Home With The Dogs

DSC_8731
Since I've been back at my parent's, I've spent a lot of time with all the animals, catching up with my youngest brother and making my mom take my outfit photos. I wore this particular look on Christmas Eve, which was a low key day of baking, grabbing dinner at a chain restaurant and listening to the bickering of my aunt and cousin which makes any holiday complete. I have a pretty small family, but the ones I have are the most amusing. I find myself jotting down notes of funny things that happen and/or texting them to Merl.
I have a little obsession with faux fur and I loved how one of my vests looked when I tested it out over this coat. Voila, instant extra warmth and that pimp factor I occassionally love to add in my looks. I've also starting trying this new bun hairstyle I learned from Veronika's messy bun tutorial. So. Easy! It requires an elastic band and only two bobby pins to hold my hair!

This is my first time visiting your blog but it's fabulous. First, I have died and fell in love with your glasses. I'm just waiting for mine to break so I can attempt that frame. And second, I love australian shepherds. I have a favorite .. his name is Frankie and they are just the most gorgeous dogs.

although I wouldn't look good in those cuts of jeans, I love those outfits in the last picture. The girl with the skirt is the best. can't believe the prices either.
