My kids attended Vacation Bible School this week.  What’s a mom to do with 3 hours to herself but go thrifting with her thrifting bestie!  Besides camping dresses and other absolute essentials, my favourite find of the week was from Goodwill!!

Striped maxi dress perfection for $7!!!!

The stripes are navy and the other colour is a slightly peachy off-white.  The tie hits the right spot, the length is perfect on me and it is surprisingly forgiving!  Naturally, I chose it for my first cast-off OOTD!

The cast is off, but I still have bandages and toes that look like cocktail weiners so I abandonned what was left of my pride and put on a sock.

The $5 adjustable Rockports are about all I can wear for now.

Obviously this dress would look great with any necklace or a scarf, but today I chose to accessorize with a cat.

On a scale of 1 to 10 of Nicole-ness, this dress and outfit is a 9.5!!!

I’m heading to the wild tomorrow, hopefully with some Kelowna wine tours and 10 or so books thrown in for good measure!  I’ll let you know how my camping dresses turn out and *of course* keep track of all my vacation thrifting!  In the meantime, enjoy the trio of posts and follow along on Instagram and Twitter for vacation adventures!  (This momma aint got time to do Snapchat!)  Happy summering!

    Thanks for the health update!  Glad your foot is healing and you can go camping without that leg thingy….Beautiful dress!  Have a great time away with your family and enjoy God’s good creation.

    • Thank you! We certainly did! Most impressive were the massive waterfalls – peace like a river… I love that vision of what true peace looks like! Hope you’re having a wonderful summer!
