I needed a belt to complete this look....hmm?? What's cheap, but still looks polished?

Bag and a Brooch? Shmoke and a pancake? 100 points if you can guess what movie that's from?? Maybe I will use it as a way to raffle off my next giveaway! What do u think...time for a spring break giveaway? Today was my last day of school, yipee, freedom!! Well not completely, I have to go back in a week...DANG!

Simple and small things

Blazer-DI $8, Blouse-DI $4, Leopard Heels- goodwill $5, Flares-Earnest sewn?, Vintage brooch-MIL, Belt-DI $1

I just love a good thrift find...or two...or three...keep em' comin'! I hit up some thrift shops while on vacay visiting my brother and SIL last weekend. I hit the jackpot with this grape jewel tone top and wool blazer....yummy! While I was there visiting I got to watch this live! So amazing to hear such inspirational messages. I started reflecting on what really matters in life.....I mean don't get me wrong...I love me some clothes...but I love serving others and not focusing on just me, me, me, all the time.....I know hard to believe, fashion blogger and not vain...oxymoron??

So I wanted to share with you my good deed for the day. I opened the door for a severely disabled man struggling to walk 1 foot at a time. He had a walker and was walking inch by inch with so much effort and persistence. It made me think of when M was in the hospital re-learning how to walk again, and I just had to reach out and lend a helping hand. He smiled at me and very warmly said, "thank you so much." It seems like such a small thing, but "great things are wrought through simple and small things." And afterwards, the high you get is kinda like after a good day of thrifting...but better;) What's your good deed for the day? Please leave a comment I'd love to hear your uplifting stories.....Happy Friday!!
