Cobalt & Stripes

I went thrift store shopping this weekend for the first time since I've moved down to Mississippi, and I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting to find anything good... But, boy was I wrong?!! I found lots of GREAT items!

There is a story behind the Dave Ramsey book...I have been praying to find one at a thrift store for about 4 months now, and my friend and I were about to leave the thrift store yesterday, and I remembered I didn't check the book section. So, we quickly ran back there, and lo and behold, it was right there waiting for me with a price tag of $1.59! I couldn't help but think God was showing me, He loved me, by putting all these great items in my path!

Here's my fabulous finds minus a brand new Mary Kay pink satin lipstick for 79 cents!! :)

I was really excited about finding this striped blazer, because I just bought a cobalt shirt Friday night, so the second I tried this jacket on, I knew it was meant to be paired with it!
I didn't waste any time, I wore my new cobalt shirt, blazer, and Nine West booties to church the next day!
