Happy Mother's Day or Stylish Sundays

If this lateness keeps up, I'm going to have to change the name to Stylish Mondays.

This one is late though because I wanted to do a post of what I wore today, and since it was Mother's Day and I am a Mom, I just managed to squeeze them in after dinner out and before the ice cream cake at home. Yep I'm spoiled.

This is kinda picture heavy. I'd apologize, but really I felt amazing in this outfit and we got so many good pictures I was having a hard time narrowing it down.


 I wore the Black and White Olsenboye Skater Dress that I bought at JCP a few months ago. They seem to be rebranding themselves again, so I don't know if I'll be shopping there anymore, but I really love this dress. A Pink Wallace Cardigan from Madewell that I got on sale for $15 last Feburary, my Kate Spade Bow Belt that I bought just before Christmas which was also on sale for $50 instead of the normal $70 something, and Black HUE tights. Not Pictured are my Sam Edelman Calypso Flats in Black with a Black patent toe cap and gold studs.
 
 I know it's kinda amazing right? The only thing I wish I could have changed is I probably would have worn a pair of Chelsea Boots with them. It was cold today, plus I feel like they would have looked better with the tights. I blame Voussontbeauetbelle for that obsession right now. 
 For my face I just wore my everyday makeup but I applied it a bit differently using brushes for my concealer and foundation. I really want to get some Real Techniques Brushes for my foundation and concealer, but this time I used a random stippling brush and fluffy eyeshadow brush I had.
 My hair was a slight variation on Zoella's Messy Top Knot Tutorial. The only variation is that I pinned my bangs back. Even though I used Zoella's Tutorial, it really reminds me of LeighannSay's Pretty Dirty Princess Bun, which I adored, but could never get my hair to do. I'm in the process of looking for a new hair stylist and I haven't gotten my bangs cut for quit a while. They're kinda driving me crazy.

I bet you're wondering if I got anything for a Mother's Day Gift. Of course I did. You've already seen my gift though, a few times.

Bet you're wondering what that is? Well I actually got my Mother's Day Present a month ago and it was....
Howl.
 Yep, I had been wanting a dog for a very long time and since he and all his things were pretty expensive, we decided that he would be perfect as a present for my Mother's Day.  Of course I'm completely in love with him.
 He's teething right now as you could guess by the fact that he's 3 months old, and he's chewing his lead in the above picture. He's also pretty attached to sticks.
 See, he loves sticks. We're bell training him, and sometimes he'll go out, find a stick he loves and for whatever reason drop it on his way in. He's been known to go back and ring the bell, just so he can go out to get his stick he dropped.
Oh, look at that bokeh! I'm kinda completely in love with this picture of a random blossom off the tree I was standing next to. It's so springy.

 According to Howl it's time to go now. I guess I'd better quit rambling he's looking pretty insane.
