Mirror in the Sky


When: March 19, 2011

What:
Dress: Target
Jacket: Gap (similar jacket)
Boots: Mossimo Target via Goodwill
Scarf: Old Navy 
Tights: Forever 21
Necklaces: gifts

Where: Shooting photos with my dad at the Rose Garden in Washington Park

Why: Can it please be spring now? Tomorrow is the first official day of spring and I decided to jump the gun by wearing some floral and pastel colors. Although the roses aren't in bloom, there were some other beautiful flowers to at least make it look like spring even though the weather disagrees. I was tired of wearing jeans so I grabbed this dress, with tights, it feels like I'm in pajamas. Perfect. I love the denim jacket! It's the first one I've ever owned and this is the first time I've worn it even though I've had it since August. I just needed a little inspiration. I like the boots with this outfit, but I'm not sure if I love them. They were great considering that the area was muddy and they aren't super nice, but perhaps next time I would try a springier shoe. 

Tomorrow I am shopping with my mom! I went to the mall yesterday with Paul to shop for him and do my first research run. Ha ha, I needed to scope around what I like so I don't go too insane with lust. I found a bunch of things I love at J. Crew. Hopefully I'll be bringing back some new things to show you! I think I deserve it, since all the shopping I have in Corvallis is Goodwill and TJ Maxx. That's also why I can't give you many links to the items I wear, because they're all remixed from past seasons. And we all know how quickly the fashion industry moves. 

Hope you're all having a great spring break! I'm crossing my fingers for some sun. 



Oh, and Beau says, "herro."

  7. Cool post!

    and yes shopping at stores other than thrift can be harder in that way, but still no thrill, unless its like a cheap find- but still not as awesome as finding an uber chic/ cheap piece that no one else has! :)
