So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I wanted to sew it up as soon as I heard about the “sewalong” being hosted by some of my favorite bloggers: Allie, Rachel, Maddie, and Anya. The Orla dress is a classic fit and flare shape making it a very simple and versatile dress.Read More

The Mr. and I have officially been married for one year! It's crazy how the time has flown by; yet it feels as if we've been together for forever. (A little too "Rick Astley?) I don't want to get all gushy about it, but I have quite enjoyed being married.Read More
