Happy 4th of July! Today is all about yummy BBQ, fireworks, and spending time with family and friends. While I normally go for a blatantly themed outfit, I decided to do something more subtle this year. This Darcy dress from Unique Vintage was the perfect choice for my holiday festivities!

The Darcy dress is a light but structured swing dress. It features a circle skirt with large pockets, a back zip, and adjustable and removable straps. I really loved the idea of wearing this strapless, but I opted for the straps today. The print is really vibrant and you can easily add in lots of colors with a cute cropped cardigan or a statement necklace. This dress also comes in a floral print and I'm hoping there are other cute versions in the future!
Well, we added another (maybe temporary) member to the family on Saturday. Lucy, a senior golden retriever, was dumped off at a boarding facility with three of her friends. All of them are ten years or older and wouldn't have a chance in the shelter. Unfortunately, many people look over older dogs. It kills me because I find that older dogs are such a perfect addition to any family. They're usually trained, well mannered, and appreciate their new homes. Dawg Squad, the organization where we found two of our chihuahuas, are fostering all of these poor seniors. And guess who stepped up to foster Lucy? This will be our first fostering experience, as well as our first larger dog. She's doing great so far, we will see if her future home will be with another loving family or with us for good. I'll keep you posted!
