MINI PENNY: The Long and the Short of It

The Long and the Short of It

I love a good thrift day. The last Wednesday of every month is Ohio Thrift's 50% day — and normally I don't venture to go out into the crowds, but today I decided to give it a try. After a heaping cart of goodies, I narrowed it down to a few items. This dress ended up being $1.50! Great, right?

I think my favorite find of the day, though, has to be this necklace. It was living in one of the glass cases and just called to me. One of the employees was nice enough to take a break from their mile-long line to let me see it for a moment — and once I held it and felt the weight, I had to have it. I "splurged" on it at $7, but heck... I am just in love with it. This specific thrift store is really getting good at their jewelry game. Recently I bought an awesome Flying Whale brooch from the same store that I adore.

And to add even more excitement to my day, I'm really in love with today's portrait. When I picked Geoff up from work, we chose a spot just behind our store near some rusty stair doors. It was shaded with a peak of sunlight coming in from the trees. I really love the highlight of my face! And for those of you who are wondering, the lip color is NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo! I'm really into matte everything this season.

I'm creeping closer and closer to my 100th outfit post. It's crazy to think that I haven't missed a day yet! So much thanks all around. :)
