What I Wore: Sweater (Joules), Skirt (Pin Up Girl Clothing), Boots (Similar Here), Necklace (Sammydress), Belt (Similar Here)


We'd been enjoying some truly unusual spring weather. Unusual in that is was, well, typical. It was chilly but starting to get warmer and there was rain and that just doesn't normally happen. But beautiful things never last and on a Sunday morning one could see- this was the Last Chance to wear a skirt- for a while at least. 

Even so, it was nippier out than it had been, so I paired it with my favorite sweater. 

Speaking of Terriers though, Stella got a new haircut.  She is no longer the little puffball that has previously graced these pages. While her diminutive size will always make her a "perma-puppy," she now looks like quite the little grown up lady now. The Boy even borrowed a grooming book which had this gem of a quote in it: "Today's Wire (Fox Terrier) is the epitome of elegance and style. He is known and appreciated where ever dog fanciers gather, and is also a wonderful pet as clever and lively as he is handsome." 

I don't know what it is but I've always been tickled pink at reading descriptions of dog breeds, which are, at the same time, so playful and so serious, and are so true and yet not. All dogs have such distinct personalities, yet I do think genes show and certain breeds tend to exhibit those same certain traits over and over. Maybe it is like horoscopes, where they are just vague enough you could mean anybody (I'm a Virgo, by the way. You?). But still- labs are just not the same kind of energetic as a terrier and both are different than a chihuahua. All great, but different. So I guess what I'm saying is- dog descriptions: one of lifes great small pleasures. 

Do you have any small thing that makes your day like that? Clever puns? The Dear Abby columns? Spill it!

  3. I'm a Gemini, haha! And I've never actually read any dog descriptions- I'm very curious now to see some more, the one you shared was really cute. I love that serious but (to us) silly take on it. It kind of reminds me of the movie Best in Show- have you ever seen it? It's a mockumentary on a dog show and it's hiiiiilarious.

  8. You look lovely! I've been in Fiji and am just catching up on all my blog reading. Small things that make my day - waking up and walking through a silent, empty home. It is so peaceful, everyone has left and it just makes me happy. It's a lovely way to start the day :)
