Smile Often

With everything going on this year, it's sometimes hard to remember to smile. Luckily, if you forget, this mural reminds you to do so! Plus, with its bright, vibrant colors, you really can't help but smile! Last week, I went to this this fun mural that's located at the Woodbridge Village Center in Irvine. One of the things that always makes me smile is the thrill of discovering a new mural! The other thing that makes me smile is shopping summer sales and getting great deals! Luckily, the summer sales this year are really, really good. For example, I picked up this fun pleated rainbow skirt a couple weeks ago on sale and it turned out to be a perfect match for the mural. Between the new skirt and the new mural, I was smiling from ear to ear!

While this skirt would go with so many options, I thought for summer it would look fabulous with my "With a Twist" tee. Another thing that makes me smile is a fun statement tee and I certainly have a lot of them in a variety of colors with a variety of statements on them! I particularly like the statement on this one because the thought of having a drink with a twist, especially in this hot weather and during these stressful times, is always a smile inducing idea as well!

    1. Thanks! I would say the skirt runs true to size. I took my normal size in J.Crew and it was a perfect fit. I hope this helps!
