Clothed with Grace: Stripes and Dots

Stripes and Dots

Life is pretty busy right now. We've been working on finishing our basement and are finally at the painting stage, which is where I come in.  Fun. The light is at the end of the tunnel and we are having the carpet laid next week.  Everything is set to be done by Thanksgiving and I couldn't be more excited!  I'm sure I'll post some pictures once it's all done. : )

I'm loving this professional look today.  This blazer, top, and skirt were definitely smart purchases this fall, the outfit possibilities are seeming to be endless.  I rarely thrift anymore, but the one time I went this month I found this new Loft skirt for $3 and I couldn't believe it, I have a bunch of pinned looks with red skirts, but actually came up with this one on my own.  I feel like I've come a long way since last year and now see possibilities in my closet that I never saw before, and that's pretty awesome.

  3. Great outfit Ginny. Love the striped blazer and love that you got that skirt for $3. Good luck with the renos. They can be stressful.

  15. Looking great! Oh painting and renovations...we are in the middle of helping my brother and sister-in-law...such exhausting work! I have found some of the best deals thrifting (about once a month). I love my south Lincoln store where almost always I find great items practically straight from the store with tags still on!
