November's Snows and Winter's Hotels

These photos are quite old, taken back in mid-November. It was our first major snow. I love these pictures, especially because my darling Ollie is so adorable in them. The pictures indoor were at a hotel we stayed at for a night. All of those were taken with my phone, as I forgot to bring my camera with me. I was rather impressed with how that one in the chair turned out, especially because I was balancing it up with a book and pen. This might be one of my favorite outfits ever. Super comfy which I needed for that day and I'm a sucker for that galaxy skirt. 

The pictures out in the snow were taken first thing in the morning, which explains the cool blue lighting. It was really too early for pictures, I think the sun had been up for twenty minutes-if that. But the hint of a pink sunrise in the background kind of make them magical.

I love my pets, that should be rather obvious to anyone who knows me. I don't think I'd ever survive without some by my side. Like humans I've always found it amazing how personalities differ with these creatures. Scared-y dogs and fearless cats. 

Something that has grabbed me of late was the death of my puppy-Ollie who is feature greatly in this blog and in these pictures. It's strange on some level I feel as if I should apologize for being so sad over his death, he was just a dog. But that's ridiculous. I've lived beside him for eleven years, his been a constant companion, a friend. He's sat with me as I've read, he's gone on great adventures with me, and he's been there every morning when I got home from work.  He was as real as any person I've known; and even if you've only read a few of my posts you should be able to recognize how much I loved him. So I shouldn't feel like I need to apologize for being heartbroken over losing my yellow puppy. 

I still have a couple outfits that I need to put up that has him parading beside me, it's a little strange, but then I'm so grateful that he was by my side so much that my camera caught many cute photos of him. That being said I've been having a hard time even editing them, which is one reason I've taken a little break from this outfit journal of mine. But now I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things. Also I think it's perfect to have a post about my puppy on Valentine's Day, last year he shared in my outfit as well. 
P.S. Here's a few adorable pictures of Ollie.

I took an unscheduled break from this little blog of mine. But I'm back and hopefully I'll start posting a little more regularly. It's been a little difficult to wander out in the winter for pictures as the warmth of the indoors is almost too enticing. But on this day I managed to ventured out to one of my favorite parks and was still be able to feel my fingers in the end.

This post is kind of a bridge into 2014, so the title and the pictures seem a good match. I'll admit that because of work I haven't been taking as many outfit photos as before, but taking January off helped me realize that I still do love documenting the outfits I manage to put together. So I'm hoping that I'll get back into the swing of things soon, if not I still have some old pictures to post until I get back to my tripod and camera. It's a new year, so here's to that.
