An Enchanted Evening

It’s always crazy to me how putting on a pair of clothing can instantly transport you to a place and/or feeling. Whether it is a comfy hoodie that reminds you of a certain time in your life or a dress that, in all honesty, makes you feel like a million bucks. Dressing up, for me, doesn’t happen often so when I get the chance to, I go all out. I'm talking the loudest of lashes (though I am starting to reconsider this lol), the boldest liner, a shiny and comfortable pair of heels, a clutch that brings your glitter dreams to life, and a dress that says “I have arrived”.

I think we all get caught up in the to-do lists of our days, weeks and months and just do our best to make it to Friday. It's easy to just get sucked into the progression of our week weeks and lose energy to plan, reach out, and invest time in having genuine fun. I know I am always the quickest to yearn for a weekend of no plans and PJs. But, then I will be like "Girl, GET OUT! Go have some fun" and then I realize I can't just wait for someone to give me a reason to glam up, celebrate and go all out. I have to do that for myself. Even if it means grabbing my friends, telling them to get fancy, and go to a nice restaurant downtown.

So...get out of your head, plan something fun: a dinner, date, photo shoot, whatever it is! Sweats are great and all, don't get me wrong...but an glamorous evening never hurt anybody.
