I've been looking forward to this Monday for a change. Monday's have started to hold a certain quality of "freshness," a day to be optimistic about what is planned and hoped for for the rest of the week.
This outfit felt right.
And what I mean by that, is before I left the house I worried more about what I wanted to wear than what I thought I would look good in, if that makes sense.
Something that is so important to remember in the realm of style is to "stay true to yourself," in all it's glorious cheesiness. Yeah, sometimes that means you won't be super trendy, and sometimes that might mean you try to bend the fashion rules a little bit. But your style should be different than anyone else's because you are different than anyone else!
And yeah, I made some fashion mistakes, and wore things that now make me a little embarrassed, but what I miss most is that my identity was so secure I had the boldness to just "go for it" and not be afraid to make a mistake (I'm talking about you, red pixie cut).
But instead of rain, we got this beautiful evening. The way the sun was setting and reflecting off the clouds, it actually turned everything a shade of pale pink! It was so pretty! It made for some funky picture lighting, but it was really fun.
This shirt probably isn't something I would pay full price for (THRIFT HACK: YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND FLANNELS AT THRIFT STORES) but I've been purposely saving the remainders of a Christmas gift card for something like this. I got this shirt and a white dress on a "buy one get one 50% off" sale, so I felt pretty good about it.
Also, what a stud is this husband of mine???
I will never feel like we have enough pictures together.
