Romping between the raindrops…


Falon boutique aztec print romper, swallow's heart gold dipped arrowhead necklace, bubbles bodywear lace bandeau, HL collection floral cocktail ring, boho outfit, hippie outfit, festival outfit, spring outfit

Love this romper!  The last time I wore it, I was shivering my tukus off in Dublin!  It was perfect for this chilly, rainy spring day, though.  I even taught dance classes in it!  

Aside from the awesome-Aztec-ness of this look, I want to talk about smiles.  Some people smile all the time.  They smile because they are happy.  They smile because they genuinely want to smile.  Some people almost never smile.  For them to smile, they must be touched on the deepest level of human emotion.  Then there are people like me.  We smile either because we're genuinely happy or because we just don't know what to do with our faces and have an understanding that resting B face is less than desirable.  

It's been a long week (TGIF!) and I've found that I've been pushing myself to smile.  I've been pushing myself to find reasons to smile, but really, like the rain that has come to settle over my little corner of the world, a bit of melancholy has set in.  

I don't know if it is because my dad keeps asking me when I'm going to get married/have kids/stop traveling and my mom is lamenting over my pile of degrees and lack of career.  I don't know if it is because I'm probably going to be leaving Europe in the fall and don't know what the next step is.  I don't know if it is because I'm busting my derriere trying to work as many hours as I possibly can so I can knock out the last bit of student debt I accumulated as an undergrad and I'm just beat.  

I just know that I'm smiling because it looks good on the outside and I want the inside to feel it, too.

  10. Hello greeting and good wishes.

    Beautiful outfit. You look gorgeous. You have a ravishing smile.

    Your thoughts about SMILE made me smile. Smile is a very beautiful ornament on the face. It lights up the person who smiles and brings a smile on the face of others. A smile on the face also makes us feel happy inside. There is a saying to the effect that if you have nothing else to give, GIVE A SMILE. It will fill the receiver with happiness.

    Fabulous photos in wonderful surroundings.

    Wishe you all the best.

  14. You look great! I feel like I smile because I don't know what to do with my face either sometimes. And a resting bitch face might scare off tourists needing directions :/
