Thursdays are so much more exciting than they ever used to be. I look forward to writing this post all week–I just hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them! :)
Today is an especially fabulous Thursday as it’s my mom’s birthday! (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!) For some reason I thought that I had missed it… I spent all day yesterday thinking that it was the 31st. I tried calling my mom three times last night but I couldn’t get through, and I went to bed feeling like the worst daughter ever as I hadn’t wished my mother a happy birthday.
So, I called this morning in utter shame… only to have my dad laugh at me and tell me that her birthday was today. Moral of the story: I’m still a good daughter. haha
I actually had time to get out and go shopping this week! It was so nice… I just browsed and took my time, and I found two things that I absolutely love.
I have had the same light black dress coat for 10 years, and it was Peeah’s before it was mine. I’ve always liked it–it’s very simple and looks great with work clothes.
Sadly, as the jacket is approaching it’s 15th birtrhday, it’s looking a little worse for the wear. I’ve already repaired holes on almost every seam, and the lining has been absolutely destroyed. It’s ripped and just doesn’t look very nice. I’ve been shopping for a replacement for the past little while, and this week I found it! I give you my new black spring coat!
Voila! I really like it. It’s in fabulous shape, and I love that it’s belted.
And that it only cost me $8. WIN!
I also saw some really cute shoes that I just had to have. Confession: I love polka dots. Love them. So when I saw these navy polka dotted wedges, they practically leapt into my card.
Aren’t they cute? I have a cute navy button up dress that I think they will be perfect with! They are incredibly comfortable, and they were only $6 at Value Village.
So, those were my big finds this week! Next week I’ll debut Dress #2… I’m excited!!
