Hey ladies!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Things were hectic here with the new pup romping about.   Pet chaos is  the only from of chaos I enjoy, and I've always taken this as another sign that my heart belongs to the furry angels of the world. 

Back to style for a moment.  The look I'm sharing today is an example of my quick & simple go-to when there is no time to spend on my outfit.  I chose to spend my morning making sure my new puppy understands that we do not chase the kitty...we love and protect the kitty always because she is the princess:)
The formula for getting dressed when there is no time to fuss.  Striped top...skinny jeans.  Fabulous sunnies, a gold & crystal necklace & a  glamorous pair of shoes (preferable with a heel).

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Friday, my friends.
 The heat wave is finally subsiding way up here in RI, and truthfully, I'm hoping to delve into fall style I'm dreaming of boots & cozy sweaters!


A Rescue Story
I have some very exciting news to share.  This weekend, we are going to pick up another rescue puppy.  It's been almost a year since we adopted our handsome Australian Shepard named Bruschi.  Bruschi rescued us with his sweet soulful eyes & strong love.  I will spare you the details of his past (too sad) but I will say that I am in awe of his ability to trust and love humans after the way he was treated prior to his rescue by Big Fluffy Dogs.

Tomorrow we will welcome an adorable 8 month old black lab mix into our pet centered abode.  He will certainly have plenty of human love as well as furry sibling love.  In addition to Bruschi, We have a 9 year old yellow lab named Harmony, and a 7 year old rag doll cat named Jericho.

Here is our new little guy.  The rescue named him Oscar but since he hasn't had that name for long...I've decided to call him Nero (nero means black in Italian).  Nero comes to us by way of NELR (New England Lab Rescue).  I can not even put in to words how amazing the rescue experience is.   Absolutely incredible!

Now I just need to get hubby on board with a feline rescue mission!!!!


thanks for stopping by today & have a fabulous weekend!!
