H&M skirt: Goodwill (South Side Pittsburgh) $2.99

 Today's outfit is made up of several items that I thrifted recently. The rockin' corset top came from my big haul at Volunteers of America for National Thrift Shopping Day and the adorable gingham skirt came from the Goodwill we went to on our trip to Pittsburgh! I put the top and the skirt together first but it felt a little too flashy- if you know what I mean?! So I added the grandpa sweater and the nerd glasses and it created the perfect balance! P.S. The glasses aren't real- just for fun!

I had a great time at IKEA yesterday! I was primarily going to help my sister-in-law shop for her new house but of course I found some fun things for myself! I'm most excited about my new rolling rack!
 Here's what I got:

clockwise from top left: $1.99 frames, blue napkins, scissors, $2.99 glass bowl, $9.99 lamp, runner rug, rolling rack
