Gift Guide for the Dog Lover

I'm so excited to bring you guys today's holiday gift guide. This one is for all of the #dogmoms out there (and #dogdads). My husband and I have a German Shepherd named Emma (who is currently in a time out for pooping inside...again), but just like our other kids, we still love her. We'd also really love it if she'd quit going potty inside, but that is beside the point. The point is there is no shame in spoiling your sweet fur baby, especially during the holidays!! And while some of these gifts are items for your dog, some are great gift ideas for the dog lover in your life too.


The Dogist 2018 Wall Calendar by Elias Weiss Friedman author of The Dogist, for example, is the perfect Christmas gift for someone who loves dogs.



These super cute Christmas Plaid Dog Collars by Mr. Bow Tie Boutique would be the perfect holiday gift for doggies and dog owners alike! Whether you have family holiday photos coming up, or you simply want your furry friend to look festive for those…

Last year it was all about solid-colored denim. For 2013, patterned shorts top the list of summer trends in shorts. Classic prints like floral and polka-dot are still widely available, but Aztec patterns in particular are very trendy this summer. I really love these Ikat-print shorts. Designer brands like Burberry and Lilly Pulitzer have well-tailored patterned shorts . However, more affordable stores like Old Navy, Kohl's,  and Target have a nice selection of women's patterned shorts under $20.

There are so many ways to wear the tailored patterned shorts. These semi-dressy cuffed shorts look great casual, but you can also dress them up with a blouse and even a blazer. Here are three ways to wear patterned shorts this summer.
