I didn’t get my Common Threads Challenge post up yesterday, so want to do that first. This is a challenge by several bloggers to choose five pieces from your wardrobe and wear at least one of them every day this month. You can see my first week here, and my second week here.
I don’t have five outfits this week since I was a bit under the weather and just hunkered down at home. And the one day I wore my red jacket and blue jeans, I forgot to take a photo! But I did manage to wear my silver tee shirt one day with a pair of burgundy ankle pants bought on clearance from White House Black Market last year.
And my orange sneakers paired with a green tunic and floral jacket (both thrifted). I’ve been into the tunic/leggings look lately. I think I may be really too short for it, but I love the look on other people and it’s so easy (and comfy)!
I’ve been pulling out some of my longer necklaces for fall. I tend to use the long necklaces because I love the look of a long piece, and just can’t get into wearing scarves. I love the way they look on other people, but just can’t get the hang of them myself!
And today, I wore both the ankle pants and sneakers with an olive tee shirt and tan cardigan, both thrifted. I just liked the way the cardigan ties at the neckline.
We popped into Cape May to stock up on some things before all of the stores close for the winter. Most importantly, I wanted to get some butterscotch peanut butter from The Cape May Peanut Butter Company. It is the most amazingly delicious peanut butter! And the town was all dressed up for Halloween!

I have a busy weekend ahead, with good weather for yard saling tomorrow and lots of singing to do both with my quartet and chorus. This past week was the yearly Sweet Adelines international competition, and the quartet championship was won by a group of ladies from my region, so I’ll leave you with a link to their video. If you like good singing, you won’t be sorry you clicked on it!
