I know, a puppy, on this blog! I generally categorize myself, and am categorized by the world at large, as a cat person but that isn't to the exclusion of other animals. My dear, long-time, once-internet friend Amy moved back into my area recently, and after a few while she and her husband procured the sweetest little corgi puppy! Of course this means I need to run up to her neck of the woods as often as possible so that we can be unabashedly girly in our outfits, eat delicious meals and snacks, and hang out with the little corgi puppy named Sansa.
I've been struggling lately with accessories. I'm suddenly sick of necklaces, belts, all the extra bits that I normally love so much. I just want easy summer dresses and blouses with minimal frills (but a few, because I feel so unlike myself without something of a bow somewhere) and flats. I'm back to tote bags instead of little beaded things, and my hair is staying either down with minimal curl (who can be bothered when the threat of humidity is around every corner?) or plopped in a ponytail. I've forgotten how to do things like belts and jewelry.
Kater- Dress: Cumulus Laude Dress c/o modcloth, Shoes: Urban Outfitters circa fall 2010, Hat: Forever21 circa 2009
Amy- Dress: Vintage, Shoes: random mall store in Japan, Belt and hair flower: Forever21, Necklace: gift
Like this dress, I kept trying to belt it or put things over it, but nothing really felt right. It just seemed better on it's own, with a sunhat, with some simple flats.
I was really excited when Amy moved back to the area after being gone for ages, partly because we were friends in high school when I didn't have a car so even though she wasn't that far, neither of us could drive. But it's really nice to have a gal-pal to hang out with who has a defined personal style and always looks adorable.
Things devolved into silliness about ten pictures in, because we're girls incapable of being totally serious and graceful.
Hopefully this is only the first of many posts together! I'm still getting the hang of the self timer in more public spaces, and of course of posing with other people, so we'll have to do more posts to practice!
