keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.

I am addicted to the sunshine. Typically, I am the type of person who likes to stay indoors and read a book or watch TV in my spare time. Not this year. I have days where I am itching to go outside and enjoy the sun. I've even been trying to go running when the days are nice or open up my windows to let the warm breeze in.

Unfortunately, today is rainy and horrible. What a letdown! To soothe my soul, I've been looking at photos of the beach - the kind that just scream sunshine! I am ready for carefree days in the sun with people that make me smile. If you're lacking inspiration (or if the weather is just as bad where you live!) here are some of the images that are getting me through the week.







What inspires you lately?

  3. Sun is hiding from germany. I really cant wait to wear skirts and shorts. Summer creates a mood, which lets me create awesome summer looks. Feeling the sun I instantly get in the mood to dress brighter and little boho and a little rocky like for an festival. Summer itself is inspring!

  4. Thanks Shannon for your sweet comment today! :) I also love to stay indoors, but this year is so different for me. I am loving being outside more than normal for some reason, but today is also rainy and yucky here. Love your pictures here. Enjoy the rest of your day! xx Pip

  21. I've had to be EXTRA careful in the sun due to getting this nasty sunburn from an hour long hike that turned into 4 hours! I completely forgot to put on sunscreen :/ Now it's spf 70 for me....but I can never get enough sun! It's the so cal gal in me :)
    I have sadly not been inspired by much....just consumed with work as we come upon our spring dance recital...just need to get over that hurdle and I think I can start enjoying life MUCH more.
