Hello!
I felt extremely school girl-y in this outfit--all I was missing was some high knee socks--but this outfit was so comfy so I didn't care. Continuing with the school girl feeling, Robert and I took photos at a gazebo at the Katie Wheeler library. There's something so charming and romantic about gazebos. I can never get enough of them. It's like having your own island on land just for the two of you to stare at the world. I want one in my future home's backyard with twinkling lights and pretty flowers wrapped around the columns (I had this idea way before Twilight).

Did you all have a wonderful, relaxed weekend? Mine went something like this: I had class on Saturday; went to the gym; watched Tangled multiple times; bought Easter colored nail polish; ate frozen yogurt; spent hours in the craft store and Target; and took home more DIY projects. I found this bow in the craft store when I was buying the flowers for my floral headband and ribbon for my straw hat last week. It's so cute and came in a pair with a solid twin. I couldn't resist so I bought two pairs in different colors. I went back to buy more yesterday, but I guess other people discovered that hidden gem too! $3 for a pair--which is about the price of F21, but the quality is loads better. I found my new source of bows; hopefully they restock soon. For now, I'm on a floral-headband-making-high. I made 4 hair pins and three headbands, and painted my nails last night. Why can't I be that productive during the week?

Until next post,
Jasmine

  5. What a cute casual outfit, red and gray are lovely together! And that last shot is absolutely beautiful, I love it! I agree, gazebos are awesome, despite there not being enough of them here (or they're homeless folks sleeping in graffiti-marked ones...). Yay glad you discovered a new project, can't wait to see the things you make and how the hat looks with the ribbon!

  6. It sounds like you had an amazing weekend :) For some reason, I feel really happy in school girl -ish outfits too. Without meaning to, I find myself wearing them. Your pin makes me giggle and I sort of want it.

    Happy Monday... :|

  7. I love when you wear red! This is so cute! I love this full skirt. My weekend was my first weekend of work in eight months so it was... worky... but good. Saturday wasn't my favourite, but I had some solid people who were there to make me feel better, so that always feels good. : )

    I have so much I want to do but don't have enough time. If only there was an extra hour to a day and a extra day to a week!
