Gunner & Katherine + A Beautiful Heart Winner!

 
 
F21 striped sweater / J.Crew chino shorts / Bucco sandals
 
To say our sweet lab Gunner photo bombed my pictures this weekend would be an understatement. My husband, aka my photographer, has been gone gator hunting (yes, gator hunting) so I decided to try out the tripod. No luck there. Gunner loves to be everywhere I am and these photos are no exception! I've seen a lot of adorable pictures lately with bloggers and their pooches (Amy & Whitley), so I guess Gunner was just trying to get me to be more on trend :)
 
On a side note, the winner of A Beautiful Heat giveway is Morgan Liti! Congrats, Morgan! Email me!

Blog Swap with Ruffled Romance


Today the beautiful sisters of Ruffled Romance and I are blog swapping! Be sure to check out Ruffled Romance to see more from MacKenzie as well as posts from her gorgeous sister Molly!

 
 
 
 
(Dress: Urban Outfitters, Sweater: Brandy Melville, Shoes: Lucky Brand, Necklace: Brandy Melville, Earrings: Urban Outfitters, Watch: Betsey Johnson) 

Hey Minted Glam readers!
 
My name is MacKenzie and I blog over at Ruffled Romance with my sister, Molly. On our blog we cover mostly fashion with a little bit of wedding/event planning since my sister is a bride-to-be. We both have extremely different styles so make sure and check out our blog so you can see her amazing taste as well. Molly is much more sophisticated glam while my styles leans more towards edgy bohemian.
 
I live in Nashville and am a musician/singer/songwriter. One of my absolute favorite things to do is to spend time at my local coffee shop and write songs. Some of my best inspiration can be found at places like these. I love being around artistic people and I just think the local flavor  provides for the best environment for people watching and observing. Here is an outfit that I would definitely sport for times like these. It is casual yet extremely comfortable with this big slouchy sweater and perfect to wear on those first few days of fall.
Thanks so much to Katherine for having me on her blog today and be sure to check out Ruffled Romance so you can see Katherine's post as well as posts from my sister!

And here's a sneak peek of what i'm wearing over at their blog :)

A Little Love

 

 
 
Old Navy Heart sweater (in stores) / H&M white blouse / Wit & Wisdom mint jeans / Old Navy leopard print flats / Michael Kors handbag / Ray Ban sunnies / c/o A Beautiful Heart gold bracelet / Chloe + Isabel spike bracelets / Michael Kors watch
 
It has been feeling a little more like fall these past few days in South Carolina & I couldn't be more excited to finally feel that my exessive sweater wearing has become more appropriate! It is such a refreshing change to walk outside feeling a crisp breeze in the morning as opposed to the sticky humidty that we typically have all summer long. This heart sweater is another one of my favorite more affordable versions of a style that has been popular this season. Old Navy has really been offering some great options lately!
