Guest Blogger: Give Me Bows

Hi lovely Shades of Monet readers!
My name is Elyse and I write a little blog called Give Me Bows. I am so excited to do a guest post for the super-sweet-and-oh-so-stylish Marisa while she settles into her new home. I have been very fortunate to make (online) friends with Marisa over the past few months, and we definitely have a mutual obsession with vintage clothing, floral prints and dresses!

This is an outfit I wore to brunch on the weekend. We go to brunch every single Sunday at one of our local cafes to enjoy a lonnngggg breakfast with lots of coffee and magazines - it's so refreshing, and the perfect excuse to get dolled up! Although it can be really tempting to stay in my comfortably pajamas all weekend long, I really do find that I have a much better attitude towards the day, and I am way more productive, when I take the time each morning to put on an outfit I enjoy and feel comfortable in. 

Besides, life is too short and every day is precious, that is definitely a good enough excuse by itself to wear something you love! I don't think it should matter whether you have a special occasion or you are just lounging around the house. Wishing you all a lovely day x
