THURSDAY'S THRIFT....staycation

Have you ever looked at your thrift purchases after you get home from thrifting and realize that you must be in need of a vacation or a very long nap?  Yesterday, I had the pleasure of shopping with my close friend Jenni's mom on her birthday.  I called her in the morning to wish her a  happy birthday and let her know that I was going thrifting just in case she could snag a few moments in her day to join me.  Marcelle, is one of the coolest mom's you ever want to shop with or just hang out with.  She is funny, easy going, generous, stylish, and level headed( I need this type person shopping with me so that I don't just buy things because they are inexpensive).  She saved me a ton of money yesterday when she helped me weed out the things that I didn't need and that were not on sale. 
God that sounds so cheap.  It's not, it's smart and thrifty even at Goodwill.
Target shorts/$4.00 new with tags.
Polka dot belt/.99cents

Pajama or dress, it's still adorable for $3/new with tags. It is a little big but I can remedy that with a belt and wear a tee under it or just wear it to comfy.

Had to have it in pink too.  Also $3 new with tags.  This one is two sizes smaller and fits perfectly.  These must be junior sizes because I am no longer an extra large up top...wink and a smiling from ear to ear.

Polka dots are a necessary wardrobe staple for me just like stripes....$2 on sale

Marcelle discovered these Nautica pj bottoms in which I will wear as shorts this summer...$1.99 score. Thanks for the Sear Suckers Marcelle...ha!

Rolled the bottoms to showcase how I will wear them...

I bought this neutral sweater as I don't have many sweaters that I can wear collared shirts under so this was a bargain at $2 on sale. I paired it with the denim shorts and polka dot belt...looks so cute. 

I found this little paisley gem 2 weeks ago while thrifting and decided to add it to the mix.  $4.99 Goodwill.  A woman was eyeing  it up in my cart and asked  me where I found it while I was shopping.  Yep, I was the envy of all that day....bahahahaha!

Now, where am I going?  uuhhh, certainly not anywhere soon but when I do, I will be bringing all of these items with me...suitcase included.  Have a great day and thanks for dropping in.  I am linking this to Thursday's are for Thrifters at Brass in Pocket.  click over and see her lovely, mint green, vintage find.  dawn xo

Great finds - especially the little paisley suitcase to put it all in!
You are right, just because something is cheap doesn't mean you HAVE to buy it, I'm trying to discriminate more and duplicate less when I thrift shop.
Loving the spots and stripes! xxxx
