Yard Sale Couture

Don't hate us because we're beautiful!! 

The day started at a nippy 35 degrees. I had on khakis with legging underneath, a long sleeve tee, a long sleeve shirt, a jacket, a scarf, a hat, and gloves. I was COLD! But this is Georgia. If you don't like the weather, give it five minutes. It wasn't long until I got rid of the gloves, then the coat. A little later, the leggings had to go. By the end of the day, I had my pants rolled up above my knees and had pulled a sleeveless shirt from the sale pile and put it on! Only in Georgia can you get a sunburn in November!

Lise started the day much like any other day, with a Coke and a smile. Who doesn't?! She started out with a sweater and 2 long sleeve shirts and by the end of the day had her pants rolled up and a short sleeve tee!

Coke makes everything better!
I'm getting my Glee audition ready! (Don't you love the old school Tretorns?!)

End of the day
I told you it got hot!

 We had a good day, though. We laughed that we actually MADE money together rather than SPEND money together!  We sold a lot of our stuff, practically gave some away and donated the rest to Goodwill!

How has your weekend been?


  1. I Love the pictures. It is so funny to see us all bundled up and a few hours later we were ready to strip down!!! But, how cool that we made money together....that we now need to go spend?

  2. Oh, and if I was looking for cast memebers for GLEE, I would totally pick you.

  3. You ladies look great....looks like a fun day:)

    Stop by and say Hello ♥
    I’m an MTV Style Blogger of the Week!!!

  4. OK... wait! What!?!?! You were selling your stuff, Lise!?!? And didn't tell me?!?!? Don't you know i would pay top dollar for your cast offs?!? Giiiiirl, you in trouble now... ;)

  5. Thanks, Collette!!!

    Leah, she didn't have any of her good clothes!! I was wanting some of her shoes!!

  6. LOL! You went from freezing to a sunburn? Good grief! Love the pants you have on Joy! Also, love the hats ladies.

  7. I wish I had been there! I love a good yard sale!! ~Serene

  8. you both are FAB!
    you'll seem like so much fun. wish i was your neighbor!
    Lise Marie, I'm glad you liked my preppy look. i actually thought of you when i was putting it together b/c i have a lace collar kind of like your daughters and wanted to wear it with the cardi, but my collar needs to be fixed up a bit before i wear it.
    can't wait to see your cardi you mentioned.

  9. ByeByeSoccerMom (We DO need to be neighbors because the cardi isn't going to be a problem. But,I need you here to SHOW me how to make the belt!!! The lion necklace/belt that you wore for date night is soooo cute, and I am pretty sure mine would NEVER look that goood. I know you can click a link and see how to make it. Trust me, it won't look as cute. lol
