Meet Vivian!

I've been wanting to do this post for a while. I know I've mentioned it a few times but I do have a new furry addition to my household!! I got Vivian in late July and she was only two months old. I've had a pretty hard year but adopting Vivian has definitely been the best thing I've done all year. 

I picked her out at the local PetSmart (but she was in a shelter. They keep animals at PetSmart that are all ready to be adopted that day!). She was pretty shy at first but as time has gone on (and she's grown up a little) her personality has shown through! She's extremely playful but also loves a good nap. I love it when I go to sleep at night and wake up in the morning she's sleeping right next to my head! It is too cute. 

My plan was to take these photos outside because I loved this outfit so much but I thought if I took them inside it would also give me an opportunity to get some pictures of Vivian. This outfit is entirely thrifted (except my shoes). My skirt is one I thrifted, originally from Anthropologie, and I was trying to sell it online. Surprisingly no one wanted it!? It's so pretty! So, I decided to give it a go. It's got pockets and everything! What more could you want? 

I'm thinking of doing a remix post for my shirt though because I've worn it plenty of times on the blog! My shoes are from Kohl's and seriously some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn! And they're on sale!

Do you have any furry friends at home?

Not Quite Fall

I thought about explaining where I've been the past few weeks or just writing about my clothes. But writing something a little lighthearted today sounded perfect! 

While I'm writing this post it is a toasty 80-something degrees outside (26ish c). What is going on in the world?? This past week I actually switched over my closet from summer to fall, which I'm regretting now. I'm just staring at my closet longing for the moment I can wear a sweater and not want to die of heat stroke! I remember doing the same thing last year around this time and you think I would have learned by now. I just have a lot of fall pieces I can't wait to style. Is that so much to ask for in October? 

 But I thought it'd be a good time to show off one of my favorite dresses in my collection right now. I've actually had this dress for almost a year but haven't shown it on the blog! It has no tag so I just tried it on with a whim and I so glad I did! It's one of my favorites for work. I would probably wear it once a week if I could.

My shoes are a recent fall purchase as I was in desperate need of a new black bootie! I, luckily, found these in the children's section of Target! Can you believe it? I have a feeling you'll be seeing them a lot in the next few months (if it ever cools down....). 

Dress: Thrifted
Hat: Gift
Shoes: Target

Does it feel like fall where you are?

Birchbox vs. Sephora PLAY! / Video

I've noticed two things recently. 
1. I have been putting out a lot of video content 
2. A lot of my content has not been style related.

I can explain why. When I started editing my vlog of Canada (I've been working on it for months!) I realized how much I LOVE making videos. I like every aspect of it. I love filming and editing so why not keep exploring this passion? I'm currently working on an "alternative" apartment tour of sorts. I'm excited to see how it turns out. 

Another reason I haven't had much fashion content lately is due to some health problems I've been having lately. Normally I'd go out and shoot my outfits on the weekends really early in the morning but I've been spending my weekends resting as much as possible. I am hoping the fatigue will be gone soon as I love fall fashion and want to show you guys what I've been wearing! 

Anyways, do you subscribe to any beauty boxes?
