Don't Worry, Be Happy.

I don't know about you gals, but this nasty Midwest weather has been bringing me down a little. I talked about it a bit in my recent blog post (HERE) but one of favorite ways to feel good and brighten my day is to wear an outfit that I love. This morning, I also shared on Instagram, that I woke up to a text from one of my best girlfriends with this quote: "Of this be sure: you do not find the happy life. You make it." it put such a smile on my face and was such a great way to start my day.

So I decided that, in hopes of brightening your day, I would pull together a few of my favorite feel good, inspirational quotes. I'm thinking with the combination of good words and great clothes, maybe I can let go of the nasty weather and stop letting it bring me down. I hope with these quotes and clothes you feel great, and you can also let go of anything standing in your way. Try and remember, you never know what someone is going through whether they're having a crappy day due to something as minor as the weather or something much more serious. Be kind, smile at a stranger, have patience... You never know how that can help brighten someone's day. Scroll down for all my outfit deets and some quotes to help brighten your days.
