I came home from work today in a really cranky-pants mood. My shift had dragged on forever, and I had wanted to get out of there from the moment I walked in. On the way home, I was trying hard to think of something I could do this afternoon to cheer myself up. Then it occured to me.
What I need to pick me up is a ridiculous amount of skirt volume.
I am wearing:
– Green floral dress from Target (modified by me)
– Cream lace bolero from Supre
– Vintage rose brooch
– Amethyst ring
-Wizard of Oz watch
– Green feathered fascinator (handmade by me)
– Cream sandals (gifted)
– Crinoline petticoat from Vicious Venus.
– Green beaded earrings (handmade by my aunt)
A little peek under my skirt of enourmous proportions:
I adore this rose brooch, but I hardly ever wear it. I don’t really know why. I need to make it my mission to work this gorgeous piece into more of my outfits. This used to belong to my grandmother, and she gave it to me on a rainy day when I was about nine. Not for any special occasion, just because she’s generous and she loves me. What a peach!
The pick-me-up has certainly worked. You can tell by my ridiculous grin in this picture:
Oh, and you know what else cheers me up? Dandelion clocks!
What cheers you up when you’re feeling blue?
