Thrifty Spring Finds

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! 

These Irish eyes are smiling because the weather here is gorgeous-almost 
80 degrees with green grass and daffodils popping up (in case you're 
wondering, every other St. Pat's day I can remember wearing sweaters 
and seeing snow outside my windows...) 

Today I wanted to show you some thrift store finds I pulled together 
for a cute little spring outfit. I am excited because this spring, after losing
twenty pounds since last spring, I am two sizes smaller! 

(I plan on doing my official weight loss post with before and after pics
 once I actually hit my goal-only a few stubborn pounds to go! )

So, here you have my black H&M cotton dress, only $7--I've been
searching for something like this for a while-can't believe I found it so cheap! 
(I love how slimming and comfy it is).

And a cute little flower brooch (no I didn't make this one!) with the 
tag still on from New York and Co.: my price: $2 

Champagne ballet flats barely worn (I washed them anyway!)
for only $3

Besides the leggings and jewelry, everything  I'm wearing came from Saver's. 
Total cost: $12

Hope you enjoyed my spring "fashion show"--
(and yes, I'm smiling even though I'm sleep deprived from newborn feedings!) 

Thanks for visiting ReMadeSimple today! Stay tuned for more thrifty finds later next week! 

Linking up with these parties.

  2. We are getting a Savers near my office.. I can't wait! Your outfit is cute!

    1. Thank you, Laura! No, it isn't easy to lose weight and I've tried and failed in the past but accountability with friends among smaller portions and keeping my hands busy with projects has really helped me!
