outfit: top and bow -- f21; skirt, belt, and shoes -- uo; cardigan -- h&m

Hello!
I told you I was trying to breathe life into clothes I already own, of course the easiest (and kinda counterproductive) way to do that is my remixing them with new clothes. Today I pulled out this peach cardigan that I wore once in Fall and it went into hibernation. I already know this cardigan and my mint green one in my last post are going to be my very good friends this Spring and Summer. This top is another thing I got from F21's 100% for Japan event. I first saw it on Maggie (she has it in grey) and I knew I had to have it! Bow-printed things make me so weak in the knees! Like my cream peter pan collar top, it's such a great alternative to a plain white tee. Spring is definitely here in California. Today is supposed to be a beautiful 86-degrees! I heavily considered going to the bathroom and taking off my tights while at work yesterday, but my bare legs just aren't ready quite yet.

I wore this outfit yesterday, in which I had a great morning. I woke up with the hugest craving for an iced coffee, which is really strange since I can't function without tea. So after I finished my homework and did my morning bike ride, Robert and I checked out the Madewell that recently opened up here, where one of the workers recognized me from my blog (Hi Reena!) and where I walked away with a new top. We got my upside-down, iced caramel mochiatto from Starbucks and McDonalds--satisfying two food cravings is better than just one right? Not really--I felt kinda sick for the rest of the day. I guess my body isn't used to intaking so much crap all at once anymore. Lesson learned: no more crap.

Until next post,
Jasmine

  3. First of all, I just have to say...I'm currently sitting at work, reading your blog post, AND WEARING THE MUSTARD SKIRT. I've never really pictured peach and mustard together (especially food wise, haha) but I'm loving the color palette it creates! I wish I wasn't wearing jackets like you but alas, it's rainy out. I'll live vicariously through your pictures. :)

    And ahhh, that's so awesome to have been recognized at Madewell! I haven't been back there since NYC Fashion Week. Reunion in September there?

  4. How awesome to have been recognized! Sounds like you had a fantastic day. =)

    Love the color combination- I would have never thought to pair them together! It makes me want to go play around in my own closet...haha.

  7. Adorable outfit! I wanted that bow top but they sold out in my size and I was so sad :( But like Jen said, I wouldn't think peach and mustard would look good together but you're definitely rocking it!

  17. Oh, wow, that skirt is just adorable! I love the color, and you really did a great job combining it with the peach!

    Food cravings are so irritating! I find myself wanting noodles all the time, but I'm so sick of them; really :p
