Have you ever been on that playdate with the mom who looks like a million dollars? I have. Just the other day, I was on a playdate with a mom who had on the most gorgeous earrings I’d ever seen. I was envious. I started discussing our days, and I quickly realized that her day wasn’t going any better than mine was at that time. We both had children who had randomly woken up in the middle of the night. We both had children who had been cranky from teething. The #1 difference between the two of us was that she had spruced up her look with beautiful earrings. They really added to that put together look.
I remember looking at myself in the mirror of the bathroom nearby and thinking about how tired I looked. Did she really look less tired because she had sparkly earrings? Probably not. I was probably imagining that, but I wasn’t imagining how I knew the difference would make me feel. This just proves that sometimes outward appearance has an effect on how you feel on the inside.

What was my solution? My solution was to head over to Vintage Meet Modern, and I considered what items I’d love to have for myself. I couldn’t buy them all, but I wanted to do it. Trust me. You’ll really want to do it too.
