This was from a few weeks ago when we had our first snow of the year. It only snowed for a few hours and then disappeared completely before midday, which was disappointing.
It wasn’t very cold out so I thought it would be a good time to wear this new dress I found at the thrift store. I had been hoping to find a plaid dress for a while so I was very excited when I stumbled upon this one. Maybe one day I’ll find another one that isn’t so short and I can wear it without leggings. That’s one reason I love thrift shopping, you never know when you’re going to find something you’ve been looking for!
This is one of two nice winter skirts I found at the thrift store the other day, which I was quite excited about. I always seem to fall into a fashion rut in the winter consisting of a sweater, jeans and boots combo, because I’m cold and too lazy to think about layering things. It’s not even officially winter yet and I have already started to fall into that rut, so I am trying to snap out of it fast!
So, does anybody else have a harder time putting outfits together in the winter?
If I look thicker than normal, it’s because I was wearing a lot of clothes.
On this day we were going to a bonfire and it was supposed to get very cold that night. I wanted to be warm, but I didn’t want to wear the usual jeans and a sweater I always end up wearing every single day of the winter, so I got creative! I am wearing two pairs of thick, knitted tights with leggings over top. And because the sleeves of this dress are open and flow-y, I was able to stuff a long sleeved shirt and my warmest bulky sweater underneath, then I squeezed it all together with this cardigan. I also wore a scarf and I ended up being quite warm the entire evening, even hot at one point! I am pretty excited about my new layering skills.
How do you dress to keep warm in the winter?
I finally found the kind of skirt I have been looking for. Something with a high waist, but not so short I am afraid to bend over.
I found it at a thrift store along with everything else in this outfit, which I wore to go to even more thrift stores. I’m losing my desire to ever shop anyplace else.
I love our elephant ear plant. It’s getting so big!
The wind was blowing in the perfect direction to fluff out my hair this day..
I am really liking this hair cut. I am so glad the orange is finally gone and it’s blonde again, although I am getting the urge to add some fun color to it.. Pink maybe? Or mint green? I really like the idea of mint green hair.. We’ll see!
This is still my favorite blouse, and has been since I got it over a year ago. I think I paid 25 bucks for it which is a lot for me considering I normally get most of my clothes at thrift stores. But I’ve definitely made good use of it. I like the skirt because it’s one of my favorite colors besides mint green. However, unlike mint green, I am not wanting my hair ever this color ever again.

Most days we were at the beach, I lived in my bathing suit. But the times I wore actual clothes, I chose pastels and white because they seemed like the perfect beach colors.
The only time I really wear contacts is at the beach, and that means I can wear my beloved sunglasses! I probably have about ten pairs that are just sitting around collecting dust because I used to be a sunglasses fool back in the day, before my eyes went bad. This pair is one of my favorites.
Waves are really unpredictable…..
And that one got me bum all wet!
I wish I was back at the beach.

I hadn’t worn this dress in a really long time. I would always pass over it in my closet for some strange reason. But then the other day I tried to remember why the heck I stopped wearing it and I came up with nothing, so I put it on.
I love the way it fits, I love the pattern and I love the little buttons on the top. It has definitely become one of my favorite dresses again! I wish I had it in a bunch of other colors.
Have you ever re discovered a piece of clothing that you had forgotten about?
