Life Punches and Picnics just have a bad day. Sometimes it's because you had a horrible dream, so you woke up in a weird mood that made you just want to hate the day. Sometimes it's because you're just having bad luck with random things all day and it makes you just want to punch the day in its face. Sometimes you're so tired and overworked that you know you should just admit defeat to the day as soon as you get out of bed because it's going to kick you in the ass and there's nothing you can do about it because you are too exhausted to care. Sometimes...your day just SUCKS.





I had one of these days recently where I was late or almost late to everything I had to go to because of head-on collisions causing the road to be blocked off or forgetting things that were important. Oh, and let's not get started on getting stuck behind a school bus. So many traffic annoyances, so little time. I could probably write an entire post on all of the things that annoy me while driving. That could be interesting.




Whenever I have these days, I am usually not pleasant to be around. I'm probably going to be swearing, yelling, and occasionally crying if things are that frustrating, and it's not going to be pretty. The exception to this is if I'm in a professional setting, of course. I'm not going to go apeshit at work or if I'm playing with my niece or something. Actually, my niece usually makes bad days feel a little better, except when she screeches at 8 in the morning and wakes me up, then continues to screech so I can't get back to sleep. Ahh, children. I'm getting off topic...





I find it the most helpful to have someone to go to when you're having a bad day where you can just vent and have a good cry and have them say, "yeah, that sucks" and then move on from it. Sometimes you just need 10 minutes to feel badly about things, then you're good. It helps to have someone who isn't going to judge you for freaking out for a little bit, too.





When these pictures were taken,  I wasn't having a particularly bad day but for some reason I was a little cranky. It was really windy, which made things colder and annoying to take pictures in and I had re-ripped a part of this dress that I had sewn up. Oh, and there was goose poop EVERYWHERE in this grass. Other than that, it was a good day.


Dress: Vintage//Sweater: Take Out//Tights: L'eggs//Shoes: Dana Buchman via Kohl's//Strawberry Pin: Vintage
I figured this dress would be appropriate for a picnic. It's a vintage dress that I think I got off eBay back when I was obsessed with searching eBay for the perfect vintage dress. Sometimes I wish I still had the time (and money) to do that. Anyway...I love having picnics and I'm glad that it's finally warm enough to start having them again. Next time maybe we will have one when it's not so windy out. ;)


  1. Adorable dress, very picnic-appropriate! :)

  2. Hope this day is a better one.

    You look lovely, like going on a picnic.

  3. Oh dear, I hate days like that! Just when you have to trust God had a reason- sometimes I think, maybe getting stuck in traffic kept me from getting in an accident myself. Anyways- you look darling <3 Alex

  4. Gotta love the picnic look :) Gingham is always a lovely thing!

  5. I def feel you on the bad day venting thing! At least you look adorable. That dress is on point.


  6. Aw man, I hope your days get a little smoother! If we were all sunshine and flowers every day well, we'd all be lying to ourselves. Gotta get it out sometimes on the blog. On the upside, you look darling in that red dress!

  7. Ugh.... I feel your pain girl! Once I had a bad three years! Ha! No joke. I seriously hate goose poop, especially when your trying to be all cute taking pictures and stuff. You look amazing.

  8. These photos are so adorable..that dress is perfect <3
