BBQ Skirt

Hello there! I'm so happy that this is the last day of February! I really can't stand January or February, because of the weather. Spring is 20 days away, and I am so excited. Winter is basically the bane of my existence, and I've always felt that way. Also, one month from tomorrow Bob and I are Las Vegas bound! Since we're in the final stretch now, it's going to be really hard to wait. It's going to be an interesting feeling to be somewhere (Viva Las Vegas) where I don't stick out like a sore thumb because of my style, but I'll actually blend in!
Today Bob and I are going out to eat at a restaurant in Pennsylvania, an hour away. We're going to a store in the same town too. It's the oldest book store in the U.S., and they always have really cute seasonal decorations. Hopefully they will have some Easter ones out. 
In the pictures below I'm wearing my new Bernie Dexter skirt. I really adore the print on the skirt! It is so perfect for BBQs, picnics, and summertime in general. But, that doesn't mean I won't wear it in other seasons too, ha. I'm also wearing one of my new Erstwilder brooches. I received three from Australia this week, from Estwilder's new American Diner collection. They are right up my alley!

Pastel Houses

Hello there! Tonight I'm meeting up with my good friend for a drink in town. Saturday Bob and I are going out to eat for an early dinner and drinks at a restaurant we both love, in Pennsylvania. We go there about once every two or three months. I always get the Bavarian pretzels with beer cheese soup dip. It's one of my favourite meals, ever.
In the pictures below I'm wearing a dress I got from Modcloth a couple of years ago. I wore it for Easter that year; I think the colours are perfect for Easter. I don't have too much pastel clothing, but I do love this dress. My new lavendar Iones match quite perfectly with the purple in the dress. When I first ordered them, I wasn't sure how much I had in my wardrobe that would match them well, but I've been finding a decent amount that matches them, luckily.

Mellow Yellow

Hello there! Not too much going on today, I'm going to work out, read, and relax. I listed a couple more items on eBay (bristolp15 is my eBay shop), and I'm ordering more wedding pictures! I ordered a wedding photo albulm yesterday, so I'm excited to put the pictures in it. I already have a lot of pictures framed in our apartment. 
I'm also going to watch the Oscars pre-show tonight, and probably most of the Oscars themselves. Bob is out plowing. He woke up at 6 a.m. to go out, and probably won't be back until the early afternoon. 
In the pictures below I'm wearing a Trashy Diva Varga dress. I also have it in red. I bought them both when Bob and I were in New Orleans last Summer for our honeymoon. I don't often wear paler shades of colour, like the shade of this dress, but it can be pretty difficult to find brighter yellow dresses in the style I like.

Poppy Fields


Hello there! Happy weekend! We are going to get hit with another snow storm today/freezing rain & ice. UGH! Bob and his dad are going to have to salt & plow, so his family won't be coming over for dinner tonight like we had planned. I'll just be doing my normal Saturday routine of cleaning, laundry & working out. Definitely won't be going anywhere tonight, due to the weather.

In the pictures below I'm wearing my new Hell Bunny poppy dress, from the Spring 2015 line. I hardly have any florals in my wardrobe, in fact this is only my third floral piece. I really love the print, the colours, and the shape of the dress. I didn't have any off-shoulder dresses before this one. I can wear it with a cropped cardigan to work. Maybe if I keep wearing my Spring-y looking outfits (especially the florals!) it will usher in the season?! *Wishful thinking!* 
In the first picture below is a new Trashy Diva dress that someone took a picture of in a window display. I need this dress! I don't own any TD dresses in the Honey style. I really like how the top part of the dress is solid red, and I love all the colours in the dress! I don't own any Asian prints, and I think this one is lovely. I also love that shade of blue. I hope it hits the website soon.
It's been so long that we have been stuck in this artic/polar freeze, that it's so hard to remember what it felt like to NOT be constantly freezing, even with multiple layers. It's 6 degrees outside, and that's not factoing in the windchill. I've always hated Winter, but these past two Winters have been extreme (record setting) in cold and snow and ice, and it's really giving me the itch to move south. Now, if only I could convince my husband! (We've been married eight months today, by the way!)

Cherry Jubilee!

