The Cherry Blossom Girl has long been a favorite fashion blogger of mine–the inspiration for the new background on my blog is clear!! We have to name a lot of pieces for Hello Holiday, and we often refer to people who are on our minds when we’re titling new inventory and writing product descriptions–this one is for Alix, the Cherry Blossom Girl. D’accord, pourquoi pas?

So I’m *almost* moved in to my new apartment–all the main furniture is there except a few dressers for Alice’s room, a buffet table for the dining room, and a beautiful upholstered chair with embroidery all over it. Most of the furniture I brought in came from the home of my great-great-grandmother Edna, and she had the most impeccable taste and took care of everything so well. It’s really fun to see the pieces she loved in my home now. My spare room will be available for guests on Airbnb and I look forward to photographing the space as soon as I have everything settled in. Plus of course I gotta write about it here. It’s so pretty, you guys. I’m so glad to be living somewhere I love.
This is one of my favorite out-to-dinner dresses to wear lately. When I found this red gingham-print dress from UK designers Emily and Fin, I knew we had to get it in the store before Summer. It’s just perfect for every party, cotton, washes well, pockets, cute back. Pretty much everything I look for in a party dress. I also like that it’s roomy in the bust, which is ideal for ladies like me with a bit more on top.

I guess it’s lame to start a blog post by talking about the weather, but ’tis the season to blab on and on about how nice it is outside in Omaha! We finally had a gorgeous sunny day in the 70s here and from the looks of the forecast, the lovely days are here to stay. In Nebraska we tend to bypass Spring completely and go from 50 degrees to 90 degrees in the span of a week or so.
So pretty much every time we go out to take photos near our office, we get catcalled by somebody. Either a guy drives by and feels the need to yell something out his window, or it’s a group of kids (kids!) walking home from school, or it’s a person walking in or out of one of the nearby bars. I always respond with the thumbs down. Sometimes I say “I don’t wanna hear that” or “Go f— yourself.” I like that Sarah keeps taking pictures as I react.
The other day a man with his young son in the front seat of the car rolled his window down and yelled “Hey ladies! Lookin’ very sexy! That’s what I like to see!” You should have seen Sarah rip into him about being a role model for his son. Shoutout to men who end the cycle of street harassment by not modeling it for their children. Thumbs downin’.
At first I was kinda unsure of how to wear this shirt with the beautiful sheer panel, but when I put it on I wasn’t uncomfortable in it at all. I’ve never worn anything like this and I don’t have the most confidence about my midsection but with a pair of high-waisted shorts it was perfect. I’m thinking about picking it up for my trip to Germany this summer. (I’m going! I’m going! June 10-18, tickets booked.)
