Autumn Treats

Do you ever have wardrobe recycling regrets? Have you ever wanted to climb into the giant mailbox of a donation bin and rescue your item?
This skirt was almost a giveaway regret. It was thiiiis close to being donated, but then I had a change of heart. Why would I give this away? Let me count the reasons:
1) It's seven years old.
2) The thing is so lightweight that the slightest wind sends it skyward (note to self: wear cute undies).
3) I hadn't worn it in over a year.
Why did I save it?
1) I have a crazy emotional connection to it because I bought it in Australia.
2) It IS cute.
3) The cardigan acts like an anchor, keeping it on my thighs where it belongs.

Skirt: One Teaspoon  (somewhere in Sydney, Australia, 2005)
Shirt: Kersh (Moments, Truro)
Cardigan: Dynamite (Halifax)
Belt: Forever 21 (South Portland)
Leggings: Gift
Necklace: H&M (San Francisco)
Boots: Steve Madden (Toronto)

Polka dots are my favorite manicure!

I'm linking up with longdistanceloving for another Fridays Fancies post on autumn treats. What expensive bakery did this big boy come from?

Viola.... the Superstore cupcake in Triple Chocolate. I snagged this sweetness for a mere $2. It was worth all 200 pennies and then some. I classify this as an all season treat, not just for autumn. I have yet to get a Starbucks red cup (I'll have to remedy that soon...)

What are some of your favorite fall treats?

I LOVE your polka dot nails. I totally related to this post because I love to purge my closet on a regular basis and then some event will arise where I rue my choice to rid myself of a certain item. C'est la vie. My favorite seasonal treat is shortbread make with rice flour, and a tall, non-fat, quarter sweet, no whip peppermint mocha with an extra shot. Too much information I know haha.
