Puppy Steals the show (& #passion4fashion linkup!)

Shall we just gloss over the fact that i’m allll about the ripped jeans and blazers right now? Like thats all that i’m wearing, pretty much non-stop of late. Don’t get me wrong, the blazer varies and sometimes the jeans do too (although these Topshop ripped ones are my faves), like this new coraly-pinky-drapey one. Tis pretty no?  I actually wore this outfit last Saturday and this outfit saw me through a morning of shopping with the 12 year old step daughter, a 4 year old birthday party in a play gym, cooking dinner for the fam then out for impromptu cocktails with my friend. We  actually went out for hot chocolates but Starbucks and Costa had both closed so we headed over to Chiqutos where we ended up drinking Pina Coladas at the bar… impromptu cocktails are the best haha! So yes This outfit did me well for a wonderfully busy day. Granted if i knew i was going out for cocktails i may have swapped to some heels but heels-schmeels, I had a wonderful time anyway.

But enough about that, can we just pont out the elephant in the room, or the puppy in the photos rather? This little one is stuck to my side lately. It’s funny, i’ve always liked dogs, and considered myself a dog liking person.  But now i totally get it, she’s like having another child. She’s part of the family and i can’t imagine not having her.

For a while there were discussions of the possibility of another baby as a sibling for Neo, but i have to admit i’m totally smitten with the puppy.. no nappies, can be left alone for a few hours, she is ALWAYS pleased to see you and unlimited snuggles… its definitely puppy love.

With me, Salvatore (hubby), Neo, my two step children Mia and Talyn, a cat and a dog i would say we are pretty much packed to the rafters.

Would i have it any other way? No, although ask when i’m doing the washing and ironing i may answer differently.

    Loving your pretty outfit Rachel! 🙂 I've been wanting to get jeans like that but not sure if they'd look good on me.

    And your pup is super super adorable- I hope she'll make more appearances on the blog! I know what you mean about not being able to imagine your life without her. That's how I am with mine. They're the best.

    Aww your pup is so cute! 🙂

    I know what you mean about dogs being better than babies sometimes – lack of nappies is a bonus! Plus as we adopted our dog we didn't need to bother with toilet training – he had been trained already thankfully! 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!

    The puppy is so cute! I've never had a dog, only cats when I was a child, and now I'm allergic to all animals… But I can totally understand that pets are members of the family, and you can't imagine life without them. Even if they steal the show, like your puppy here…

    What a cute puppy! My cat is like my child, so I completely understand peoples love for animals, hence why I am studying Vet Medicine. Your outfit is so pretty! Great everyday look 🙂

    I am always a fun of yours. It is good to know you more about as a person! 😉 I don't have my own child so I am often surprised to see how much time and effort moms have to spend in a day. But you are always so polished and stylish. Love that blush blazer! I need to find more ripped jeans too! Lol !
