Guest Post - Simply Sunstar

Hi readers of Postcards From...! I'm Heather from Simply Sunstar and I am so excited to be guest blogging for Kate! She is such an adorable person and has such a kind heart, so this is such an honor!

When I asked her what she wanted to write about she told me I could be as random as I wanted but she gave me four words that she was looking for in my post: whimsical, pretty, inspiring and happy. I took this rather literally so I'm going to talk about each word!


WHIMSICAL: I immediately thought of this dress and this flower for my hair. I bought this dress months ago and it hasn't seen the light of day until now. I'm so glad I waited because what a perfect debut for this beauty! This dress makes me feel so fancy and carefree. If whimsical were a dress, this would be it!

PRETTY: I have never felt more beautiful or confident than when I started to see myself through my fiance's eyes. Every time I look back at the photos he takes of me, I'm so amazed. I feel like it's a slight glimpse into his heart. There's no better feeling than being in love! (I'm such a sap!)

INSPIRING: I wore these colored tights as inspired by Kate herself. I really had to break out of my shell when I started blogging and be more daring. Kate has really helped inspire me to be bold and wear what I love.

HAPPY: I really wanted to share this picture of me laughing at something silly my fiance was doing. Kate has the most beautiful about me: "I want my face to be engraved with laugh lines to show the happiness I have lived to know." I feel that this picture captures a pure happiness moment and you can see my laugh lines starting at 22. With every line and wrinkle, there is a story. Blogging helps us all capture these moments that may one day be forgotten.


So I truly enjoyed getting to share some of my pictures and thoughts with all of you! Thanks so much for reading my very first guest post! :)
