Allison, My Aim is True (Heart of Haute)

I have been feeling less and less inclined to reach for the big fluffy petticoats these days. I don't know if my style is simply evolving away from them or I am just in an anti-petticoat phase, but I have been looking for more lovelies that have a less full skirt and can accommodate one of my less crazy petticoats (such as my Zooey Malco Modes, which is not as voluminous as the Samantha) or is shorter in length and doesn't need a petticoat at all.

The BIG Celebration: A Night at the Races

As some of you may know, I have been a Big Sister with Big Brother Big Sister (BBBS) for the last year. It has been a wonderful opportunity to mentor my Little every week (in reality, we get to hang out for an hour, chat, and do fun stuff like make slime or paint/draw) and see her grow and develop.

This past weekend, BBBS held their annual BIG Celebration fundraiser and all their Bigs (mentors) were invited! I never turn down an invitation to get dressed up so I immediately grabbed tickets for Cody and me and planned our outfits.

Pick Up Sticks (Modern Millie's)

Come hither, peanuts, and tell me if you've ever worn or seen Teeberry & Weave before! I hadn't until my favorite retro shop, Modern Millie's, shared this beauty on their social media a few weeks back and I fell in love.

Here's where I fell even MORE in love. Instead of just adding it to my my Love List and waiting for the day it'd go on sale so I could snag it (goal of 2019 and all that jazz), I got to buy it just a mere few days after discovering it!

Donut Stop Me Now (Rocco's Grand Opening)

Ya'll know by now what my true love is - I mean, I hold one IN MY HAND IN MY LOGO FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

For those STILL dumbfounded, I'll fill you in. I love me a good donut (sorry, Cody). And whether you spell it donut or doughnut, it doesn't matter as long as you're handing me a perfect little round cake smothered with yummy things.

What's Sara Reading? Matchmaking for Beginners

Full disclosure, I am STILL reading "Matchmaking for Beginners" by Maddie Dawson, but considering this series is called What's Sara READING and not What Has Sara READ, I think I can get away with it this time.

I am a little more than halfway through with a lot to discover but I love it so far. It's got a little bit of magic to it but not in a "ohhh I'm reading a fantasy novel" way at all. Dawson has managed to weave it into the story without it being overly cliche or cheesy.

In the Kitchen Redux + Body Positivity (Bernie Dexter)

This post will be a bit different. Sure, I am sharing a Bernie Dexter dress that I recently scored at discount on the Bernie Dexter Collective on Facebook, but I wanted to share it to discuss something I feel very strongly about - body positivity.

What does this precious dress have to do with body positivity (BOPO)? Well, some may recognize it and may be wondering "don't you have this dress already, Sara? Haven't we seen this before many times?"

Cranberry Orange Muffins (Vegan)

Growing up, I used to LOVE cranberry orange muffins. I loved the tart and sweet combo and the fruitiness of them. Whenever we'd get muffins from Dunkin Donuts or as a treat when we'd go food shopping, I always opted for a cranberry orange muffin over the more popular chocolate chip or blueberry.
