It is the weekend. Who does not love to be comfortable during the weekend? Of course, I pull out my go to black denim with a flannel shirt. Perfect for a fall day around town. I am all for finding deals and this post includes none other than my flannel I picked up at Goodwill for $2. While thrifting, I usually look for furniture to redo or things to craft with. However, I also take a quick look threw the clothing to see if there is anything fairly new and meets my clothing needs. This flannel shirt was barely worn and originally from H&M. By far one of my most comfortable flannels in my closet. Do you go thrift shopping?
Oh booties! These booties are two years old, but still one of my favorite go to pair of booties in my closet. I scored this pair from TJMaxx for around $40. Score!

Hope you are all having a great weekend! What are some of your favorite thrift finds?
Its Saturday and I am posting! Today I will share my love for polka dots. They are just so happy and can cheer up any outfit. Today I chose to pair my favorite polka dot shirt with my safari vest, jeans and my cognac mules. This outfit was quick, easy and I ended up loving it.
This necklace is one of my new favorite pieces of jewelry. I got it a few weeks ago from New York & Company when they were having 1/2 of jewelry. Yes please! They currently have a similar version on sale for $12!
Have you ever tried a pair of mules? This being my first pair to try, I picked these up at Forever 21 back in spring/summer since they are lower cost. They are great for the fall to help transition from summer to fall. They look great with skirts and pants.
This photo shoot also called for Lilly to be in a few pictures. She has relevance to todays post, her name. Her full name is Lilly Polkadot. I know. I know. I told you earlier I love polka dots! Hope you are all having a great start to your weekend. This weekend here in Indy is going to be perfect fall weather.
What are your plans this weekend?

Last week my husband and I enjoyed some fun time at the Indiana State Fair. It is always a good time to enjoy fair foods and the outside enviroment to round out the summer. Its always fun to check out the huge tractors on display for purchase. I think I found my new ride? We also checked out some of the 4H projects that students work really hard on all year to bring to the Indiana State Fair.
I have always loved these horse stables at the fair
This was the first night we went for FREE day!
We went twice in a two week period. Once for FREE day in which we cut out the free entry coupon in the newspaper. Score on a freebie! We were only at the fair an hour or so due to it being a weekday after work. The other night we went was $2 Tuesday! Entry into the fair was only $2 per person. Also each food vendor has a $2 item making some of your favorites only $2. This is n a deal since it usually cost an adult $10 for entry at the gate and most food is double/triple the $2 cost. I would also recommend $2 Tuesdays for anyone with kids, I believe there is a $2 deal for the fair rides as well.
The second night we went it was very chilly outside. It definitely did not feel like August weather. Below you will see the outfit I threw together for comfort to walk the fair and stay a little warm since it was chilly.
