Naked Sunshine

Gushing winds, blooming cherry blossoms, sunshine kissing my naked skin. I'm at peace.

This morning, I had this smile on my face. It's not often that I smile like this in the morning. I'm so not a morning person.

 It could be due to the fact that I had a great work out this morning. Or maybe because I had an anti-carb breakfast? Who knows! As I continued to analyze my interesting mood, I picked out my outfit for the day.
An Indie styled dress I purchased at a vintage boutique in Indianapolis, IN with baby doll shoes my older cousin left in my room. I decided to go naked today and not wear any earrings or necklaces. Just a simple purple and gold bracelet to give my outfit that extra flare.
Makeup slim to none. A dash of blush by Bobbie Brown, dark brown lipstick, eyeliner and mascara. I felt naturally elegant and free of stress. I looked at the end result and cracked this smile. That's when I realized why:

My last semester of my senior year has been the ultimate struggle and I know a few people who can relate. I don't have a job or a car. Money or a defined plan. The three things I do have are my serenity, courage and wisdom. I have the power. And this morning, I recognized that power. So this morning, I give you Naked Sunshine.

Such a beautiful morning with such beautiful people!

Here are a few inspirational quotes that have uplifted my spirits this morning:

"Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps, if you are not willing to move your feet."
"The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another." 
- William James
"You were given this life because you were strong enough to live it." 

Stay beautiful. Stay driven. Stay stylish.
