1.) Renee C Mackin Floral Print Cut-Out Back Tank
I loved this top. Now that may hair is shorter, the cute cut out on the back is actually visible. The print is something I would not have normally picked out, but I really liked it when I put it on. The back is longer then the front.
Boyfriend said it looked like a "mom shirt". Needless to say I became paranoid and sent it back.
2) 41Hawthorn Montgomery Chevron Cross-Front Top
I am not a big fan of chevron print on anything. The chevrons didn't go up and down so I actually was okay with this top. The fit was perfect (and stretchy). It can easily be dressed up or down.
It is a really good transitional piece to go into fall with.
3) Pomelo Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan
I have been eyeballing this cardigan on Pinterest for a while now. So when I saw it was going to be in my fix, I was pretty pumped. I loved it! However, I would not recommend wearing it zipped.
I decided bright orange isn't practical for this time of year. I did tell my stylist to include it again in another fix, just in a darker color.
4) 19 Cooper Cathleen Split-Neck Tulip-Sleeve Blouse
This top just wasn't me. It fit great, but the style wouldn't work for my lifestyle.
5) Bay to Baubles Tazo Triangle Charm Lariat Necklace
I was uberly excited to get a necklace that was simple. I wore it in most of the photos above. It just dangled a little bit too long and wound up sitting inside my shirt.
So that's this months fix.
If you to try it yourself, here's my referral link!

Speaking of the pups...
On each side of the garage is a dachshund.
I did not put them there.
It was fate, let me tell ya.
God knows he needs to be a little blunt with me on where I should live..
I can almost squeal at the fact I have a front stoop.
Not only and I planning on decorating it for the fall,
but there is no long FedEx battles!!!!
My #1 pet peeve at my apartment.
Yes, it's a recycling bin.
But after almost 6 years of no recycling.
I am happy to finally be doing my part.
We honestly go through as much recycling as we do garbage..
Sad to think about how much I've put in the landfill over the years at my apartment.
There is an empty lot next to us....
...and across from us :)
The pups are still have a deck to sun on.
A fire pit!
We were so excited to have on the backyard.
We are talking near giddy..
Truth: We've only used it once.
I have this slight obsession with the super tall pine trees in rows.
My back yard has them.
I LOVE looking out my window and seeing this pines.
I cannot wait until winter when they are heavy with snow..
Yes, I just said I cannot wait until winter.

We survived the move to Minnesota! Thursday we spent all day loading and unloading the U-haul. We both foresee a moving company for our next move, maybe just for the furniture. I would love to say we followed though on our plans to go see fireworks the next day, but truth be told, we were exhausted. Instead, we watched the fireworks display out the window of an extra bedroom while sitting on nightstands. It worked for us!
Yesterday we finally got the lawn mowed! The pups were getting red bug bites on their bellies from the crazy long grass. So we bought a mower and took care of it. So far, no more nasty red marks!
The drawback of this house is the ticks! I've lost count of how many we've caught crawling on us or on our things. They make mosquitos look good!
Speaking of the pups. They are adjusting amazingly. Sully loves playing try-and-get-me around the island. We went from having neighbors on the other sides of the walls, to literally no next door neighbors. So he's had to bark at random things, like the ice maker..
I always know where Mike is since Sully loves being with him all the time. He literally sits and stares downstairs waiting for him to come in from the garage or up from the basement.
We kicked back last night enjoying the last night of our long weekend. Nothing beats stovetop popcorn! Perfect ending!
P.S. This stuff is like catnip for dogs. The doxies have even started eating the dirt after I fertilize my plants. Ridiculous!
How was your holiday weekend?

Oh and a last minute change of plans.
The boy rented a house large enough for me and the pups to move in
(its even got a fenced in back yard)
My lease isn't up until the fall,
but I decided I wanted to take advantage of having a yard during the summer months.
Sully wanted to make sure he didn't get missed in the packing..
A pup and his squeaky
The squeaky was packed, not worries..
Oh and Willa caught a fly in mid air and ate it.
That's was pretty big news for a while.
Then Sully disabled a fly and played with it for a while.
I'm well guarded from fly attacks..
Last but not least.
I chopped all my hair off.
Wasn't in my plans (or my stylists)
for it to be this short,
but I really don't mind it.
