Happy National Pet Day! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than a fashion post featuring one of my adorable norfolk terriers. Max is pleased to show you my latest striped fit & flare dress with a tote bag large enough to carry him! Plus, let’s look at some adorable finds for your furry friend.
Do you have a beloved pet? How are you celebrating National Pet Day? I can think of many ways to treat your special companion to a few treats. Did you know that Nordstrom has some specialty items for pets? I’m linking you to some of my favorites below. And don’t forget my favorite online ordering trick I detailed for you in this blog post. Click here to refresh your memory. Here’s another fashion trick I use. If I need a style refresh and want to know what’s on trend, I simply click the Nordstrom ‘Trend’ tab. It helps me get out of my fashion rut and inspires me to try new things.
Now let’s talk about this striped dress that I absolutely love. It’s one of many fit & flare dresses I own from Eliza J. They make the most stylish and flattering dresses cut beautifully to accent a woman’s body. The designer also comes in petite and plus sizes and I find that all of their items fit me true to size. I love how this dress comes with a belt, has an exposed zipper and the most interesting back detail. I found many striped dresses that I really like and I have linked them for you below. If you are wondering how to handle the bra issue that you might encounter with a dress like this, I am wearing these. They are the easiest way to “go braless” without compromising shape and form. If you prefer a strapless bra, this one is my favorite and I wear it a lot. If you ever have a questions about any type of bra, I find the ladies in the Nordstrom lingerie department so helpful.
This Tory Buch tote is the perfect size! No, I don’t normally carry my dog in a tote bag. But we thought it was a fun accent to today’s post. Max didn’t know what was going on. The tote comes in 5 colors and I like to add a pop of color with a scarf. You can do this with any scarf you have. I find that the large square ones work best to tie a large bow like I did.
In case you are wondering where Sparky was on this shoot day, he was taking the day off. xoxo – Tanya
