Go Time

(several weeks ago)
Tee: LA Made &  Sweater: RD Style via Hot Mama
Jeans:  Citizens of Humanity, thrifted via Clothes Mentor
Boots: Frye via Amazon,  Necklace: Francesca's

Just poppin' in to say "Hello".  This season is ridiculously busy for me as I'm sure it is for many of you.  I was hopeful that the cold and snow would hold off a while longer (or never come at all), but Minnesota got completely dumped on over the weekend.  It's pretty n' all, but I'm sore from a mere 15 minutes of shoveling and the driving conditions are preventing me from getting to where I need to go.  Speaking of going - I better since I promised Ollie a walk in the winter wonderland.  Peace out.

Coordinated



Shirt: Ralph Lauren - thrifted,  Sweater: Gap
Jeans:  James Jeans via Hot Mama,  Boots: Frye via Amazon

Ollie's fleece from Posh Pooch

Not so deep down, I'm a matchy-matchy girl.  It took me a long time to comprehend mixing neutrals, colors, and patterns.  Over time and with much studying of blogs and magazines, I learned how to coordinate instead of match.

This also applies to my living accessories.  I love it when Steve and I accidentally match coordinate.  Admittedly,  I sometimes force the issue for holidays and special occasions.  Thankfully, I have a guy who appreciates a good outfit almost as much as I do.

Ollie does not share our love of dress-up.  He completely shuts down when we put clothes on him.  It's really his only flaw.  (Ok, so his flatulence is a major issue...and he's a leash puller...and he's an attack kisser too...whatever, nobody is perfect.)  

No matter how much he hates it, I can't help but put him in a cute sweater when the occasion calls for it.  An occasion is any day I realize that my outfit goes with something in his closet.  Yes, my dog, who doesn't like clothes, has a closet (of sorts).  Go ahead, judge me.
