My satisfied face.  Mmmhmmmm.  I found a good one.

Sweater- Forever XXI, $5.99

Boots- Blowfish, $5.99

Flats- daniblack, $2.99, half off color of the week

Wallet- $2.99, no brand name

Me. I am.  Always.  All year.  I love the colors.  The crisp cool air.  The scarves.  The boots.  The accessories!!!  The feel of things ending to make way for new beginnings.

All of the above.

But who is ready clothing wise?

I am just a little bit closer thanks to my trip yesterday to Goodwill.

The sweater is the perfect neutral palette for me to spice up with scarves and hats and such, which I have plenty of.  I also love the sleeve style where it is loose under the armpit area.  Who doesn’t like a little extra breathing room right there? (Does anyone know what the correct term for this style is?  I’d love to know)

The boots are great because they slip easily on and off, are comfortable, and not too high of a heel.  I also have one other or blowfish shoes, they are open toed flats, that I got for about $20 at DSW a couple years ago, and I get compliments on them almost every time I wear them.  So I felt good about another blowfish purchase.

The ‘wallet’, or credit card holder, has a see through pocket for my ID on the other side, as well as a zipper pocket for change/cash.  The perfect little size.  And I saw my friend use one just like it the other night, and thought that I would like to look for one, and there it was.  Good timing as always Goodwill.

I love my new Fall Essentials.  And can’t wait for it to be just cool enough to use them.  It’s still holding strong at 90+ here in TN at the moment.

My trip to San Francisco in less than two weeks may just be the perfect time.

And…an item I passed on 😦  The right shoe was just too loose, as they were technically a size too big.  Technicalities.  Foot size shmize.

Forever XXI Ballet flats, $4.99

Heartbreaking, huh?

And, in a not so Fall manner…I may have put a cheap box of light blonde Revlon on my hair last night…

…NOT so fally…but I’m glad it turned out alright.  Not bright orange or green.  These are plusses.

I’d love to go dark for the fall/winter, as they recommend, but anytime I do, it turns a reddish brown, not just straight brown.  Someday I’ll figure it out.  For now, blonde will do.

And lastly, thanks Martyna over at spoolish.com for reminding me to look for Fall essentials, or else I may just have never found these wonderful items:)

happy Fall thrifting to all of you,

-Jaime

Are you as excited to wear scarves again as I am?

Not that I completely stopped over the summer months…
