tee + tweed

I’m combining two of my loves today — monochromatic looks + french bulldogs. As of late, my black and white pieces have been in heavy rotation. (Evidenced here, here, & here.) I’m assuming the gray skies have had something to do with my constant reaching for a neutral color palette, but hey, at least black & white is on trend this season!

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I frequently post about my run-ins with frenchies all over the city. I am dying to get a French Bulldog. DY. ING. I mean, I even have a Pinterest board of the little guys. (Sssh! Don’t tell Daisy!) But considering I barely have time to take care of myself in New York, it would be insanely selfish to get a dog right now. Believe me, if I had time for a puppy, Daisy would already be a Big Apple B*tch. 😉

Until life slows down (is that even a thing?!), I’ll be getting my frenchie fixation through cheeky tees!

    I love the mix of the tshirt with the leather skirt and girly tweed jacket! I would love a dog also, but my life is WAY too busy…so I just visit my sister’s dog on the weekends 😉

    Adorable. Who can hate on a sweet smushy-faced puppy? I love how you paired tweed with a tougher skirt.

    What an adorable tee! Like you, I’m dying to get a dog, but right now between living in NYC and my insane work schedule, it just isn’t practical. I wouldn’t be able to take care of one!

    In addition, you will also have access to the features of
    the product, info about the turbine, and other relevant
    information as well as cheap paint gun deals. Extra colors make your project more expensive (but I like color and wanted to experiment:
    ), however,. If you are about to spray paint a wood or metal wall, always
    have it primed first or apply a primer, so to speak.
