An Unexpected Find

tee: Target
cardigan: Dollar General
pants: Loft (maternity)
shoes: Target


I've always been one to browse through the clothes section of any store I find myself in - dollar stores included, which is where I surprisingly found this knit cardigan I guess we'll call it. The night before my husband's big race he realized he forgot a towel to throw in his swim to bike transition area so while he prepped the rest of his stuff, I ran across the street from our hotel to Dollar General to buy a cheap towel for him.

A half hour and one phone call from my husband wondering why I was taking so long later, I had bought the towel he needed, some candy corn, and a really comfortable men's t-shirt (I'll profess my love that that probably later this week!). That t-shirt was so perfect that my search for more of them once we were back in Columbus led to the find I'm highlighting in this post. Of course the quality isn't great, but it's a print that's different than anything else I own and it's a nice light layer. I have a feeling it will get plenty of use! Have you ever found an item you really like in someplace really unexpected?

  1. I don't think my Dollar Store has clothes! That is a great find! It looks so comfy and you'll be able to wear it after the baby comes too!

    1. You're exactly right Beth - I really want everything I buy from here on out to be something I can wear after baby too!

  4. I didn't know that the Dollar General had clothes! But then again I don't think we have one in town. I recently found a really great necklace in the gift shop of a restaurant. That's probably the most unexpected place I've ever found anything, but now I'm curious to find something somewhere unexpected!!

  5. Wow, what a nice surprising find! I haven't been in a Dollar General in a while. Maybe I should pop in once and a while!
