Peaches and Cream


Hello there, everyone! Yesterday, I decided to actively look cute, which is, regrettably, becoming more and more uncommon considering I have to look sharp for work these days. I was eager to wear my brand new Topshop shoes, part of my first purchase from my first paycheque! I thought they were too cute to pass up, despite not having much red in my wardrobe collection--something I want to change very soon! I rummaged through my closet to find something to match, and I found this dress I bought over a year ago at Forever 21! I loved the collar and puffy sleeves! Incidentally, Sammi of The Soubrette Brunette wore the same dress in a post recently that I loved, so I was thinking of her all day! I have been unsure about the print ever since I bought it... she says apples, and I was told peaches! They could even be mangoes for all I know. For now, I will just refer to it as my "fruit dress". It gets my so excited for autumn!

In other news, isn't my hair getting so long?! I guess you all don't really know unless you read my old blog, but this past April I cut my hair to pixie cut length (perfect for The Petite Pixie, no?), and have been desperately trying to grow it back. It's growing so fast and it's so healthy since I've been avoiding heat and colouring. I'm really excited, and I hope it will be at least shoulder length come holiday season. What are you all looking forward to?

Stay sweet ♡
Sarah

Pink for October

Well, hello there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? As you can probably imagine, with the start of school and a new job, I haven't had much time to myself lately, but I am finally getting into the swing of things and learning how to manage my time a bit better--so hopefully that'll mean lots more posts headed your way! But to make up for my absence, I have a special treat for you--two outfits in one post! Whee!!

Earlier this month I had the privilege of kicking off Pink Month with the ├╝ber talented Lauren Crow
(whose work you can see on her website, Tumblr, and Flickr) and we had ourselves a cutesy little photo shoot/reunion and despite the blisters all over my feet, it was a really fun day! (You can find more pictures from the shoot on her website, Tumblr, and Flickr as well!) Of all the photo shoots I've had, this one is definitely the most me, wouldn't you say? ;-)


It's been nice and sunny here in San Francisco, as it gets in October, one of the many other reasons to love this month! The warmth makes for insanely gorgeous lighting, with the help of some amazing photography skills, of course!


Be sure to sport your pink this month to share your support for breast cancer awareness (and because it's just an amazing colour...) and look forward to lots more where this came from!

Stay sweet ♡ 
Sarah

P.S. Thank you, Lauren, for an awesome shoot! And thanks to Anna for doing my hair all cute (even if you burnt my forehead)! ^_^
