A Day of Departures

No, I wasn’t actually going anywhere, like, on a plane, but today was a day of departing from the norm.


Departure #1 :

I’m wearing pink instead of my usual black.

When I came across this Lily Pulitzer skirt while thrifting in Ohio and it was only $3.58…I thought I would give the color pink, a try.

This skirt was SO hard for me to style! I finally decided to just put it with a basic white tee, of which I had none.



Departure #2 :

I shopped at Walmart for my basic white tee shirt.


At $2.97 each, I bought one in black too.


Departure #3 :

I tied a knot in the tee shirt and…

it kinda looked cute.

Departure #4 :

I switched out my everyday handbag, which I very rarely do.

Which leads to my final departure of the day…


Departure #5 :

Agreeing to meet someone I have never met, at a bar, for a drink.

Lisa, from Breath of Fresh Flair  was in town and reached out to me, in hopes of meeting me IRL.


So of course I said YES!

We talked non-stop for two hours about all things blogging, thrifting, traveling and interior design.

Lisa is an amazing and talented interior designer and knows her way around a thrift store. Next time she’s in town, I know what we’ll be doing!


Hurry back Lisa!

Question of the day : Do you ever depart from the norm?

  1. And don’t you consider this a huge success, Darlene!! I love the pink skirt and the knot in the t-shirt!!
    And how fun to meet IRL!! It’s so enjoyable and you look incredible!! Of course, I’m biased because #BlackIsNotMyFriend……haha!!

    1. I do love Toronto. Come to Vegas and stay near me. I can hook you up with a ‘locals’ discount at the beautiful Red Rock Resort and Casino. We’ll spend the whole time thrifting and going to Happy Hours! We don’t have to go near the Strip…
