Book Nookish


Sorry I haven't been around much this week! It was the week before Spring Break, which is always crazy. Between my usual research and a research proposal presentation, I was pretty busy and a little stressed. And then I ended up not even having to give the presentation, arrgghhh. Instead I'm doing it the week after break. I guess that just goes to show that you shouldn't be too serious about any one thing.

K and I went to the library today and he took some spur-of-the-moment pictures there. I think they turned out pretty neat, especially since it was such a sunny day! It kinda brightened our moods because we had been apartment-hunting most of the day, and it was so frustrating and fruitless that we were getting down.


Spring has finally FINALLY come! The city is full of flowering trees right now, I need to go take some pictures! Also, you know it's spring once everyone starts celebrating St. Patrick's Day. That's right, my fair city began the St. Pat's celebrations yesterday afternoon. Getting hammered like a frat boy really isn't my scene, but I do get a kick out of the city dying the water in the big fountain a lovely shade of green for the week.


I'm so excited to break out these shoes again! They're so fun and they make me feel so tall! I know people either love or hate espadrille-type shoes-- I'm definitely an espadrille lover. Plus the platforms take me back to my Spice Girl fan days. Ah, memories.


Has anyone else checked out the Jean Paul Gaultier stuff at Target yet? I love the little red and white flowery eyelet dress. I can't decide if I like this collection or the Rodarte collection better. What's your vote?

dress - Target / belt - Charlotte Russe / shoes - old, dunno / 
necklace - World Market


  1. Cute spring time look! I wish I could break out the open toe shoes!

  2. Hery, Chopin is my favourite piano composer too :)
    These shoot in the "house of books" (don´t know it in english) is very beautifull!!!
    Allways when I see your pictures I can´t wait for summer in germany.

  3. I'm so jealous, I want to be able to wear cute dresses like this. You look so lovely, Jenn!


  4. Love this look! Cute photos in the library too! :)

  5. You look so pretty here!! I love the wedges - you look so summer fresh! I'm jealous you're able to wear things like that already! I just want the sun to come out and stay for once!!!! ;)

  6. I love this look! You look so spring! Adorable shoes, acck your just too adorable, I can't get over it!

  7. The Mr. and I were half joking last night about skipping work and just driving to Chuck town, we both miss it soo much. You ahve to get to Folly Beach when the weather is nicer, I used to bring half my house with me there and stay all day! If you guys like Thai then you'll love the resturant I have yet to find a thai place around here that I love as much.

  8. This color looks beautiful on you! You look so pretty.

  9. So the Mr. and I got into a "Which place is better to eat at in Chuck Town" and it brought back a flood of wonderful places I forgot about. You must try Mellow Mushroom if you guys like pizza they make the best! Also if Hoggie haven is still killing around they got the best darn sandwitches, they stuff the french fries in the sandwitch, truley heaven (can you tell all we ever did there was eat out?) If Hoggie Haven is still on the corner side street there is a great second hand store, thrift costume place right around the corner.. I can't remember the name but is in the back parking lot there. Also try to check out the angel tree its massive and amazing!

  10. Lovely photos. Aah the Spice Girl platform days - amazing!

  11. I haven't seen any of the spring stuff at Target yet, but I'm looking forward to getting my wardrobe ready for warmer weather and pool time!
