My mom and I spent the entire day together yesterday...Shopping, lunch, a little gossip...mostly just enjoyed each others company and spent each others money.."this is so you...you need to get this.." I taught mom the ropes of thrifting and I must say...she did quite well!
My mom makes me laugh...She didn't get it at first when I handed her this shirt and said it was perfect for her. In my family, besides her I'm the shortest of us all....and I'm 5'9. haha...Not short. She's 5'4.
Life is too short to not eat dessert!
Taking mom back to her school days....This was the funnest little vintage desk!
Coast to Coast Challenge today was "All things Nautical"
Pants- Anthropologie via DE Shirt-Thrifted Tennies-Thrifted Watch-DKNY via Nordstrom Rack
Oh I love these pants! I wish they were two sizes smaller but I make do....
My outfit total cost (without the watch...it never counts because I've had it for a couple years and I wear it all the time) is around $25. I bought these shoes recently at one of my favorite thrift stores. They were having all their shoes 50% off....These cost me $.50. Yes let me spell it out.... Fifty-cents. I love the red color and they're perfect for summer! Woohooo....

Watch- DKNY via TJ Maxx Wrap Bracelet- C/O a Just Dawnelle (I won it on her blog giveaway!)
I got this wrap bracelet a few months ago...and somehow I lost it! I couldn't find it anywhere. Checked my jewelry hanger probably 3 times. I just did NOT know what I did with it! I was sad because it is a quality bracelet. Well....today I was putting my rings on and just happened to glance down...there it was. Right where I put it in my jewelry hanger. haha. I was so EXCITED! Now that is where it will go from now on haha.
Two things I want to talk about:
1. I must speak of the weather: (That makes me so cool...hmm, what to talk about... uhhhh, the weather... haha) Do you see the grass I'm standing on??? NO it's not green, but it's not covered in snow which makes me happy. I was outside without a coat all day today and yesterday! Does this mean spring is coming??? I sure hope so!
2. Must try: I am an avid lover of coconut oil as a hair moisturizing treatment. Usually I put it in my hair for 1-2 hours before I get in the shower. Well...I decided to try it over night. I just didn't like the thought of sleeping in an uncomfortable shower cap the whole night. But...it was worth it. My hair feels so good! It will be a "to do" for me every week now!!! Try it...you won't be sorry!

Here is a little Sunday inspiration....
“If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway…
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you and them anyway.”
So when I went thrifting this week...At the DI (a thrift store) I swear there were like 20 of these vintage style shirts (the one I am wearing is one of them) This is seriously a terrible terrible thought, but I couldn't help but wonder if someone died. I know that a lot of older people just stick with the clothes they've had forever. I know my Grandma always did. So I'm glad to know if that was the case, this shirt went to a good home.
I added a few things to my own wardrobe. Loving the soft colors.
