// Dreaming of Spring


Yesterday it was an incredible 62 degrees here! The sky was a gorgeous shade of blue, and the sun was out in full force. I was so excited to shed the layers and run errands while it felt so great outside. Of course I know it was just a tease since it'll be cold again in no time, but boy I'm ready for Spring! I try to not wish the days away but I'd wish winter away completely if I could. Can I move to south Florida?! Anyway, since it was so nice out, I decided to wear my new dress! It was the perfect day for it. Okay so it may have been a wee bit windy, but I just held onto my skirt and hoped for the best haha! This Bernie Dexter dress from Unique Vintage is a dream! The skirt has the perfect amount of volume without needing a petticoat, and it fits so so well. I topped it off with a kelly green cardigan and a long chain necklace from Stitch Fix. I had curled my hair earlier yesterday morning and it looked awesome, but the second I stepped out the door it was so frizzy! I hate when that happens.

Today's outfit post is part of the official launch of Unique Vintage's "I am Unique" campaign and I'm excited to be part of the first UV Style Council. The Style Council is made up of a handful of bloggers of varying shapes and sizes, all aiming to promote body positivity and personal style. You can check out some of the other gals involved, and post your own body positivity photos, using the #iamunique hashtag!


This past weekend Mike and I went "car shopping" since the weather was so nice on Saturday. I could totally get used to 60 degree days in January! We're not looking to buy another car quite yet, but we know it'll be sometime fairly soon (maybe in the next year or year and a half) since we definitely want more kids. Between his truck and my Xterra we only have one family vehicle. 2 car seats and a booster might fit in my Xterra, but it'd probably be a bit tight, so we'll need to upgrade before there's another bun in the oven. We had our hearts set on a larger SUV and ideally not a van. Since it would be our primary family vehicle, we need to plan ahead for quite a ways so we definitely need a third row of seats. I love driving a Nissan so we made sure to check out those options and I think we've got our eyes on a Nissan Armada at some point. It's nice and big but not huge. I don't know how families with 4+ kids get around! Do you have a larger family? If so, what kind of car(s) do y'all have?!

After we did some car shopping we headed over to our friend Maya's new place to check it out. Maya hadn't met Linden yet so it was awesome to spend some time with her and let her see L for the first time. We grabbed a late lunch at Olive Garden on Saturday and I think every single server in that restaurant held/touched Linden in some way. I try not to be overly protective but with the flu the way it is here I just wanted to dip him into a bucket of hand sanitizer haha! I know they were all well meaning and so so sweet, but it can be a little off putting when a stranger just ups and takes your baby out of your arms. We were so glad to get home and crash for the night. Sunday was relatively uneventful and Monday was more of the same, but we needed the rest. Remember how I said my house was sort of clean last week? Well that's totally not the case anymore and now I'm going crazy trying to tidy up with every spare second I have!


I'm thinking about doing another Kaelah's Closet cleanout to gear me up for some Spring Cleaning and my organizing mission. Would that be something y'all would be interested in? I'll probably post them on my @kaelahscloset Instagram again. Anything that doesn't sell will just get donated so I have less to deal with haha

Here's to a short, but hopefully very productive, week ahead! Have anything exciting planned?

    1. They do! It's insane. You end up finding yourself subconciously trying to do things to lessen the possibility - having whoever is holding her sit on the inside of the booth so anyone wanting to touch her has to reach over other people, telling people the baby is sick even if they really aren't, etc. It's just... you have no idea how much people see babies as some kind of weird public property until you have one, and it seems like there are grasping hands EVERYWHERE. And they're just being friendly, so you don't want to be mean!

    2. It's like the "you're pregnant?! I'm going to touch your belly" thing. I get it, you're lovely, but please at least ask before you touch me. Good grief. But yeah, the baby touching. I get that too, there are so many special things about babies and they're just being lovely and sweet and excited, but no. Please don't just randomly touch my baby.

  8. Man, I want a Bernie Dexter dress so badly! One day I'll definitely make a point of investing in one. I'm convinced they're the most flattering dresses ever!

  9. Absolute dream dress. It's just so beautiful. Argh, it's freezing in Scotland this week, quite literally. My poor postie fell today on some black-ice, hurt her back and arm, so I sent my Dad out to check on her. Didn't want to embarrass her, but wanted to check she was alright.

  10. I got this same Bernie from UV when they were having a sale, and I'm SO eager for warmer weather so I can wear it! It doesn't seem quite right to wear it when I'm surrounded by snow... oh, and I'd be super pumped if you did a closet clean-out again!

  17. This dress is so amazing and looks perfect on you. I really like the green cardigan paired with it. The cardigan reminds me that I haven't worn my green cardigan in a long time!
