One of the best things about summer here in the Midwest is ditching the winter duds for bright and breezy clothing! It seems the minute the temperature goes above let’s say 40 degrees, people start sporting flip flops, maxi dresses and short shorts! Since our season is rather short, it’s very wise to be ready for the warm and welcoming sunshine with a wardrobe full of wearable separates. This week we’ll take a look at some spectacular tops I picked up at Goodwill. What’s great about tops is that they can be worn alone, or they look awesome as a layering piece under blazers, shirts and jackets. You really need to have some basic pieces like tank tops and plain t-shirts of course, but you should also keep on the lookout for stand-out toppers like the ones in my slideshow.

I love doing interviews with actual Goodwill shoppers to illustrate just how much value you can get for you, or your family, simply by strategically shopping at our stores. In this blog, I’m picking the brain of my friend of 25 years, Stefani Miller. I knew Stefani before she had a family, and I’ve watched her ease into the life of a busy mom and business entrepreneur. She is the poster child for back-to-school shopping for her kids! As a matter of fact, I was recently at Goodwill researching ideas for an upcoming blog post, and low-and-behold there was Stefani with her 10-year-old daughter and her niece, shopping for kids clothes! I decided then and there to get her take on why Goodwill has become an important and fun part of her shopping experience as a mom and homemaker.
