Flipping Over Flipsville Originals!

I have been so psyched to share this outfit with my blogger pals. Amanda from Welcome to Flipsville has started her own clothing line and online shop!

This was so exciting for me since I always admired her sewing skills whenever she posted her "His & Her" blog posts featuring her hubby, Mamoru, and herself in matching outfits - made by her! This girl's got skills, I tell you!

Oreo Cupcakes with Easy Cookies & Cream Frosting

Cody's grandparents recently moved back east after spending a good chunk of their lives in Washington state. It's been fantastic having them back in Massachusetts - we've gotten to see them more often! It also makes it challenging when it comes to holidays - I've had to swap between my family and Cody's family for each holiday much more than normal.

The BBRBF Book Club: The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

If you're thinking "what the heck is a BBRBF Book Club?" don't worry. I'll break it down for you.

Last month, Kristina from Eccentric Owl and I decided to start our very own virtual book club and it's been dubbed the Best Book Reading Blogger Friend Book Club due to us bonding over loving books and being total book nerd besties. You can read more here. So we're lame but we're awesomely lame. And we're not afraid of that!

In the Kitchen Bernie Dexter Dress & Dorothy Designs Flower Brooches

I, along with many of my fellow retro loving gal pals, have been flipping out over the new Bernie Dexter dresses. She released a few new styles and a handful of adorable new prints and I've been drooling - from afar, that is!

Happy St. Patrick's Day: Lady V London's Green Poppy Dress

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I am not Irish at all (nowhere close - unless you consider the fact that the Jews were the ones who provided the Irish with the corned beef to go with their cabbage and potatoes back in the day...) but when I got this dress in the mail from Lady V London a couple months back during one of their sales, it reminded me of St. Paddy's and I knew I had to share to celebrate!

Ice Cream, You Scream... (Bernie Dexter Sundae Dress)

I know I am very late to the sundae dress club but I only just recently snagged the Bernie that Got Away and had to include it on the bog. How could I not?

Originally, I lusted after the Sundae Rose dress that has this print in the skirt with red fabric on the top. I could never find it in my size so I fixed that hole in my life by buying the same fabric as a handmade skirt, which I often pair with a red top to elude to that Bernie I never could get.

What's Sara Reading? March Edition

Happy March, everyone! Are you freaking out over how fast March came 'round? What the what? I feel like I say that every time a new month starts, but I digress...

This month, my reading roundup is going live earlier than usual because I am changing things up a bit - OK a lot. I've been debating whether or not I even wanted to keep posting about what I am reading altogether but then I realized that it's just HOW I shared my reading adventures that sort of fell flat for me. This is boring!!!

So consider this my last "What's Sara Reading?" edition that consists of just snapshots of each book followed by a blurb. It's time to evolve this puppy into something better. Starting this month, I will be posting one book at a time, perhaps just a few and not every single read, and pair it with an outfit inspired by the tale or the cover design, much like Kristina has been kicking butt doing over at Eccentric Owl. Imitation is the best form of flattery and all that junk, right?

Kristina and I are also cooking up some joint reading projects so stay tuned for that! Think of it as a virtual book club - only made better with STYLE! To start, we're both reading The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. Join us if you're interested and let us know if you put a review on your blog!

Alaina Rose, 12 Weeks Old

A few weeks back, I had the pleasure to meet baby Alaina on the day she turned 12 weeks old. Alaina is the newest addition to my good friend, Jess's, family. I've known Jess since high school and have been very involved in documenting her growing family.

Fun fact - her wedding back in 2007 was my first wedding I ever photographed and I did it with a film camera!
