Mustard flowers and thrifting


 My SIL is an amazing photographer and wanted to enter some photos in a fashion photography contest.  So...we went thrifting of course (4 year old niece helped too!) and this is what we came up with!  She took me to a little mustard flower field and I felt like I was in another world, we were still close to the city but far enough away to feel the sereneness of nature.  There were ladybugs, red-winged black birds, and a few beautiful mustard flowers still in bloom.

While hard to believe, this ENTIRE outfit was thrifted!  I just feel like i'm on cloud nine when I find a complete outfit in the thrift store :)  I've been meaning to get a floppy hat for awhile now and was about to pay full price for one until I happened upon this beauty for quite a steal!  If your new to thrifting, the best piece of advice I could offer is to never give up. From one day to the next you never know what amazing little gems you are going to find!  One day you may not find a darn thing, but the next day you may find a pair of Prada heels quietly hiding inside a dusty old suitcase??  That hasn't quite happened to me yet but I'm looking forward to that day ;)  Have a beautiful monday pretty ladies!

  8. I am so amazed that this whole outfit is thrifted. I mean that dress is awesome! I love, love, love the photos. :) That is why we love thrifting! It is always exciting to find treasures that you don't have to pay that huge amount of money and still be looking gorgeous. Love this dress! I have one in the same color, but I bought it at Walmart the other day.
