Happy Saturday! I have a sweet, dainty outfit to share with you today that channels that well known slogan "Think Pink!" from the classic film: "Funny Face". When I decided to pair a vintage-inspired floral & lace dress that I had fashioned (see how I styled it again here) with my pink lipstick, I knew I had a sure-fire winner of an outfit.

While in the midst of a blogging meeting (ooh, a little behind the scenes secret...) we three were trying to figure out what to do for today's post, and both Brigid and Charlotte suggested I post an outfit. Well, sure! Why not? Um... what kind of outfit? In the end I made up my mind to share a simple "everyday" kind of ensemble, and so this refashioned dress is what I came up with. Hope you like it! I also want to share some of my own personal musings for this week, so lets begin! (Just for the record, I am not allowed to tell you the names of my funny photo "props") :)

Somedays you want to return to your childhood and be 11. Others you want to fast forward and be 19.
Somedays you look at old photos and long for seasons past. Others you can hardly sit still for anticipation of what's ahead.
Somedays you listen to 1940's Swing Music. Others you rediscover a modern artist and listen non-stop.
Somedays you get everything on your schedule checked off. Others you instead run around in a field while your sister is snapping the shutter in your direction.
Somedays you are so discontent you just want to hunker down and cry. Others you're as happy as a lark.

There they were, in their usual spot in the back of the sanctuary, snickering and talking about whatever boys talk about, and I had to walk past them to get out of the sanctuary. I didn't have to, there was another aisle that led right to the door, but it was a rather "frightening" game my sisters, girlfriends, and I would play. I was about 6 or so, and those boys, as far as I was concerned (even though I did have what you would call a crush on one of them. Shocking, I know!), were monsters. Not that they were fierce or mean, but they were just plain scary to the mind of a 6 year old girl. We would dare one another to walk past them, and walk we would, trembling in our patent leather church shoes. The boys wouldn't say anything. They just continued talking about whatever they were going on about, completely ignoring the foolish girls walking past them. But what a dramatic event we had just gone through. "We made it!" we would say, "And the boys didn't do a thing!" And on we would skip without a care in the world, until we forced ourselves to do it again.
Years past, and I grew out of that silly, girlish fear. Or so I thought.

Hello my dears!
Guess what? This post marks the last in my series of How We Play! You all must know that I have not even begun to exhaust the the amount of cataloguing I could still do with this series. But since a great majority of you have been pleading for more hairstyle tutorials, and since Tuesdays are my regular posting days, I feel I must bring an end to How We Play. Perhaps one day I will rummage through old drawers and find some toys to share with you all again, but for now, it is time to move on. Tally ho and tootle pip!

I am so delighted to share this dress with you all today, since it is one of my last Sunday dresses that I have never worn here on our blog! Besides this, there is a great sense of excitement bubbling around our house over the release of our new CD, as you all can imagine!
