THURSDAY'S THRIFT....seahorses and sailboats

Hi Darlings, today is Thursday's thrift and I am showcasing my new boobs and weight loss thrifted sailboat and seahorse patterned jacket that I scored about 3 years ago at Goodwill while shopping with a good friend and follower of this blog, Barb.  She and I spent 2 hours in the dressing room together trying everything on and this was one of my finds that I have never been able to come close to buttoning.  I remember Barb asking me if I thought I would wear the jacket and I was certain that I would, therefore, it went into the purchase pile. $3.99 Bargain!

These nautically inspired, thrifted pants from Gap did not fit me 6 weeks ago when I bought them.  I could not button or zip them.  Today, they went right up.  So exciting.  Goodwill/$3.99
 
I scored these Rocef shoes in Hawaii last year at Savers thrift...very lightweight and comfy...less than $10.00
 
My scarf is thrifted and vintage...it is my most favorite go to scarf when trying to pull a nautically inspired outfit together.  Goodwill .99cents
 
Sailboats and Seahorses


This suede, thrifted, vintage bag is one of my most favorite finds from goodwill...less than $3.00

I hope everyone is doing well.  Thank you for all of your comments, prayers, emails, and blessings during my time away from outfit posting.  You are all so encouraging and inspiring.  I am going to ease back in so I am not sure when I will post again as I still have good days and bad days regarding pain.  I wore a regular bra for the first time today....it makes me appear fuller than I really am but that's ok, I was happy that I could actually wear it and feel good.  Cheers to smaller boobs!  I can now cross this off my bucket list. (.)(.)=happy!!!  I am linking this totally thrifted outfit to Dawn's blog, Brass In Pocket for Thursday's are for Thrifters...thanks for hosting, Dawn.
