Perfect Picnic

Top: Thrifted, $2 // Shorts: Courtesy of 80's Purple // Shoes: Thrifted, $1.50 // Necklace: JCPenney, $10 // Ring: JCPenney, $10

After a rather lengthy hiatus, I went shopping for three hours on Friday. After all that browsing, I only ended up buying two shirts and a pair of shoes at Goodwill and two rings at JCPenney (my favorite destination for costume jewelry). At first I lamented the time I had wasted, but after only a few days, I've worn most of the items multiple times. My new conclusion is that I've become a more discerning shopper, so I walk away with smaller but better hauls. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

I sported a couple of my fresh finds -- the colorful blouse and perfectly coordinating ring -- for a picnic with friends on Saturday evening. My shorts from last year were a bit snug, but nothing a couple glasses of wine couldn't fix. It was ideal.

Gorgeous top! And although I always think you look cute I'm really liking your hair right now.

Wine fixes a lot of things, doesn't it? :)
