I always love my dresses from Bailey Blue Clothing, butttt I think this may be my favorite yet! The flowy skirt is so pretty and girly and the fit is so good! I generally love anything with bell sleeves. I pretty much fell in love with it before I knew how great the fit would be. The most beautiful detail is the print! I’ve been loving floral’s for every season. Pairing this dress with OTK boots is a great way to wear a dress in cooler weather. In spring I can switch it up and wear it with heels or wedges.

My friend Brandy from Basically Brandy Photography took these photos with my camera, she’s an amazing photographer! These pictures do not do her work justice since I edited them and they were taken with my camera. She specializes in wedding photography, but she’s good at everything! Definitely check her out!

I’m going to the coast this weekend with friends! I’m so excited because my best friend and I rarely get to do anything outside of work and to spend the night away from kids is so exciting for us!

I just finished reading The Winter people by Jennifer Mcmahon. Oh my gosh guys, it was such a great book! I highly recommend it, especially if you like suspenseful and eerie. Before that I read A Long Fatal Chase by Louisa May Alcott. I am a HUGE fan of Louisa and Little Women is one of my favorite books of all time so I had no doubt this book would be great. I have no idea why this book isn’t more popular! I loved it till the very end!

So ready for Spring!  Hope you all have a great week!

I don’t wear a lot of bright pinks, but I could wear this blush/dusty pink everyday! I love the sleeves on this blush floral dress! They gather at the elbow and at the wrist, but they are wide around the forearm and bicep area. The double ruffle hem is so feminine and cute too! These leather gray OTK boots were an Nsale purchase and I’m obsessed with them! They aren’t tight around the leg, but they aren’t too loose either.

Is everyone excited for Halloween?! I’m kinda disappointed in myself because I’ve only watched Hocus Pocus once, it’s my favorite Halloween movie so I try to watch it at least ten times in the month of October. We went to Detering Orchards (local farm here in Oregon) last week to pick a pumpkin. This was the first year Porter could really get excited about picking a pumpkin, so it was so much fun!

Last month my friend started a book club, and our first book was All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, it was so good! This month we are reading, In The Unlikely Event by Judy Blume. Reading has been my favorite hobby for as long as I can remember. Judy Blume was one of my favorite authors as a child, I literally read every book she wrote.  I’m really excited to read her new book!

Would love to hear about the books you love in the comments section!

I know I am way late, but how was everyone’s Easter?! It was so much fun to watch Porter hunt for eggs! The weather wasn’t the best so we did an indoor hunt! Does anyone have any special Easter traditions? My dad, brother, and his girlfriend came over for coffee and breakfast and John’s parents made us a great dinner!

When I saw this at Old Navy I knew it would be my Easter dress! I liked the print and shape and it’s something I will get a lot of use out of this Spring and Summer! They have a bunch of really cute prints still available online. I bought this Blank NYC jacket a couple of years ago, and it’s still one of my favorites! I love the color and zipper details, it goes with so much. As you may have seen I have been wearing these gorgeous heels a ton lately! I think they are all sold out except in size 10, but there are some great similar ones that I will link below!

It’s finally been warm enough to plant flowers! Last weekend we bought hydrangeas (my fav) to plant in the front yard, and a hanging basket for the porch. Along with the gorgeous spring weather we’ve been having, comes the dreaded allergies! Mine haven’t been too bad, but I know it’s coming!

Happy sneezes and watery eyes to you all! 🙂

RED ORANGE FLORAL DRESS

I love this red orange floral dress! Red has never been a color I have really liked or worn, but this dress has a lot of orange in it so it was a perfect color to try without diving headfirst into something that was solid red! I love neutral accessories almost always, but I really love them with this shade of color!  It ties everything together nicely.

I wore this outfit to our appointment with the owner of Deep Woods Events, our wedding venue. Everything went great! There were so many questions she had that we hadn’t even thought about! Where to have certain tables, if we want flowers here or there, so many tiny details we were so unsure about. Luckily John and I aren’t picky and simple people so we don’t stress about most of the decisions we have to make.

My mom is here visiting and it’s been so nice to have help with everything! It’s nice to not feel so alone and have family here for Porter and I to go do things with!

Any big plans for the weekend?  Let me know in the comments section!
