This past year and a half, we’ve faced numerous veterinary bills with our dogs and cats, and we know that so many of you have, too. We often receive emails and posts on our Facebook pages about…

And finally, after many months, a ’What I’m Wearing Now‘ post that features (mostly) pieces that weren’t a part of my maternity and/or immediate post-baby wardrobe! It’s a springtime miracle! I still have a lot of weight to lose (why didn’t anyone tell me finding time to work out is literally impossible when you have a baby and toddler without, like, a live-in nanny?), but it is slowly coming off which means that (aside from my unpleasantly large nursing boobs) I’m able to fit back in some of my favorite articles of clothing – and buy a few new pieces I love too.
This month has been interesting because we spent the first quarter of it in 85+ degree weather in Arizona, and the rest here in the Chicagoland, where, while it’s been much warmer than usual, is still on the tail end of winter. So as you can see from the collage above, there is bit of a mix of varying seasonal attire. And although I won’t be able to wear many of these pieces again until probably late May, it was kind of a nice sartorial preview of what is to come for my favorite time of the year for fashion. Give me all flowy tops, short dresses, cut-offs, and sunglasses, man. Speaking of which, this top and this top (not shown above), this dress (#10), these shorts (#6), and these sunnies (#2) were all new purchases this month. It’s all sorts of exciting to finally get to shop again – it’s probably been a year since I’ve been shopping for more than leggings and oversized tees.
What have you been wearing this month? Northern hemisphere friends, are you in warm weather clothes yet?
You’re never lonely with a dog … not only is he a great companion but he’ll be an ice-breaker as you walk around your neighbourhood. These three old man – and a Min Pin – are chatting in Beausoleil.
It has been five months since my last outfit post, but pregnancy and post-pregnancy will do that to you. As you guys know from my What I’m Wearing Now posts, even with the best intentions, maternity fashion just isn’t at the top of my priority list by half-way through the second trimester. It’s also basically freezing in Chicago from October through March and I’m just not ambitious enough to brave that sh*t to show you pictures of what I’m wearing. Getting to (sort of) wear normal clothes that I actually really like again though, coupled with the fact that I just spent a week in a place with not only phenomenal weather but also an insanely gorgeous natural backdrop, inspired me to shoot a couple of my current favorite outfits. And here’s the first one, in all its glory.
This look certainly isn’t anything fancy or complicated by any means, but I love it because it’s probably the exact outfit I would describe if someone asked me to define my style. It’s comfortable but not sloppy. It’s a little boho and a little minimalist and casual but also dressy enough to wear out to dinner (which is what we did right after we snapped these photos). I wish the earrings showed up better in the photos – my stepmom bought them for me in a small art gallery boutique we visited during our stop in the tiny town of Jerome and they’re gorgeous. This look just makes me happy, man. It feels good to be getting back to me. And I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to wear it here as well. I have a feeling it’s going to be my summertime staple.
Pet Product News recently reported on the current trend in our country of overweight pets. They mention Halo natural pet food in the article:
“Though not labeled as being for weight loss, many of Tampa, Fla.-based Halo, Purely for Pets’ natural pet food offerings meet the Association of American Feed Control Officials’ “light” criteria.”
Thank you Pet Product News for the recognition!
