Life is a Runway: Sunday Style Link-Up Fiesta!

Sometimes it happens to me. I wake up in the morning reminiscing of my 15-year old self. I bought this dress for my Quinceañera pictures and well, it still fits! I'm still trying to figure out a way to wear it as a 21 year old, not look like a child, and especially, in this weather, dress Fall appropriate. That was kind of challenging this morning so I just threw on this denim vest in a rush and headed out the door. I promise to think harder next time, and perfect this outfit because it is a beautiful dress, I love it! Because of the memories I have in this dress, riding a horse and posing for the camera at the edge of a man-made lake in Miami, I felt young, playful, and alive! I also felt cold but that's another story related to the fact that I am NOT in Miami, Fl. 

Anyway, I had a blessed Sabbath yesterday. Got to sing songs of thanksgiving to my Lord, heard an encouraging message about giving thanks for God's daily acts of redemption for us, and had a delicious thanksgiving potluck with our church family. The icing on the cake was a laughter-filled fall festival with the youth involving all sorts of fun. More on that later this week. 
I hope you all have a blessed week of thanksgiving!

Welcome to the first Life is a Runway Link-Up! If this is your first time visiting Lily Among Thorns, I'm so happy you're here! I hope you feel right at home! On Sundays, I will be hosting a Sunday Style Link-Up Fiesta! I'm so excited for this new addition and I'm sure we will have an amazing time meeting new people and getting to know each other!

What to wear is one of those decisions we need to make every morning! Right? (I hope so!) It says a lot about who we are, what we're feeling, and who we want to be. Life and style are very closely linked, whether we realize it or not!

Have you ever woken up in a crabby mood, put on your favorite outfit, fixed your tangled hair, put on some lipstick, and BAMM, insta-fix! You look in the mirror, feel good about the way you look, love yourself, and confidence shines on you like a star! Taking time out of your day to feel "pretty" can make a world of a difference in your day. Let's prove it together!
Follow Lily Among Thorns (It's not a MUST, but it would be sweet!)
 Link-Up a recent outfit post. How about your favorite of the week? Describe how this outfit made you feel that day, what it means to you, or what it says about you. (Again, not a MUST, but would be fun to read!)

Grab the link-up button from the sidebar and add it to your post so others can join the fiesta as well!

Visit each other and say hello!

Have a super duper Fun time!

This is super cute as is, but I'd love to see what other ways you find to style it. Reminded me of a dress-and-denim-vest combo I've been meaning to put together but haven't yet. :)

I'm so glad you've started a weekly link-up! Adding you to my Link-ups page right now.. :) And you look so cute today, and I totally know what you mean about rewearing pieces you've had for a long time. Clothes hold such powerful memories for me, and with big moments in my life, I *always* remember what I was wearing. :)
