Skirt? Thrifted Shoes? DvF (here, can only find expensive link) Tank? VS (here) Clutch? Thrifted
Necklaces? J. Crew and thrifted Bracelets? All over

It was my intention to go garage saling this weekend. I had a free morning and I was ready to go.
I grew up going every second Saturday. One week, my oldest brother and I would go with our parents (in the big brown station wagon of classiness...) and the next Saturday, we would stay home and babysit our little brother.  Years later I discovered that sleeping in on a Saturday morning is the most wonderful thing of life and the garage sales took a backseat to not setting an alarm.
But I know full well how much good stuff is out there and how cheaply it can be had when people don't want to schlep the contents of their garage sale back into the house at noon. Lately I've been feeling the twinge of missing out on all kinds of good stuff and so, it was with determination, that I set my alarm.
When I woke up Saturday morning, it was pouring rain. I went back to bed. I made an honest effort but the weather obviously knew I needed my sleep. There's always next Saturday. And as long as thrift store are selling silk sequin skirts with beaded hems, I'm pretty preoccupied...

In my country we have a saying, don't act against the spirit of mother nature. When it rains, it's better go back to sleep :)
Anw, love the skirt. It looks great on you.

Such a beautiful skirt!!! I do enjoy garage sales, too...but compared to the thrift store, they're so much more work! Next weekend I'm planning on going to the flea market...at least lots of vendors will be in the same spot.

Sleep on sister. Sleep on. It'll be at their next driveway schlepping. And in the mean time, this skirt is FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC.

That skirt is fricking amazing. And I love how you styled it. Leave the garage sales to the crazies who someone manager to drag themselves out of bed early on the weekend. Thrift stores clearly love you.

Love that fourth slightly overhead shot! I always go garage sale/fleamarketing with mom on the weekends I'm visiting my parents. Even if I don't buy anything, I just like hanging out with her.

This outfit is SO amazing! Those shoes are probably my favorite!

Oh garage saling; it is probably the only thing that I will wake up early for on a Saturday morning. My mom and older brother go with me; it is so much fun! I got an AMAZING sequined sweater in a free box. It was a good Saturday morning.

Good luck on your yardsaling adventures!
