Mamma Mia

My cat does not enjoy being a model... nope, not at all. This was the only photo I could get of the little dude where he doesn't have an "I hate you" glare on his face (possibly because he's not looking at the camera and is instead plotting his escape/revenge). I mean, I get that in the fashion world people expect a certain level of attitude but Binx really took it to a new level. 

....and yes. I am the crazy cat lady that lives down the street from you. Actually, scratch that, it's not me it's my parents that are the crazy animal people. My house is void of any pets (a sad, sad fact) so to get my little doses of cuddling/ terrorizing of pets I have to trek out to my parents acreage...which is only a 15 min car ride (you can get anywhere in my town in under 15 min. Fact.) so this happens quite often. 

So that's mostly what my morning consisted of; snuggling cats, running around with the dogs, and cranking my parents music (hence the Mamma Mia title! I swear they only listen to ABBA, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac and the Bee Gees!). Not a bad way to start the day! 

Dress: FCUK
Tank: Joe
Belt: Thrifted
Shoes: Aldo
Leaf Earrings: ?
Huge Silver Ring: Suzy Shier

This is a cute little sundress I picked up last year from an FCUK sample sale for dirt cheap, it has the cutest patch pockets on the front and a halter top. It seemed a little too beachy for a day with intermittent rain so I pulled a tank over and belted it. I'm also in the habit of wearing my strappy gold flats now, I swear they go with everything! I love heels and all but sometimes you just want to be able to run. 
Lovely: How dogs get SO EXCITED!!!! to see you, even if you've only been gone 5 min. Is there any better ego boost (other than blogging, of course!)?

This little ball of excitement is Rupert, not the brightest dog in the World but definitely one of the sweetest! He's my partner in crime when I go biking in the Hills and for this reason I get extra kisses from him when I see him!


  1. Aww cute cat & dog! :) I love the dress - the print is just wonderful! xx

  2. beautiful! i love it!
    i'm following!

  3. I love these photographs, they are so happy! That dress is great! And it's never a bad thing to have that one pair of sandals/shoes that make everything awesome.

  4. Very pretty outfit, I like the print of the skirt.

    My dog doesn't like getting her picture taken either. If she sees someone point a camera at her, she will turn her head so you can't see her face. It's really funny.


  5. gorgeous dress/skirt! :D i adore your photos with your dog!!! lovely! :D

  10. Your parents acreage is beautiful Louise and these shots are amazing. Just the sight of your belt makes me more and more envious of your thrifting abilities. When are you taking me again? Wearing the white tank over the dress was genius. You make it look so easy to wear pieces a million different ways. I guess that's why you're a stylist! As for Binx...well I think he's a fan of his left side. What a showboat!!! xx

  11. I love the pet pictures. That pattern is ridiculously awesome by the way!

  12. I would totally mug you for that dress. Amazing.

  13. I love the Pictures, your sweet outfit and your great pets. Really lovely place you live :) Love it!

  14. Aww, playing with your pets sounds like the perfect way to any day. I love the way you made your dress into a skirt and top by layering. Really cute!

  19. For some reason, these photos actually DO remind me of Mama Mia! Hmm...

    And I think that the crazy cat lady is always the BEST. My sister's allergic, so maybe I'm longing for some cat companion? Hmm. Maybe not... But still!
