I was working on a 'thrift trip magic' post for today, but unfortunately the photos didn't turn out like I would have liked. What a shame too, because I shopped more this past week than I've shopped in the past two months combined! I'm excited because I got lots of great fall pieces for under $100. I think I ended up with something like 20 items – dresses, jackets, glasses, collars, headpieces – and if I can get around to it this weekend, I'll give the photos a second try.

One of the few photos that turned out from my 'thrift trip magic' attempts was the one of the sweater I picked up at an estate sale on Friday. I actually skipped French class to go to this sale because the preview email looked so good! I'm glad I did too, because an Aztec print sweater has been at the top of my fall wish list for a while now. This one is even better than I could have imagined. It's big and cozy, and the perfect thing to curl up in once the weather gets real cold. Plus, I love that the sleeves flare out at the bottom!

I had to go get some swimsuit photos for a project that I'm working on – I'm lucky it was warm that day – and this is what I wore on my way to the river's beach. I really didn't put much thought into the outfit since it was just a cover-up for my swimsuit, but I'm glad Corey took a photo of it. I actually like how insanely quirky it is!

That's such a gorgeous sweater and for a moment I thought the petal hat was a wig! I've been looking for aztec knitwear everywhere and I just can't seem to get a hold of it.

Oh Starr, you look amazing in that outfit, you look like a saucy French synchronized swimmer who is about to go to the pool and your flower hat would be your lavish swimcap and your sweater and skirt the impish cover-up... maybe I'm just delirious from too much abundant French delicacies. Or maybe your outfit really is all of that!

love,
Jenny
