Life is Merrier

I saw a bumper sticker once that said "life is merrier with a Boston terrier."  It's true.  It's also true that life is merrier with a Boston terrier sweater.  This one was a Christmas present from my dad and stepmom.

Blazer, Apt 9, thrifted; sweater, Bass, gifted; blouse, vintage Karen Scott, gifted (thanks Chenille!); skirt, Alison Brittney, Amazon; fleece tights, No Boundaries, Walmart; Boston terrier socks, Bass, gifted; shoes, Bare Traps, Younkers; earrings, gifted (thanks, Kristin!)

I highlighted my Boston terrier sweater with Boston terrier socks and earrings.  To make the socks as eye-catching as possible, I wore them over coordinating tights.  I complemented the puppy accents with houndstooth, because those things clearly go together.

I'm thrilled by the way the divergent patterns and themes come together in one big graphic explosion.  I felt great in this outfit.  I would wear it every day.

So why is life merrier with a Boston terrier (or a Boston and  a half like Widget and Ursa)?  They are adorable dogs.

 They know when to be helpful, like when I set a laundry basket on Widget and he didn't move for 15 or 20 minutes.
They help you keep your obligations.  In this case Widget has a library book date slip stuck to his lip.  I know to return library books, Widget.

I hope your days are merry and if you're looking for a merriment increaser who will also keep you active and well-socialized.  Adopt a Boston Terrier!
