Floral Sundresses

Dress (also here)// Crossbody
 Hermes Sandals (similar)// Lip Color (in berry)// Earrings

Every time I think about floral prints, I can't help but think of the quote from The Devil Wears Prada- 'Florals for spring, groundbreaking'! So no, a floral sundress is nothing groundbreaking but I have noticed my love of floral prints has grown lately! 

I'm thinking it could be nostalgic as I'm sure many of you 90's babies can relate to all of the Laura Ashley you wore growing up! I thought I'd round up some other floral print sundress favorites. I don't know about you, but it's been SO hot here that all I can bring myself to dress in is a flowy dress! I love love love this one which is on sale- so special!

Popular Items From the Past Month

I love checking analytics and I do it often but I haven't done a post sharing some of the top items. So today I am sharing 10 of the most popular things. 

Navy Cashmere Cardigan// Love this navy cardigan SO much. I snagged it on major sale (also comes in beige) and it's been the perfect layer for cooler nights. The quality is incredible. 

Denim Jeggings// I did a whole blog post on how much I love these white jeans!
Spode Pasta Dishes// These are the dishes that my fiancĂ© and I use most when it is just the two of us. They are called 'pasta dishes' and are basically a hybrid between a bowl and a plate. They are perfect for basically anything but we especially love them for big salads! They're also dishwasher safe. I'm linking to them where it is the best price I have ever seen online for a set of 4! 
Striped Boatneck// This is such a great top for the price. The cotton is super thick and reminds me a lot of a Saint James boatneck tee. It runs a little big, which I don't mind, but I did size down from a S to XS. 

Custom Pet Koozies// This is something I don't own but shared in a father's day guide and think they are SO cute. You can get a pet printed onto koozies- so so fun! 
Pajama Set// These pajamas are under $30 and 100% cotton. They come in 28 different prints/patterns. Yes, 28!!! These are really nice for the price and are cut very modestly. The shorts are longer and the shirt buttons up pretty high. I sized up in case they shrink in the dryer which I am glad I did because they did shrink a bit! 
Sweater Tank// This is one of my favorite things of the summer. It's so casual and easy to wear but also cute and timeless. It runs a little big so I would suggest sizing down one size. 
Linen Blend Shorts// I have shared these shorts a ton. They're like a step up from wearing pajama shorts or athletic shorts. They are just as comfortable but look a little more put together. These run big so size down! 

Grande Lash Serum// I love this lash serum. I wrote an entire blog post about it

White Linen Dress// I just re-wore this white linen dress over the weekend. It's just a really classic white summer dress and so easy to wear, especially when the temps are so high! It runs true to size!

Henry Pupdate!

I haven't done a pupdate in quite some time but I think that's in part because there's not a ton new in Henry world- he is still the very best and sweetest and brings joy to my life daily! In December, I will have had Henry for 3 years which is pretty crazy. From what we think, that would make him around 5 years old (in December 2020) because we think he was right around 2 (on the younger end of 2) when I got him back in 2017. Time flies!!

I'm sure many people who have dogs can relate to this but Henry has absolutely THRIVED with so much staying at home. So much attention, so many walks! It made me beyond happy to see him SO happy. He is still thriving because we aren't traveling or leaving him home much at all. I will say since it has gotten so hot here, he is getting fewer longer walks, but all-in-all, he loves having so much time with us!

New House
We have been in the house for a little over a year now and I've mentioned this a few times before but he's definitely a suburban boy, haha!! I knew this from the getgo, though. Australian cattle dogs, as a breed are known to love open spaces (they are herding/farming dogs). I always felt a little bit guilty for having energetic Henry in my small apartment so I am just so happy to see him enjoy more space to run around even while inside. I love that he is so used to the house now and used to all of our walking routes, neighborhood dogs, and sweet neighbors. 

Thunder + Fireworks
This was kind of new for me to see Henry so afraid of thunder and fireworks. Our dog Mac was always terrified but Henry never seemed to mind. However, I realized that in my apartment you couldn't really hear the thunder or fireworks much. Living in a house, you can definitely hear both thunder and fireworks and poor Henry shakes and hides under the bed!

Dog Friends
Henry is iffy with other dogs sometimes. I would say he likes most dogs, but there are times when he does not. We know that so we work on it, always. One of the things I am thankful for is that Henry has made friends with our neighbor's sweet little pup, Mina. The two of them get along so well and it's nice we can go on walks together. He has also been having a lot of fun playing with our family friend's dog, Wesley. Our family friends live 5 minutes from us and have a HUGE yard and the two of them go out and run laps around each other and it is adorable. Henry does this with my cousin's pup, Stuart, too! 

In that same vein, my parents are starting to think about getting a new pup and I couldn't be more excited!! They have been looking to rescue an Australian Cattle dog so my fingers are crossed for them! 

Henry's Food
One of the things we did in the past year is that we switched Henry's food. We were originally feeding him Canidae grain-free food. We read the articles about potential issues when feeding dogs grain-free food so I asked our vet and he said there is not enough information and research yet to be totally sure but he recommended for us to switch just to be on the safe side, so we did! 

Henry's Toys
If you have read any Henry posts, then you know he LOVES to destroy toys. He loves to play and especially loves to destroy stuffed toys. I don't even want to know how much money we have spent in the past 3 years on stuffed toys. We have slowed down buying him them and are always on the hunt for new things he might love that can't be destroyed in 5 minutes. For those who have dogs that are super chewers, we have found that Nylabones, Antlers, and toys like this, are best for him (and better for our wallets!!).

Every day I am so thankful for Henry. He truly brightens every single day and brings me so much joy. I love that so many of you DM me and let me know that Henry brightens your day when you spot him on instastories!!!
