CLASSIC DETAILS

You will have to forgive me for being a little off the posting game this week. I've been working on setting up some great giveaways for you all for October and they have kind of taken control of my life this week. Add in organizing children's schedules, a vacation, and my husband's business... well, it's just been a little hectic. Although, I do promise you that you will DEFINITELY not be disappointed in what I've got in store for you all! I will keep you updated on all the events and will let out the secret for the first one at the end of this blog post!

To be honest, the past few days I just haven't been in much of an outfit mood. It seems that no matter what I put on it just doesn't make me happy. I don't know if I'm catching a cold or am just tired of what's in my closet, but I just haven't been able to find anything that just worked. As always when I am in doubt I like to fall back on outfits that haven't disappointed me in the past. And this outfit has never let me down.

As all of you know, I am a massive fan of preppy fashion. I will take an oxford with jeans and loafers over something trendy any day of the week. It's not that I don't appreciate in vogue clothing, I do, I just really prefer more modest pieces and classic designs. I will occasionally incorporate into my wardrobe something that is a bit more the style of the day, but ultimately I'm just more at home with my proper pieces.

The outfit I'm pulling today has one of the essentials for all prepster fashionistas- a pair of brightly coloured cropped pants. The bright pants not only bring a pop of colour to your outfit, but the fit of the pants also helps elongate your body instantly slimming you down. I further emphasised them with a classic blue academic blazer from the Gap and another prep essential- the striped shirt.

To finish out the look I incorporated the orange further into my outfit with a matching coloured statement necklace and neutral toned accessories with my wallet, shoes, and sunglasses.

With all the details in place I had to pull out one more essential for today's look- dog hair! Usually when I take my pictures I wait for a slightly cloudy day and take the photos outside. This has worked fairly well for me as lately it has been cloudy and rainy almost every day. However, today, there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was so bright outside that I was literally squinting and wondering if the sun was going to burn through my retinae. Instead of damaging my eyes, I decided to bring the whole setup into the house. Only problem- Kaiya, our husky.

Kaiya adores getting her picture taken and being part of all the fuss. Today was no exception. She wanted in today's pictures and after a few minutes of waiting patiently she was ready for her close up and for me to give her some loving. We got along well for the first few minutes of finishing out the pictures, but after that, she had enough and was ready for some full on attention. So, before you head off the blog today, be sure to leave some husky love in the comments below! Kaiya loves adoration from her fans!
