I can hardly believe only 31 days remain of this year. I would say I have had quite an interesting introduction into my next decade of life. I want to remember to savor these last days and not get to caught up in the stress of it all.

These boots were in my to-donate bag in my car when I decided that they would be a perfect match for this outfit. The mid-calf height is a bit weird; I think when I bought them I figured I would just wear them with jeans. These days I prefer to wear skirts, but I think they work with the dark tights.

My favorite part about shopping at Ann Taylor and Loft is finding gems like this skirt in their super+50% off sale time. I actually think that's my favorite part about shopping in general - finding great things at a low price :). I really should learn to be a better thrifter!

This outfit is so pretty, Eek! I love the print of this skirt. I chose these tones for the designs for my next fall collection. Love how you worked these colors together.

You did a great job getting your money's worth from this skirt. It is so versatile. This year has flown by so fast!

I like the boots, so I'm glad you kept them long enough to work into this outfit.

I love that pink top, the neckline is so pretty. I love the mid-calf boots. I wish I could find a pair that didn't swim on my skinny legs.

Also, one of these days, I'm coming down there and taking you thrifting fo' real. ;D You'll never turn back once you start getting the good deals.

Yes, finding those gems is one of the best things about shopping!

I have problems with taking things out of the donate bag too... it's so bad!
