NYC!

I am SOOO SO sorry for the lack of posts lately! I just got off of spring break and I know it was supposed to be a time to relax, but my break was super busy. My mom and I went to NYC for a few days to revisit colleges so that I could make my final decision on where to go. But that doesn’t mean I couldn’t have a little fun on the trip too (: I finally got to see my old pal Nick in his broadway show, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. I know I’m a bit biased, but it was honestly the best show I’ve ever seen! It was hilarious. The set was brilliant and so different from the norm. The costumes were ADORABLE!!! I wish I owned every single vintage-inspired dress on stage. Beautiful. Oh and the music! I need to buy the soundtrack… I’m pretty sure I’ll be listening to it all day tomorrow. Although Nick did an amazing job (I feel like a proud momma!!!), the standout for me was Michael Urie from Ugly Betty. His character was insane. I loved it. You need to go see this show, right now. Right. Now. Here are some pics from the day, more to come from my trip in upcoming posts (:

P.S. Everything I’m wearing is vintage!! Yay!

puppy love

Top: American Eagle / Skirt: Vintage / Shoes: Urban Outfitters / Necklace: $1 at the flea market! / Ring: either from my brother or my aunt, but I’ve had it for years

All three dogs happened to be on the porch as I was taking pictures, so I tried to get a family photo… yeah, didn’t quite work out. But the good news is, I’m officially adopting my foster dog Lucy!!! Yayyy!

coral & pearls

Oh how in love I am with this dress. I found it at a vintage dress sale for $10 and it was worth every penny! I can’t wait to find somewhere to wear this to. The beading is so intricate and beautiful and gahhh! I’m totally in love! Hahaha.

last friday night

Dress and cardigan: H&M / Necklace: vintage / Backpack: local flea market / Shoes: Urban Outfitters

Last Friday night I didn’t dance on tabletops or any of those things in the Katy Perry song, but I did have a lot of fun! First, Bethany and I hit up the flea market with Shawntell and Peyton, then we dined at our favorite Mexican restaurant in el mundo, El Jinete. After that, I supported Bethany, Madeline, and Shawntell in the county variety show. They did wonderfully! (: And FINALLY, I got to see the Hunger Games! It was a great movie, although as usual, I liked the books better. I’m glad the movie followed the book really well though! Whether or not you’ve read the books, you really should see this movie. It is soooo gooooood! It made me wanna go run in the woods and try not to get killed, haha. All in all, pretty good night.

I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!

I still can’t believe I found this beauty at a thrift store for $5. And all I had to do to alter it was take out the shoulder pads (:

our animal shelter!

All three of us volunteer at our local animal shelter and we care about the animals there so very much! Some very exciting things are going on at the shelter right now. They’re in the process of getting  a brand new building, and to help raise funds for that they’re opening up a thrift store downtown! My two favorite things… together! I seriously could not believe the wonderful news. I know where I’ll be thrifting this summer (;

Anyway, the shelter just launched its new website, and the point of this post was to share the site with you all! Take a peek and just maybe you’ll find a special furry friend, or at least be inspired to visit your own local shelter.

Even if you can’t adopt a little doggy or kitty, there are still plenty of ways to help!

  • Collect old or unwanted blankets and towels for donation
  • Volunteer to do miscellaneous shelter jobs, like laundry, mopping, or tidying up
  • Foster a cat or dog until they find their forever home! My foster dog Lucy is a sweetheart
  • Run a pet food drive for your shelter
  • Socialize cats and/or walk dogs to help them become more adoptable, or to just make their day!

And to end this post, here’s a picture of my rescue dog Mandy. She’s just a little crazy…

sweet springtime!

It’s been 80 degrees here all week and I’m loving it! It’s given me a chance to wear some of my favorite dresses, like this one. It’s weird to think that it’s really only the first day of spring… what’s up with that, Mother Nature?

Dress and cardigan: H&M / Shoes: Urban Outfitters / Necklace: Forever 21

I love pairing black & white with a bright, bold color. It’s like my favorite thing, ever! You can almost never go wrong with it because it’s so simple. Hope you enjoy this look (: xo, Sara

lace & bows

Our friend Shawntell’s outfit was so cute today that we just had to blog about it. She’s our first guest outfit post!

Shirt: Thrifted / Skirt: PacSun / Shoes: Payless

I love the bow detail with the scoop back. So cute! And isn’t her bird tattoo amazing?! She designed it herself, using all music symbols. So beautiful.

Have a lovely day! xo Sara
