How to Use Your Dog as an Accessory

Top: Michael Stars  I can't find any online stores carrying this, but I went to Bloomingdales and they had plenty in store.
Hello everyone! A few days ago I went shopping and bought this great, lightweight top from Michael Stars.  I'm freakishly obsessed with it because I have been searching for something like this that is not obnoxiously fragile and - voila - it appeared!  So happy, so lucky, best day ever.

The fun doesn't stop there.  Oh no, no, no.  I walked my boyfriend's dog, Annie (remember her?).  And, boy - she is the best blogging accessory ever.

Not facing the camera, yet still looking cute.  She's better at posing than I am...that's not saying alot, though.
Dogs are adorable.  Unlike cats, you can walk them and pet them with being mauled. Combine dogs and fashion blogging and BAM - you are the most unique fashion blogger ever.  If you have a baby or a blogger boyfriend, you know how being part of this fashion elite feels.  Gone are the days of awkward and alone photos - you have a dog to pose with.

Well, at least I'm not alone...
In all seriousness, I went for an early evening walk with my boyfriend and decided to show everyone my casual style (plus a Westie).  In my opinion, you don't have to look like atlantic-pacific  all of the time in order to look good.  Of course, my style may have to do with my age - I'm not a twenty-something like most of you.  If I dressed like AP, I think it would add years to my age although I would love to have her closet.

Trying to look as insufferable as possible.
I hope everyone is having a good week.  The weekend is swiftly approaching which means going to Ikea and watching Curb Your Enthusiasm.  Yeah, living the life, I know.

  27. You are only 19!!!!! Your style is so mature. Even the shorts. I am a 15 year old blogger, so I understand exactly what you mean. We teenagers don't really dress like Blair or Kendi or Emily.
    I just started following. I love your blog so much. Follow me back if you like mine! It is nice to see another blogger under 20, though you are still older than I am.

  40. I must agree. dogs are the best and I utterly love mine though it would be quite difficult to take outfit shots with him since he is hyper active for most of the time :P
    anyway, you and your boyfriend's doggie look like a really sweet match and your casual look is also something I like. to be honest I don't read any of those famous fashion blogs because I enjoy more unique and casual looks. the latest trends are not my cup of tea most of the time :P
