Monday morning has my brain all foggy, so instead of me writing to you let's let someone else do it. I hope that you take the time to be happy today:
“Promise yourself, to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
— Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them
And while we're marinating in the feeling of how wonderful this Monday is going to be (because we're amazing), let's also die a little inside over this outfit. Tropical prints plus straw clutches equals my power outfit. I feel unstoppable in this. It is my new belief that every girl should own swishy pants and a vintage wicker handbag, just so they can feel as happy as I do walking down the street. If you're looking for a shop that has them- as well as a heck of a lot of other vintage delights- I'd recommend New Old Fashion Vintage. I have a ton of dresses and skirts from them that are seriously my go-to favorite items, so if you're in a shopping mood hop on over and say hi to Amelia (the brains behind the operation)! And to give you an idea of the summery goods they have in stock right now, I chose three of my favorite items below- enjoy!
