Frida the Mini Corgi

Okay, so she's not really a mini corgi, but she's the closest thing to it! She's half corgi, half chihuahua. She has the short legs, a cropped tail and huge ears, just like a corgi, though! The only chihuahua traits she got were the buggy eyes, which have been making me laugh for almost 10 years.

She was really excited to be outside, off a leash, and spent most of the time scampering around trying to figure out how to get off the roof. I had a hard time getting a photo that wasn't blurred by motion.

 I had quite a spate of thrifting luck last month. One of my amazing finds was this vintage Burberry trench coat that fits like a glove. I'm usually swimming in vintage coats, but I knew it was Thrifting Destiny the minute I laid eyes on it. It even has slightly shorter sleeves, which I prefer in a coat. My husband makes fun of me, but honestly, a cropped sleeve is so much more flattering! 

The coat is missing the liner, but that just means I'll reserve it for the milder seasons.

As you may know, pattern mixing is "in" and, well, it just makes for fun outfits. A good point to remember is "When in doubt, color coordinate!" This can make any outfit look more pulled together.

Frida is known for her bewildered/worried expressions.

I always wondered if Frida was part corgi - she has exactly the right length to width ratio! Seriously, she's adorable, I lovthe face she's making as she's running towards the camera in the second photo. And can we talk about the fact that you not only thrifted a Burberry trench, but a Burberry trench that doesn't require alteration? I'm ridiculously envious. But I think I might be equally envious of your boots, they look like one of those high quality last forever pairs that I know I should buy but never do because in my silly in the moment logic, I could get ten things at Zara for the same price. Worst shopper ever right here ;)

I can't believe you thrifted that coat!! I've been wanting to find a thrifted Burberry coat for years. Lucky you! Frida is so cute! I like her buggy eyes. :)

Aw she's so cute! I love her bug eyes! She definitely looks like a mini corgi.
I also really love your print mixing here. The leopard print cardigan looks perfect with your striped top.
