Value Village was having a 30% off women’s wear sale yesterday, so I quickly
pawned off arranged for Rowan to spend the day with my Mom so I could give it a little looky-loo. I didn’t find much, but I did OK for a last minute jaunt.
Fist off, I have been keeping my peepers peeled for a pair of ‘mom jeans’ that I could convert into some shorts and I fiiiiiiiinally found some. Mom jeans are totally a thing right now, btw. And surprisingly flattering! I think it’s the high waist. Anyway, I almost considered just keeping these as is. But alas, they were destined for cutoff greatness.
They are legit retro and have multicolored Wool insets on the back and in one of the front pockets. So cool.
I love layering shorts over leggings/tights in cooler weather. Cali people can’t have all the year-round shorts-wearing fun! I may be living in these for awhile. Yes, even in -13. Although I may need to layer up with some thigh high wool socks.
Next, I found a cute little wooden tool caddy that I repurposed as an organizer for our master bathroom.I also got a couple of basic long sleeve tees for me and some overall shorts for Jasper, but I’ll spare you the photographic details. I really really REALLY want to make the pilgrimage to the West Kelowna VV one of these days. It is MASSIVE and new and I just really want to experience it. There is a Bibles For Missions thrift shop there as well, which is usually a great spot to find vintage goodies. Day trip anyone??
Happy Thursday! I had a nightmare yesterday that involved not having enough chicken wings to cook for wing night, so I may stock up on extra today… just in case!
