Hammers and Strings

Photobucket

After a day like today, I wish everyday was a day off. Despite all the work I have to do tomorrow (which is a lot...), I don't regret slacking off today at all, at least not right now. It's unbelievable that just two days ago, the sky was beautifully clear when while at work yesterday I saw the sky change from that same blue to gray. It was pouring today for hours! I was actually really surprised when the sun came out. It's supposed to rain all week...bleh!

Robert and I were supposed to have a nice getaway at his house in Chino Hills, but his brother was there today. Robert has a midterm on Wednesday so we tried to spend the day holed-up in a bookstore. Emphasis on the try: I ended up reading most of a wedding photography book, while he finished up his homework and then read magazines. The ceiling above where we were sitting was even leaking. So we took that as a sign to leave, and just half an hour before we left, the sun peaked through the clouds. I didn't find a rainbow today though... :(

I swear California's sky can't go a day without showings its blue hues.

I got my hair cut yesterday, and it's way too short. Thank goodness my hair grows super fast. Just watch in two weeks, it'll be back to its old length. I don't know why I do this...looking at my previous post--my hair was at a good length. I always want to chop it when it's just short of that awkward stage of being not-short/not-long. I was also wearing a Burberry scarf (that I found on the street three years ago!!) today, and felt sort of British with that and my trench coat so I couldn't help but wear my oxfords today! I'll be in this coat for the whole week if it rains for that long...

Robert and I ended up going to the mall, where he bought me a red cardigan! Finally! I've been searching for a red cardigan for so long, and today we found a nice one from Zara on sale for $15! My cardigan collection is slowly coming together nicely! I don't think I'll ever be satisfied since they're all I really need in this weather. We also watched The Lovely Bones, which I thought was pretty good but Robert hated it.

(I thought this window display was gorgeous! There are LV bags inside those cages.)

I came home to find a package for me, and it was the bag Robert ordered for me for our anniversary (a week from tomorrow!)! It's so pretty, and big! Perfect timing because I was afraid that I'd have to use my Jansport backpack this week so that I don't get rain on my laptop since my black chain bag doesn't zip, but now I can still be chic hehe! Yay! Better pictures of it soon!

*Also, thank you for the emails of sky photos! I'm going to continue to take them until Friday, all the while I'll be trying to take pictures everyday too! This is so exciting!

I hope everyone had a lovely three-day weekend. It's time to get back to school/work. Bleh!

Until next post,
Jasmine

  3. I like your hair, but understand that feeling that its way too short after a cut. And let me just say that the oxfords are just adorable. I've been looking for a pair like that and the perfect red cardigan for ages. I started to count up my favorite pics from this post, but I really just love so many of them.

  5. These photos are so beautiful!
    I'm sure you noticed, since you're good at what you do but the first photo...the red and blue of the ground mimics the lettering on the car which mimic the colors of the leaves in picture 4.

    I can't wait to see the collage of the sky. I hope it clears up some for you to be able to enjoy it.

  12. i think your hair looks absolutely adorable! and i hate when i my hair gets to the in between stage too. that's why i'm scared to cut my hair really short, because eventually it'll grown out into the medium stage before hitting long again haha :P

    you look adorable in the rain (love the photoshoot location, it's a change with all the cars!
    and YAY for your new red bag, i can't wait to see how you wear it (and especially that red cardigan - you can never have too many)
    i will get you my sky photo before it's too late! i swear! haha :)
    btw, the shot of the rain drops on the orange flower is stunning!

  13. Wow, such amazing photos. You're quite the talented behind the camera, as much as you are adorable in front.

    Also, I am in love with those oxfords.

    Doesn't the rain absolutely suck right now in California??? I swear, we're so spoiled but seriously...it sucks.
