Dog Days of Summer

June 25, 2014
Taking the dogs to the beach requires a comfy, hearty outfit.

Who could blame a gal for giving up and wearing sweats? 

But I tried to do a bit better … 

This weekend, I headed out dressed in distressed skinnies with an open weave black sweater over a white tank. 

 (Click HERE for the same sweater with a dressier look.)

Flip flops and a tote are beach musts!

This pic is my dorky attempt to show off all my jewelry at once!  Sand dollar necklace, seahorse earrings (see here), and an arm party of boho beachy bracelets.

Here’s the outfit in action at Rio del Mar beach in Aptos, California. 

Lucky is also in action, digging his way to China, I guess …

Cute dogs are the best accessories!  

A handsome hubby doesn’t hurt either!

Here’s to the happy dog days of summertime!

What do you wear when you know you’re sure to get covered in doggy slobber and sand?!

      Thanks so much, Jennie! I love dressing up, but realistically I tend to wear casual outfits much more often! OXOX

    As normal the furry friends steal the show : )

    I want to live where you live.
