Start of Fall

     Cool weather is coming to Utah and I'm freezing! Growing up in Arizona has ruined me - I can't handle the heat but I can't handle cold weather either. I really love Fall because the leaves turn their gorgeous colors and everything is pumpkin flavored. Autumn is so cozy and I love that you can snuggle up and drink a cup of hot cocoa with some marshmallows, and no one will judge your for not leaving the house all weekend. I'm also really excited to try out the fireplace in our new place, and curious to see how Ruger reacts to it.

     Fall and Winter fashion are by far my favorite and I feel like I put more effort into my own style the colder it gets. I tend to wear a lot of black, or different shades of grey, blue, or purple. Because it's still too warm to dress in several layers, I wore a summer white tank with a pretty lace detail that runs directly down the middle of the top. I put on this super cozy jacket over it with some dark jeans. I wore my favorite black booties that have a great traction outsole, so they will help me feel more comfortable walking on snow or ice in the upcoming months. 

     Ruger's bandana is actually one from Jessie James Decker's Kittenish Collection. I bought it for myself and once I realized I could never pull off a bandana as well as Jessie James, I put it on Ruger instead. The flannel pattern looks so adorable on him, but it is also made from a very soft and thick material that probably keeps his chest warm as he's running around in cooler temps. 

Shooting with a dog is pretty hard, they don't understand the concept of needing to stand still and pose. Here's some bloopers because Ruger has no idea what he's doing.

Sometimes you have to (literally) throw down whatever you have in your hands and stop your dog from chasing something. Don't worry, the purse was okay.

And sometimes there is a sweet moment between you and your dog, and you remember why you love them.
