#ThriftyThursday: Thomas Lane
Let my preface this #ThriftyThursday by saying it is my favorite yet!
Last week, I visited my 82 year-old grandparents who live on a 100-acre farm down in a holler. Needless to say, there is not much traffic passing through Thomas Lane. Tuesday morning, Granny and I were swinging and drinking coffee on her patio, talking life and enjoying ourselves. The only car that drove down the hill was a 1950's OIdsmobile. Granny began fan-girling.
Later that afternoon, my family took a trip to town – so we just had to stop at the nearby Goodwill. I was cruising through the aisles, looking for sandals to feature in my last blog post. I headed over to the dresses and found this gem from Forever 21. I almost teared up; it fit perfectly and mirrored the cars Granny was reminiscing earlier. I purchased the outfit for less than $15, feeling on top of the world.
This summer has been hectic, working two jobs and taking summer classes. I would rather be kicking back at the pool on Thomas Lane, hearing Granny and Granpda's love story. But today, I am wearing my dress, J. Crew cardigan, and Steve Madden sandals to remind me that home is where the heart is. Thomas Lane is always with me.
