Well I don’t know what the weather is like in your little corner’s of the world, but here in north Texas, it is officially fall & nothing pleases me more.
I know there are truly few declarations more basic in nature, aside from perhaps “a pumpkin spice latte, please.”
I just don’t care. Fall is far and away my most favorite season. Ever since I can remember I have gotten giddy with the first signs of it… those first, brave leaves that begins to turn a bold and vibrant orange hue, the first of many breezy days, carrying with it the subtle scent of earth and fire, the begin of sun’s slow retreat as the day’s shorten and the evening’s creep in, earlier and earlier.
Now I’ll tell you what else I love, thrifting. That’s right, I love sorting through the racks for that diamond in the rough & stealing away my deal to cherish anew. Furthermore, I love a good deal. I mean, seriously. Aside from the occasional splurge or essential, I just can’t understand, no, I can’t justify paying full price for anything. As a recent graduate on a budget, my thriftiness has reached new levels. I’ve always enjoyed thrifting, but lately Goodwill is my go to.
So, in the interest of sharing some interests with you, oh reader – I just wanted to take a moment to, well, share with you some of the bits and bobs that I collected this most lovely month of the year… October has been good to me. Let me know what you think! Have you had any thrift store successes this month?
Pictured above are some of my favorite purchases, a sleeveless orange knit from New York & Co. with a cute little collar, a Target brand stripey olive green/brown/black boxy shirt, and two cozy-comfy turtleneck sweaters a lá Karen Scott, in oatmeal colored wool and red cashmere. A very sleepy lil ole me sports my most loved buy, the top bit of a matching set, tucked into a pair of Topshop jeans I had scooped up from the sales rack of a local Nordstrom’s Rack. I seriously adore this top with it’s matching ankle length, waist-cinching skirt. Questionable to the brand, but not to my affections. It is love. I love matching sets and the versatility that they provide.
Not shown here, but included in this month’s buys (I’m still working on my editorial picture taking and just could not get this bugger to shoot well) a Michael Kor’s jet black, tailored shirt dress that I picked up for my mom. Some finds are so great, I just can’t stand to leave them in the store, even if they’re not my size. My mom was certainly appreciative of the purchase!
Hope you enjoyed this little bitty peek into my fall fashion wardrobe,
