Pretty Pink Panda

The "storm of the century" ended up being a lot less of a "thing" than anticipated (luckily!). It got really dark and broody around 4pm and then the already-insane winds picked up, the rain rolled in and the hail started falling. We just woke Toby up from his nap and were about to make a break for the basement (the entrance is outside) but then all of a sudden the clouds parted and all was well again. Hopefully everyone stayed safe!

Before the big storm Georgia managed to slip out of her harness (what is with us losing our animals this week?!) and she made a run for every single mud puddle in the neighborhood. I can't even. Here's what she ended up looking like:
 
I wanted to be mad but I just couldn't! I couldn't stop laughing as Mike and I were lunging after her in our pajamas in the front yard. If ever a dog has loved mud/water, it's this one. And goodness knows she'd sink if it were above her head! Anyway -- I wasn't sure I'd make it to work last night but I did. Guess that's a good thing since I only worked one night last weekend. Phew! That drive is wearing me out. Between Toby being go, go, go and late nights/early mornings, I'm pooped. Welcome to the real world, I guess! Haha

As for this outfit -- I picked up this dress at Forever 21 a couple of weeks ago and this cardigan: Walmart! I know. I normally really hate shopping at Walmart (the experience is just so meh!) but I saw this baby out of the corner of my eye and I just had to have it. It's so perfect with this black + white outfit. The belt was a lucky 25 cent find at Salvation Army back when we visited Susannah + Chris in Chicago. And the shoes... Oh my Jeffreys! They feel like such distant friends since having a toddler in the house. This is the first heeled shoe I've worn in over 2 weeks. My shoes seem immediately impractical haha I got my new iPhone case on ModCloth and it's just so cute! I won a giveaway on Chelsey's blog a few weeks ago and got a $100 ModCloth giftcard (woot! I never win anything!) so I snagged me up all kinds of cute things! I'll have to share some soon!

Alright friends, I'm off to enjoy this sunshine! Even if it is a crazy 30 degrees cooler than yesterday! xo

Walmart cardigan
Thrifted belt
Target tights

PS; This is probably the most "natural" state of my hair you'll ever see (you know, with extensions). This is what my hair looks like after I wash it and let it air dry. Not straight but not curly. It's nice and easy haha

PPS: ENID CAME BACK! 24 hours on the dot. I'm so so happy! Lots of kitty kisses ensued!

  6. Tell me about it! I was hanging out in a damn crawlspace with a cat thinking we were going to die. & then it hailed for maybe 5 minutes.. (thankfully of course)

    I love the picture of Georgia, btw ;)

  7. Your dog is just too precious! I've always wanted a bulldog but everyone tells me they're a lot of work and in an apartment stuff like that is near impossible. :(

    Luckily my little Doxie hates water so less cleanup for me! lol

  15. hahaha. Those pictures of a mud-covered Georgia just made my day. My pug, Ugg, slips out of her harness sometimes too, but she's scared to death of puddles.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hehe that photo of you holding Georgia was probably my favorite Instagram photo of you ever. I have found cute stuff at Walmart before though I agree, the experience usually makes me want to gouge my eyes out! Glad Enid came home!

    ReplyDelete

  24. Oh, that last picture is so funny. The expression on her face!

    I am so happy Enid came back! Yay!

    Also, that flower cardigan is FANTASTIC and I'm super jealous because when I go to Wal-Mart, all I ever find are mom jeans and t-shirts with Justin Bieber's face on them.

  29. that picture of you holding georgia is so funny! when i saw it on your tumblr i thought it was a statue!
    i was at work during the store. my husband called me and was like "there is golf ball sized hail falling!!" and he was standing outside IN IT. haha, i'm so glad the storm wasn't as bad as they were predicting. i would much rather be safe than sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  30. oh my goodness but you look sooooo beautiful. i LOVE that outfit so much. i just ordered that same dress from forever 21 and can't wait for it to come in. i am coveting that sweater. this has to be one of my all time favorite outfits of yours. for some reason pink and black are really grabbing me this spring even though they aren't the "it" colors.

