A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

they call it puppy love...

In my head, my body loooked smaller and my arms were much, much larger. I guess, in the grand scheme of things, I'd rather have a lame-looking number four than those proportions, though. So.
shoes: american eagle outfitters. legwarmers: amazon (i think). tights: don't recall. skirt & shirt: gap. cardigan: j.crew. flower pin: downeast outfitters.

Charlie really wanted to be part of today's photo shoot. I tried to get him to look at the camera so you could see how cute he is, but he could only feast his brown puppy-dog eyes [Editor's note: No, seriously. They really are brown, and he really is a puppy.] on me. Because he loves me with that one-of-a-kind love that exists only between a dog and his beloved owner...and, in Charlie's case, between him and any human being who pets him and gives him treats. (Remind me why I'm a dog owner again? Oh, right. Because shoveling the backyard is so fun. I forgot.)

Actually, we were reading all about canines before we picked what kind of dog we wanted last Fall. In one of our books on boxers, we read that this breed tends to be fiercely loyal and protective; that they can sense if their loved ones are afraid or wary of someone and will compensate with protective bravery. After picking out our puppy, our 6-year-old son informed us, "Don't worry guys. I'll be so so nice to you so Charlie won't attack you."

Thank you, son. Because your dad and I were both quivering at the idea of an 8-week-old puppy attack. And also? Go clean your room.

Happy Pocket-Gets-Home-Today Friday! What, you're not celebrating too? Strange.

How I wore these items last: skirt, cardigan, leg warmers, ruffle shirt

First off, I just have to say that I adore your blog! You are so cute and witty that reading your blog is an absolute joy! I have decided to start a blog of my own and would love to have your insight, for example how do you stay on top of the daily posts, how do you get your blog name out there in the blogosphere? Would love to have any pointers or tips you are willing to share. In the meantime, keep up the great work, I look forward to your posts!

Haha be very thankful you don't have "4" sized proportions!

Love the legwarmers with the metallic flats here. So modern but very ballerina-esque at the same time.

Ashley said...

I'm super impressed by your creativity! Awesome work. Also, why don't my leg warmers look like that when I put them on? Hmmph. I'm envious!

Thanks for a post with legwarmers! I have some but couldn't ever really figure out how to wear them... now I have an idea. Btw, I LOVE boxers!!!!!!! My grandmother got one after my grandad died and it was the best thing we ever did for her!

The legwarmers rock, as previously stated. Also, the whole look is something I would have never put together but it works SO WELL on you. And I want your couch. The end.
