a perfect shade of kudzu green
I have been enjoying this weather lately, not quite completely fall-like but everyday getting closer and closer (Although, it was still 80 degrees just a few days ago!). The evenings and the mornings though have been wonderful, perfect for yard sales.
So, two weeks ago, on one such cooler-than-summer morning, I made it to a couple of yard sales. It was a planned-out, last minute thought, like most of my yard sale outings are. Planned-out meaning, I got a newspaper on Wednesday – the only reason I buy a local paper, never mind the news! – told myself I was going, and then decided Thursday night that I had too much to do around the house Friday, so I would just stay home. Friday morning rolls around, and as my guy is leaving to work and asking me what I am doing for the day, I quickly change my mind about all of the housework I don’t want to do and say, I am going yard-saleing, can I have some money?
My problem with yard sales opposed to thrift stores, I don’t find much because I like to look for clothes. I hardly ever find my size, but every once in a while I get lucky, like I did on my last outing when I found some skirts – seems like that’s all I am writing about lately. I also found a shirt and a stadium chair for the boy, he was pretty happy about that, but he ALWAYS finds stuff he wants at yard sales. Come to think of it, he always finds stuff he wants EVERYWHERE!
About this skirt, it is lace – another favorite material of mine – and it is green – my favorite color! It was as if it was just there waiting for me to find it! I was very happy I went after all. This time of the year is a great time for yard sales; I think I should plan to go again next week, or not…

Great skirt! Fab find!
Thanks for linking up for Passion For Fashion!
Pretty! I also think it’s much harder to find something specific that fits you at a yard sale, because they have a much smaller range of clothing sizes, typically. But every once in a while you find something great!
i always have the hardest time at garage sales too, mostly because the ones in my neighborhood are usually family homes and just sell kids’ clothes haha. But that skirt is pretty- I really love that lace detailing 🙂
PS- I found you through Penniless Socialite linkup!

Finding kids’ clothes is always a win at yard sales! Aside from the color, the lace details were what drew me to the skirt. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
It’s beautiful, whoever parted with it must have either grown out of it or have too many clothes! 😀
I thought the same thing. It really is in great shape!
