Don't stop

Ages ago I remember putting up a picture of this vintage dress on a hanger. I also remember it didn't look all that great on the hanger either. But see, I told you it looks a lot better on! It's really quite a bright, tropical print. When I woke up in the morning, I swear the weather tried to keep me from wearing it on purpose. I refused to give in and wore it anyways and threw on some sweater tights. Problem solved! I personally think mother nature actually gave in and admired me for my determination since it ended up warming up a bit later on.
(dress- vintage, sweater- vintage, glasses- 80s purple, tights- jessica simpson, shoes- vintage)
   And if this were a family picture slide show, this is where I would say, "And this is me looking painfully awkward whilst trying to wink." I just can't do it! All dreams of ever becoming a pin-up model have gone down the drain. All because I can't wink. Sad truth. So yes, I just included this last picture to make a fool of myself. It's just something I do. Life is hardly any fun if you take yourself too seriously!
Oh well, there are surely many other aspirations I can tackle that don't require a good wink. haha
In the meantime though, since I'm sure it will take me quite a while to make up my indecisive mind, have yourselves a lovely rest of the week. 
It's almost the weekend! ♥

Oh, and thanks bunches to Beatrice from Dear Beatrice for featuring me in her style inspiration post this week. Do check her out if you don't know about her already!

Oooh! I really like your sunglasses, and that gorgeous dress, of course. It looks really good on you!

I love the last picture. I can't really wink either, so I feel ya. My mouth always has to come up on the side, kind of like how yours does. Ahh well. You can't win 'em all.
