    Where to Find Breastfeeding-Friendly Dresses || feat Lindy Bop

    breastfeeding friendly retro dress I am so excited to finally share these photos and this lovely woodland fairy-esque breastfeeding friendly dress from Lindy Bop! About a month ago, Lindy Bop got in touch with me to collaborate on a new venture they’ve launched: the Lindy Bop blog! In their post and interview, they wanted to feature a few mama bloggers who specifically could provide insight into dresses that work well for breastfeeding. They have also added a new category on their site: nursing dresses. Of course, having loved Lindy Bop forever and also having three kids whom I have breastfed, I was very excited to collaborate and test out some…

    Snow White, Vampyre || feat Lady V London

    Happy Halloween!!! For my last little twisted fairytale I knew immediately that I wanted to do some sort of Vampire-related look. And who is paler than all the rest but Snow White? I’ve always thought that Snow White would make a great vampire with her lips red as blood and her skin pale as snow, not to mention the hair dark as night, but I never quite knew how I wanted to do it until this gorgeous lace-print dress from Lady V London came into my life and right then, I knew! Nothing is more classic and creepy than red, black, and white together! Of course, once I was done…

    Beauty and the Beast || Feat. Lady V London

    Welcome to the second installment of twisted fairytales! Today, as you can see by the title, I’m sharing my twisted Beauty and the Beast. Which, more accurately, would be… Beauty (killed the) Beast. I Beauty and the Beast in mind almost immediately when I tried on this gorgeous vintage red rose print Eva dress; what is really more iconic to that fairytale, after all, than the rose? But it wasn’t until I remembered this massive vintage fur coat I rescued from Goodwill that I decided on the twist to give Beauty. I feel as though this concept is a little more apparent once you see all three of the twisted…

    Red Riding Hood || Feat Lady V London

    Happy spooky week! I am getting started on my spooky posts a bit late this year, but as soon as I saw this gingham Lady V London dress, I knew it had to be the base for a Red Riding Hood costume! I am excited to be collaborating with them this week on a few different looks– all of which I decided to base around some of my favorite fairytales. I can’t wait to share the rest! But for today, we have Red Riding Hood. I paired the dress with a cape that I made a few years ago for one of my husband’s short films, and let me tell…

    Autumn Bounty || feat Lindy Bop

    The turning of autumn for me is marked by the ripeness of its bounty: the apples and the pumpkins and the grapes that offer themselves up in generous amounts. We visit my parents’ farm often in this season to pick apples, which then get made into applesauce, apple butter, and apple pies. This year has been their most fruitful (pun intended!) and I hope to try many recipes featuring apples. I picked nearly 50 pounds of apples the other day, and I only hope my family doesn’t get sick of apples before we finish them off! Pumpkins, too, are prevalent of course, it being autumn and pumpkins being the feature…
