Black & Brown


Scarf (Marshalls); Sweater (The Limited); Leggins (Old Navy); Socks (Kohls); Boots (Nine West); Sunglasses (Kohls); Rex's jacket (Old Navy)

I usually don't dress like my dog - but since he pulls off black and brown so well, I thought I'd try it too :)  I used to stay away from this color combo since it used to be one of those "rules" similar to avoiding black and navy together (which is also fabulous by the way).  Plus I figured the two most boring colors would result in an equaling boring look -  but quite the opposite! Black and brown together actually works and looks quite sophisticated... so if it's a look you haven't tried before, go for it!

Such a chic dog-walking outfit! It's hard for me to dress like my doggy since he's a golden lab, but you know what...if I could I would! Love you two's colour coordination haha.

My dog and I end up coordinating all the time. It's what he gets for being comprised of three neutrals. He can't hog them all. He's lucky he's so cute.

I have always enjoyed having one of the large dog breeds and it wasn’t until my brother brought home a Beagle puppy from college that I had ever had any real contact with a little dog. It’s not that I don’t like little dogs, there are some really cute small dog breeds, and it’s just that I have grown so accustomed to having one of the large dog breeds that I can’t imagine having other type puff dog. Looking for large dog breeds for families Wondering what large dog breeds are good with kids or would be good for apartments Find out here A complete list of large dog breeds
