Thrifting, originally uploaded by jenib320.

It's official. School has taken over my life! I have been so busy so far this semester. I'm taking 7 classes and a lab, so it's really been crazy. I am finally starting to get into somewhat of a routine so hopefully soon I'll have more time for photos, blogging, and crafting. For now, here is a taste of what I've been up to!

I managed to make it to an estate sale last weekend, came away with some cute kitchen things!

I am in love with these saltine cracker tins I picked up last week, they're so cool! Paid $5 total for the two.

Today, originally uploaded by jenib320.
I'm finding it hard these first few weeks of school to get back into the blogging mode. Hopefully I'll get into a good routine with school soon so that I can get back into a groove here! Managed to find time to photograph my outfit for today! Here are the details: Tanks - Old Navy, Cardigan - Old Navy, Jeans - Delias, Sandals - Target, Necklace - Lillyella. Today I'm wearing three of my favorite things. 1. Delias Jeans. I am wearing these into the ground, they are my everyday-all-the-time jeans. 2. Target Sandals - This summers sandals. I love gladiators and these have little embellishments that add a little character. 3. Lillyella necklace - My current favorite neckalce featuring a flat pearl and little bird charm.

In other clothing news I have picked up a few items at the thrift lately. I picked up this awesome gray zip-up sweatshirt for $1 at Goodwill. It's Express and has no wear on it. It's super comfy and fits me great! I also picked up these great jeans from Salvation Army for $3. They're Guess and have a really cool wash. They need to shrink a tiny bit more in the butt and then they'll be perfect. I also just picked up a pair of jeans that I'm wearing as capris from Salvation Army Tuesday. :)

Finally!, originally uploaded by jenib320.
I finally had a great run at the Grocery store. The details: Total: $13.25 + ($6 off my next shopping trip!). 21 Items: 2 Kashi Cereal, 2 Kashi Crackers, 5 Kashi Cookies, 1 I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray, 6 Dannon Yogurt Cups, 1 Campbell's Soup at Hand, 2 Campbell's Microwave Soups, 2 Original Pringles. I had a coupon for everything and everything was on sale! I was happy with $13.25 but because of sales I also managed to get $6 off my next purchase at Giant Eagle! :D

Something New., originally uploaded by jenib320.

Feeling inspired to start documenting my 'outfits'. First and foremost because I think it will encourage me to become more creative and and thoughtful about what I wear. Secondly because I've been feeling pretty fashion inspired lately. I don't know how it will go. I'm very self-conscious about photos of myself. I just always find myself grabbing for the same items in my wardrobe especially during the school year and I want to wear more of my clothes! I think that this will help me refocus on what I wear.

The details of this outfit: Top-Old Navy, Leggings-Target, Shoes-Ebay (Old Navy), Necklace-Thrifted. I need a haircut!

Today I love the..
Smell of: Sunflowers
Sound of: Jackson Browne
Taste of: Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
Sight of: The Sartorialist
Feel of: Leggings

Good Things about Today:
- The Sartorialist Book!
- George was good today!
- Got bids on my ebay item!
- Beautiful weather again
- Feeling inspired
