Small Girl, Big Ideas

Of Bagles & Bagels

This has been a hard decision for me, but I decided that I really wanted my blog to stop putting a focus on Teemo and that it really needed to make my basset hound mix ( and first dog ) shine. So today I am premiering my new blog title, Of Bagles & Bagels. Bagles are what basset hound and beagle mixes are called - get it? And that's what Raynor is! And bagels - well they are one of my favorite foods! Most of the content will stay the same, maybe less outfits and DIYs and more diary posts, but you know, we'll work it out. I also decided to go for a more girly layout. I notice a lot of girls really loving the Barbie pink colors lately, so I went with a very bright monochromatic color scheme. Pink. All of the time.

Today's outfit is a dress I have owned forever but am never really quite sure how to style without it being really annoying. I thought this outfit turned out alright - playing off the pink in Raynor's collar too - but how would you suggest wearing bright pink?

Really, Raynor is the star though here. Don't you LOVE her puppy cape? In all seriousness though, I do. Be ready for a little DIY later this month.

  1. I think you did great! I love this outfit. I always find it easiest to tone down super bright colors with neutral ones! It's always nice to have a bright pop of color in any outfit! I absolutely love that skirt!

  2. Also, I love the new name and the colors and everything. It's great that you are focusing on your other dog! Why can't you find a way to focus on both of them? Also, I've been loving pinks lately too, I have no idea why! I can't get enough of it. Oh, and I love Raynor's cape!!

  3. I am loving this skirt, such a gorgeous piece, the pattern is fantastic!! And the pink/coral shades look really perfect with it. Definitely pop against the black and white.

  10. It's a fun new name but don't you feel like you're always putting behind one of the two? I couldn't make that choice. Why not both? :p But yes, he does look very handsome in his cape! And I don't think the dress is too much or annoying! xo

    And I love the pink! You know, I used to really not care much about pink, but now I'm obsessed with it. Pink ALL the time! Pink everything! I adore your pink top, and your skirt is just so cute with all the little ruffly layers and such. You're like a cute little cupcake, Katherine! <33

  29. A puppy cape?! This is beyond amazing, I wish I could get my cat to wear a cape or any clothes really, I think deep down she would love it, but on the surface she is much too much of a diva to allow me to dress her. Also your outfit is smashing.

  30. WAY TO COURT CONTROVERSY!!!!

    Just kidding, obviously. Haha, obviously this April Fools post is absolutely perfect. Not to mention that I've never seen a dog look better in a cape. Aside from Super Buddies, of course: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71nu6Xjk5rL._SL1465_.jpg
