Jumping in Feet First

Welcome to my first blog post everyone! I suppose I should start by thanking the lovely ladies in my links column for unknowingly inspiring me to create this window into my life. I stumbled upon Sally Jane Vintage after I brought home a beauty of a vintage high waisted skirt from the thrift store and had no idea at all how to style it, and well it just kind of took of from there. Next thing I knew I started checking blogs everyday and found myself increasingly wanting to become part of this wonderful community that was brand new to me. So here I am, jumping in feet first. Please bear with me as I adjust myself to these new surroundings, as I'm sure I'll be making constant changes for a while. I know that it's a long and hard climb up, but I'm really looking forward to the challenge and all of the wonderful posibilities!

I started taking outfit photos about two weeks ago in preperation for this day, and started accumulating them fast. I'm at art student at my college in Saint Cloud, Minnesota and with the warm weather starting to peak it's head out I've been having no problems at all locating friends whom want to bust out their cameras for a half hour! So in anticipation I think I'll share with you my first two photo adventures.

These photographs were taken by my best friend in the Saint Cloud area, Aubree. She's a wonderful gal who has been so inspiring, supportive, and helpful in my decision to start this blog! It was one of the first really nice days in Minnesota so we decided to take a trip to our local flower garden!

Seeing as how I tend to be more comfortable in familiar places, a few days later my boyfriend Ryan & I went back to the flower gardens for round two. This day was much cooler than we had previously been spoiled with. But I didn't mind at all, because it gave me an excuse to wear my brand new cape that I had just purchased from Savers and am IN LOVE with! I spotted a similar one on Rebecca of The Clothes Horse just a week or two before and thought to myself where can I find one of those beauties?! Low and behold next Saver's trip, a perfect one featuring almost all of my favorite colors! It was ten dollars, which I'm pretty sure is the most I've ever spent on a thrifted item, but I could just picture all of the lovely times we will have together this summer around bonfires and fall time walks. I probably would have wept in the car if I had left with out it!

Sorry that my first post is rather long, I tend to be pretty wordy, especially when I'm excited! Now it's off to catch up on my reading and enjoy the quiet before the boy gets back from celebrating a friend's 21st birthday!
