laurren 's Thoughts:

I recently wore this outfit, which I based around my desire to wear this DIY leopard scarf, to Dog Day, a yearly event held in Nashville, TN.

Back story:

I relentlessly began begging my parents for a puppy during my freshman year of high school. While they would have loved a family dog, we hadn’t had the best luck with animals in the past due to a coyote problem and couldn’t stand the thought of getting attached to another animal only to have it one day disappear. To pacify my need for a furry companion, I told myself I’d get a dog upon college graduation, but I’ve been out of school for a little over three years now and have yet to live in a space large enough to take on an energetic puppy. Luckily, my boyfriend is just as dog-obsessed as I am, and we do what we can to get our fix. Most recently, we attended Dog Day (an annual event hosted by the Nashville Humane Association) to support our nephew dog (yes, I said nephew dog), Franklin, who was participating in the Cutest Dog Over 40lbs contest. Although Franklin didn’t win (he is a beautiful Boxer/Italian Mastiff mix), he’s certainly a winner in our eyes and went home with lots of treats to celebrate his big day!
