What I Wore: the 4th

Today is not only our nation’s birthday (happy 4th!), but also the birthday of my little furkid. Happy 2nd birthday, Sienna! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed the bits of bacon last night, and the peanut butter goodies and new toy you get today.

The birthday pup, intrigued by the focusing noises my camera makes.

My version of red, white, and blue. I’m not usually one to color coordinate with holidays, but I just recently got this dress in a swap and thought it was perfect for the occasion. Color AND weather appropriate, and a nice length as well. So this is what I’m wearing around today as we spoil our puppy, cook up some beer brats, and then cuddle with our puppy who is scared of the noise of fireworks. We may even be able to see some from our yard.

What is everyone else up to for the 4th?

Sunglasses are a must during bright photo shoots like this, or I would just be sneezing my head off.




See? There’s some red in this outfit. Still my fav nail polish color.


Colors: Navy, White, Turquoise, Coral

Dress: Swapped. Originally had a black patent half belt sewn to the front, which I painstakingly and emphatically removed.
Shoes: by Colin Stuart, from Victoria’s Secret. Currently on sale in several colors, just fyi.
Necklace: I’ve had this forever.
Ring: Same with this.
Sunglasses: Probably Target, don’t recall.
