I spent less than 30 dollars, yet I will feel like a million bucks.


Preppies!

I had a nice leisurely weekend.  I hope yours was just as enjoyable!!  It was the 10 mile garage sale days locally, and I had many opportunities for deal scoring!  I would be lying if I said that things went exactly as planned, but hey that’s life right?  My dad accompanied me on my “fishing expedition” and…

 My dad is the type that would rather stand in a thunderstorm on a cellphone with a metal umbrella than go shopping.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned the story of when I was 12 and we went to the mall only to go to the vitamin store and leave.  Did you even know malls had vitamin stores? I didn’t.

Anyways, father decided to give Garage Sale Days a free pass, he was on a mission for a few tools and a bike.  He was half successful, finding some cheap shovels, rakes, and a saw.. but that’s not why you’re here: so let me enlighten you on what I found.

AWESOME preppy deal number 1

The Ralph Lauren Oxford Button Down

If you consider yourself a prep, it is absolutely mandatory that you own a button down.  I was lucky enough to find this essential piece of prep in lavender for TWO DOLLARS.  The iconic brand and flattering style were enough to win me over in a heart beat.

How I plan to wear it:

The classic collar would look absolutely adorbs underneath a cardigan.  I know it is difficult to think of layering in this heat, so also a simple pair of pearls would do.  I can’t wait to tuck this blouse into high-waisted shorts!

AWESOME preppy deal number 2

The Green and White Checked Vintage Housecoat

Another TWO dollar steal, it’s hard to believe!!  This piece was undoubtedly a hit in the 50’s, it’s brand-less and size-less, but it is all mine!!  I am going to bring it to a seamstress and invest in getting the waist taken in, but I absolutely adore this coat.

Whether it is hiding my most casual attire, or a sundress: this spring coat looks fantastic.  I am hoping that the heat stays away for just a few days so that I have the chance to wear it!!

Awesome preppy deal number 3

The Limited Black Maxi Dress

The final TWO dollar deal of the day can be dressed up or down.  It has so much potential, and I couldn’t possibly resist!  I would argue that when paired with the proper jacket this dress can be used during any time of year.

I would be most comfortable sporting this hot little number with a blazer or cardigan.  It is rather form fitting so I will also use my best friend Spanx (;

Other fantastic purchases (at the garage sales) made by yours truly were:

A Kitten Stroller (judge me)

A hot pink GAP strapless dress

High-heeled Loft Pajama Pants

Floral Loft Pajama Pants

A beige Loft cardigan

I spent less than 30 dollars, yet I will feel like a million bucks pushing Clementine around the block in his kitten stroller, wearing any of these outfits.

(Okay, not the pajama pants)
