To Have and Have Not.

Plaid Pea Coat: Thrifted (.50 cents last summer!)
Grey Pleated Skirt: Thrifted.
White Bead Necklace: Stolen from mom!
Black T-Strap Shoes: Target.
Red Bow Headband: Claire's.

Hello everyone!

This is just the outfit I wore on Friday. I really quite liked it and somewhat felt like Lauren Bacall in it. Well, maybe that's just my imagination and I only wish I looked like Lauren Bacall ;) I thrifted this plaid coat back in July and it's my first time wearing it! Ah, I love when you thrift something out of season and when the right season comes along to wear the piece, it feels like you just bought something brand new. Unfortunately and ironically enough, it was the hottest day of the week in a week of cold and rainy days. Why does it seem like I never dress for the right weather...?

Today was quite a busy day for me actually. I went out and did some browsing at some thrift stores, and then this afternoon my sister had her birthday party! Her actual birthday isn't until Wednesday (she'll be seven!), but today we had a little birthday party for her at Chuck 'E Cheese. Ah, the joys of being a little kid. When I was little I always wanted a birthday party at McDonald's. The kids got to write on the windows with markers and got to play with Ronald McDonald. Then, the birthday girl or boy always got a "special" happy meal toy and all the other kids were jealous, haha Sadly, I never got a McDonald's birthday party. But hey, I'm reliving my childhood dreams through my little sister. A Chuck 'E Cheese party is almost as good as a McDonald's party ;)

With much love, Lauren.
