Everyone who knows me knows that I am officially obsessed with my pup Miss Pearl.  Need evidence?  See here and here.  She is a total sweetie and is really picking up on her training.  Not only am I obsessed with her, I am loving all things Scottish Terrier.  Over the weekend I picked up two scottie figurines at antique shops in Columbus.  I'm not even trying to hide my craziness.  This scarf lets me wear my love for Miss Pearl around my neck!  It was a gift from my husband when we first picked our pup out of the litter back in November.  Each time I wear it I remember holding her in the palm of my hand and wondering how I would wait 6 weeks to bring her home with me.

Sweater Puppies

Full disclosure: my husband paid me five bucks to name this blog post.  The things I'll do for a few quick bucks...shameful.

This weekend I was in Columbus, OH visiting with girlfriends and we hit up a pretty great thrift shop Rag-O-Rama.  They were having a dollar sale, so I got a few items for a buck!   I also loaded up my cart with an 80s electric plaid coat, a suspender skirt and a graphic print dress.  I can't wait to share my cheapy finds with you! Good thing I accept silly bets with my husband, because it helps me fuel my thrifting habit.

So how much of your wardrobe is thrifted or vintage?  What was your favorite find?

You Got to Have Friends

Everyone once in a while a girl has got to get out of town with her best girlfriends.  This past weekend we braved the snow and spent the weekend in Ohio catching up on gossip, sampling local brews and catching the (oh so disappointing) Ohio-Purdue game.  I am reminded how lucky I am to have really smart and beautiful friends that are always up to something exciting.

My friend Karin's beautiful Dutch Colonial style home served as my backdrop since the snow just kept coming and coming all weekend.  As much as I love the beautiful scenery snow gives, I am really really sick of wearing boots every day.  These poor Blossom beauties have really gotten their wear this winter.  I am ready for sandal weather, who is with me?

Cold Pink

I am doing something I never do today.  Pulling a total Kate Middleton and rocking nude pantyhose.  Yup, it's just me, Kate and the local seniors down at the retirement home wearing our tan hose.  This time of year is always rough, because I want Spring to come so badly that I just go ahead and dress like it's 30 degrees warmer.  Let's be honest, the pantyhose do nothing to keep your legs warmer.  I might be rocking hot pink today, but there is nothing hot about this look.

 I gotta say that things are really going my way these days.  I have hit a huge professional milestone this week, and to celebrate one of my best girlfriends and I hit happy hour at our favorite local pub.  To commemorate an awesome occasion I (for some unknown reason) chose to wear nearly all black.  It doesn't really seem celebratory, does it?  I need to pop on some bright pink or sequins or something, no?

I did, however, manage to wear one of my all time favorite pieces.  This skirt has been a central part of my wardrobe for a few years now.  I remember spying this tulip skirt at the Gap and patiently waiting for it to go on sale.  Once the price dipped I snagged it and never looked back.   See how else I have styled it here!

Thinkin' Cap

Time with my little pup Pearl is flying by so quickly!  Everyone thinks their dog is the canine equivalent of Einstein, but I gotta say she really is a smarty pants!  She knows sit, down, stay, wait and how to pee on the floor when I look away for 10 seconds.  See? Told ya she's smart.

Each week my husband and I take her to puppy class to teach her manners and socialize her with other dogs.  We basically pay money to roll around on the floor with tons of cute poochies.  You have to dress comfortable enough to chase your pup around, but you don't want to show up in sweatpants.  This is my happy medium.  One part comfy, one part stylish, on part covered in dog hair.

Let's talk about zero degree weather please.  I got a few looks whole snapping pics today.  Mostly from people wondering about the state of my mental health for willingly taking off my coat and hat to stand in a frozen alleyway.  As the temperatures drop it gets harder and harder to convince myself to venture outside for outfit pics.  I am already dreaming about the Spring that's promising us it's only a mere four weeks away.  I try and tell myself that sunny=warm, but it's not working.
