your love is a melody.

sorry for the absence yesterday, loves!  I drove down in the early afternoon to my guy's new place, and since it was his payday,we  ran all sorts of errands and got dinner (as per tradition).  while grocery shopping, he bought all of the ingredients to make his amazing peach cobbler, along with some coconut milk ice cream for me.  it's so very tasty, and I ate quite a bit last night... probably too much...

it's great seeing him get all settled in, and I really love the feel of his new place.  and, here's what I wore...

top: hand-me-down
skirt: thrifted
hat: h&m
belt: hand-me-down
boots: thrifted

I apologize for the poor quality of these photos.  I'm not sure what happened.  my man shot these photos for me (in a Walmart parking lot, of all places!) as we were out and about yesterday.

so, my favorite thrift store is only about ten minutes from my house.  it's called Liberty Thrift, and every cent they make goes to charity.  there are even signs in their dressing rooms that say "if you shoplift from us, you're stealing from the needy."  I always have a little chuckle when I spot those...  anyway, everything in Liberty Thrift is usually a dollar, unless it has been deemed a "boutique item," and usually those are just items that follow more recent trends.  when I was shopping there this past Tuesday, everything in the store was 50% off!  as this skirt was definitely not on the "boutique" side of the store, it was only 50 cents!   I was overjoyed.  I ended up purchasing three skirts, a vest, four shirts, and curtains for $7.50.  I'd have to say that's a record, even for me!  I'm sure all of those lovely items will be making an appearance here on the blog soon.

I am now eating another helping of peach cobbler and coconut milk ice cream... I think I have a problem.

I hope you all are having a thrilling Thursday!  xo, kelseylee.
