Below Seventy

______This week, the temperatures in the Land of Alabama (that's our official state name, don't you know) finally dunked below seventy degrees. I even had goosebumps on my legs, and was very thankful to remember to shave. I usually don't bother as much in the winter because one, legs are usually covered and two, it's not like anybody's feeling up on me anyway. Except my dog when he rubs his food-ridden dog-beard across them, using them as something akin to a scratching post for his smelly face.

______But I love him.

______He's been a good snuggle buddy this winter. Every time he plops down, I plop down beside him like a suckerfish on a shark for warmth and cuddles. Except it's much less symbiotic and more like he's struggling for his release while I put him in a chokehold. A loving chokehold. Full of kisses, adoration, and death-grip squeezes.

______But he loves me.

You look gorgeous in these photos :) I love your shoes! They remind me of some that Miu Miu had a while back.

I have been so excited to have a dog that cuddles. Ethan is certainly a cuddler. Nakita, my husband's dog, not so much. I love this dress on you! Va Va Voom!

You and your shoes are really killing it! Those are so lovely- like Cinderella shoes (Not glass, but they remind me of her dress from the live-action Disney film).

Love the sparkle shoes, and awesome choker. I have a long-standing love for black chokers. Merry Christmas to you!

Awww I love dogs so much, I wish I had one.
But I can totally understand your relationship with your dog -- I would be the same, snuggling him up dangerously.

Also, Ali, you own such pretty clothes--I love that dress. And your shoes, like ALWAYS, are on point :)

Aw, I absolutely love dogs--I've never had one myself, but I always look forward to seeing them when I'm over at friends' homes. They have so much playful energy and they're so dedicated.

Absolutely loving the metallic dress and glamorous heels combo. Your lavender nail polish also complements the cool sparkle of those shoes.

Wishing you only the warmest and happiest of holidays, Ali!

Your outfit is so lovely! I am jealous of your weather! Your shoes are just so amazing and I love that the sparkly heel is a sensible height to wear more often!

You already know how I feel about this weather difference between us....so I'll refrain from what I would say...
*mentally sends all the slushy snow and 30 degree weather from Idaho to Alabama*

Another killer outfit Ali! DEM SHOES DO! Ugh, I love them. Not to mention that edgy jacket. <3 <3 <3
