Sarah's New Found Feminism

I have recently noticed that I am becoming much girlier. It's not that I wasn't a girl before, I have been since  birth, it's that my tastes and preferences are changing to more feminine things. I used to be the type of gal to wake up, throw on a pair of jeans and a tshirt, put my bed head in a ponytail and head out the door. Now, I think about what I want to wear, I (usually) do my hair, I paint my nails, I use hairspray. I have decided that I want to start wearing lipstick (and I'm on a journey to find the perfect shade). I want to learn how to do more hairstyles. I want to learn how to cook more and better meals. I think these little picture collages are a reflection of my new found feminism. 

1). I'm not sure if this dress would look good on me (it might make me look preggo or like a square), but I sure think it's nice.
2). I love this quote by itself. But cutting it out of paper makes it even more lovable.
3). I really like Oxfords. They're dressy and casual all at the same time. And I adore these Steve Madden oxfords. But who doesn't love Steve Madden?
4). People. This is literally (did you get that bolded, italicized action goin' on?) the most flattering dress I have ever tried on. I went to anthro after work and tried some stuff on. I almost died from this dress's cuteness. I want to wear it to our reception in UG. Too bad I don't have $168 sitting around.
5). These boots are so cute. I love that they're kind of plain, but they could go with a lot of different outfits. They also remind me of autumn : )
6). Again, I don't know if this would look good on me, but I love the concept. I love the colors and the print of bows on this dress!! Ahhh, I die.
7). I don't think I could ever actually buy this cookie jar because every time I would see it on my counter, it would just cause me to crave ice cream. But it's ca-ute!
8). This colorful, striped maxi dress could potentially make me look really wide because of the horizontal stripes, but I think it's darling. I first saw the dress on this blog and I fell in love with it. So lovely.
9). I want to use these straws whenever I drink anything. They make me happy.
10). I am in love with this little shirt dress. It seems really versatile and easy to pair with other things. I want to wear a big belt with it.
11). I am currently searching (in my own closet and beyond) for a perfect outfit to wear while traveling. Frank and I will be traveling for more than 24 hours when we go to UG, so I want to be comfortable. This skirt would be perfect, I think...
12). Coconuts. I have quite recently discovered that I like coconut flavored things. We currently have almond joy flavored coffee creamer, I just had the mocha coconut latte from Starbucks (delish!), and the other day I had the most delicious coconut flavored frozen yogurt (thanks for taking me out to lunch, Sally!!) at Red Mango in Schaumburg. Mmmm. So. Good.
13). This ring is just so simple and darling. It reminds me of my marriage vows and the fact that I am forever tied and sealed to my husband. And I wouldn't have it any other way.


  1. Sarah...believe it or not...our tastes as of late are really quite similar. Even though we haven't seen each other in forever! Miss you! and Love you!

  2. This post convinced me that I want Oxfords, even though I have been resisting this trend for over a year.

  3. Becky-I've been resisting it too! But these are the FIRST pair that made me really want to partake in the trend.

    Molly-I miss and love you too : )
