Disconnected (Getaway House Boston)


Since March, Cody has been in boot camp to prepare to test for his black belt in Krav Maga. That meant that on top of going to class 2-3 times a week, he also went to a 3 hour boot camp every Friday night, coming home exhausted and drenched in sweat. He had 2 pre-tests this spring and then on June 1, he had his final official black belt test, which lasted over 4 hours and was the most physically and challenging afternoon he has ever conquered. It was challenging to watch as well! Especially the final hour when I knew he was having trouble with his muscles cramping up on him.

Spoonful of Sugar (Anthropologie)


Full disclosure: these photos are not recent! But it seems as though my spending ban has caught up to me and well, I just don't have anything left in queue to share! If all goes well, Cody and I close on our new house at the end of this month so as you can imagine, we're trying not to touch our wallets if we can avoid it for the next few weeks!

The Shift of Summer (My Bubbie's Shift Dress)


Growing up, I always wanted my parents' and grandparents' clothes. The problem was no one ever kept anything! I had a handful of some old band t-shirts from my dad's teenage years but my mother kept nearly nothing from her teenage years.


It is because of this that I struggle to get rid of clothes myself - what if my future daughter wants them? Well, let's hope she wants clothes styled like the 50s and 60s and not the 2010s because I don't dress to the time at all!

In My Happy Place (Happy Place Popup in Boston)


Now that it's getting warmer (though it is doing so very, very, VERY slowly), I can't wait to start taking more day trips and adventures with Cody and our friends. As you may recall from previous posts, we are always down to check out something funky with my girl, Jen, and her husband, Dave.


When I heard that Happy Place was coming to Boston this month, I immediately texted them to see if they'd want to check it out with me. If you've never heard of Happy Place, here's some more information on the fun pop up experience, according to their website.

What's Sara Reading? Forget About It


What are friends for if not buying dresses from each other?


When my boo, Anna, recently decided to sell some of her previously loved Bernie Dexter dresses, I knew she'd probably be getting rid of at least one or two that I am missing from my collection. Lo and behold, she shared her green gingham Kelly dress as one getting the boot and I decided to take it off her hands.

Prom Season (Styling My Prom Dress from 2005)


2005 feels genuinely like a lifetime ago. Does 14 years count as a lifetime? It sure feels like it does! And in honor of it being so long ago and in honor of Prom Season 2019, I decided to pull on the ol' prom dress and style it for the blog!

Autumn Spice & Everything Nice (Tatyana)


Snagging a dress during a sale is just about the most satisfying thing a gal can do - at least, in my book it is! As you may recall, I recently snagged a couple things from Modern Millie's during their Spring Shopping party and took advantage of their fun 20% coupon code.


Modern Millie already had this adorable Tatyana number for a steal of a price ($68) but with 20% off? DROOL WORTHY!
