Coral pleats and crop tops

Crushing on pleated skirts and lacy puff sleeve crop tops this week. How fun! Both items were found at Ross, so you know they were a good price, too. Plus a bonus peek at how to style a silk scarf.

Polka dot ruched lace top, Ross; coral pleated skirt, Ross; pink scarf, old; colorful handbag, given to me, old; white flats, Ross.

This outfit is so much fun. The colors are bright and cheery despite the fact that we are now heading into our gloomiest time of the year. Bright colors are my jam! It also has a bit of a romantic feel with the long pleated skirt and lacy puff sleeve top.

I started out wearing the scarf around my shoulders, tied at the waist. There was still a bit of a chill in the air. Then I tied it around my waist. At some point I tried tying it around my bun, however, it is so long, that didn’t work as well as it would have with a shorter scarf. Eventually I decided to wear it like a normal scarf.

What are your favorite ways to wear a silk scarf?

Polka dots and lace

I was going to take some bags of clothing to Goodwill last month, only to find myself at Goodwill, minus the bags of clothing. So I just went in and browsed around. I found this cute polka dot dress with lace marked with the color of the week for half off, so I snagged it for $3.50. Not bad, if I say so myself.

The bag of clothing still hasn’t made it’s way to Goodwill, but it keeps getting added to, so it’s all good. It has now become two bags of clothing, as my son added to it as well. It will get there one of these days.


The lace details on this dress were too cute to resist. I’m always a fan of cute details.

I attempted to style the cardigan wrap thingy again. Mostly I was wearing it with a big white belt across the front. Other than draping it over my shoulders like a poncho.

This weekend, I’m mourning the passing of summer as our high temps have only been in the 50’s. Not even that yet today. My sister even had snow already down in Bend! Craziness, I’m telling ya! Just say no to early winter.

Thank you for stopping by. If there is no post next weekend, just know my body did not want to acclimate to the cooler temperatures just yet, and I just said ‘no’ to taking more photos for the blog. Ha. (Funny how at the other end of winter, these same temps feel like spring is coming on and it’s time to go outside and have fun again.)
