My brother's puppy decided to hop in at the end of my outfit photos. Isn't he the cutest?! My siblings and I do a Secret Santa every year and if I had him I would totally want to get one of Mr&MrsPaw's hilarious renaissance pet portraits so we could always remember how adorable he was as a puppy. He's growing bigger every week so I'm sure he'll be HUGE soon. I'll miss being able to have him sit on my lap for pets. 


I could even do one for my sister's dog, Shiba Inu's are pretty classy (especially the black and tan colors like Teddy) so it would be super funny to see him in a renaissance pet portrait. I've already done a Cuddle Clone of Layla, but maybe she could use a portrait too! And don't worry, they do cats as well, which would be a funny gift for Christian's Mom.

While I know we all have having to wear sleeves in Summer, sometimes it does get a little chilly at night at the beginning or end of the Summer months.  I've gotten together with a group of bloggers and we're all styling denim jackets for Summer! I went with the obvious - a cute, breezy dress and flat sandals. Perfect for any occasion from a barbecue, walk on the beach or keeping warm in the freezer section of the grocery store!

Check out my Instagram tomorrow to see everyone's looks!

Another frequently worn Summer piece making an appearance this week. We had a SUPER warm day on Memorial Day weekend so I wore this to a family get together where I also got to meet my new nephew - my cousin's baby (yes I looked it up and I can call him that or first cousins once removed.) Last year I bought a second of this dress so I can wear that when this one disintegrates from too much wear.

Last week I went on a family trip to Rhode Island for the 4th of July and to attend a family reunion. We stayed at a different house than usual because there were 10 of us plus a dog (my sister's!) and we needed a place that would accommodate that. This meant being a bit further from the beach than our normal spot. We were only a quarter mile down the road so we could bike to the beach but that's not easy when it's one of the hottest weeks of the year.  BUT we had this really fun rocky beach area down the street that I had to take photos at.

Also, you may have noticed something different about my hands. Rather than wearing all my rings I'm wearing one beautiful ring. Yep, I'm engaged! My boyfriend proposed a few weeks ago while we were camping in Vermont. I wanted to wait until we were able to tell most of our family members before sharing it publicly.

You don't see much of my fiancé on the blog apart from his talent as a photographer, but he makes occasional appearances over on my Instagram. How lucky was I to find a handsome, caring man who just happens to love taking photos and will let me take as many shots as we need for posts. I'm not one to get too mushy or personal on here - and I won't start now - but I will say that I'm extremely happy to have found Christian and to be able to spend the rest of my life with him.

And for those of you that missed it on Instagram, here's the photo I shared last week.
Here's a super old throwback for you! 7 years ago! I do still have the shoes I wore in this outfit but they aren't stylish AT ALL so I switched it up! I can't believe I've had this dress for over 7 years. It's going to be a sad day when it's too beat up to be worn. Maybe I should try and find it on eBay!

Here's my only outfit post from Aruba. Most of the other days I wasn't thinking about taking photos by myself so they're all group photos. These were taken when we did a Jeep tour to see some of the sights and snorkel in the Natural Pool. More photos from that tomorrow!

Elle France has featured KARL by Karl Lagerfeld collection pieces! If you recall I attended the launch of the KARL line with net-a-porter back in January.  The shoot features Karl Lagerfeld with a pair of models who are, of course, wearing clothes from his KARL line. Net-a-Porter is still the only place where you can buy KARL items so be sure to head over and purchase items now before they sell out!
