Puppy Love Project

With January almost out the door, I'm looking forward to what February holds. I know that studying and practicing for my Comps Exams is at the top of my to-do list, but I'm also looking forward to all the fun things that are in store for the month of love. February always feels like such a special time, love is in the air and candy hearts are in abundance (I know they're kind of chalky tasting, but I just love them - anyone else?). This will Scott and I's  sixth Valentine's together (WOW!), and I still feel so lucky that I get to call him my valentine.

Usually in February the mornings are pretty icy around here, and winter seems to try and hold onto every inch of the season that it can. Around the middle of the month some warms days start to make their presence, and we're reminded that spring is almost here! This year I'm hoping that it stays cool enough for me to continue to wear my cardigans, sweaters, and tights well through the month and into the next (dream big), because we know that once March hits Phoenix is going to be hot, hot! February is also an amazing month to give back to your community, which leads me to my next point....

Remember when I tweeted about a benefit that the Phoenix Style Collective would be co-hosting on February 7th? Well, I'm so excited to announce the Puppy Love Project - a shopping event benefitting the Arizona Humane Society! On Thursday, February 7th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the new Co+Hoots (1027 E. Washington) we will be celebrating the month of love by shopping (raffle + selection with some amazing prizes), munching on yummy treats, and making some fun d.i.y.'s, with all proceeds going to the Arizona Humane Society. We are so excited about this event, and hope that so many of you can make it out to Co+Hoots to celebrate such an amazing organization with us!

Scout is also very excited for the benefit and felt that he needed to be included in this post as well! He's growing up so fast (he's already 9 months old), and is getting SO big! It still feels just like yesterday that we brought him home (he was so tiny back then - remember these?), and now I can't imagine my life without him.

Outfit details:
Scarf: Levi's
Button-up: Levi's
Bracelets: Kate Spade
Jeans: Levi's
Moccasins: Minnetonka Moccasins

Ok, I'm going to finish up this cup of coffee and then I'm off to school! This afternoon I'm off to visit my grandma, get some reading done for class (and a paper too), and then tonight I am so excited to meet up with Sarah of Arrow and Apple for fun shoot out in the desert!

If you can make it to the benefit, please leave me a comment letting me know! I'm seriously so, so excited for this event, and love that it's going to benefiting a cause that is so close to my heart!

Have a great day, sweet friends!
