I Feel Good!

6 Comments

You know how there are some things that just make you feel good? The outfit I wore yesterday is one of those things. I’ve had the dress for years – thrifted sometime, somewhere. I love the colours & the pattern & the fit – it’s made of super comfortable cotton. I shortened it at some point as well. Also wearing my new favourite shoes. I don’t have a lot of Summer shoes besides flip-flops so these will get a lot of wear this season.

I love it when style & comfort coincide. I felt confident in these clothes, funky & comfy too. What more could you ask for? I am hoping to have the same sensation in less than a week when I get to cross an item off my bucket list. We’re going to see U2 in concert! I am so excited.

 

 

It's glass!

I tried unsuccessfully to do 60s eye makeup – you know, the heavy eyeliner thing. I really want to learn how to do it. Love that look!

Dress: Vintage – thrifted
Jeans: 2BWY
Shoes: Blowfish – Gimik
Earrings & Ring: ?

We also started on a project for the boys that I will write about soon. I saw the idea on Pinterest to create an outdoor chalkboard. We got the board mounted, but still have to sand, prime & paint it. This will happen when it quits snowing! Yes, we had snow yesterday. Craziness. I’m hoping to get my garden planted before July! We shall see.

  1. Never ever plant your garden before mid-June UNLESS there is a greenhouse involved! Now spinach and peas that’s a different story. Love the outfit!

  2. I love the bright dress! You’re like a funked up vintage housewife! How was U2??? I’m going to see them on Wed night and can’t wait. I’ve seen them before and it was fantastic!!

    • I like the idea of being a funked up vintage housewife! We are actually going to see U2 on Saturday – so you get to see them before we do. Let me know how it is. I’m sure it will be fab. I am so excited! What are you wearing? I still haven’t figured it out. I want something funky & comfy!

  3. Hope you had a wonderful time seeing U2. I saw them w/ Muse last year and they were incredible!! Anyways, I love that top…what a cool find! The colors and pattern are 70s perfection:)

  4. Pretty ring! Your shirt is really neat, and I love your shoes. Your 60s eye make up is pretty good! I saw a tutorial a while ago on another blog for the winged eyeliner, and it was so easy to do. Here’s one of my post where I linked to it (definitely check it out, its an amazing tutorial – especially if you are impatient or have unsteady hands like me!) http://www.kirstinmarie.com/2011/04/cat-eyes-meow.html
