Puppy Love







{Wearing: Kenneth Cole Reaction trench coat, vintage dress, scarf borrowed from my friend, 80%20 booties}

“The best style is the style you don’t notice.” Somerset Maugham

These photos are featuring my beautiful pup, Maxi! She is a pretty hyper and crazy dog, so I wasn’t sure how well she would do with taking photos, but she turned out to be quite the model! My dad started taking pictures and she looked at the camera in awe and started posing, no lie. I guess even dogs like getting their picture taken. You can kind of tell in the pictures that she has this look of bewilderment, staring right at the camera. She hasn’t gotten her “looking away pretending something interests you” look right yet!

For this outfit, I was inspired by two very stylish women, Audrey Hepburn and Emma Watson. Emma is known for her love of trench coats (or at least I think she loves trench coats, haha) considering she was the face of Burberry. She wears them so well, and Audrey wore pretty, classic dresses, which is why I chose this vintage dress. I went for a more “fall” look with the booties because I think they added interest and let’s face it, you can’t walk your dog in a muddy backyard in flats!

Also, you may have noticed the new header on this blog! I had wanted to update my header on here for a while, since it’s the first thing someone sees when they visit a blog. I put it off because I thought it would be difficult and I would need my sister to do it, but about a half hour ago I decided to go for it. It was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. Hope you like it!

P.S. If you like animals, check out this video of a cat jumping like 6 feet high! It’s pretty cute!

Love, Francesca

    I searched for the Everpure conditioner online but they don’t probably sell it in Estonia which is such a shame because I would totally love to try it. but anyway, I obviously adore dogs so I’m really glad to see yours. and yeah, dogs totally do pose in front of the camera. mine does it too! 😀
    you look lovely by the way and after seeing that trench and the way you have layered it over the dress I think I must take out my trenches and start layering soon 😛

    Well hello, now we’ve got an overdose of cute on your blog! Your dog only highlights your adorableness, Miss Francesca, and I love that you took pictures with her (and also that she complied and somewhat agreed to pose elegantly for some of these pictures… man, I know how hard it can be to get a dog to look at a camera! I still have yet to actually get one of my dog).

    I adore your trench coat. Very Emma Watson-y indeed! The little white stripe on your dress is a nice touch, too! <3

    Have an excellent week, my dear! 😀 😀

  16. September 19, 2013 / 10:26 pm

    I think you wear the trench just as well as emma, and I love the bit of pink with your scarf. Your pup is really adorable too, I think it’s so fun when our furry friends get in on our photo shoots!

    Oh my gosh you DO look like Emma Watson!! Too cute! Your scarf is absolutely perfect!
    Also, I just want to steal your dog and carry her in my pocket! She is SO FLUFFY!!!!

      Aww thanks Sara! She is really cuddly 🙂

    Ah, I totally melted at these photos. The leaves in the background are such a pretty touch. I am so in love with this demure, Parisienne look. Pink looks so good against the contrast of navy. And your pup is simply adorable!

    I really like that quote too. It made me stop and think a moment–these best style is natural, so you really don’t notice it!

    Your new header is so pretty! I love the little bows in the background. I read your past posts as well and that English assignment sounded so cool! I loved your answers.

    Have a great week, girl!

    P.S. I love the little changes in your bio too. I saw “idealistic” and I smiled. We’d so be best friends if we went to school together (:
