The weather was absolutely gorgeous today, the first mild day we have had in weeks, so we decided to take a good long trip to the Halswell Quarry, my favourite place in Christchurch, and let the dogs have a nice long walk. It was a very muddy track as it has been raining so much recently, so the dogs went in clean and went out looking very dirty. They loved it of course.

I love glasses, and although I don't have to wear them, these ones are just for fun. I love clothes with a masculine feel to them, and this outfit is based around that feeling, with a wee bit of a preppy edge. This shirt feels amazing on, and I it can be worn so many different ways, and from Summer through to winter, so it is definitely a favourite of mine, and these shorts were just too cute to resist with the plaid pattern.
Glasses: From Andrea
Shirt: Thrifted
Vest: a gift from Mum
Shorts: Thrifted
Tights: Kmart
Shoes: Thrifted
Bag: Thrifted (only $2!!!)

I have been on the hunt for one of these bags for a long time, and this one is the perfect size and colour. It also has lovely patterned lining and millions of pockets, which always sucks me in!

We have so many photos of our two babies so I thought it was about time I posted a few of my favourite ones....... This was about a year and a bit ago when we just got Bob, and although it's hard to believe now as he is HUGE, when we adopted him, he was the same size as wee Toto.
I love this photo so much more than the one we were trying to take of Toto, with his wee little tongue poking out to say hi

It gets so cold here over winter and my wee baby has very fine fur, so we got him this jacket online, which he actually loves to wear (surprisingly!), and the fake fur collar keeps his wee ears warm! I get so many wierd looks when I take Toto for walks wearing this

Happy Bob

The shot before the tongue lick

Toto as a pup, he was like a mop he had so much fur, and we quickly learned he needed to be groomed regularly, as you can see.

My love of stripes feeds into Toto's wardrobe too, and I'm sure he loves them too. I love the matching hat, although it doesns't stay on for long xxxxxxxxxxx

I bought these shorts a wee while ago, but this is the first time I have worn them. I love plaid, and these shorts are great for casual weekend chic. And this top is one of my favourites as it is lovely and soft to wear, and I am always in the mood for blue and white stripes! This outfit has a fun feel of men's tailoring with just enough of a nautical theme to keep me happy. I love this Ralph Lauren backpack. I got a quite a while ago in an op shop, and the mix of the size, gorgeous navy colour and cute shiny material has made it a regular in my wardrobe. Backpack perfection!

It was such a lovely day, so we took the opportunity to walk Toto and Bob and take some photos in our yard. It was so nice to have a break from the incessant rain we having been having here. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
