Nine to Fine

Modcloth Nine to Fine dress

I always feel guilty when we have a perfectly beautiful day and I don't go out to enjoy it.  These pictures almost never happened.  I had been out running errands all week and this was my only day to relax.  I figured I could go to a local hiking trail and take Bianca out while also getting some pictures for this post.  It worked out great, but people were looking at me kind of funny.  I guess I was overdressed to scale the mountain!

What's On My Radar: Current Loves

Since my birthday is on Christmas, I only get gifts once a year (not to mention, people think combining birthday and Christmas is okay.... Not okay at all!).  Kevin and the rest of my family have always done their best to keep my birthday separate from the holiday.  I think one of the best parts about it is getting that extra attention.  Who doesn't love that?  Here is my "I hope I get some of these" wishlist:

Bernie Dexter

1. Saturday Night dress in Lilac
2. Antonella dress in Red Gingham
3. Foxy Print Pinup dress
4. Veronique dress in Serenity Bridge print

Like I'd have a birthday wishlist without a few Bernie dresses on it!  I tried my hardest and I narrowed it down to these four.  I can't imagine having to pick between them but I really love that fox print.  What's your favorite?

1. Peppy Personality dress
2. And Many More dress
3. Day at the Ballet coat
4. Delectable Detour dress

No surprise that three of my four picks have polka dots on them!  I think my favorite is the coat, the few that I own are solid colors and I'd love to have something bright and fun.  Since I'm just a few weeks away from finishing my breastfeeding journey, I'm looking forward to wearing higher necklines again, much like the Peppy Personality dress.  I just love that bow!

Rebel Circus

1. Let It Snow dress
2. Red Dog Cardigan
3. Christmas Kitties Lizzie dress
4. Nautical Mermaid Flare dress

Rebel Circus is one of my new favorite places to shop.  They carry so many great brands!  Not to mention, their selection of cute novelty printed clothing is endless.  I'm especially smitten with the Voodoo Vixen mermaid dress, that print is just gorgeous.  FYI: They are having a HUGE sale right now too!

1. Premium Prom dress with lace applique
2. Jack Wills Plaid V-Neck dress
3. Frock and Frill Embellished Skater dress
4. Closet Skater dress in botanical print

ASOS has an infinite amount of adorable dresses!  The plaid dress definitely has my heart though, probably because it has pockets.  The Closet floral dress is also a favorite.  If you don't own a Closet dress, I'd highly suggest it.  I love their fabrics and their beautiful cuts.

I'm very curious to see what Kevin gets me for Christmas/my birthday.  He's been ridiculously secretive about the whole thing so I'm sure it's going to be something good!  What's on your holiday wishlist this year?

Winter Wonderland

Bernie Dexter Osterley dress in Winter Wonderland print 002

I think it's going to be very hard to top this outfit here.  I love every little thing about it!  Bernie Dexter has the greatest cuts with the most fabulous prints.  The minute I saw her winter print I knew it had to be mine.  I had been waiting until the day after Thanksgiving to break it out and I've been wearing it constantly ever since.  Here in southern California we don't have very many cold days, but that doesn't mean I can't dress the part (and without the crazy layers)!

Wouldn't You Gnome

Retrolicious Modcloth All Eyes On Unique dress in Gnomes 001

You wouldn't know it from first glance, but I live in a pretty beautiful city.  Unfortunately, it's the epitome of suburbia (Pleasantville the movie was filmed in my neighborhood) but there are still nooks and crannies of untouched land.  You can find everything from vast mountains, desert terrain, even a forest if you feel like driving ten or so minutes north.  My problem is mainly laziness (and a baby as an excuse) so I never show it off.  These days I'm determined to make pictures just as interesting as my outfits.

Dotted Gold

Heart of Haute top and skirt 017

Who knew black and gold was a match made in heaven?  This Heart of Haute ensemble has been a go-to outfit lately.  I don't usually venture outside of a basic circle skirt (or a skirt at all) but I really love the fit of this princess seamed beauty.  It hugs the right areas but flares out perfectly.  These pictures truly do it no justice!
