April Showers... (Collectif x Modern Millie's)

Like many Collectif pieces, I spotted this Demira dress and fell madly in love with it. I bookmarked it and waited because when it comes to Collectif, I try so badly to wait until either the end of summer or end of winter. Why? Because they always have their 50% off everything sale at the end of those seasons and even though it's risky, I try to only buy during their sales so I can get more for my money.

It's hard when things I adore are sold out by then (it happens from time to time) but it usually works out to my advantage and I walk away with some great scores and a restock of my wardrobe for the following season.

Coming Up Roses (Lindy Bop)

Despite the current mania that is the world (let's not even get me started on that), I am feeling the spring fever and was delighted when Lindy Bop reached out about collaborating for the upcoming season again. Have you seen some of the new pretties on their site recently? It was SO hard to choose one thing to feature today.

Ultimately, I chose this Shannon Rose Plaid Check Midi Dress for a few reasons. For one thing, I am ALWAYS down to add another long sleeve dress to my wardrobe to keep me going on cooler days. Bonus points if the sleeves are comfortable and the dress isn't restrictive.

Lucky Charms (Eva Rose)

When I wore this outfit to work, so many people started asking me when it became Christmas again, which was so funny to me since I felt like I was giving off St. Patrick's Day vibes more than Santa Claus.

I have absolutely zero Irish genetics in my body but hey, why not share a St. Paddy's outfit to get ready for the big day for those who follow me that ARE? Happy St. Patrick's Day season, my peanuts!

Happy Galentine's Day (Collectif)

Happy Galentine's Day, my little peanuts! I am honoring Galentine's instead of Valentine's today because I want to have some girl talk. There is something I've been dying to share for ages now but had no idea where to share it. I know there are tons of others who would benefit from it though and feel the need to share my experience and decided Galentine's Day was the right time to do it. I wanna talk periods.

UR Sweet: Red Velvet Blossom Cookies

I've had this blog for 6 years now (WTF HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?) and I think I've shared Valentine's Day treats nearly every single year! I'm impressed with myself! Knowing that I feel like I can't let anyone down (the whopping 20 of you that even read my recipe posts, ha!).

This year, I went for simplicity. I knew I liked the idea of a festive cookie or something pretty simple and then I saw this twist on the classic peanut butter blossom cookie concept and my mind was blown. OF COURSE! Why NOT make the blossom cookie with other flavors?

Where the Buffalo Roam... (Collectif)

You know, sometimes I wonder if my blog titles confuse the heck out of people. They don't always make sense. I usually sit here, think of either the name of the dress I'm wearing (or the brand name of the dress I'm wearing) or what is on the print or fabric and whatever comes to mind first becomes the title. In this case, well, this dress is made with a white buffalo plaid fabric, so I started singing "Home on the Range."

Barking Up the Wrong Tree (Palava)

Do you have a brand/designer that you always admire - but from afar only? Palava is mine. I loved them for ages - through their multiple name changes (I got a skirt from them when they were called Poppy!) and all their new designs.
