Caledonia, You're Calling Me // Daily Outfit


 If I hadn't known it was January when I was taking these photos, I would have sworn it was early spring! It was freezing cold, but the birds twittering in the trees + the smell of the fresh earth and vegetation could have easily had me thinking it was March - and I really wish it was. To be completely honest I didn't have the best of autumns/winters in 2012, and I am more than ready to get back to the warmth and fun of spring and summer.

Later this month I'm taking a trip to visit my aunt and uncle in Missouri, and I am so, so excited! My aunt and uncle are like my third set of grandparents, and I used to spend a week with them every summer, but I haven't been down to their ranch in nearly three years, and I miss it so much! It'll be really good to get back to my roots and spend some quality time with + reconnect with some really special people.

On another subject, ta da!!! What do you all think of my new dress?? My lovely cousin, Molly made it for me as a birthday/Christmas gift, and I couldn't be more thrilled with it!  It's called the Caledonia dress after a cute little town near my aunt and uncle's ranch and will be available on Molly's Etsy shoppe later this spring!

I've also hired her to make me another dress out of this gorgeous fabric. I can't wait to wear it with my Litas/Dolce Vitas shoes! I really don't think Molly realizes what she's gotten herself into! Lol. *winks*

P.S. Everyone should go wish Molly a happy birthday on her blog! She's such a dear. ♥
