It has been a busy week around here. 

Do I say that every week? Probably.  But it's true! Life moves fast with two jobs, two dogs, one baby and one husband. We are always on the go. We are also heading out of town this weekend so that made what is already a busy life even busier. I need a real break. Everyone else ready for it too? All right let's get to it and a little fashion at the end

My pup, Riggsy man. Our first baby turned 8 years old this week. I cannot believe he is 8 years old. We got him right before we got married and he has been with us from the start. He traveled and lived in Chicago with us, went to cabins with us moved to our first home with us. He greeted Reese when she came home and gives her kisses. He can be a real pain sometimes but he is a great dog and we love him so much. This is a picture from probably the first few weeks we had him. He is much bigger than this now ;)

Speaking of birthdays, Reese turned four months old on Wednesday. It's crazy how big she has gotten. We had her 4 month appointment and she is 14lbs 12oz and 26 inches long. Growing like a weed and staying healthy. She is such a good baby. I was telling D the other day that old saying "God only gives you what you can handle" and he must have looked at us and said "you can't handle much, you're welcome" to give us an easy baby. I love that she is getting big but really want her to stay little like this. 

We cleaned on Wednesday because we are going out of town and my sister and brother-in-law are staying here to watch the pups. The house was a mess and it needed it anyway. After a long day of work and cleaning a glass of wine was needed. Thank goodness Reese sleeps so well so I had a few quiet moments before bed.

Still need a look for the Fourth? Check out my Wednesday post for a few great options.

Ok so Zara came into my life for real a few months ago. They put one in the Mall of America some time ago but I needed to wait for post-pregnancy to be able to fit into the clothes again. I saw this top and knew I had to have it. Problem was finding how to wear it. I couldn't figure it out and I tried so many times. I think I finally figured it out. I got this maxi skirt from an old Stitch Fix and I love it. It's super simple and flattering. It provides the best canvas to highlight this top. I tucked in the front to help highlight my waist line. It's a bit of a "business in the front, party in the back" type of look. From the front it's a crisp, white top, from the back it's all the drama. Because the shirt is a statment piece I paired it with this light necklace from BaubleBar and some simple sandals. Boom. Done.
