The length and burden of winter can be crushing sometimes. So many bleak days that blend into one another with little, to nothing, to look forward to. Most people think, what's the point in getting dressed up? It's cold, it's snowy, and I don't feel like putting effort in. We all have those days--sometimes winter just wins over our emotions and puts us into 'one of those' moods.

Don't let winter hold you back though from donning what you love. If anything, winter should be even more of an excuse to wear something fun, something that makes you happy, something that makes others smile. It's during this time of the year that you need to have something to brighten your day and give you a reason to get up in the morning and look forward to the day's events. Whether it be a color, a silhouette, a style of dress, or even just a favorite piece...chase the winter blues away every once in awhile and say,

"This is my day, and nothing is going to stop me."

With much love, Lauren.

I agree. Sometimes I decide to dress up a bit for no particular reason just because it cheers me up! Being home schooled, I stay indoors most of the winter simply because I don't have anywhere to go. There's nothing like sporting a pretty dress and bright lipstick to perk up my mood and keep the winter blues at bay.

On a side note, did you use rollers or an iron for your hair here? I'm a tad bit envious :) It's so lovely!

Such a beautiful dress, so feminine, elegant and lovely colors.

Although I hate the bone chilling cold of the winter I often lament that I do not get to wear the gorgeous warm winter clothing like overcoats, jackets, woolens, boots and all the pretty things which are exclusive for cold climate. *sigh* the grass is always greener on the other side I guess.
