SMILE

If there is anything I've learned about myself throughout my life, it's that I am a creature of repetition and favorites, at least when it comes to my clothes. I'm not gonna lie. I go shopping, find an outfit that I love, and wear that outfit as often as I can in one week without anyone noticing (at least, that's what I attempt). And that's why I don't think I could ever be a "for reals" fashion blogger. I don't go shopping enough and I wear the same thing practically every day, or at least the same three outfits and just cycle through them throughout the week.
Does anyone else have this problem? I assume as I get older (and more loaded with cash), that this problem will eventually fade away as my wardrobe grows, but for now, I'm sticking with my favorites. Wanna see one of them?
I guess this is more of a Spring-y outfit, but like I said; I'm a creature of repetition and favorites.

cardigan: thrifted
button-up blouse: kohl's
pants: thrifted
shoes: forever 21
belt: pac sun
Here's another thing I've been thinking about; when I was 14 years old and had finally grown out of my awkward stage and lost the braces, I started getting compliments on my smile. Not all the time, but I remember my uncle Mike telling me that I had one of the best, genuine smiles he had ever seen, probably because I let my eyes get all squinty. Then, a couple of years later, I was told by Sister Dalton (the General President of the Young Women organization of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints) that I had "the most beautiful smile," and to "never stop smiling." I think we've all had one of those experiences when someone gave us a compliment or said something that made us feel so good that we knew we would never forget it. That was definitely a moment for me.
Anyway, the point is, I like to smile and I try to do it often. But every once in a while, I like to attempt serious faces. So don't judge. Just appreciate my willingness to branch out every now-and-then!

Thanks for stopping by! And until next time, keep smiling!
