outfit: hat -- thrifted; cardigan and belt -- gap; top -- f21; skirt -- cotton on; shoes -- aldo

Hello!
Happy weekend everyone! I adored this outfit, even though (well more, like especially) because it wasn't planned. I had originally planned to wear a different skirt with it, but thankfully I took a look at myself in the mirror and realized that the skirt was much too sheer to be wearing dark underwear so I pulled this one on instead, but I think this looks better than Plan A! Happy accidents are always fun. Sorry for the overload of photos. There were just too many good ones. As you can see, I added a ribbon to the hat that I got at the flea market for $3. I probably stood in the ribbon aisle for a good half an hour trying to decide which ribbon to buy. I came home with four ribbons (they were on sale for buy one get one), but decided to go with this one since it just screams summer; and if I ever get sick of it, I can always use the other ribbons too.

Yesterday before work, I went shopping (they didn't have my boat shoes in my size either phooey) and found some pretty spring clothes at H&M. At work I got my paycheck (always a good thing) and I found out that I get all of next week off since all my students will be away during spring break so I get a spring break too! Robert said I looked like I was going on vacation in this outfit (I think it was the hat that threw him off). You can bet I'll be wearing my hat a whole lot during my time off. Eep! I'm so excited! Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Like my festive nails?

Until next post,
Jasmine

    I wish I could sport a hat like that. Unfortunately my cranium is too big. Hahah. Jk. My head's too big! :(

  3. Adorable outfit! I love the ribbon on your hat and it's looks so cute on you. I'm so jealous of your nails. I already own way too much nail polish but not that many pastels, sadly enough.

    I hope you have a great week off!

  5. JASMINE I LOVE YOUR NEW BANNER! It's so cute! You look wondrous in these Spring colours, and that's awesome you get a break. Do you have any plans? Going on a little road trip?

  6. YESSSS. I always paint my nails multiple colours. People think it's weird. I don't. I'm just not decisive enough to choose one colour - so why not two? (or five? Or ten? WHY NOT?)

    I love these photos - they're so bright and sunny. That sun hat is perfect. Sun hats are the best. GAH THIS POST MAKES ME EXCITED FOR SUMMER!

  10. EEEEEEEEEEK NAAAAILS. You know my weakness. Nail polish. UGH JAZZY WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?!?!?! Tell me, which nail polishes are those? I want them all! I also adore those loafer-esque shoes. I need. I WANT. I also can't get enough of the ribbon detailing on your little boater hat. Good call with the ribbon choice! <3

  18. I kind of can' get over this entire outfit. Can I have every single piece you're wearing? Spring is definitely here with all the pastels you're rocking. And I'm so jealous you can pull off that boat hat.

    DYNAMIC DUO SOON??!?! <3
