If You're A Bird I'm A Bird.

Chadwicks 1940's Inspired Dress: Thrifted.
Black T-Strap Heels: Target.
Pearl Screw On Earrings: Thrifted.

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!

You look sooo pretty!! You look like you're straight out of the movie! I've never seen The Notebook, but I've seen lots of pictures and I really want to see the movie. There's no problem with being romantic anyway!:)

The first time I watched it I cried like a baby. The 2nd and 3rd time I was able to appreciate the fashion so much more. The 4th time I loved looking at the architecture. The 5th time, I went back to crying like a baby!

I understand why you love the movie so much!
