I’ve recently gotten back into Pinterest (you can follow me here!) after a several year hiatus, and one of my favorite things to pin are inspirational quotes. Revolutionary, I know. But, like basically all things in my life, I like my quotes to have a fashion-related twist, so I wanted to share my favorite style sayings with you today. Get inspired, throw on a gorgeous outfit, and remember that you can never be overdressed!
“Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.”
“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”
“Style is not a display of wealth but an expression of imagination.”
“Keep your heels, head, and standards high.”
“You can have anything you want, if you dress for it.”
“Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside.”
“Your clothes should be tight enough to show you’re a woman, but loose enough to show you’re a lady.”
“Bad vibes don’t go with my outfit.”
“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”
Which of these quotes is your favorite?! I thought this pretty sundress would be the perfect companion for all of these sayings about elegance and being overdressed, and you may recognize the dress as one of my incredible $1 finds in my thrift shopping haul blog post. I paired the sundress with a pastel pink purse and my favorite white heeled sandals for a light and summery look. My lipstick is actually a pink shade, although it looks more red in these photos. Combined with my retro hairstyle, this look ended up having quite the 50s housewife vibe! Not what I had intended (it was a bad hair day, and this style was the best I could do), but I suppose the retro outfit is pretty as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you have a wonderful Thursday and weekend! Oh, and can you spot the creepy photo-bombing face in one of these pics?

I had to enlarge each other pic to find the face ! Reading on my kindle. Love all of these quotes. I do like Marilyn Monroe’s.
Thanks so much, Mireille! Haha yes, once I finished taking my photos, my mom said, “Can you see me in any of them?!” Haha.
Great collection of beautiful quotes, Grace! I love your summer dress too, it’s so girly. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day. Any news about going to Scotland or that’s definitely out of the question? Aiva 😊
Thanks so much, Aiva! And sadly, my study abroad program in Scotland was cancelled… 🙁 I’m so, so bummed. But hopefully I’ll be able to study there the fall of my senior year, instead. Thanks for asking!
