In search of the most eclectic wardrobe ever – the kids and I went to our local Goodwill last night. I’ve been on the lookout for a spring/fall weight jacket, which is getting to be a rather pressing issue around here. After all, it’s October in Wisconsin, and the early mornings are a bit … shall we say nippy? … to walk to work. I’ve also been on the lookout for bedclothes, as what I’m currently wearing to sleep in is … well, let’s just say I’ve found my feet tangled in my sleep shorts in the morning on more than one occasion.
With it getting cooler in the night as well as the morning, I’m gonna need more heavyweight jammy pants, too. The sweat pants I was using are now doubling as a cover for my computer chair to protect it slightly against claws.
The fun part of a Goodwill adventure is always pawing through the racks….the entire store is an epic treasure hunt…especially the clothes. Some stuff is outright adorable, and some is ‘I can’t believe someone actually WORE this out of the house!’-able.
Glassware is another place I love to search the racks…but really, the entire store, from apple figurines to zebra-print socks – is rummage-able.
So – yesterday. Went to Goodwill. And the winners are:
In the ‘Loud and Proud’ category:
In the “I can’t believe this exists” category:
In the “I can’t believe I actually TRIED this on” category:
In the “How did I live without these” category:
And, yes, my goal was accomplished – I found 2 pair of jammy pants in patterns that fit my personal style, as well as this totally cool denim jacket.
