Guest Post: Jasmine!
Greetings readers of Lifesize Paperdoll!
I'm Jasmine and I run my own personal style blog (Transient Withdrawal), but I'm so happy that Maggie asked me to do a guest post for her while she's away on an internet vacation! I asked her if she had any themes or ideas, and she gave me a list of some which included dream wedding, how I'd spend $500 on clothes, birthday traditions, and favorite Summer reads. Now since I've put myself on a budget of $100 for my entire Summer wardrobe, I thought dream shopping could turn to be a little dangerous so I took the last idea and spun it in a different direction. The entire Harry Potter series is always a Summer read for me. Always. It has been this way since I started reading Harry Potter as a kid and I'm still not sick of it. Though, I'm currently too busy to actually read the books so I have taken to listening to the audio books at the gym, in the car, and while I'm reading blogs. I'm actually listening to it right now. My boyfriend also surprised me with Harry Potter midnight premiere tickets. We've been together for nearly 4 and a half years, and every year since, I drag him to see Harry Potter with me. So it was super sweet that now he's the one taking me to see the very last one. I figured now would be a good time as any to do some sort of tribute to the series that changed my life. Thankfully I already had some scarlet and gold things in my closet to create this look and thankfully they're fit for the heat during Summer.
