Stuck on Repeat

Hello!
Today is just one of those days...

Photobucket

I miss Robert, but I won't see him until Tuesday since I have to work four-days straight starting today. We were supposed to have a picnic on the beach today, but he has to help his dad out with something. So we've postponed it to next week. I tried to take photos at the lake, but my outfit wasn't too photogenic and there were too many people. So I chickened out, drove home, changed, and took photos in the safety of my backyard. Next time I'm taking Robert with me to make it less awkward.

I love seeing love initials carved into trees, especially ones that have been there for years. I always stop to take photos of them. It's just so old-fashioned to proclaim your love on a tree. One day I hope to see mine and Robert's name on a tree...I definitely want to do carve our names on a tree in the backyard of our first house with three dates: the day we started dating, the day we got married, and the day we moved in. And then...followed by the birthdays of our kids. Hopefully a tree house will be on the top of that tree too!

I'm sorry for another polka dot + red combo. I just couldn't really think of anything else today. I was saving this outfit for next week so it wouldn't be a whole week of red and polka dots, but I guess I have loads of time while I'm at work to think of new outfits for next week. I'm actually really surprised at how well polka dots are fitting in with my striped-filled closet, and yet I can't help feel like I'm kind of betraying stripes with my new obsession. My polka-dot tank was another Cotton On steal--just $5! I normally don't like toe-cleavage but these flats were too cute and cheap ($12) to pass up too. Besides, a little cleavage doesn't hurt anyone, right?

I lost my favorite gray cardigan a few weeks ago and so I think this red cardigan has become my go-to cardigan now. I've had it for months and have only worn it once before. The color is just perfect for summer. I think I'm gonna switch out the buttons for gold ones to jazz it up. I really hope I don't lose this one either. I have this bad luck of losing favorite cardigans. I've lost two already. I hope whoever found them is happy.

I got this bow a while ago from Taylor. It was initially attached to a bobby-pin, but my hair is too thick so I finally found an alligator clip and switched it. I'll definitely be wearing it a lot more now.

Hope your Friday is better than mine. Have a good weekend everyone! I guess this is my last spring outfit!

Until next post,
Jasmine

  1. Polka Dots and stripes are one of those combinations that shouldn't work well together but totally do! You look adorable as always.

  6. I love the red and polka dot outfits, so don't worry about boring me.

    Theres a forest of bamboo trees in the botanic gardens here and they are covered in peoples writing, like its actually so amazing there must be thousands of names on those trees, including my own :).

  7. I think carving names and initials on trees is super romantic! Such a lovely idea :) Yay I love your red and polka dotted outfits! I'm really into polka dots as well (reading your article on Chictopia has only made me want more polka dotted things!), and actually I think they go well with stripes.

    I'm sorry you lost your gray cardigan :( Your new red one is lovely though! Maybe if you find one you especially like, you should buy two of them!

  8. If it aint broke don't fix it! The red is such a good color on you and the pokka dots is your thing for the moment. I love me some pokka dots, but I'm not finding any right now.

  13. Aww what a sweet little post. (: I am also fascinated with names carved into trees. I remember telling my boyfriend to do ours on this random tree near the beach (as a half-joke) and he just sorta chuckled at me. I guess we aren't quite there yet. Lol.

    I'll never tire of your polka dots + red combos Jasmine! <3
