The Perfect Gift So You Can Coordinate With Your Dog

Shopping

Is anyone else freaking out about gift shopping right about now? I know I am. I’ve gotten some fun things for people but I’m also feeling really far behind! One of my goals this year was to shop local or at least shop from non-big box stores but it’s been difficult to find the time. Plus, since I’m going out of town for a few days in the middle of this month I’m losing one entire weekend to shop!

Which is why I’m glad I learned that Yahoo! Style is putting together some AWESOME gift guides for basically everyone on my gift giving list. They’re doing one each day and each one has a different angle. Of course, I immediately gravitated toward the one for Dog Lovers.  Because clearly Chewie needs a gift for his first Christmas with us.

And what better thing to get him than this adorable collar?

I mean, really. We already know that I like to color coordinate with Chewie. So, a red and black buffalo plaid collar? How perfect would that be?

He could wear it while I wear my red and black plaid shirt and we’d both be right on trend.

Or I could exchange the shorts for a skirt or pants and his collar would add just the right amount of pattern to this black and red look.

I also have plans to take my bow dress and convert it for winter by wearing it over a turtleneck and tights. Wouldn’t the two of us be adorable if we did some pattern mixing?

Style not only has a gift guide for your feline friend, they also have a great article on what to wear for National Cat Day.  Where’s the article for National Dog Day, you ask? I think I’ll have to get right on creating that one. Clearly Chewie and I have this whole thing down pat.

Now excuse me, I’m off to buy a collar….
