I suppose the indian summer ended today. We've been having sunny warm days, but they've been accompanied by crisp cool mornings and evenings. Today stayed grey, gloomy, and cold, so I'm taking that as a sign that the fall weather is here, and the time has come to toss on sweaters. Love this one I picked up for 99 cents thrifting. And in the spirit of justifying my laziness, and blaming the weather, I haven't left the house today :O Oh, and regarding the name of this post. The song has been stuck in my head, and I think I've listened to it about 5 times today! <3 br="br">

So. I absolutely love thrifting. I had heard that at a local thiftstore, ST. VINCENT de PAUL, all apparel is 99 cents on Sundays. So I decided to check it out, and was so happy that I did. It's a smaller thrift store, and believe that most of the items are likely donated by little old ladies, which is probably why I loved it. I thought this labrador brooch that doubles as a necklace pendant was just darling.
 I picked up this over sized mint sweater that I plan to wear belted with leggings. I'm a sucker for anything resembling a mermaid, and the color fit the ticket. The knit pattern reminds me a bit of fish scales, giving it bonus mermaid points. My favorite find was this light pink sweater, with a rose pattern on it. I've already worn it with velvet leggings, and am imagining all the future potential it has. Paired with high-waist shorts. Colored leggings. Colored skinnys. Pencil skirts. So much potential here. The best part of my thrifting trip? My total was only $3.24. Money in my pocket, and clothes in my wardrobe. What are some of your best thrifting finds? I'd love to see pics, so send me links if you have any.
