- Not too much this week! Thanks to all who followed, liked, loved, subscribed, and gave positive comments to my comedy project's, Just Shair, launch last week! A few have been asking when the next video will be, and that answer is...in theory it was supposed to be this week as we have a few segments filmed. Unfortunately both Shannon and myself have been sick for a combined 10 days now, so the editing etc process has slowed. Within the next week or so we will have new content again, chickadees!
- Look out for me soon on an awesome blogger's guest post section soon! ;) Details to follow ASAP!
For my first post of official spring, I figured that it couldn't be more fitting to wear one of the most spring friendly dresses that I own! This spring appropriate dress is the Bernie Dexter Serenity Bridge print in the Veronique cut. This was a lucky find over Black Friday as Unique Vintage was all sold out (after putting this dress on sale), and then one XS was magically restocked right before their BF sale was half off all sale items! Finding a Bernie dress for in the $40 range is like finding gold, y'all! This dress can be found at retail on her site here, or in a one sleeve version, skirt, or top.
My blogger friend Emily (check out her site here!) asked if I ever covered (or will) the Veronique fit from Bernie on my most recent Gaga for Bernie Dexter post. I went back and looked at my original Gaga for Bernie thinking I had covered that style before in depth, but it turns out I kind of glossed over that style in my original post! Whoops! It's worth going into this style so perhaps in Gaga for Bernie 3 I'll fully delve into the Veronique fit, but for the record it's one of my favorite fits from Bernie Dexter. It's tight as pinup dresses should be, but still comfortable but true to size. That said, this particular one seems to be shorter than the other one or two that I own...
Caridgan- Old Navy

Motivational and positivity time:
I've recently remembered that it's good to remind yourself, via mantras or otherwise, what you're fighting for in life or what you believe in. Life can be so messy under the best of circumstances and when things get especially busy, I find it's easy to lose sight of things and get lost in the shuffle. The first 3 months of 2016 for me has been a mix of both mundane good and bad things, with a fair amount of excitement thrown in. I'm trying to center myself currently but taking a step back mentally and remembering why I'm doing anything that I'm doing and what kind of person I believe is the best version of myself. It sounds so simple, but in the midst of chaos I can forget the bigger picture and only immerse myself in the day to day. Thought I'd share...because I figure if this can happen to me it can happen to others too!
Excuse me while I Sonic Youth NERD OUT for a second. My favorite band is Sonic Youth (you may know this by now). I also follow the band's side projects, past and current. Ciccone Youth and Free Kitten probably tie for favorite Sonic Youth side project, with perhaps a lean on Free Kitten. Which brings me to the name of this blog post! "Greener Pastures" is a Free Kitten song, and how perfect is that for a post on this green scenery dress?
