Pink Punch

Going to Goodwill for some see-what-I-can-find shopping has proven to be worthwhile yet again!

This little dress is a super pretty pink punch color and is (gasp) sleeveless. That’s only unusual for me because I never wear sleeveless tops/dresses, but hey, I’m stepping outside of my comfort zone for a change. It only cost me $4!

Hope everyone is having a lovely Monday! Smile, be happy, stay positive and enjoy the little things. ❤

 

 

An Ode to My Leading Ladies

Last night, I was going through my Pinterest board and looking through all of the pictures of ladies who inspire me in the fashion and makeup sense. Just for fun, I decided to do a photo-only post filled with all of my favorite leading ladies, from the past to present! They range from singers with a great sense of style to actresses with eye-catching fashion they wore for films. 

Feel free to comment if you have any of your own leading ladies who inspire you, whether it be fashion-wise or makeup, etc!

Romantic in Red

I’m not sure what’s gotten into me lately but I’ve found myself watching The Notebook recently and taking notice of the beautifully romantic 1940’s style ensembles worn in the movie. As much as I wish I had more 40’s-esque attire (my clothes look more 1960’s/1970’s), I got creative with what I had and went for a semi-1940’s outfit today!

I love this purse so much…it really makes any outfit I wear look even more vintage! (I wrote a post about it before, but just as a reminder, it’s a vintage purse from the 1960’s).

Yeah, it still looks very 1960’s.

Lol. I think even if I wore a dress straight out of the 1940’s, it would still look 60’s solely because of my hairstyle and makeup. Ohhhhhh well!

I really love my outfit today and had to take pictures! Ciao!

The Beauty of Gratitude

 

gratitude-quotes

Inspired by some other blog posts I’ve read today, I wanted to write my own post about gratitude. ❤

I think we all get caught up in our own mental-checklist of where we expect to be in life, what should or shouldn’t happen, and the typical expectations we set for ourselves. It’s good to have our own personal checklist because it helps to set and achieve goals, but we also need to stop and embrace what we currently have and be grateful for it, regardless of how behind or ahead we are on our journey.

So just a reminder to be thankful for the things you have – anything from the air in your lungs to your car, your job, the people in your life, etc! ❤
