If Only Everyday Were Like Today...









Polka Dot Dress: Gift from StopStaring!
Red 1950's Hat, Jewelry, Heels: Thrifted.

Hello, Hello there everyone!
I had truly thee most lovely day ever today. It seemed as though everything just came together perfectly... I got to wear a beautiful new dress, travel to a beautiful new place, and enjoy the beautiful, sunny weather today!

First off, let me start off with this dress... When the rockabilly clothing store Stopstaring! contacted me and asked me if I wanted to try one of their dresses and do a review, of course I absolutely jumped at the chance! StopStaring! has some of the most beautiful vintage inspired dresses and play suits that I've always dreamed of owning... It was a true challenge to pick out the dress I liked the most! However, when I saw this darling polka dot dress I knew for sure which one I wanted, hehe! The shipping was super fast for them being out of California and shipping to Ohio, and I was literally jumping up and down with excitement when I received the dress! I wasn't disappointed upon opening the package to take out the beautiful, 50's inspired polka dot sundress. The dress came with the white belt, and I just think the little bows on the shoulders are the perfect little touch! I would completely recommend you all go check out StopStaring! and their amazing dresses... For all you vintage loving gal's this store is a total dream!

So you all are probably wondering where these pictures were actually taken at now! Well, I actually skipped school today to go to this place called the Schnormeier gardens... It was imperative that I go today because the gardens are only open for one week out of the entire year for the public to tour, and it was 75 acres of pure beauty... I've never been to a place to peaceful and relaxing as these gardens. It was like the dream place where I would just love to spend everyday of my summer!
I had such a lovely time today in my new dress and going on an adventure to a new, exciting place. I hope you all had just a lovely day, as well! :)
With much love, Lauren.

P.S. I've got another little retro surprise for you all tomorrow that I can't wait to share, tehe...

You look simply gorgeous in your polka dot dress, Lauren! Perfect days like this one are rare. Everything came together for you. The weather cooperated, the gardens were beautiful and relaxing, the dress was everything that you hoped it would be and you looked and felt your best. Now's the time to get yourself "anchored" to all of those good feelings. The gardens can be a safe place for you to go in your mind whenever you need to collect yourself. Next time you're having a challenging day just close your eyes and return in your imagination to this fine day and re-experience it in every detail. It will help turn your mood around and get you back on track.