Hello there! We are still in the grips of a deep freeze here. I've had about as much as I can take of this. Spring is a month away, but right now I'd settle for temperatures that are more than twenty-five degrees! I wouldn't be happy with that ha, but it'd be better than what we have now. 
Tomorrow I'm going to Panera for dinner with my good friend. We haven't gone there in about a month, so I'm pretty excited to be going! I always get broccoli cheddar soup with bread. Saturday night Bob's family is coming over for dinner, and Bob's making us quesadillas. I haven't had them in awhile, so I'm really looking forward to it. He makes them better ones than I've had anywhere else, too.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my newest Hell Bunny skirt! I ordered it from a website in England, and very eargely waited its arrival. It came yesterday, and I immediately put it on. The colours are nice and bright, and I just adore it. I'm usually pretty picky when it comes to cherry prints, but I really like how this is different than most cherry prints, because of the gingham background and also the size of the cherries; they're quite large. I'm really loving the Spring 2015 Hell Bunny line. Not all of it is available yet, but I've seen a lot of previews online. This is my second piece, and I have a dress on the way.

Can I Take Your Order?

Hello there! We got more snow yesterday/last night, so Bob is out plowing now. We have been getting weekend freezing rain/snow for probably about five weekends in a row now. I'm going to work out, read, and watch TV today, and then Bob and I are meeting my family for dinner at a restaurant for my grandfather's birthday.
In the pictures below I'm wearing another Modcloth Bea & Dot brand dress. Two posts ago I featured pictures of my Modcloth Bea & Dot pennants dress. This dress is tight in the bust, and you can see the buttons are gaping somewhat, but it wasn't so bad that I wanted to return/exchange it. I can't wait to receive my brooches from the ErstWilder diner line; they're going to match this dress so perfectly!! There's a Bea & Dot dress I'm looking at on eBay, and it's for a good price. I may have to snag it! It's the same size as this dress, and also has buttons and a collar, so I'm sure there will be gaping as well, but hopefully it won't be any tighter in the bust than this one.

Steady Space

Hello there! I'm so glad the weekend is here. It's supposed to snow today, which is really annoying, because yet again Bob will have to go out and salt/plow, probably on Sunday morning. Today I'll be cleaning, doing laundry, running a couple errands, and working out. Bob's going to cook my favourite dinner tonight, tomato tart. (It's very similar to pizza.) We're going out to dinner tomorrow night with my family for my grandfather's 75th birthday. I didn't want to go out out to eat two nights in a row, and also Valentine's Day is so crazy busy at restaurants, it's just not much fun to go out to eat when it's like that. He surprised me with a Bath & Body Works gift card, which is great because I had just run out of my B&BW lotion. They have the best lotion. 
I'm SO glad February is half over. I just do not like January or February. I hate how fast time flies, except when it comes to January and February. I always want them to be over right away. They are just so miserable, weather wise. Also, now that we are half way through February, it's a month and a half until we got to Las Vegas!! I've of course been thinking of outfits to bring already. It's going to be such a neat experience to go to Viva Las Vegas, and see thousands of girls with similar style to me. No one around where I live dresses anything like me.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my Steady Clothing space print skirt. This is the only item I have of this brand, and I really love it. I think the print is super cute and kitschy.

Rainbow Pennants

Hello there! Tonight I'm not doing too much, just staying in with Bob. Friday night I'll be going to a friend's house, and Sunday my family is going to a restaurant for my grandfather's birthday. Other than that, I don't really have upcoming plans.
In the pictures below I'm wearing a Modcloth Bea & Dot dress. As soon as I saw this dress last year, I snatched it up. They sold out right away, and never re-stocked it, so it's great that I did get it right away. I love how colourful it is, and I think the pennant print is quite cute and cheerful. It's also work appropriate, even without a cardigan, which is another bonus. I hope Modcloth will be coming out with more fun, bright prints like this soon. They haven't had much like this since last summer.

Harlequin & Ice Cream

Hello there! Bob and I are having a quiet day in today. I'm going to work out, and just read and watch TV. I'm excited for "Downton Abbey" tonight! And "Better Call Saul" premieres tonight, as well. Can't wait for that, too. It's the "Breaking Bad" spin-off. I'm sure it won't be as good as "Breaking Bad", but hopefully it's decent.
In the pictures below I'm wearing one of my Pin Up Girl Clothing harlequin dresses. I have two, and I like my other one (which has brighter colours) better than this one. But, I do still really like this one, and just am obsessed with harlequin prints in general. I got this Betsey Johnson ice cream clutch about a year ago, and I think it is just so darn cute! It's the only Betsey Johnson item I've ever owned, but, it is of course right up my alley. I was excited to discover my lobster necklace matches perfectly with this dress! Sice the lobsters are a dark red, close to a burgundy shade, they don't match with a lot of my dresses which are more bright red.
