Jasmine Swap!

I did something huge today....I bought a Mac. A Macbook Pro. Not only was I nervous to begin with putting forth so much money, but there was a deal on Best Buy that included a free Wii or Xbox 360 if I bought an HP. Well, I ended up choosing the Mac and now I'm  dying to get it in the mail and play with it! I have had the worst luck and I swear I'm the most virus prone gal in the world. How it happens, I don't know. But I can't wait until June 4th.
Blogger has been down for over two days now. Wah! My laziness still hasn't hit the hay and I'm still a slug, so blogger not working didn't help things at all. When I blog, I'm way more productive and my days are much more structured. Isn't that weird?! Anyways, work is slowly becoming so great. I'm becoming less of an untrained puppy every single day! Today I was even given a gold star (not literally) and got a half hour to go visit my dad two floors below me because I'd finished virtually everything they wanted me to do for the week.Tomorrow it looks like I'll be back to onion crates and onion bags... but then it's Friday! Yay! I love that the weekends actually mean something to me this summer. And that I get paychecks this summer.
Jasmine and I had a little swap off last month and I had not posted what she sent me yet!! Grrr. I finally sent her package today so she will get hers next week and post her side of the swap! She sent me this top and in her note said that she thought I'd be able to wear it as a dress and she couldn't have been more correct! Being 4'11" has that affect on clothes. I LOVED wearing something with a Peter Pan collar and I think Jasmine has me convinced that I need more!
It was kind of cold the day I wore this outfit and since all the pictures I took in this sweater are lost, I decided to throw it on. I got it months ago from Goodwill and I know for a fact it must have been donated by a 90 year old woman. It just smells like old perfume and white permed hair. I have not yet donned my new favorite ballerina bun here you go. I added this bow that was previously a sewed in belt on a dress for a headband, threw socks on with some black wedges, and there we have it.
FRIDAY! YAY! My college pals are coming tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited! It's weird being away from the people you spend every hour of every day with for 8 months. I can't wait!

Rachel said...

I got a free macbook at the beginning of my freshman year at college (that's one of the reasons I picked the school XD). Hope you love yours as much as I've come to love mine. :D

Congrats on the Mac! Though I must confess, I'm a PC girl at heart. Hello, my darling purple Sony.

Love love love that dress color! The perfect pop of cheer on a blah day.

Michal said...

I've been a mac girl for a while now! They're the best. I just got a macbook pro because i use it for work now, as well as other things, but before that i had a macbook that lasted me four years and was still working fine (i gave it to my grandparents). They really don't stop! You're gonna love it.

Your dress is so cute. You look really pretty in that color & peter pan collars FTW!

Margaret said...

I'm so jealous that you bought a Mac! My XP sucks so bad, but Macs are just so expensive. Good job on not buying the HP. Macs are better than Wiis or an XBox!

I'm weak to anything peter-pan collared :D

Elizabeth of PrettyNiftyThriftyFashion said...

Ruby Girl said...

Alex said...

that top/dress is so adorable and the color is just perfect! It's nice you still get to wear sweaters every now and then! :) It always makes an outfit interesting even though you say it smells like a 90 year old lady :P that's funny hahaha. I love the bun, so beautiful :)! And I am happy to hear you got the Mac, you'll see it'll be worth it and you'll be glad you didn't go for the HP :P!


Amelia said...

Amber Blue Bird said...

that top looks great on you as a dress. That is definitely one of the perks of being a short gal :) Congrats on taking the plunge and getting a Mac. I am still trying to save up for one.

Emma said...

Ahh Maggie! aren't you the cutest?! love love!

Natalie said...

Yay for Macbooks! I'm actually very sad to have to give mine back to the high school for the summer... I'm sure you will love it!

I'm glad to hear that your job is not as bad as initially thought! That is another good thing about summer jobs, besides the obvious gain of money haha, that weekends actually feel like something special and the days don't all just melt together!

Peter Pan collars are so adorable! That is quite handy that you can wear that as a dress hehe.

Have fun with your college buds :D

Hannah said...

Once you get Mac, you never go back!
Well.. I don't actually know that, but that's what my nerdy-techy friends tell me. They go to college, so they probably know what they're talking about.

Ahh, I cannot believe you wore this shirt as a dress! I wouldn't have thought twice about what it was. It's a super cool color!

Rebecca Luc said...

Samantha said...

Love the necklace and ribbon in your hair. I need to start, well try to start, wearing socks with heels! This outfit is adorable with the socks!

It looks so so so cute on you!!! I'm so glad it worked out as a dress on you :) I can't wait to receive your package and wear whatever you're sending me! Congrats on the Mac! I love mine to death and it's like 4 years old. I'm trying to give it a make-over by adding some stickers and getting it a case (finally). :)

Eek congrats on your Mac! I just bought one too, but mine's just a suped-up reg. macbook. It's my quarter-life crisis purchase.

Aww your outfit is so simple but so darling! Loving the peter pan collar, hair bow and little bird necklace. So cute!

Enjoy your weekend :)

Catherine said...

Ahh! Congrats on your new Macbook... I essentially need to get one since I plan on being an art major and most art departments operate solely on Macs. Fingers crossed I can get the pro!

Anyway, you look adorable and that top/dress looks so cute on ya!


Jamie Rose said...

That shirt/dress is so adorable! I love the peter pan collar on it and the white sweater you paired with it. I know all about wearing tops or tunic tops as dresses because I'm 4'11" too! I love reading a blog by somebody who's also my height!

Kirstin Marie said...

Yay again for getting a Mac!! I want one, and am always looking for a good sale. Look at you looking gorgeous in this cute little outfit! You've got great legs, lady!! I LOVE peter pan collars. They are my newest favorite.

Lea said...

I already have a Mac--a white Macbook from '08 but am ordering a Macbook Pro in the next few weeks, actually :D You definitely will not regret it. I am horrid at using PCs. I have come to terms with it.

Love your hair like this. But then again, I live half of my life with my hair like this, since it's so easy. And your little bird necklace is the cutest :D

jamie said...

i love mac book pros! and omggg i love this dress! its soo cute!! you look adorable maggie!

Bonnie said...

Apple has turned another PC user into a Mac user.
Trust me -- You will love it. I was totally PC for the longest time until last summer. Now I am nothing but a Mac user. I hate PCs. You will soon notice their inferiority.
