You guys seemed to really love my post on our former foster kittens; Lucy & Nadia, so I’m excited to share our latest foster kittens; Evie, Kona, Lincoln, & Nokio today! We picked them up from S.A.F.E Animal Shelter in early August, when they were just five wks of age. They typically get brought back to the shelter & adopted out around twelve weeks of age, however Hurricane Irma changed those plans. I wrote about the destruction in my city caused by Irma here, it includes that S.A.F.E was completely flooded & had to temporarily close down. It was almost three months before they were able to re-open. My husband & I were part of an adoption event in which two of the kittens (Evie & Lincoln) were adopted at thirteen weeks of age. The other two (Kona & Nokio) were not adopted & ended up spending another two months with us. They just went back to S.A.F.E a week & a half ago. It was the longest we’ve EVER fostered an animal(s), so it was extra hard to say good-bye, but we know that’s the life of being foster parents & we know they will be super happy in their new homes!
There is no denying that velvet is one of the biggest trends of 2017 & it’s a trend I can definitely get behind! My love for velvet started back in 1998. I was 8-9 years old & aside from bellbottoms & platform sneakers, my favorite fashion pieces were velvet. There were five velvet pieces I’ll NEVER forget because they were my life; 01. Purple butterfly print velvet mid-length skirt, 02. Pink paisley print velvet mid-length skirt (same brand as the butterfly one, obv), 03. Red top with a leopard print velvet collar that I ALWAYS wore with my 04. Black velvet mini skirt (also worn w black velvet heels, of course. Yes I’m proud of that head to toe velvet look), & 05. Blue velvet tee w a huge black peace sign on it. I would wear some of those pieces today, the others were sooooo gaudy, but I loved them! For today’s blog post I’m sharing my favorite velvet pieces from this decade, more specifically from this season.
Shooting today’s blog outfit was no easy task! I received this Zara fall floral dress a couple of months ago as a gift from my Hubberkins. I loved it right away. He knows floral prints are my life & this dress is the perfect color palette to bring floral print into fall. I couldn’t wait to wear it & share it on my blog. Well…easier said than done!
As I sit down right now to type November’s wrap up, I’m experiencing the perfect way to describe November weather in Florida. I was absolutely freezing five minutes ago. Now that I have the heat on & a fleece blanket over my lap, I feel like I’m about to die of a heatstroke. Anywho, aside from never knowing what weather to dress for, & the time change, which I despise, November was a really great month. Allow me to share some highlights with you…
