Portions for Foxes

Bonus points to anyone who knows what my title is referencing!! Post in the comments for a prize (OK I should disclose the prize will be a virtual hug...or high five if you like your personal space)!

Title and invading personal space aside, how adorable is this dress? Look at the foxes! The prancing foxes! There are a few sleepy foxes too! I love it! I have to stop using exclamation points!

The colors of this Heart of Haute dress really caught my eye first. The bright and bold orange against the soft muted aqua work so well. I love the contrast. The cute little foxes didn't hurt either.

For as long as I've known him, Cody has wanted a pet fox. I think he's partly kidding, but they are ridiculously cute as pets. Have you seen the videos of people with pet foxes? They jump on the bed!

Anyway, now whenever I see this print, I think of Cody because of his pet fox fantasy and, hey, I'll take any opportunity to think/talk/gush about my man!

I love that this fall has been pretty mild. Living in New England, I just never know what to expect every year. It can be mild and pretty warm through November (last year on Christmas, it was near 50 degrees F and I didn't even need a coat outside!) or it can be a total terror (blizzard on Halloween, anyone?).

This year has been one of the milder ones, making it much easier to dress the way I prefer - cute dress, puffy petticoat, and a small jacket or sweater. DONE!

I'm hoping this year remains milder. After last year's Snowmageddon, a milder winter would be such a prize for us. I'm a snow lover and winter is my favorite season, but even I was getting sick of the snow last year. I'm talking, standing-in-the-driveway-in-tears sick of the snow.

What are your thoughts on the fall weather? Is it mild where you are? Or has it gotten cold and wintry yet? Do you enjoy the chill or are you getting grouchier and grouchier by the day?

Well, if you're grouchy, just get yourself a dress covered in prancing foxes. It'll cheer you up in no time, I promise!

Pssssst! In case you're curious, the title of this post is a Rilo Kiley song and it's a good one!


  1. There's blood in my mouth because i've been biting my tongue all week.
    I keep on talking trash but I never say anything ;)

    ps. you're adorable.

    1. YES! Such a good song and album!

      Thanks for reading, your kind comments, and for playing along! =)

  2. Baby you're bad neeeewwwwssss! Now it's stuck in my head. :p
    Looking super cute!

    1. I don't blame youuuuu - haha thanks for playing along! Thanks!! =D

  3. Loveeee that song so much!! I actually discovered it a couple of months ago! So damn catchy.
    Loveee that dress on you! The print is adorable, and I'm obsessed with foxes! :) They are the cutest.

  4. This dress is so cute!!! You look so lovely! x

  5. That dress is absolutely adorable and looks great on you!

  6. Soooo cute!!! Heart of Haute is always so amazing! I'm glad you can wear lighter clothes as the winter is mild. It's surprising how mild it is here in Toronto, it's usually getting near unbearable temperatures but its definitely been light-coat weather so far, and I think it's supposed to be like that all year! I guess New England isn't so far so I hope we can both enjoy that!

  7. You are sooo cute and so is the dress. And I love the contrast between the dress and the petticoat - they go perfectly together.
    I like winter to be cold, and it's surprisingly warm this year, so I'm unhappy about that. I think winter needs a lot of snow, but that's probably because I grew up with it being like that.
    Much love,

  8. We're not really in light dress weather over here anymore... I tend not to mind when Christmas is coming, but deeply resent it when the festivities are over and there's no need for the cosy fire weather anymore! I like the little jacket - that would go with everything! x

  9. So adorable! I always love a good print, and this one's even better since it has cute foxes! Plus, the colors are bright and happy. You look great!

    I have officially put this one on my wish list :) hehe.
