Aspen Guide / Puppy Pics

Did the "puppy pics" in the caption make you read this post? If so, I have no shame :) This may be old news, but a few weeks ago the fam and I went to Aspen for a nice relaxing weekend. Not to mention, our adorable little pup, Bear, was featured in a fashion show! I wanted to share some pics of this outfit I wore that I absolutely loved, plus a little guide on what to do in Aspen should you make a little trip that way!

See more of my outfit pics and Bear's fashion show look below:

Bear was entered into the 'Most Adorable' category, but unfortunately did not win (thing was rigged if you ask me, I mean look at that face!). He sported a toddler size 3 down jacket and a neck gator to keep himself nice and warm. Way to go, Bear, for being a good sport. 

We still had fun playing around Aspen anyway :)
