Anytime I buy a jumpsuit or a dress, I ask myself if it can do double duty - i.e., can I wear something under this for a new look? Turtlenecks, striped tees, and lacy tops all look GREAT under dresses and jumpsuits, and the added layer can make the look more casual or work appropriate. This jumpsuit from Tobi.com is a little dressy and revealing for every day, but with a tee underneath it was the perfect outfit for afternoon patio'ing with Zoey the Pug. Who, was so dramatic about having to be in public, refused to walk back to the car. I had to carry that 25 lb lump all the way down the street...I have no idea where she gets all that diva from (I do. It's me).
True story: My outfit was inspired by a dog today.
I was watching a "fall fashion for dogs" segment on the news this morning (not kidding), and one of the pups was sporting a fly buffalo plaid look. Remembering a red plaid in the back of my closet, I popped it around my waist with my favorite Pug Tee from Fur & Collar. Yes, that's totally a plug for F&C by the way, but it's allowed because it's my husband's tee company (use coupon WOOF5 for 5% off and free shipping!). I wore the pug tee in honor of the dog that helped me get dressed today.
Also, we can file this under "Faking Fall" since this week in Arkansas has been ripe with high 80s and 90s. When attempting to stay cool but look fall, tie a flannel around your waist to pretend like you may throw it on at any minute when a chill hits the air. It's a 90's inspired trick (temp or decade, you decide!) anyone can pull off. If you're going for more of a Boy George look, throw on a felt hat as well. Fall!
It's official - I'm a crazy pug lady. I can't resist buying anything that has a pug on it. Thankfully, The Limited knows my plight and created this adorable sequin pug sweater. Most things with pugs on them are goofy looking, so I really appreciate that they made something with a cute roly-poly pug on it. They get me.
