Today is a lazy day, but I just browsed through a huge box of old photos that was my grandmother's. I came across a few from June 6, 1944. They were of my grandmom and a few of her friends. I don't know the story and probably never will. But they were all in a field laughing, and were dressed up by today's standards, though a few were wearing pants and shorts.

It's just inspiring because it seems so often that I want to get all dressed up and wear heels (not that I have any...) for everyday wear, but then I think it wouldn't be appropriate for activities of the day. Basically, what I'm getting at is I want to feel like I can live in all of my clothes and not worry about being overdressed or that they'll get ruined.

And just because this is supposed to take place in the 40's and this is a cute shot:

Truthfully, I've loved the clothes in this even before I cared about which styles were associated to which decades and I thought her hair was absolutely fabulous as well.
