Don't Tess with Me (Dolly and Dotty)

Well, I had a fun surprise recently! I love to enter giveaways and contests that my fellow blogger goddesses hold and sometimes I even win them! Sometimes - let's not get too crazy here. I still stand by the claim that I am not very lucky and don't win very many contests. 

Recently, one of my favorite style bloggers, The Soubrette Brunette, had a Dolly and Dotty giveaway. I, of course, immediately entered and did all the required steps to be qualified to win. Like all the other giveaways I enter, I promptly forgot about it and carried on with life.

What's Sara Reading? A Happy Catastrophe

 

Oh my word. I haven't shared a book review in A YEAR!? How is that even POSSIBLE? I seriously have no idea where the last 12 months have gone but, then again, I guess you could say I had a few other things on my mind since then.

Well, despite the gargantuan gap, I am here today to share a book review and inspired outfit! Let's bring the "What's Sara Reading?" series back from the literary dead, shall we? I ordered A Happy Catastrophe during a Kindle sale, thinking nothing of it besides thinking it sounded like a good read, and it became a happy little moment of kismet.

Falling for Fall (Vintage Sweater)

#SorryNotSorry that, from my perspective, it's now fall. I can't help it. While I enjoyed some warmer weather this summer, once we enter the months that end in "ber," it's FALL and all things spook. Then the countdown to Christmas is ON!

Juggling Judy (Collectif)



When I think of the name Judy (of which this gorgeous dress is named), I think of two things: my mother (I feel like everyone knows a mom named Judy) and that truly bizarre YouTube channel that blew up back in the beginning of viral videos by the name of Fred. Anyone else obsessively watch his videos as tweens and quote them daily? "I LOVE Judy! But she's such a brat!" No? No one? Just me and my sister?

OK then.

Ch-Ch-Changes (Unique Vintage)

Well! As the title of this post may suggest, this summer has been full of surprises, twists, and turns. Some of them I am not sharing openly with the world but on top of those private challenges, there haven some cherries on top, let me tell you!

As you may have heard from Instagram and last week's blog (I mentioned it there quickly), I am now unemployed. I took a week off earlier this month to use up from PTO I'd soon lose and upon my return - at 9am on Monday morning - I had a meeting with my boss and HR in which I was told my position had been eliminated.

Misty Eyed (ft. Ebone & Ivory)


Check out my new wheels! Ever since Cody and I rented cruiser bikes in New Orleans last December to ride through the park, I have been dying to get my own bike. I had a bike growing up but was never very athletic or cared much about it. 


I found these Huffy cruisers earlier in the year but cut to COVID and suddenly you couldn't find a bike anywhere or if you did, the cost was WAY up and not worth it. Still, I kept a couple different models in my favorites and kept an eye on them.
