Fall is almost here, and a season change is always a great reason to buy or make new clothes. I love how the cooler weather allows me to experiment with layering different textures and patterns all while looking fabulous and staying nice and warm. Every year I have a tendency to to add more browns, taupes, grays, and blacks into my fall wardrobe, but this year I’m making a point to keep lots of beautiful colors and prints a mainstay throughout the colder months.
The brighter side of autumn..
These are just a few of the great pieces I found at the thrift store, which I will share with you in full detail next Thrifty Thursday. I apologize in advance for the jealousy you are inevitably going to feel.
When the weather starts to change, my wardrobe isn’t the only thing I like to makeover, it seems as if the entire house undergoes a bit of a transformation.
It seems like there is always room for improvement in my bedroom. I’ve been eyeing this textured bedspread at the thrift store for over 6 months, and at 2.99, I commend myself for the self-control I demonstrated in not buying it the first time around. I love the look and feel of a clean white bed, and the texture of this blanket gives a classic look a touch of modern edge, and interest. I also picked up these two beautiful blankets for the foot of the bed at about $2 a piece.
I’ve been looking for a mexican blanket for a while, and this one is amazingl! I added the yellow for an extra pop, and a bit of fall color. I had actually planned to make all new pillow cases and shams, but my busy schedule lately has hindered my design endeavors, so new blankets were the perfect quick fix for a bedroom facelift.
After all that, I still wanted MORE! Here are some fabrics I also grabbed from another thrift store a couple weeks ago. I’m hoping that leaving them out on the sewing table will give me some inspiration to rekindle my relationship with a needle and thread.
Happy Friday Friends!
Love you all.
Remember to check back on Thursday for one of my best TT’s yet..
