I wore this zebra dress to work & garage sale-ing. I love green & Kiyonna wraps, so this was an immediate buy now for me. This is a true wrap & a tad short, but that's what leggings & teggings are for! I will wear this fun print all year round. 
I had to visit Kate at work two days in a row & have her snap some pictures of me outside her office since Super Boo was in California. Such a sweet girlie! 
I wore this fit & flare to work & to more garage sales. The colors in this dress were gorgeous, but the fabric was felt like a couch slipcover & was very heavy for this summer day in August. Triste is one of Gwynnie Bee's house brands that they have recently been upgrading with better material...but this is one of the originals. 
This was my first time wearing these summer length teggings, they are purple, which doesn't show up so well in the photos. I love them. 
Thursday's garage sale treasures...check out that groovy bowling ball! 
Friday's garage sale discoveries, kaleidoscopes. This was the first year I've really gone to garage sales since high school. I hear about all the fabulous finds friends & others come across at sales, but I don't have the patience for that...I go to one garage sale every summer & it's full of baby clothes & melted tupperware...& I give up. This year I read the ads with a more critical eye & it's become my new favorite thing...I might as well face it, I'm addicted to garage sales. I love the thrill of leaving the house & not knowing what I might come home with...all for a mere few dollars. 
Vintage English gold globe fizzy water maker!
Green & two favorite colors together again...
Purple & orange, another lovely color combination...
Wendy makes the prettiest floral creations in all the land. The necklace is a barrette of hers I fastened onto a vintage chain. 


  1. I love Kate's stripey dress -- SO flattering! I love seeing you wear shorter dresses with leggings/teggings -- super inspiring! I'm a big fan of getting more-than-seasonal use out of garments ... thanks for the wonderful photos and captions.

    1. Thanks for your lovely comments! I am completely in love with teggings, I just wish they made more colors. Now that it's been colder here...I wear knee socks over them since they are thin enough. I hate wearing things just one season and try to find ways to wear them year round.
