Florals & Frenchies

25th August 2014

Today I’m proving that sometimes the best accesories are semi-colorblocked, covered in fur, have four legs (despite their desire to use them) and come when you call them… well sometimes. Of course I am talking about the best/worst French Bulldog around… Waffles!

Is there a French Bulldog out there cuter than Waffles? Of course not … and no, I’m not biased at all ;). I do have an unhealthy obsession with my french bulldog, comparable only to my extreme love of shoes and mint chocolate chip ice cream (okay, I love Waffles way more than either of those) so are we surprised that I have started to wear outfits that he compliments well too? Well today’s looks is no exception.
I gushed about my love affair with this ted baker floral frock earlier this month, but my fondness is still alive and kicking. I thought I would celebrate the last few days of summer by wearing it with an off the shoulder crop top, bright accessories, bow pumps & the most darling doggie in the West Village.
A good floral skirt is a must have for every wardrobe! I love that mine has black undertones to make it wearable all year around. With pastel/spring colors having a moment this fall (gasp) I highly suggest investing in something floral to pair with some of your fall staples and new trendsl. Try a skirt like mine (I share similar options below) with a snug sweater and contrasting belt, black tights and booties, a blouse and blazer or a statement necklace and a turtleneck! I’m going to try mine with leopard booties and a black coat and again with a pattered sweater and a leather jacket!
One of my favorite parts of this outfit (and these pictures) is the super cute illustration that the fabulous Sandy M put together of me & waffie, I’m head over heels obsessed (wheres the hands up “hallelujah” emoji when you need it).  Would it be totally creepy if I blew it up and put it on my wall? I’m not sure Paris would like it, but come on!!! it’s just that cute it needs to be framed!
