An old flame never dies series with blogger friend Bonnie #4

Hello, Fleurani readers!  My name is Bonnie and I blog over at Delusions of Grandeur. I was thrilled when Ani invited me to participate in her "An Old Flame Never Dies" series.  Not only is Ani one of my favorite bloggers - super sweet, very fashionable, and on top of it all from my country of birth - but I also happened to have come across a box of long-forgotten clothing in a recent move.

And the item I was most excited to be reunited with is this girl-walking-dog sweater.  I honestly don't remember where I got this - I know it was when I was living in Nashville about 10 years ago and the label says "Isadora Story for Arden B.", but most likely I picked it up at a thrift shop somewhere.  Its unclear origins aside, I fell right back in love with it and paired it with a mustard colored skirt and heart print shirt that I recently picked up at Forever 21.  

And the outfit just wouldn't be complete without a little dog, so Oscar, my supersized Yorkshire Terrier, had to make an appearance, too. 

Thank you for having me, Ani, and thank you all for reading!  Feel free to swing by my blog and say hi anytime. :)


Ok guys, so now after looking at this phenomenal pictures you can understand why Bonnie had to be part of my series. Not only has she been one of my favourite bloggers from the beginning because of her playful, chic and elegant style but also because of her super sweet and witty personality. Thank you so much to you and Oscar for making this pleasant appearance on my blog :-)

@Oscar: For beeing such a good boy auntie Ani has a treat waiting for you :-)
