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.

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.
