Stray Dog Freedom

Hello everyone! I'm so happy that the weekend is completely over! I know that sounds strange, but I always work the weekends and usually during the week I have my free days. Plus, on top of it, I was really sick all weekend, so sick I called out of work for the first time. (and I have been there 3 years!) Thankfully I feel a lot better now and I don't work again till Saturday, so I have lots of time to spend and relax with Brian!

Today we went on a long walk on a trail called Hyper Humis with my dog Slinky and it is amazingly gorgeous. It's a trail that is lined with all different beautiful wild flowers and even opens up to a land bridge! It was truly incredible to be walking with water on both sides of me! I was also very excited because I received both a new purse and dress yesterday in the mail! Brian was sweet enough to buy me this dress from Ruche, and I used an awesome 15% discount on this purse from Spotted Moth (which is absolutely lovely in person!)

This post is really image heavy (sorry!). But today it was too nice out and so many pictures came out awesome.

Dress- Ruche ; Tights- Kohls ; Shoes- Urban Outfitters ; Purse- Spotted Moth.

This is my little angel faced puppy, Slinky. Well - he's not really a puppy, he's actually 12 and a 1/2 years old! But he is still the most energetic dog. He was loving this long walk, I rarely take him out places like this so it was a special treat!

This is the amazing land bridge (with my two favorite boys!). I mean we have all been on land with water between but this strip of land was so small and the shore came right up to the grass line. It was beautiful. Slinky enjoyed splashing in the water and exploring all over.

It really was a fun time. Brian and I need to find more awesome secluded places like this to take long walks with our dogs! After this we went to a place called Everything Homemade where they have the most amazing cannolis! I obviously got one of those and a delicious strawberry smoothie, and we sat at a cute picnic table with Slinky while multiple families and little kids ran up to give the 'weiner dog' a visit. Hah. It's so funny how popular Slinky is when I bring him out places, I guess it's because he's so unique looking with his long body and his cute puppy face. I have just seen him everyday since I was 9 so sometimes I forget what an adorable little dog he really is.

Well now I am off to spend more much needed time with my Brian! Have a wonderful day everyone!

  6. i love these photos! your dress and those tights look amazing together, your whole outfit is amazing! and your hair is perfection.

    and in reply to your comment: i love online shopping too - expecting the package and then getting it in the mail makes new clothes all the more exciting, its too addictive :)


  7. Ah yes yes. I love how clothes are so different when you receive them from how they look on the computer, it makes them even more special.

  8. You look awesome! That dress is amazing! Glad you are feeling better...cannot believe this is the first time you called in!

    And your puppy really looks like a puppy...not like he's 12.5! He's aging well.

    Oh, and I didn't see a link to email you, so I was wondering if you'd shoot me an e-mail upsideofwonder@gmail.com I have to ask you if you would be interested in something (all good things, of course!)

  9. love your outfit here and it looks like you had a wonderful day exploring! :)

  10. You look so pretty in these photos, Caitlyn! The tights look so neat with that dress and the scenery is so picturesque. Your hair is awesome, I might add. The color!

    I really like this post! Have more fun exploring days!

  11. I really love your dress, its floral pattern is gorgeous! And I really love your dog! A friend of mine has a wire-haired dachshund, these little dachshunds are lovely guys :)
    The photos look like you had a really nice day. It must be wonderful to go for long walks with boyfriend and dog in the nature. I wish I had a dog...well, or a boyfriend who wants to spend more time outside of the livingroom haha ;)

  12. Looking at pictures is always fun and the location is so lovely

  13. I love this post, it is so fun and sweet. That dress is adorable, and perfect for a nice, outdoors stroll! It looks like a beautiful walk, I am glad you felt better enough to enjoy it! And cute puppy!-- I would call him a puppy too...I call my 12 year old cat my baby-kitty, so, I completely understand :]

  14. beautiful puppy! :)

  15. I think the tights and dress go surprisingly well. I'm going to also be brave and try it out soon!
