    That 70’s Feeling

    You might have noticed that lately I’ve been really feeling the 70’s. So when Karina Dresses reached out to have me shoot some photos of the Megan Jelly Bean Dress for their fall 2020 collection, my brain went straight to… well, making it 70’s retro! I think this print is pretty timeless; it can read modern or vintage depending on the styling. It’s no secret that I really love Karina Dresses. I have worked with them several times, and have also bought myself a few prints I adored. They really are THE perfect go-to daily dress for a busy mom, a breastfeeding mom, a pregnant mom… basically, my top recommendation…

    Hello, Fall

    A week or so ago, I started getting items in the mail to do a little try-on-haul for a brand called Belle Poque. I have actually bought a few of their dresses over the years and I’ve always loved the brand, so when they reached out to me to collaborate on a haul video I was thrilled. In that haul was this cardigan. And as soon as I opened it, I knew it would be the PERFECT match for my Emily and Fin rainbow plaid skirt. I’ve actually already worn this outfit twice in the week that I’ve had the cardigan. I love it that much! And, it was nice…

    Recreating Vintage Outfits on a Vintage Plus Size Body

    This past weekend I decided to try recreating some vintage outfits I have had pinned to my Pinterest board for a few years now. This one, with the sweater and plaid skirt, was definitely my favorite. I have an affinity for plaid, and it just reminds me of everything fall and bookish. I will definitely be recreating this outfit in many different iterations. I have an entire bin full of plaid skirts so it may just become my fall uniform! Be sure to watch the video if you want to see all five outfits!

    1970’s Disco Disney Princess

    Yesterday, I told myself I was going to have a chill day. I wasn’t going to put on makeup, I wasn’t going to do my hair, I wasn’t going to wear anything but yoga pants. Just relax, hang out, and maybe get some housework done for once. But my brain had other ideas. My brain said “yes but you have THAT dress and THIS wig, and you need to be a 1970’s Disney Disco Princess.” So here we are. Would I wear this outfit practically? No. Mainly because I’m breastfeeding and I don’t think I can wear this and breastfeed. But sometimes, it’s fun to just dress up and play.…

    Lavender Hair and Writing Again

    I don’t update this blog as much as I want to, but I think the reason is that I’ve been trying to make it something that isn’t very ME. I’ve been obsessing over SEO and making everything perfect when really… this blog started as a way for me to process my thoughts. I think after ten years I’m going back to that. Just processing my thoughts and writing about life. No fancy fashion jargon (although I will still share photos because… I love doing that), no worrying about SEO being great. Just me. I started writing again and it’s made me realize I have  SO many things going on. These…
