My daughter's first home visit from college was accompany by a small list of needs and wants.
The area where her college is located is a bit cooler than here during the Fall/Winter season, it can get down to the lower 50's to the lower 30's and the she didn't had a good winter jacket.
This is the part were my blogger friends from very cold areas are probably saying: "what? you need a winter jacket for below 50 degrees? Are you serious?"
Yes! Please remember that we are use to 80-90 degrees so 50-30 is freezing for us!
This is us making our way into one of the largest mall in South Florida, The Sawgrass Mall.
I lived in this mall from the time my girls were in the 5th grade until now with my youngest one still in high school.
This was and still is the place that I took them and their friends to eat, to see movies, to shop and to play in the Game Works (an giant arcade place).
This is a make believe walking or maybe a super-hero take off!
At Berlington Coat Factory looking for the cheapest and craziest accessories to go with the coats.
We got a lion and a zebra critter-hats for the girls to keep their heads, ears and unique brains warm.
This a candy store by the Forever 21 store in the middle of the mall.
The girls love Forever 21 and I love candy so it work out great; they got clothes and I got sweets.
There were a lot more of this magnets but this collection was my favorite.
Loving the Mel one and the Weight Watches one.
Everywhere you look there were all kinds of colors, shapes and form of candies and sweets.
You get some candy and get to do some reading at the same time.
This is by the store entrance.
Somehow this dress looks like a shorter version of something I wore back in 1984.
This one of the 3 food courts around the mall.
It has many choices of food and fast foods from all around the world.
We decided to go for Chinese-Cajun and my oldest daughter paid the bill.
The food was very good but I do hate these foam thingy that we were eating out of.
There was a third food plate that got out of the photo's range.
For this family outing I wore:
Old yellow cardigan from Target.
One of my two faithful and versatile white tanks.
Yellow Gap skirt, thrifted two months ago.
My also very old, Penny Loves Kenny sandals.
Necklaces from various art fairs.
Bracelets from youngest daughter and from my local Indian store.
Rings: one from Peru (the larger one) and the other from a Dollar Store.
This lovely bag was in the $1.99 container at the Ft Lauderdale Salvation Army.
It has a tag around the back of the string that says: The Wayuu Taya Foundation 1973.
And after doing some research I find out that its made by South American Indians and that this foundation assists with the improvement of the South American Indigenous people's lives while respecting their cultural belief and that it was created by the model and actress Patricia Velazquez whom I remember seeing in the cover of magazines and in movies like The Mommy.
Finding pieces of clothing or accessories like this is one of the reasons I enjoy my thrifting adventures so much and the fact that was less than $2.00 is also enjoyable.
Have a fantastic week,
