The Glad Game

Outfit Details:
Cotton Candy Stand Dress: originally from ModCloth
(Purchased from Kate of Scathingly Brilliant & Sweet and Lovely)
Boater hat: River Island
Kimchi Blue T-Strap Flats: Urban Outfitters
Candyland Cotton Candy Necklace: Betsey Johnson (available on Amazon)

This outfit seemed fitting for a Sunday afternoon.  For some reason, this ensemble reminds me of the movie Pollyanna (the 1960s one with Hayley Mills), even though the style of that film was early 1900s, and this outfit is clearly... well, not that.  But specifically, it reminds me of all the exciting things they're going to do at the bazaar they hold for the town.  Maybe it just reminds me of the cake, though.

...Or maybe it's the hat.

What's really strange is that I didn't even know this dress was called "the cotton candy stand dress" until I looked it up just now; the necklace and the dress just reminded me of each other!

Pollyanna plays this game a lot called "The Glad Game," which basically entails finding something positive even in the saddest situations.  I was feeling so thankful for the weather when I took these, that I couldn't help playing the game myself.  In spite of all the frustrating and upsetting things that happen in our lives, I think it's important to find something you can smile about every day.

Hope you have something to smile about, too.
