New Thrift Finds- My Favorite Fall Trends

First let me say, I feel like a bad blogger...not only have I lacked in posting this summer but I've missed out on reading up on all my favorites in the blog-o-sphere. So I'm sorry for not being more up to date with everyone, and I know that this summer has been busy for everyone. I really just have to make better use of my time...the heat makes me so lazy!!! Onwards...

What I have been doing this summer is a lot of thrift shopping. Yes, the economy has gotten to me, as it has everyone, so I have been trying to really hard to buy things that I'll wear, not just because it's inexpensive. So, with the fall season approaching, I tried to keep some of the up-coming trends in mind and it's clear that camel and red was the direction I had in mind this past weekend...

Clockwise from the top...
1) Huge grey tote. I'm planning on using this and only this for my getaway this weekend. (Wish me luck!) Pajamas, a few shorts and tees, minimal makeup and one or two pairs of shoes and I should be set! A short family visit and relaxation, I can't tell you how much I need this and I'm so looking forward to it!

2) Simple red heels. A much needed work staple for fall.

3) Martin and Osa top. It's a little sheer but it has a sort of thermal texture to it, perfect for layering with a cardigan and jeans.

4) My find of the day...Ferragamo flats! ($10!!!) They have never been worn and they're my size! I even had to peel off the Neiman Marcus sticker. Thank you thrift Gods!

5) Gap silk, pleated skirt. I've already altered this and it was not an easy job. I plan on wearing it with the Ferragamo flats, a camel top and gold jewelry, but now that I'm looking at it, I could easily pair it with some tall black boots. Hmmm, maybe to work tomorrow...

Close up of the flats. They make me very, very happy!

The heat has only just hit Texas (100+ degrees the past few days!) and I'm dreaming of fall. What trends are you looking forward to this next season?

Those shoes are adorable! I'm in the same financial boat: if I want anything for the rest of the summer it has to be inexpensive and something I will REALLY wear. And the Gap skirt is really cute too! Good finds, J!

and I know what you mean about "buying just because it's inexpensive"... happens to me all the time at Asos clearance sales and thrift shops. I'm better now! I like the camel+red direction you're going..I usually don't go for gap but that skirt immediately caught my eye in the picture.
