I'm a big fan of surprises. At least, I am when they're good surprises. Being attacked by an angry swarm of bees as I walked to the bus stop after work yesterday? Not a good surprise. (Okay, to be fair, I wasn't really attacked. And they didn't seem too angry. But there was a swarm of bees in the intersection yesterday, and it was pretty strange. And scary. Pretty sure that many beestings would kill anyone. Anyway. Where was I? Oh yeah. Surprises.) Finding a package on my doorstep from a certain amazing blog-friend-turned-actual-friend was quite the pleasant surprise, on the other hand.


Yup, my gal Sydney sent me a lovely package with three skirts, two tanks (one of which I'm wearing right now) and three blouse-y type shirts. And THEY ALL FIT. Even the button down shirt, which is crazy cause those things almost never fit me right. You guys, I think I found my clothes soul mate.


Syd always sends the cutest cards in her packages, too. Seriously girl, where do you get those? Adorbs.

Anyway, pics of my coffee table wearing clothes is no fun. So here are some of me wearing clothes.



shirt: secondhand
tank: Target
jeans: Silver via Macy's
flats: Payless
necklace: gifted

I also recently got an ENORMOUS pile of clothes from my friend Allory, who cleaned out her closet and generously let me haul away the discards. The stuff that I didn't want (because it didn't fit, was out of style, was just workout clothes, or whatever) I crammed into three (three!!) garbage bags for Goodwill. There were, however, several SWEET pairs of shoes and booties that I loved, but can't wear because they're sizes 6 or 7 and I wear like a 9. Okay, a 10. So anyone out there with tiny feet want some cute booties, flats or calf-height boots?

Anyway, I kept about a dozen shirts from Allory, plus some shorts/dresses/skirts. So now that there is a TON of pre-loved clothing in my closet that wasn't technically thrifted, I'm going to start crediting them as "secondhand" in outfit posts. Schweet.


  1. yayyy! I am so so so glad that you like the stuff I sent over!! I'm a happy girl right now, a big smile is exactly what I needed today!

  2. Yay! So exciting!! Receiving packages are definitely the best - looks like you got some great stuff! Can't wait to see how you style 'em.
