but it’s all good news!
- I lost my 2005 Hyundai Sonata due to engine failure and replaced her with a 2010 Hyundai Accent.
- Hubby completed his retirement paperwork, so on July 1st, he will officially be retired from the State of Delaware – congrats, I’ll give you the “honey-do” list on the 1st of August, a few weeks before our 24th Wedding Anniversary.
- The 2014 Goodwill Runway Show was fantastic, I hope you had an opportunity to read the post, if not, click here. I twisted my ankle a few hours before the event and had to change shoes 3 times, but thankfully, it wasn’t worse and I made it through the night with a smile!
On Tuesday I taught a Blogging 101 Class which is sponsored by The Money School of Delaware and there were some awesome attendees whose participation was great.
Tomorrow the temps are expected to reach the upper 50’s, so if you are getting a jump on your Spring Wardrobe don’t forget to enter to win a $50 Gift Certificate to Midnight Velvet.
Now, let’s get this party started!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
Tonight is the night…is the night…is the night…for another major SNOWSTORM – gotta love it right – NOPE! I don’t think the Robin’s in our neighborhood believes it either because they have been flying around enjoying the sun-filled days. I truly feel in my heart of hearts that this will be the last big winter snow storm of the season, what do you think?
One good thing about this month is every Sunday all adult winter clothing is just $2.00 and children’s clothing only $1.00 at Goodwill stores in Delaware and Delaware County. Last Sunday I had to meet up with one of the Runway models, so I took advantage of the day to stock up on more sweaters, seems like I’ll get a chance to wear them all in this never ending cold winter weather.
This Merona from Target colorblock sweater wasn’t part of the sale because it was new with tags, but when I saw it I grabbed it. I knew it would compliment a skirt that was previously thrifted and each piece cost only $3.75. What do you think?
Yes, I am wearing peep-toe booties in the snow! They are attention brand by Kmart, purchased a few years ago and no my toes are not cold (Miss Terri).
I couldn’t pass up this $2.00 Elizabeth Arden tote because it was the perfect size to carry to work. It’s roomy enough to hold my camera case and lunch bag as well as anything else I might need for the day AND the color – perfectly matches the outfit!! #winning
I don’t know about you, but I simply love finding these thrifted treasures and each week I’ll feature a different sweater as long as the weather holds out so that might be until June!
Today, I’m linking up with 3 of my favorite thriftinistas, Whitney Nic James, ColorBlind and DC Goodwill Fashionista. If you haven’t checked out these ladies, may I suggest you do as they too feature some awesome thrifted finds.
Oh, and if you are looking to jazz up your winter wardrobe by adding a pop of color, check out the flash sale over at * Hannah Jane’s Boutique. 15 colorful skinny belts originally $12.99 are on sale for only $5.99 with FREE shipping by using the code BELT50 at checkout. Deal runs through Friday, February 14, click link on the sidebar for more information.
Stay warm and safe during the storm and we’ll chat tomorrow.
