Educated Guess

Top: J.Crew ($10-ish)
Belt: J.Crew Outlet ($19)
Skirt: Vintage Thrift ($5)
Cardigan: LOFT (swapped)
Thigh Highs: c/o ModCloth
Clogs: c/o ModCloth
I had a surprise day off yesterday (though well deserved considering the hours I worked on Wednesday), and it was beautiful outside. New England has been shrouded in rain and clouds for the past week, and the sun finally came out and treated us to a warm-ish day. Warm being completely relative, it was only 50*f. For most of the day I had that great feeling of having the day off when everybody else is at work, that is until I realized that it was Veterans Day and everybody else had the day off too. Boo. All was not lost however, I made a trip to Savers for some mid-week thrifting (the best kind) and discovered they were having a sale: I got four pairs of shoes and a book about cats for $16!

It's always nice to have the day off and be able to utilize what's in my closet. I found this cute skirt last weekend when Chris and I went thrift shopping, I loved the buttons down the front and the interwoven colors. Perfect paired with some clogs and the most amazing cape ever.

Are you excited it's Friday? I am so excited to sleep in tomorrow and do nothing!
Happy Weekend!

That skirt is so cute! I completely forgot yesterday was a holiday - I didn't get it off, but ended up being home sick. Now I hope my boss doesn't think I was just trying to skip work because of the holiday. Oops!

So would you be willing to share some of your thrift locations? I don't have nearly as much luck around here as you do!

Oh there is this beautiful cape again, I so love its classic and military style! Together with the skirt it makes the outfit look so British :)

Yep can't wait to sleep in and just hang around tomorrow too! have a great weekend!

I love saver's sales!!!! I got up early yesterday and went to not one, but TWO in my state! I ended up buying a ton of stuff (4 pairs of shoes, 4 sweaters, jeans, a vintage shirt, 2 dresses...) but the total came to about $50. I was so happy.

The cape is fantastic! Is it suede? It looks like it may be.

This outfit is gorgeous! And man, that cape! *ded* I want to call it a cloak of elvenkind, these pictures make me think of foresty creatures and such. And D&D I guess? Ah, marriage. It's opened it whole new worlds to me! LITERALLY.
Whoa, got off track there, sorry. :P

I really love that cape you have on in these pictures. I was looking for one, but then realized it wouldn't work too well with the backpack I carry for school. Anyways, lovely pictures as always,
