Nothing says Sunday more than a dog walk followed by a brunch. Maybe a roast dinner. Still, it’s one of the best things about being English! I love to make a special effort when walking with friends or family and NOT wear my usual combats or jeans. So I set off to find the perfect dog walking dress, and guess what? I found it!
There are things to take into consideration when you are choosing the perfect dog walking dress – you need to feel comfortable, you should be able to bend, stretch and chase your hounds with abandon and without mishap. It also needs to look great with a sturdy pair of boots and a wooly hat…
Have you noticed it doesn’t really get wintery until well into January apart from a bit of frost in the morning? Christmas has become almost balmy in recent years, which I hate. But I really don’t mind how pleasant the walks are!
This dress would pair really well with a thick knit cardi that’s so in style this year – you know, the ones that look like they’ve been knitted using dinosaur bones! And add a pair of thick tights if it is frosty, it won’t spoil the look at all.
Another thing I appreciate about this dress is it’s asymmetrical shape. This Asymmetric Pleated Dress is cut so it does magical things like swoops in under ones boobs to accentuate the waist, but the kicks out to disguise ones girth.
I’ve put weight on and so was extraordinarily excited by the ruffles – which very ‘now’ – I could take them or leave them – but here they work a little magic and disguise my ‘extra load’.
The back is kept nice and simple.
The dress is easy to wear and easy to care – it’s machine washable.
I’m very fond of the man who owns my local dry cleaners – he saved the day once on Prom night, when the dress we hired for my daughter was given to us dirty – I shall always be grateful for his stoic effort to get out those grass stains.
But collecting dry cleaning is a bother and always will be. Don’t get me started on hand wash…
Because this dress goes so well with boots you can run about. I’ve matched it with an old pair of Biker boots.
By the way Closet London pairs this dress with (very) high heeled ankle boots and it looks fab (I’ve shown you at the end).
With all the clever design this dress just might be the best in show. Yes, I did.
We left the dogs curled up, snoring heavily in their beds, and head back out to brunch at Bill’s.
Where I ordered Coconut Porridge with Golden Berries and Candied Pistachios and a giant mug of Cappuccino .
Well, I’ve been running round the woods, I deserve it.
