oscar the german shepherd

there are lots of summer shenanigans going on in the djalali house this week. if it’s friday, then it’s time for oscar to make an appearance. plus, we’re whipping up a watermelon margarita that’s perfect for a hot summer night. a mexican shrimp cobb salad is on the menu too. 

and you didn’t think we’d forget national stripe day? oscar has a spiffy striped bandana, and i slipped into a striped boyfriend shirt from J.Crew. it looks adorable with shorts, blue jeans, or skirts. today, i’m wearing a pair of classic white scalloped shorts from Talbots.
