    Wishing for Fall in Collectif’s Apple Print

    I took these photos before it got cooler, just a short few weeks ago. Our fields have turned to gold and brown as the weather becomes more and more dry, and it gives off the perfect feeling of autumn. I bought this collectif Apple print dress quite a while ago, but this is the first time I’m wearing it! It’s the perfect autumnal dress, especially for me. We have so many apple trees and I cannot wait to pick them and make all sorts of yummy autumn goodness. Apple pies, apple butter, applesauce, apple cider, even apple cider vinegar – the list is endless! Turnovers and apple pancakes and apple…

    Life’s short, wear fun clothes || Joanie Clothing

    This Joanie Clothing rainbow dress came to me in a roundabout way. I am part of a buy/sell/trade group on Facebook, and commented on it a second too late after someone else had claimed it in a clothing sale thread. Luckily that person happened to be a friend of mine. When it didn’t work out for her she reached out to me and I was able to purchase it from her. And oh BOY am I so happy it worked out! I’ve never bought from Joanie Clothing before but for this first-time wear, I have to say I am in love! Currently I’m browsing their website and drooling over all…

    1950s Housewife Daily Routine – with Kids

    For the last four years I have been searching and working to create a realistic 1950s Housewife Routine. Most of the videos and blog posts I see come from women who have no kids, and as y’all know I have four, so I often wondered what it would be like to run through a routine WITH kids. I also noticed a lot of people who do these routines tend to focus on being super glamorous and doing all the beauty things. What, then, would a real 1950s Housewife Routine be like? Would the 1950s woman really spend an hour on her hair and wear a full face of makeup? Would…

    Cottagecore Belle

    Lately I have been really into Cottagecore. Some people love it, some people hate it, some people don’t really even know what it is. And to be honest, I ride around the edges of cottagecore; I’m not 100% into the super girly side, nor the almost-grandma side. I’m somewhere between cottagecore and vintage garden girl, which is an aesthetic that makes me supremely happy. I found this dress on Amazon, and immediately knew I had to do a Cottagecore Belle look. After my Beauty and the Beast maternity shoot last year, I’ve been wanting to do a pared-down take on the princesses. Someone suggested I should do a “happily ever…

    Miss Candyfloss Danielle-Rose Dress & Matching Masks to Outfits

    There has never been a Miss Candyfloss Dress I didn’t love. A few weeks ago, I worked up the courage to finally email Miss Candyfloss to ask if they’d consider collaborating with me. They have been one of my favorite brands for years now. So when they responded yes, I was over the moon! If you aren’t aware, Miss Candyfloss is a Swedish brand focused on 1940s and 1950s fashion with a modern twist. They strive to create classic, durable garments that can be passed from mother to daughter and they have a focus on sustainability. Every dress I’ve owned from them has been perfect.
