My 2018 Review, and Something New

Hello, friends, and Happy 2019!! I want to give a Super Shout-Out to the people, places, and organizations that allowed me to write about them in 2018. A Big Thank You to:

Longview Farms (March)
Six Businesses from Work Break, Grayton Beach Style (July)
The Fuzzy Pineapple (September)
Bugible (October)
Reflect and Raggedy (November)

In 2018, I moved to a new blog template. Some of my older posts may look a little wonky, since they were written in another template. If you click on the title once or twice, that should help!

Without further ado, as I mentioned in my November ’18 post, this post is about re-making my maxi dress into a skirt! The dress was re-fashioned by Maura at Sewing Creations by Maura. I’d love to hear what you think!

Which do you prefer? The maxi, or the mini? Well, it's not exactly a mini, I'll wear it to work a lot!

Is anyone else a member of the Red Shoe Nation? :)
This was my mom's purse. I think she would have liked this outfit, 🙏

Before - And I loved wearing it belted like this!

Waisted by Maura! 

Time to take this skirt out to dinner!
I hope you like my new footer logo, created by The Current Agency. I think it represents the ultimate purpose of my blog, which is to connect people from all over the world, whether you live in an urban or rural environment, or somewhere in between. I also wanted to highlight the importance of green spaces in urban environments and the need to protect our coastlines.

Is there anything about the logo that stands out to you? Thank you for reading!


  1. Great job with the new template. That's what I started to play with on my blog, too. It's a neat idea and your space looks great.

    Love the skirt and the shoes really make it all pop together well. Good on, you!

    Here's to a wonderful and yummy 2019 with a great big side of boogie boogie.

    1. Happy New year, Ivy!! Thank you, the blog is a work in progress, it's fun to play around with (mostly) :) Yours is looking awesome, and the content always brings a smile to my face!!

    2. Thanks for the kind words, Rebecca! Here's to a kickbutt good 2019!

  2. Happy New Year, Rebecca! The skirt turned out lovely, and you look great. Also, love the heels. Such a gorgeous color! I look forward to many more interesting posts from you this year as well. :D

    1. Thank you, Jigeesha!! See you around the blogosphere!!

  3. I really like the new template! Well done! And what a fabulous idea to turn your maxi dress into a skirt. It looks fantastic! I love how you styled it with red accessories as well. :)

    1. Thank you, Lindsey, I’m glad you like the new template, I’m enjoying it, so far! 😊 People seem to like the dress-to-skirt redesign, I will definitely wear the skirt to my office job a lot! Hope your day is going great!
