Thrift shopping: dressed up, dressed down.

The splendour of the blossoms have come, trees and shrubs garbed in delightful colours. Northern Gold Forsythia has prolific yellow flowers, the same shade as in my blouse that I bought in a thrift shop in Seattle.

The blouse is a slightly peplum style with bell sleeves. Its pieced together with lace, chiffon and sheer fabric, in colours of orange, beige, brown and northern gold, just like the blossoms. The little orange buttons are covered with fabric.

Dressed down with brown corduroys for a casual country road walk

Dressed up with a handkerchief skirt (also thrifted) to go dancing

I love it when something I buy goes with something I already have, especially when I didnt even know it would.The colours in the skirt match the colours of this blouse. Theres a subtle leopard pattern in this print and so I wore my animal print necklace, made in Canada.

Whats for dinner?We recently invested in a zucchini spiralizer, so I was happy to find this recipe on Susans blog ~ a Little Sage.

Bon Appetite!❤ carmenLinkups: Visible Monday Turning heads Tuesday Jersey GirlFiled under: Dress Up – Dress Down, Fashion, flowers, Nature, Photography, Spring, Vegetarian/Vegan Lifestyle Tagged: a little sage, dress up – dress down, nature, Northern Gold Forsythia, photography, spring, spring blossoms, thrifted fashion, thrifting, vegan, Visible Monday, zucchini
