Find a penny, pick it up…

Dear Kate Spade, if your prices weren’t so exorbitant I’d rock more than your beautiful quotes. I will continue to love you even though we can’t really be together the way I would like us to be. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

Yours truly, Playful-Penny-Pincher

If you had to describe yourself in four words, which would you choose? It’s okay if you want to use sexy & beast, I won’t judge or tell you you’re wrong. I’ll probably just tell you you’re awesome. Rules are everywhere, so I choose to not really have any around here. Hope you’re cool with that?

You are a miracle

Curve: the loveliest distance between two points.

Our bodies are incredible — too often in life we forget to love them like we should. When we practice self-hate we begin to build insecurities — a nasty cycle that society has shaped to it’s liking. When you’re poking & prodding at the very thing that keeps you alive, perhaps take a second to remind yourself about how much that “not perfect enough” body does for you every time you take a breath, step, or experience emotion.

We tend to bully ourselves to a point that we would never imagine doing to anyone else. People spend their entire lives studying the human body & are discovering new things every single day. Being aware of even half of the miraculous things our bodies can do makes me want to be sure my body is in it’s very best condition.

If you can’t seem to get your ass off the couch to get your heart pumping, think about all of the people who aren’t able to run & jump & lift heavy objects because their body simply will not allow it. Those that need help to do everyday taks. How about those that once knew what it felt like to have legs of jelly after fighting to finish a run, but suffered injuries from an accident that stops them from doing so? Those people would kill to have what you are complaining about. This goes with everything in life — we must remember to shine light & show gratitude for our blessings.

Thank your body. Treat it with great love & care. Fill it with things you don’t have to question. I know I’d rather pay more for a quality diet & lifestyle now so that I can experience a few more years of this beautiful life as a result.

Think about it.

I love the simplicity of maxi skirts matched with denim. This is my favorite look right now especially for Spring. It’s easy, comfortable and not too done up. The only thing I might add for an evening look would be a pretty pink or coral lip like this or this. Women don’t need glitz and glamour all the time. Smile, be good to people, and the rest will take care of itself.

What’s your favorite look for this Spring?

 

If I could…

wear anything today, it would be this. I think.

Things I’m Loving

This eye mask that can help you get some sweet sleeps, even when you aren’t feeling so sweet.

Ankle cuffs for the fashionistas

Light sweaters for Spring

Pink lips

Women who are beautiful and classy.

This, because it makes no sense at all and all the sense in the world at the same exact time.

This gorgeous chair that is out of stock from Anthropologie. Breaking my heart but inspiring me to find something even better.

Sea Of Shoes & Atlantis Home

I am loving the two new fashion blogs I have found — especially since one is ran by a daughter & the other is ran by her mother. Sea Of Shoes is Jane Aldridge’s personal style blog that focuses on the celebration of a good shoe. Atlantis Home is her mums blog where she covers all things fashionable including her own line “Atlantis Dry”. They are quite the style duo. What do you think?
