“Here comes the sun. Here comes the sun and I say it’s alright. Little darling it’s been a long cold lonely winter. Little darling the smiles are returning to their faces.”- The Beatles
Today’s post is inspired by The Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun and enjoying the simple things in life again. I’ve loved this song since I was kid. Yeah, I was bouncing around to the Beatles since I was in my mother’s womb. I use to live for playing my parent’s Beatles records and 8 Tracks and jamming out with them and my siblings in the living room. I can still remember holding Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band record album in awe and my siblings and I playing it over and over till the words themselves became locked inside our heads forever. Even when we’d all squish into my dad’s brown Oldsmobile, to go get a slice of pizza from Frankie’s or a hotdog from Arbetter’s, The Beatles would be playing. It’s safe to say, though we are all leading different and separate lives, The Beatles will forever bring us always back together. It was such good times back then. Sometimes, life can get so complicated that we forget to live in the present like we did as children and to bask in the simple things. Like sitting outside to watch the sunset, playing video games, watching an old flick, going rollerskating or bowling. What as a kid made you happy? Make a list. It’s time to revisit those things. Because it is indeed those things that give us the same freedom that was running through our childhood veins. I hope today’s post brings some sunshine back into your life.

I styled this outfit to be simple and a reflection of my childhood spirit. I use to run around in boots, pull up wild daisies from the backyard and my hair was tousled and a bit messy all the time (I was never a fan of blow-drying or brushing my hair…I’m still not). p.s. how amazing is the Miami-made daisy necklace I’m donning? See down below where I scored it.
