bully leopard

You guys. This might be one of my favorite outfits ever (EVER). Why have I never paired a favorite tee with a leopard print pencil skirt before??

This outfit struck the right balance of dressy and casual, fun and serious (like that line from Talladega Nights "I like to think of Jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt. It says I'm serious, but I like to party."), comfortable and not-so-comfortable. I'm already devising other graphic tees and pencil skirts to pair up together. Sadly, I think my sandals are goners until next summer. *sigh*

in the mens' section + sweater #16

This sweater brought my total number of sweaters to 31. It was the last addition. And the greatest. I mean, a bulldog with his tongue out, just like my boys. And the one on my sweater is wearing a bowler hat. Is that not terrific.

It came from the men’s section at Target, and without sounding weird, I feel like the men’s section of any store is the place to shop. This sweater is so warm compared to most of the ones I already own. I didn't have to wear 18 layers underneath it to stay warm, like I do with some of my current sweaters, which makes me look like a wrinkley bulldog anyways...

Mr. Picks Mondays: White Bulldog

Nothing super special here. Just a white graphic tee featuring a wrinkled sweetie that the Mr. picked out, and some jeans. I knew I'd be on-site this day, so pants were a must. As were close-toed shoes, which I ditched in favor of sandals as soon as I could :)

Edgy...with a side of Warm & Fuzzy





This is me trying out "edgy." I know it doesn't look like it, but I assure you, it is. 

If you look REALLY closely at the outfit on the left, my red shirt under the chambray has little bitty gold studs. They're in a polka dot pattern, but that is besides the point!

And, for my outfit on the right, I'm wearing coated denim, which is #2 on the edgy pants scale (#1 being leather pants, obvi). And nothing says grunge like black and white flannel, except for ripped acid wash jeans... 

However, I am obviously more interested in unicorns and rainbows, than in being edgy, as evidenced by my heart print scarf, and bulldog tee (below)...

Better luck next time!

This outfit is several weeks behind - it's what I wore Christmas Eve. I had to work (bummer, huh?), but we did get to go home early, so I was able to take outfit pictures outside during daylight! Woot woot! I figured if I had to work on Christmas Eve, I might as well wear something with a bow, something sparkly, and something red - it doesn't hurt that the item with the bow was in the form of my new bulldog tee. 

Christmas Eve started my 5 days in a row off. I'm going to be completely honest with you - it was aaaaamazing. I slept in, wore sweatpants, drank lots of coffee with Irish Cream, and spent lots of time with my favorite men & woman (husband, bulldog & bulldog). I had a huge list of things I wanted to get accomplished, but I hardly did any of them. Instead, I lounged, relaxed, soaked in the time with my sweetheart, and truly enjoyed my down time. We had no plans to go anywhere for Christmas, so the two of us stayed at home and laid low. Going back to work was TOUGH. OY. SO. TOUGH.

Now that Christmas is about three weeks behind us, do you think I'm the worst blogger ever? 
Or, are you thankful that I keep reminding you of the holidays & celebrating well into January?

We're having (belated) Christmas with both sets of parents this weekend - I'm a fan of drawing out the celebrating :)

Purple Pants, Polka Dots, and a(nother)...Bulldog Shirt?

Cali loves blog pics. but mostly shirts with her silhouette on them

I think the title of this post really says it all. The only thing I didn't mention up there is that these purple pants are my only pair of coated/waxed denim, and I wore black boots.

This bulldog shirt was another Black Friday find. I spotted it at J. CREW Factory weeks ago but didn't pull the trigger. But when I popped in on Black Friday Thanksgiving Night, only a few shirts were left, and only one in my size. 'Twas fate, my friends, 'twas fate. Oh, and isn't this polka dot cardigan fab? You know I luuuurve me some polka dots, so really, 'twas a no-brainer - and I'm a fan of those, especially when it comes to shopping. 

However, when I showed it to the Mr, he said it looked like something I already had. 
I asked to clarify:
"Something I already have? Or something I would wear?"
His response:
"Something you already have."

"Oh, honey, I sure don't have a black & white polka dot cardigan in my closet. 
However, this one will fit right in..."

Just Following the Trends, Y'all!

wearing my pups on my clothes. it's cool, right?

5 pointed crown - another ZTA symbol. told ya I sneak 'em in there

Does wearing a bulldog shirt make me look like an over-excited soccer mom? If so, too bad, so sad. 
I love reppin' my breed of pups - they're just so cute! 
And sweet! 
And wrinkly! 
And loud. 
They're very loud. Loud breathers, loud snorers, and loud going up the stairs. 
You would NOT believe how loud they are.
I have a voice memo recorded on my phone of both of them breathing, if you're interested ;)

I am digging the animal-on-the-shirt/sweater trend. I've seen a lot that I would love to take home and make part of my closet, but this is the only one I've been able to pull the trigger on. But that's ok, it's got a pretty special animal on it. 
Now, to find a shirt with TWO bulldogs on it - one that's mostly white with his tongue sticking out, 
and the other brown & white...

Bulldog Shirts are the Best Shirts

SO excited to finally have a bulldog shirt!

I FINALLY got a bulldog shirt! After months of looking, wishing & sighing, sending emails with links to my Mr., and asking friends to keep their eyes open for me, I found one! This is cause for celebration, my friends! I found it at a J.Crew Factory store when I went shopping in Wisconsin (can't find it online). I debated buying more than one so that when I wear the first one out, I'll have another one to wear, but then I thought "Show some restraint, woman!" and only came home with one.

Some people (my friends & family) think my obsession with bulldogs is weird. But I beg to differ. I love those little nuggets, and why not wear them on my shirt? It's a nod (albeit as subtle as a train wreck) to my affinity for bullies, and a wee bit funny, like "Hey, I've got a wrinkley dog on my shirt. Neato, huh?"

How is this different than wearing camo if you're a hunter, having cat items if you love the felines, or wearing dinosaurs/fish/birds/pineapples/the logo of your favorite team or band? I love my dogs, and I love wearing them on my shirt. Plus, they lend their wrinkled selves to being put on clothing/decor items (we have several...). So, I'll happily wear what I LOVE and if you ask me about my shirt, I'll tell you about my shirt & how I have 2 great pups. Cool? Cool.

Also also, my sandals are from Life Is Good circa 2006 from my sweetheart. I love the brand, and what they stand for, because yes, life IS good! Check them out, if you like to wear happy things :)

Happy Monday! Stay cool out there, we've been hit with another heat wave - slowly melting...
