Hello everyone! :)
So I told myself in the very beginning of the summer I was going to watch The Notebook all of the time because it's my absolute FAVORITE movie ever and I never have time to watch it during the school year. Here it with only a week left of summer and I told myself I just had to watch the movie today. Well, I'm not embarrassed to say I cried like I do every time. Actually, I bawl my eyes out would be a better description. I'm just like... in love with this movie. When I watch it I get the jittery feeling in my stomach, and as soon as the movie is over I want to watch it again. I never get tired of watching it.
Yes, The Notebook is the best love story ever created( in my opinion, hehe!), but I get so inspired from the movie. It never fails, every time I watch the movie the next few days after all I wear is vintage clothes. Today was definitely no exception. After wiping away my tears and cleaning up my mascara, I got dressed up to do a Notebook inspired photo shoot! I wasn't even planning on doing an outfit post today, but I felt so compelled and inspired I just had to.
I have been saving this dress for a special occasion to wear to/ take picture in, and today just felt so right. I couldn't have thought of a better day to take pictures in this dress than today. The weather was perfect. Sunny, but not sweltering hot. There was a slight breeze that played with the hem of my dress and rippled the water. It was beautiful out. As soon as I got to the nature center I just felt so darn excited to take pictures! There is a little spot by a lake that I knew would be perfect. It reminded me of when Noah takes Allie out in the boat on the lake to see all of the swans...
Sigh. I'm such a romantic at heart. I can't help but be in such a dreamy and carefree mood today. I can't get the songs from the movie out of my head and I keep humming them unintentionally. For days now I'm going to be pretending that I'm Allie Hamilton and I live in the 1940's... Oh, how I truly wish!!
Hope everyone is feeling very inspired and cherishing these last few beautiful days of summer!
