Victoria's Secret

So in preparation for spring, and summer and warm weather in general, I very "logically" decided to buy a swim suit, coverup, and then some actually logical items like jeans and a cute white top. I bought this coverup that I'm in love with:

And it just arrived today! As I was thinking about writing a post about my purchases it hit me like a ton of bricks! Since the top of this coverup is cinch-y, why not take the white ribbon out of it (everything slides through cleanly since it's not sewn into the top) with a preppy grosgrain one?! A fun pink and green polkadot or pink stripe? All the possibilities!!  If you're looking for a coverup, this one is AWESOME, its SO soft since part of it is silk and the rest is stretch spandex and soft modal cotton! Snatch one of these up soon and they come in black, pink, white, and a bluish/greenish color! Very beachy!!

I think I've got a problem with thinking about the warm weather. Spring fever (or I should call it Spring [semester] fever since it is still January after all) has hit me for the first time in my life!! It's very exciting though! Also, Target has tons of Valentine's day decorations out, and they have WONDERFUL pink and green wiggly frames that I have on my desk too! They are so adorable and the perfect addition to a pink and green office!

On another note, I redid my little desk nook! I hung up a bunch of photos in 3x3 white frames that I picked up for $2.50 (for a pack of 3) at Target! I also got this poster:


for my desk! There's a huge poster sale going on in our student union so I thought this was good since I'm both a student nurse AND a Navy fan! That's now hanging up on the side of my desk wall.

I hope everyone else is enjoying this springy weather as much as I am, especially my South Carolina blogging gals!

Haha, not to ruin it or anything, but that lady isn't a nurse. She was just wearing white that day lol. I got that poster for Christmas and did a little research.

We're having that same poster sale going on! I keep meaning to stop by and check it out. Not today though - it's pouring!

Pictures just make any space better. I have so many in my dorm it's sad - and probably a good thing I have my own room, haha.

I love the cover up! We have that poster hanging in our living room in the apt. It's was the one poster everyone could agree on!

I definitely will get in touch the next time I'm in Colatown for more than and hour or two. Is the LP store where you work (in your "about me") at home or in Columbia?

Very cute idea for the cover up!

With the exception that mine has the date and name of the photo, I have that very same poster above my desk, too! I am in LOVE with it! Tip: if you get the chance, a thin black frame looks amazing around it - that's what I did to mine.

Also, as a fun sidenote: The man kissing her was in the coast guard. BUT since the war was over and the Navy was considered "heroes of the war" he rolled his sleeves up to look like a member of the navy! Research this story if you have time - it's a good one!
