Autumn Sweaters

Sweater: If It Were Me, TJMaxx, $18 // Dress: Gift // Scarf: Courtesy of Shop Ruche // Shoes: Abaete for Payless

Awhile back, I discovered that a rather long floral skirt of mine made a pretty little dress. I only wore it a couple of times during the warmer months, so I decided to remix it for fall by adding a cozy sweater, tights, ankle boots and a scarf. This look felt light, airy and playful while still being appropriate for the season.

I wasn't the only one cuddling up in a soft sweater. Yes, I'm already one of THOSE dog-owners. To give myself a little credit, he does shiver every time I take him outside. And, you have to admit, he looks pretty handsome. I think Igby has a fashionable future ahead of him.

It's just, he's so small! He will get cold easily. You had to put a sweater on him!

HEHEHHE He's sooooo cute! Our only rule when we got a dog was that he wasn't allowed to wear clothes - husband's rule, not mine. It didn't last very long. The best is a little Penn State sweatshirt with a hood and pouch pocket. So cute!

Igby is ADORABLE!!! I love the sweater on him, too cute! Oh, and don't worry because my husband and I are THOSE dog owners as well, but our little westie/russel mix shivers too. He has two sweaters, and we are taking him to Howl-O-Ween, so he even has a fleece turtle costume.

your shoes are as cute as your dog? Did you add the embellishment to the booties, or is that how they come? Are they new, or from a past season of Abaete at Payless?

WILDasaMINK said...

oops! I apologize, that was not supposed to be a "?" after the word "dog"....I meant it to be an exclamation point!!!!!!!
Let me rephrase it:
"Your shoes are as cute as your dog!"
There we go, much better.

I love your wee dog sweater! Where did you get it? We have two small devon rex cats that also feel the cold (especially in the cooler climes of the antipodes). Love your stuff, keep it up!
