Today, I drove for the first time since surgery! It was another step on the road back to normalcy.

Today’s outfit was another example of frugal fashion — a look for under $25.


I found this striped dress at a local Cape May County thrift shop. It’s comfortable and casual, and will probably get a lot of wear this summer.


I hesitated about whether to show full-length photos but, after all, I’m going to have to live with this scar for the rest of my life. “I yam what I yam”, as Popeye once said!


I’ve had this necklace for a while but couldn’t figure out what to wear it with. I don’t usually wear such big jewelry. It seemed like just the right fit for this dress.

Version 2

Red earrings, above, and bracelet, below, gave a nice pop of color to the outfit.

Version 3

Later in the day, it was chilly, so I added my white denim jacket.


What I wore:

Love, Fire striped dress ($4.00 thrifted)
Ann Taylor LOFT denim jacket ($8.00 thrifted)
Necklace, earrings and bracelet ($8.56 from Thrifty Treasures jewelry subscription box)
