Any Beatles fans out there? My mom took me, my sister, and her best friend to see Paul McCartney in concert a few years ago and it was definitely one of the most memorable experiences of my entire life. We got upgraded to front row seats upon arrival and it felt like he was singing just to us <3 My love for him and the Beatles comes from my mom for sure. Happiness is a Warm Gun might be my favorite song by them ever, but honestly it’s probably more because of the version done by Joe Anderson in the movie Across the Universe. You might not know, but I’m a total musical nerd (I currently have Don’t Rain on my Parade stuck in my head, no lie), so a musical with all songs by the Beatles is just heaven for me. Across the Universe came out when I was in high school, during a time of my life when I’d like to think I didn’t know much about myself, but it was still very clear that I had a deep love for musicals. I used to sing all the time when I was a kid. My mom has a home video of me singing “Belle” from Beauty and the Beast when I was like 4 and I was clearly feeling myself and loved the attention I got when I was performing. My dream job today would be to be a Broadway performer…too bad I can’t sing or dance. C’est la vie.
That was a really long explanation of how I came up with the title of this blog post lol. To recap: I love the Beatles, when I think of the Beatles I usually think of Across the Universe and my favorite song from that movie, I’ve been really happy that it’s sunny so I can dress like summer, so happiness is me being able to wear a warm-weather dress. So, that turns into Happiness is a Warm-Weather Dress. Did you follow? Since all the rain, I’m obsessed with the sunshine and try to appreciate it every time it’s out by wearing perfect little sundresses like this one. Did you know that it’s reversible?? There are little hooks in the front that you can undo and turn it into a low-back dress. How fun is that? I’m obsessed. I’ve also had this bag since last summer and still find myself grabbing for it over some of my newer bags. The bright pink is great to add a pop of color to anything.
Thanks for reading! And thank you Rebecca Minkoff for sending me this gorgeous dress!
