Puppy Love

Dress? Ann Taylor, thrifted (similar here) Jacket? Maison Scotch Shoes? Coach (similar here) Belt? borrowed Necklace? Banana Republic (similar here)

I left sunny and pleasant Ontario and made it safely to windy and rainy Texas. There is a lot wrong with that weather confusion. But my disappointment in the weather has been soothed by hugs from Kendi, margarita's with Bryan and overwhelming love from their sweet baby Carlos. I do feel bad though because Carlos is clearly favouring me over them. I woke up this morning to find Carlos waiting at my bedroom door. I hope our friendship can survive a traitorous dog...

You know what they say about Texas (or maybe you don't since you're Canadian): Texas, it's like a whole other country.

This is so great! I love that jacket-it has so much interest and character. I always adore the fun details you put in your ensembles!

What the what is with that weather??? Cuh-razy!!! In other news, this dress is fantastic! I love the shear and the polka dots and I love how you toned down the girliness with this tough jacket. I'm sure the dog owners will forgive you for stealing their dog. Eventually . . . :-)

Please, please tell me you brought this jacket because you are going to put it in the swap and I am going to take it. No? Shoot. I think I will be sneaking into the Skeen household to steal it. See you tomorrow!

Simply adore this dress. The length is so uncommon but very flattering. Love the mixture of textures that the jacket brings.

You and Kendi together! I love it! You guys are my favorites, so I love thinking of you together. It's like that time a week ago when I saw a picture of Cousin Matthew and Branson from DA together and my heart nearly exploded with joy and cute overload. Kinda like that.

I love how easily you pull off the longer skirts. They are s flattering and adorable on you. This dress is so perfect for the spring time. I can see you reworking it multiple ways! - Katy