    your dog and the mud just kills me. soooo cute and funny. i love it. our labradoodles always have to wrestle when it's muddy and they're buff and white. it is unbelievable but hilarious too. i so get that. oh i'm so happy enid came home.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love that dress! We don't have a F21 here so whenever we go out of town, I have to find a F21 and get a dress! haha

    Georgia looks so content chillin' in the mud! I don't know if I could be mad either. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. you look wonderful, love the stripes mixed with floral print

  33. "And the cat came back! The very next day, oh the cat came back [s]he just couldn't say away, away, away." Haha! Lyrics to one of my little sisters' songs when they were littler. :D If you're ever looking for good music for a toddler Laurie Berkner is great - fun for the kids, but it doesn't make the adults around want to rip their ears off. Lol! Anyway, I am so glad that Enid came back! Must be such a relief for you guy!

    This outfit is so gorgeous. Seriously, one of my favorites, ever, I think. I love the colors + the mixed patterns. Your style always inspires me so much.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend with your guys!

  36. I'm so relieved Enid came back!! It terrifies me thinking of any animal running around on their own, even if it's not my animal! I have no idea what I would do if Rex got out!
    THOSE SHOES <3 they are soo nice! I wish I could wear heels like this, but I end up being taller than my fiancé and I hate it :(

    ReplyDelete
  37. My first thought was how much I love that cardigan. Good to know I can find it at walmart, hopefully!

  41. Oh my god that dog is adorable! Our dogs do the same thing. When Watson was a puppy he ran out in the back yard and just rolled and dug and rolled in that awful muddy clay. But he was so happy and looked so goofy, all we could do was laugh!

    Here he is as a grownup :) http://scissorsandsteam.blogspot.com/2012/03/not-even-remotely-weekly-granny-stripe.html

  43. ahahahahahha! the dog is AMAZING! i wouldn't be able to stop laughing either! the only time my pup got out, i got her to chase me back into the house, but she realized she was in trouble, and ran across the street. i thought she was running into the main road, then she turned and went to someone's door and started scratching and whining. haha.

    i love, love, love your phone case! it's so adorable. and your outfit goes perfectly with it

    ReplyDelete
  44. Muahaha your dogs are the best! How awesome is this pic of Georgia in the big mud puddle?! She must have had so much fun :) CUUUTE!
    And I'm glad your kitty came back! No more worries ;)
    And what I actually wanted to say was: omg your outfit is SO adorable! I love the stripes and florals and these ridiculously pretty shoes! <3

  45. LOL @ your dog! Cute post. Absolutely love how your outfit matches your phone case, too... ! xox

    ReplyDelete
  46. First off I'm so glad your kitty came back! She must have missed her Momma as much as her Momma missed her! Your hair looks like mine does when it is air dried! That in between state of being wavy and straight!

    Also, Georgia looks like the happiest dog in the world in that picture! I've never seen a dog so happy to be laying the the mud as she does!

  60. I love everything about this outfit. I love pink + black together. EEK so adorable! I'd never guess you'd find the cardigan at Walmart! Great find.
    Also so glad to hear the storms missed you. I still own a house in Hendersonville and my friends rent it from me, and I have a lot of friends in that area. I was so relieved it passed through!

  66. Hi, i have a question about cheek piercing.
    This is the second time i have my cheeks done, and i got balls inside my mouth, but my skin has grew over them too as they did to the normal piercing. Is it dangerous for me to just let them grow inside of my mouth??

    Please answer me at : purpleillusionist.blogg.no (so i know when you have answered me)

  71. Ugh, I hate Walmart, but I love that cardigan so much that I might have to go on an adventure. I always play "count the teeth" and see if I can make a full mouth of teeth out of everyone with a mullet. Bonus points for gold teeth!

  72. I love this look! I want to steal your dress! Also, that picture of Georgia cracked me up and I'm glad Enid is back safe and sound!

  73. I love the cardigan, it is from Walmart?! *gasp* I hate buying clothes at Walmart too although I honestly have some really cute things from Walmart. I love the striped dress as well, adorableness. Muddy Georgia, how cute, I love watching animals roll around in mud, they look so contented. Congrats on winning the $100 modcloth gift card! I would be jumping up and down with joy, I love modcloth. Lucky girl! I'm so glad Enid came back!! Yay.
