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!

Tally, Ho! (LindyBop)


April showers are wrapping up next week, which means it's time for May flowers and hopefully some beautiful spring weather!


When it comes to pretty spring dresses, I knew I could rely on Lindy Bop to brighten up my wardrobe for warmer weather. So when the opportunity arose for a spring themed collaboration, I jumped at the chance to add this lovely Tally Day dress in the blue daisy print.

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.
