Monday again? Where is the time going? I wish I could give you some amazing stories from my weekend but I can't. I had clarinet rehearsal (I play in a clarinet choir in case you didn't know). Then I got burgers with my husband. Sunday we went to get more burgers (seriously, I have an addiction guys!) and then we took outfit photos. I'm trying to find some cool fashion blogger-y alleys to take my photos. What do you think? Haha... 

Last week I picked up this drapey skirt from J.Crew. I had my eye on it when first came out and it finally went on clearance plus an extra 40% off! It's comfortable and can be dressed up or down. I went with a more casual approach with a linen tee and denim jacket. The printed scarf and tassel earrings add a little more interest to the outfit. 

P.S. There's still time to get a FREE month of Rocksbox w/code 'jeansandateacupxoxo'! Rocksbox is a subscription service where you get to borrow, trade in or buy designer jewelry at a discount and as many times as you want each month.

Have you noticed a theme this week? Stripes, light pink, grey...it's kind of my favorite color palette at the moment. I can't stop myself from picking up items in these colors. And I'm happy that I finally found a great pair of light grey jeans. I wear my dark blue skinny jeans ALL THE TIME. I thought it was about time to get denim skinnies in other colors...because my one pair of denim skinny jeans really need a wash. 

Happy Friday! I made it through my second "full" week of work. I'm still trying to get used to my schedule and fit in some workouts now that my toe has almost heeled. My finger is still a little numb from my knife injury but I'm hoping its getting a little better? Or maybe I'm just getting used to the numbness... Anyway, I'm starting to appreciate my weekends a lot more now!

I think my favorite colors this spring are grey, peach and light blue. This weeks outfits are all in those hues. It just makes dressing easy - all of these colors are neutral enough to mix together! I recently added a pair of peach jeans and a pair of grey jeans to my closet. I also picked up this striped tee recently. It's surprisingly difficult to find the perfect striped tee for some reason! I love the high low hem and the sleeves on this one. It's also super comfy. 

I finished off my look with Gorgana jewelry from my Rocksbox! I bought the earrings from my last box and this necklace is from my current one. Get your FREE box with code 'jeansandateacupxoxo'!

Happy Monday! The weekend definitely did not seem long enough but at least I was able to get more outfit photos in! 

The Shopbop sale was a big deal about a week ago and I was really tempted to order something with the extra 25% off. I've never ordered anything from Shopbop before so it seemed like a good time. And I had been eyeing this BB Dakota jacket that I'd seen on a couple bloggers. But it was $95. Even with the extra 25% off I still wasn't sure I wanted to pay that much for a light jacket. But then I did a little internet research and found it on sale at another retailer for $55! Score! That's still a bit of a splurge for me but I really loved the shape and color of this jacket. It's really lightweight and perfect for cool LA nights. Even though the leather is faux it's still really soft and flexible which I like. I would really like to pick it up in other colors if it goes on sale again. 

Does anyone else hate paying full price for clothes? I always google specific items and search through a ton of links to see if I can find the lowest price! You can see all the links I found to this jacket from different retailers. Now you just have to wait for one of them to have a sale!  

I have to mention my earrings. They came in my latest Rocksbox and I love them! Ear jackets are very "in" right now and these will go with a lot of different outfits. You can still get a free month with code 'jeansandateacupxoxo'!

Save Money - Rent Your Textbooks!

CampusBookRentals, Rent Textbooks

I'm not in college anymore but I cringe when I think about all the money I spent on textbooks that I no longer use. I have quite a few collecting dust on my bookshelves. I wish I had been able to rent my textbooks instead of buying them. Luckily for students in college NOW there's a site where you can do just that! 

CampusBookRentals.com lets you rent textbooks saving you 40-90% off bookstore prices! Other benefits include:

-free shipping both ways

-can highlight in the textbooks

-flexible renting periods

- option to buy book and only pay the difference

- 21 day worry free return policy if you change your mind

-a donation to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

The great thing about CampusBookRentals.com is their commitment to Operation Smile. Since 2011 CampusBookRentals.com has partnered with Operation Smile to provide life changing cleft lip  surgeries to children whose families can't afford it. In many parts of the world, children with cleft lip or palettes are too embarrassed to go out in public or go to school. It also has an effect on their speech and dental hygiene. Operation Smile is able to perform surgeries to fix cleft lips and palettes which drastically improves the child's quality of life. And a portion of proceeds from each book rented goes to this amazing organization!

Save money AND make a difference!

*This post is sponsored by CampusBookRentals.com but all opinions are my own. Seriously guys, I hope you take advantage of a site like this! I spent soooo much money on textbooks when I was in school. CampusBookRentals started in 2007 which is the year I graduated! So I didn't have this option when I was in school!
