The Sweet Escape

Hello!
Even though the days have gotten longer, days are whizzing by for me! I can't wait for summer! Even though I don't really have anything special planned, the idea of summer is just so enticing and exciting! I will definitely miss having summer breaks when I get my first full-time job!

I've been on a purse craze for the past month! This is my newest addition and I absolutely love it! The leather is incredibly soft and the color is just so perfect for spring! I can't believe I scored it off of UO's website for only $19.99! Remember how I said I was frantically searching for a leather backpack? Well I found one of those too, and bought it! So...I think I'm going to give bags a break. Normally I only buy one or two bags a year, 2010 is only 4 months in and I've already bought three! My search for a cute vintage small messenger bag will have to stop for a long while, but I'm sure I'll appreciate the functionality of all my recent purchases since they're all large enough to carry my laptop around! I have such an addictive personality that when I find something I love I tend to hoard it until I'm sick of it (thank goodness I haven't been sick of stripes or bows yet otherwise I would have nothing to wear!). It's horrible, and I really must break that habit.

Tieka and I have been catching up via email, so because she's so infamous for her pretty florals, I had a major urge to wear this skirt. I don't think I can get any more spring with my outfits than this one! I am still obsessed with this skirt, and since I'm not allowed to shop until June, you'll probably get sick of it over the next few months! I was going to wear my teal oxfords today, but I think it would've been too matchy so I opted for my oxford flats instead! I haven't worn this bow in a long time. It's actually the first one I ever bought, which set off a tidal wave of bow-collecting.

Robert and I watched "Date Night" this afternoon, and it was HILARIOUS! It's such a cute date movie! Tina Fey and Steve Carrell should be a couple in real life--they're so perfect together! I probably burned off the popcorn with all the laughing I did!

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! It's supposed to rain here on Sunday, but I hope the clear skies prevail because the weather is so perfect now! This weekend I have work and I have about 100 photos to edit because the couple finally chose the photos they wanted to be printed. Once I get those sent out to them, I'll do a post on it!

I love you all and I couldn't be happier about blogging now! I've met so many amazing people through this!

Until next post,
Jasmine
