Hello there! This is actually my 700th blog post! Hard to believe. I've been blogging for so long now, that it's just become so ingrained in my weekly routine. Even though I don't have many readers or commenters, I really am not bothered my that. In fact, I get so less comments now than I did a year or two ago, but that's fine with me. I write my blog for me, mainly. I need to have a creative outlet in my life, and this one works for me. I have an English degree, and love to read and write, but my job is all about numbers. So, I don't get a creative outlet at work, except on the occassion that I am asked to read and edit letters, emails, etc. 
Last night Bob and I went out for drinks, and met up with my friend and his brother. We don't go out much for drinks (although Bob and I did go to a pub last weekend, by ourselves). Tonight we'll be going to my parents' house for dinner, along with my grandparents and aunt & uncle. I actually haven't seen my mom in a month, which is a long time for us. There's just less going on in the winter. 
In a month or so I'll be seeing her a lot more; we're going to PA to go shopping March 3, March 17 we are going to an antique show, March 24 is my sister's bridal shower, April 1 is Easter, and then April 7 or 8 we are going antiquing in Adamstown. I have lots of plans in March & April! I'm also going to my sister's bachelorette party in Charleston, SC, and will be there from April 12-15. 
In the pictures below I'm wearing my much worn Bernie Dexter Kelly dress in a U.S. states print. I got this about a year and a half ago, and I should've gotten a size down, but I just belt it tightly. I absolutely adore this print! For a traveler like me, it's perfect. I like to wear it on planes, too, and it's gotten noticed by the airline staff. These BAIT Footwear Heather shoes are new, and I love pairing a new pair of shoes with a much worn dress; I like have options to switch up my jewelry and shoes with a dress. 
Bernie Dexter hasn't been releasing many new Kellys at all lately, which is great for my wallet! I definitely have more Kellys in my closet than any other of her styles. I can't recommend them enough; they're super comfortable and easy to wear.

~Bye bye for now!


  1. Your blog is one of my favourites! I'm glad you keep blogging. One of the most genuine blogs out there!

  2. I'm glad she slowed down on the Kellys too - for my wallet's sake but also because I'd love to try the Drive In style. I hope she releases more of those like she did for the Kelly last spring so I can get something in that style. I love how the Nicole fits so the Drive in looks close just with short sleeves!

  3. Wow!! Congrats on your 700th post! :)
    Another gorgeous Bernie dress you're wearing here. xo
