I know that sounds shallow (and it probably is), but you have to understand that last spring and summer I had nothing to wear.
Maybe that's an overstatement, but it felt like it. I wore this denim jacket about every other day. It just seemed like I couldn't find anything that I liked to wear.
Yesterday, I went to Goodwill to look for some fabric for a project, and I had one of the best Goodwill days I have ever had...EvEr!
Here's what I got (just focus on the tops and not my jeans and boots....and ignore my hair for that matter)
I'm not 100% happy with this striped sweater (1) and navy tank (2) together. It needs something else, but I don't know what yet.
The silky coral multi-layer tank (3) and the white tank (4) underneath look good with my grey sweater for now, but I don't know what I'll pair them with this summer. ***I was getting tired of taking pictures at this point.
Even though this brown Ann Taylor shirt (5) is long sleeve, it's sheer and perfect for warmer weather.
I put this coral sheer sweater (6) with a ruffled top that I already had. I may end up putting this sweater with a more simple shirt and a belt, but I don't know yet.
I loved this sheer polka dot belted shirt (7). It's cute by itself, or I may have to pair it up with something else. I guess I should also cut the Goodwill tag off.
I love this little black jacket (8). I don't know if this ruffled shirt is it's permanent friend, but it's working for now.
This peachy/coraly t-shirt (9) looks great under a sweater I already had. Can you tell by all these outfits that I've been a little obsessed with tangerines and coral colors?
I saw an outfit like this on pinterest so when I saw this striped shirt (10) I knew it would look great with this belt and sweater that I already had.
The Goodwill Fairy really hit big, and I feel like I am ready for spring now. I may even be able to retire my denim jacket...but I do love that jacket.
I found many of these shirts on the same rack. They were on a rack fresh out of the back room. It must have been a donation from a woman my size with impeccable taste!
If you add it all up I got these 10 tops for $41.64. That's the price of one shirt elsewhere! I've been saving up to get a new camera, but I had to break into my new camera fund for such a good deal.
Somebody else was blessed by the Goodwill Fairy yesterday.
A really nice Goodwill customer saw me with my two boys and said, "Hey, there are some Harley Davidson boots if you are interested." I looked at her and said, "My son is wearing a pair of snow boots right now. So yes, we are interested."
Four dollars later and I have one happy, HaPpY little boy, but he was too busy looking tough to look happy in this picture.
I'm sharing this post with the Pleated Poppy's What I Wore Wednesday and Real Momma, Real Style on Momma go round.
