sunnies: 99 store | jacket: BB Dakota | ears: POParazzice | cami: old | jeans: old | shoes: Speed Limit 99 | clutch: vintage (T) | ring: Chuck E. Cheese (what?)


John Eldredge, in his book Wild at Heart, describes three longings that lie at the heart of every man:  a battle to fight, a beauty to rescue, an adventure to live. He also ventures to say that women have three longings of the heart as well: to be fought for, to share in an adventure, and to have her beauty unveiled. “Not to conjure,” Eldredge explains, “but to unveil.  Most women feel the pressure to be beautiful from very young, but that is not what I speak of. There is also a deep desire to simply and truly be the beauty and be delighted in. Most little girls will remember playing dress up, or wedding day, or ‘twirling skirts,’ those flowing dresses that were perfect for spinning around in.  She’ll put her pretty dress on, come into the living room and twirl. What she longs for is to capture her daddy’s delight.”

I hope you feel beautiful today, because you are!

P.S. This is the BB Dakota jacket that I also have a size L in.  Stay tuned to my shop page!
