A Little Red Dress

7.21.2013

Dress: Forever 21 (similar here) // Shoes: Just Fab (similar here) // Clutch: Ross (similar here) // Bracelets: Asos (similar here & here) // Necklace & Triangle Ring: Fifth & Mae (similar here & here) // Ring: Forever 21 (similar here) // Sunnies: Old Navy (similar here) //
 
 
Happy Monday! I had such a relaxing weekend, I definitely didn't want it to end! So I got this dress from Forever 21 seriously so long ago, but it has always been one of my go-to casual dresses. It's extremely soft and comfortable, and the ruffled sleeves give it that extra something. As you've probably noticed, I'M NOT WEARING MY WEDDING RING AGAIN! I'm real mad/sad about it. My ring finger is still swollen and really hurting. Some days I can force it on, but it always ends up hurting worse. So for now, I'm improvising and wearing whatever ring fits for now.
 
And guess what, you guys?! We almost added another fur baby to our family this weekend. At first, we had our hearts set on a Husky/Wolf mix, and man was he gorgeous! And HUGE. I'm talkin' 150 pounds huge. But when we got to the adoption, another couple was there looking at him, and started filling out the paperwork to adopt him. But we weren't going to quit there, we ventured off to another pet adoption and found THE SWEETEST pitbull/terrier mix. Pitbulls always get a bad wrap, but this was seriously the calmest, most good-natured dog I have ever met. We drove home to get our dog, because of course we wanted to see how they'd get along. But the more we talked about it, the more we realized we just can't handle another dog right now, especially another big one. I'm starting school back up again in August, and there's just no way we could show two dogs the attention they need. Moral of the story? We didn't end up getting another dog, and I'm really sad about it. The end.

  12. aw no, what happened to your finger? and that's too bad you couldn't get a second pup, though i'm sure it is a lot of work, especially when you can't be at home for too much of the day. sometimes my friends won't go on *vacations* because of their dogs haha, so it's apparently a lot of responsibility! and ilove that dress- it's the perfect casual/fancy balance

  17. Are you kidding me right now? You combined my three absolute favorite colors and prints all into one outfit: red, turquoise and leopard! (Clapping) Love this look; the red looks absolutely sexy against your skin tone.

    And I feel your sadness about not being able to bring another furball home. My sister and her fiance adopted an English bulldog about five months ago. She stayed with us until my sister made the move to L.A. In those five months I grew super attached. Now that she's gone I'm itching to get another play mate for my doxie. But that's life; when the time is right, right?

  22. Dang girl! Lookin good! I love this dress on you, the fit is perfect and your accessories really make it special, especially that awesome necklace!
    That's sad that you decided you couldn't get another dog. We REALLY want a dog right now but we both work full time so we couldn't give it the attention it needs :(
    How come your wedding ring is hurting you?! That sucks that you can't wear it.

  32. Your outfit is great! I love F21. I'm actually thinking about going there today lol. I'm sorry you didn't get a dog, but I admire your decision! So many people wind up getting pets when they really don't have the time to care for them and it's sad for the animal :(
