Thursday Moda #212: Looking Forward, Part Two.
Life is wonderful - we all know that. Despite its overwhelming abundance of frustration, sickness, pandemic viruses, uncertainty, despair, fear, fever, shortness of breath, tears and anger that it is filled with lately. Planet Earth is still sacred, it is our mother, our nature, our air, our oxygen, our breath of fresh air. We may feel like we are on the edge right now and I don't blame anyone for feeling that way, but this world has gravity, too, things will change. Because remember what goes up must come down and vice versa. WE CANNOT LOOK BACK, IT WON'T DO US ANY GOOD. INSTEAD, WE HAVE TO BE...
I wrote about looking forward in last week's Thursday Moda post also. (Please read it, if you haven't yet.) And how do we look forward?! By being active in our our daily routines as much as we can. By staying positive that at some point things will get better. By trying to find some normalcy day in and day out. By breathing the fresh air outside and admiring beautiful Mother Nature with all it has to give us. I did just that a few weeks ago when these photos were taken. Such a delightful background too, true natural beauty all around me, plus it was a beautiful day full of Spring's delights! Look at that sky and those fluffy clouds!?! What the photos don't show well is how clear the water was, you could see the little fishes swimming in it. What these photos don't show at all is how there were a couple of young guys in their twenties fishing, right there in the middle of the water that came up to their knees. What these photos don't show is a couple in love that exchanged stolen kisses, or a grandmother with her three grandkids, or a little family of four having a picnic outside. But these photos do show how much fun I had. They show a true smile and a face filled with hope. They show eyes that stared deep into all the beauty surrounding me and admiring it, as I wanted to capture as many photos as possible, while still enjoying my time outdoors, far away from everyone else, not stuck with a mask on my face. These photos also captured a little bit, my poor attempts at exercising a little outside. They show my love of bright lipstick and the color red. They also show my love of my new-ish and only pair of denim overalls which were worth every penny. They are Madewell after all and they are so well-made. I have worn them at least 5 times this year. With Memorial Day Weekend coming up this week, I think this pair of medium-wash denim overalls paired with a red t-shirt is a perfectly patriotic outfit as an inspiration for some RED+WHITE+BLUE STYLE. You can make this Memorial Day-Inspired OOTD even more Americana by pairing it with a pair of crisp white sneakers like Converse, Keds or Adidas. =) What do you think?!
Thank you to all 50 of you who linked up last week. I enjoyed seeing your Spring Looks. You are rocking your everyday style, despite quarantine. Last week I noticed a lot of pretty shades of blue + aqua, white pants - a must-have piece for Spring and Summer, comfortable neutral sandals and a pop of bordeaux. There are a couple of Fabulous French Fashionistas in my favorite choices this week, too.
'Tropical Prints Are Perfect for Spring and Summer' you are right, Nora. Shades of blue, mint and green also look so Springy with white and a straw bag.
I would totally wear this Outfit right now, Jill. It is very much my style. That light off-shoulder sweater looks great with 'Cute and Comfy Wedge Sandals'.
I love an adorable Mommy+Daughter stylish duo. Christine and her daughter style 'The Effortless Chic Little White Dress' - theirs are linen little white dresses, which they paired with matching real flower crowns and matching gold sandals.
Katie loves a good print and a statement bag. 'Dots and Stripes' in blue are always a good idea for Spring and Summer.
Paula did her 'Stitch Fix Review for May 2020' and I loved her floral green halter-neck dress on her!
French-Canadian Beauty Lucy showed many beautiful, chic, stylish looks on her 'Fabulous Fridays' post. I loved her wide-legged floral pants with that patterned maroon+purple blouse. Tres Bien!
