The Puff Jacket Premier

Some friends wanted to know how I would "style" these
Goodwill finds that I wrote about in my last post. 
So here's two pictures of how I've managed to incorporate
these cheap finds into my regular wardrobe.

After wearing my new puff jacket for the past two days,
I must admit that it's becoming one of my
favorite pieces for the winter months. 

The lime green shirt is also another Goodwill find.

As long as I top it all off with a great scarf, I'm good to go!

What's your favorite piece of clothing to wear in the winter months?
Boots? Sweaters? Puff Jackets? Scarves?

Frugal Living: Less is More

Today while I was in Wichita, I decided to stop by Goodwill
just on the chance that I could find some lovely clothes for super cheap. 
My past experiences haven't always been successful,
but I'm always curious to see what different store locations have. 

Fortunately for me, today was my lucky day.
I found 5 tops for under $12.
Yay for frugal living!
It just proves that buying clothes doesn't take a lot of money.
Though scrounging around Goodwill for 45 minutes
takes diligence and perseverance.  

This was my first find because its' pattern basically screamed at
me to take it home.  I really love sleeveless sweaters and can't wait
to add it to my collection.

I was very excited to find one of these "puffy" jackets
in my size because I've always wanted one.
I believe I'm going to wear it tomorrow!

This is an Ann Taylor shirt and what I consider the creme-de-la-creme
of my shopping experience.  I know that these shirts go for much
more than what I want to pay, and are sometimes too "old-ladyish" for me. 
At first I was hesitant about the ruffles at the neckline,
but this emerald beauty is growing on me!

This is just a basic lime green long-sleeved shirt from Target. 
It's so soft and absolutely comfy. 
I believe I will pair it with my puffy jacket and wear it tomorrow.

I was also very suprised to find this flowy shirt from Maurices.
This design makes me think about sophicated tatoos, for some reason.
Nevertheless, I will gladly pair it with a pretty purple shirt.

Those are my frugal findings for the day!
