When my husband saw this outfit he was quiet.
Not a word.
Or a peep.
Out of him.
My daughter had no such restraint. “That headband with that vest?”
“No. Just no.”
This, of course, made me giggle.
I had purchased this red and white striped wrap dress from H&M the week before when I went shopping with my daughter. I knew immediately I wanted to wear it over my Bermeja Tunic Dress (sold out, similar dress here) as a vest. It was a bargain at $5. I loved the way Shy Girl Loud Voice remixed the Bermeja Tunic Dress with her vest (I previously styled the Bermeja Tunic Dress here and here). The headband was also from H&M. I believe it was more than the dress/vest at $6. I wanted to crawl into this leopard trend with soft baby moves. It is out of my comfort zone.
So, I took some pictures with the headband and some without.
That way everyone is happy.
We took Murphy with us that day to get pictures, because my husband had taken Ollie for a car ride earlier in the day and left Murphy at home with me.
After listening to Murphy crying at the door for a half an hour, I called my husband to inform him that he had broken the dog.
Murphy could not comprehend not going with Ollie.
But Murphy hates car rides.
He gets anxious.
He loves the walks.
He is the exact opposite of Ollie, not only in looks, but in activities.
Ollie had to be carried home after his last walk.
This made it difficult for my husband because he was all ready carrying me.
Murphy was definitely not as good as Ollie during the photo shoot. Murphy does not follow direction well. He is always on the lookout for someone who is going to come and steal all of the goldfish crackers. He has convinced himself it is going to happen and will stay up nights guarding the pantry door.
Being in a desert surrounded by nothing but dirt and brush made him leery. He was convinced The Goldfish Thief was lurking behind every bush.
Nevermind that we did not bring any goldfish crackers on this trip. Goldfish crackers appear like magic and thieves appear more quickly than that.
It is basic dog logic. The only logic that I currently adhere to.
My poor dog. If only he knew…
The only Goldfish Thief around them here parts…
Was the one holding his leash.
Have you jumped on this leopard trend? Do you own anything leopard? Are you yay or nay about the headband? Don’t worry. It won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t like it. I have pretty tough skin… And cheddar cheese cracker breath.
