Beauty //




Thank goodness for flippy skirts with elastic waistbands. It amazes me how many times I've worn this one, and each time I do, I feel like a million dollars. Isn't that the point of wearing clothes? Well, aside from the fact that we can't all be running around naked. But what I love about this outfit is that it sparks joy, as beautifully explained recently by Gina and Laura. If you love something, you'll feel confident in it. When you feel confident, you're happier. And when you're happy, you feel like you can conquer anything. So wear what you love and hopefully that will translate into all aspects of your life. Oh, and if it has an elastic waistband that can allow you to eat like a glutton (which I did after these pictures were taken), even better. 


On a side note, I believe it's my blog's birthday. I don't know the actual date but it was around the 15th of July in 2009. Happy birthday blog! You've been a great friend over the years. We've laughed, we've cried, and together we have made some wonderful friends. It's been six years since I started Beautygirl24 and I am still in love with (almost) everything about this community. Thank you so much for supporting me. Thank you for reading. You really have no idea how this outlet has impacted me in a positive way...More to come.

    1. Thank you! I know you'd love these pumps! Great for work because the heel is low. I wear them (especially my metallic nude pair) a ton.

  4. Happy blog birthday! I think I started reading your blog near when you first started and have loved it ever since. I've always coveted your style and admired how well you balance life, work, blogging, and staying in touch with your readers :-)

    1. Awwww you are such a sweetheart Maria. I really appreciate your support over the years. I love that neither of take blogging too seriously. Having it as a hobby and not as a job helps ;)

  5. Amen! Clothes for me are totally about feeling happy and evoking more confidence to interact with the world. You should totally feel happy and confident in this look because it is amazing on you! I love the skirt paired with the white top. Happy blog birthday! Isn't it amazing how life evolves? When mine started, I never knew where it would take me and how it would impact my life.

    1. Yes, it really is amazing. I never thought blogging would help me streamline my wardrobe, and my style has evolved a bit since I started (but maybe the fact that I'm 30 now and not still in college has a lot to do with it too). It's a great outlet! Thank you for being so sweet :)

  9. Darn, I just wrote a novel (ok maybe not that bad) but clicked on the shoe link before hitting "publish" (so easily distracted lol)
    HAPPY blogiversary! Time flies, doesn't it!?! This outfit is completely amazing as are those shoes. And you were right when you said on IG that they're something I'd wear. Wish they had half sizes...but of course that's not going to stop me from giving them a try ;)

  12. Six years is just incredibly impressive Noelle! I always admire your dedication to your blog and most especially the positive, healthy attitude you have about blogging in general and not letting it take an unhealthy, unrealistic role in your life. You look beautiful and those shoes are so fun!
