Hello!
I'll give you a few seconds to get over the shock of seeing me in shorts and my pale, bare legs...Alright moving on--This is what I wore yesterday on my second day off. Robert and I did some more shopping where I used all five of my coupons at Victoria's Secret so I can prolong time between laundry loads. New undergarments just make me a bit tingly inside, especially cute ones. We tried our luck at thrifting to no avail; got my boat shoes at 40% off and on special order; and ate some chocolate croissants.

I bought these shorts and sandals on Monday and couldn't wait to wear them. I love both of them and you should be warned that you'll be seeing lots of both, especially the sandals. I knew this year I didn't want to go for the gladiator sandals (I got some pretty weird tan lines on my feet last summer) so I'm really happy with these. I want them in every color, but mustard yellow is going to be so fun to style! Spring and everything it includes just makes me so giddy. I don't know if it's the spring fever talkin', but lately I've been wanting to ditch my MBMJ bag for a canvas tote bag. So I did it. I just think it compliments the casual, spring pastels I've been sporting lately. Besides, a tote bag holds so much more of my junk that it's functional too! Ever since I got this polka dot bow tie from the flea market, I wanted to wear it with my peter pan collar top. I've never mixed polka dots with florals before, but I am liking it!

Thank you all for your sweet comments on my last post! You all make me feel so good about myself and I love you all so much! I'm going to continue to be me and not worry about others. I'll visit your blogs after I finish these two icky papers. As you can see...I did not do them last night; instead, I gave my blog a make-over.

Until next post,
Jasmine

  10. Girl, you are ROCKING those cute shorts! With the yellow sandals (j'adore!) and colorful "Skittles" nails = PERFECT. You know I adore your mixing and matching skills. You're one of the few bloggers I know who don't always buy new things to come up with new outfits :)

  14. blog makeovers > writing papers.

    i adore this little vintage bow with your entire outfit and i love you in shorts! my favorite part about spring is definitely getting to ditch your tights and opt for bare legs instead! (although by the time the heat is unbearable in august i can't wait for tight weather) :P

  19. The yellow sandals are so cute :) Especially with the florals and the little bowtie. I adore how simple and carfree all of your outfits are. And I'm so so jealous that you can go tightsless. It's still pretty cool here in Oregon.

  20. Ohmygosh. I love this outfit so much Jasmine! Cute as can be, and so so cheery! :D

    Your blog looks GREAT. Seriously. Maybe you should do mine too, because it's looking really sad. Lol.
