I’ve been transitioning all of my winter clothes into more spring-appropriate choices. The  hardest part of a seasonal transition is always the weather. Layering over a sheer blouse creates a polished look that is still breezy.  I wanted the top to be the only color of the outfit to really draw attention to the amazing pattern. It adds a larger pattern in contrast with the black and white animal print skirt.

I’ve been so excited to share some of my newest finds. It was in October that I met Kathy who acquired a house full of vintage clothes. I was lucky enough to look through a grand collection of garments and I found some of my favorite new pieces. The best part about thrifting and finding pre loved pieces is that there’s always a story to it. When I started going through Kathy’s collection I found pieces from the 60’s,70’s, 80’s, and 90’s that were the best part of each decade. I love knowing that I can walk around in something that was once part of someone else’s life.

I started this outfit with the stripe pants and top being the base. I couldn’t help but add a contrasting shade of blue to tie in my denim. It’s easy to be afraid of adding too much but sometimes more is better.

One of the hardest things to get rid of for fall is the breezy summer dresses. I completely understand! Especially since it’s so humid here it’s kind of hard to imagine wearing a sweater or boots. So instead of layering up I decided to do a fall colored palette for my makeup.  It switches the typical natural summer look with something a little more bold and smoldering.

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of September… Fall starts on the 22nd and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s always a later start for me since I live in the south… the humidity always overtakes my love for Fall fashion.

I’ve been seeing a lot of slip dresses. I found this Betsey Johnson one while thrifting and I loved the pattern.. Feminine and bold. I wanted to contrast the bright yellow with cobalt blue shoes. When I go matchy matchy with an outfit I usually bring in a complimentary color to calm it down.

I’ve been madly thrifting and collecting new pieces. I found this dress and handbag while at an estate sale in Little Rock. The lady who owned it had a fabulous collection and impeccable taste. I even found some furniture pieces while I was there.

Here’s one of the other pieces I found at the same sale.. I love the back detail of the chair. I’m thinking If I can get a beautiful velvet to pull some color out of the back I can fix up the seat with it. I’m not sure the age of the chair or anything so if anyone knows I’d love to hear what the age is. P.s…sorry for the messy room.. I just snapped this picture really quick.

Have a great week! 🙂
