Marry the One Who Makes You Laugh

There is a quote rolling around Pinterest recently. I will admit...I pinned it. I pin everything (jk). I do pin a lot though. I just love the ease of seeing something I know I will want to do later (or at the very least look at again later) and putting it in a place where I will be able to easily find it and recognize it by picture.

Anyway, back to this quote...It was said/written/who knows what--by Joanne Woodward. She said, "Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that's a real treat." It is so true. That is not to say that I don't find my husband extremely sexy (because believe me...I do ;) lol) but it is to say that you should not marry someone for their looks. You need to click with someone, to be able to be your true self around them, to grow with them, to trust them, to have fun with them, to laugh with them, to love them unconditionally. Today I had a good dose of the laughter that Ryan brings to my life. What can I say, he's a funny guy. :) He makes me laugh...and you will see just a little bit of it in one of the pictures for my outfit of the day. ...The picture where my eyes are so squinty that I could probably barely see at that moment. Yeah...that's what he does to me. :) That is the kind of joy that my love brings to my life. I am blessed. :) :)

Anyway, enjoy my outfit of the day (or don't! lol). I wore a floral dress (Angie), black leggins (Target?), fuchsia tank (Loft), rosette flat sandals (NY&Co.), brown belt (no name...TJ Maxx). :)
 Now, I have never layered this belt (or any belt) over this dress. I never thought to layer a brown belt over the dress because, well...quite frankly it doesn't match. BUT life isn't always about matching and neither is fashion. I actually quite like this together. It gives the outfit a little more oomph.
 This is my "I'm laughing so hard that I can't see but I'm trying not to show it because I'm taking pictures for my blog!" face. :) Also, in this picture I get to show you something else I love...pockets! I ADORE when dresses and skirts have pockets! :)

Do you like dresses and skirts with pockets?? I think they are so fun! :)


  1. hmmmm not totally loving the belt with the dress, maybe a patent black one would be nicer????

    1. I would totally rock a black belt similar to this one with this dress...just haven't found one I like enough to buy yet! :)
