Sunday Style: Foxy Ladies

A couple months ago I heard on an Animal Planet special that Chihuahuas might have descended from foxes instead of wolves, and this has been my favorite factoid ever since. So naturally, when I wore this fox sweater, I had to take one of my tiny foxes out as an accessory.

Even though she loves to go on walks, Pepper gets super uncooperative whenever a camera is pointed in her direction. Sometimes she looks away exactly the moment the picture is taken.

Or tries to inconspicuously hide behind whatever’s available.

Yep, she’s sly like a fox all right. Plus, look at her–the snout, the ears, the intense predatory eyes (in this case probably fixed on a leaf)–the resemblance is there.

As far as my style goes, I really need to get with the program and learn to hem my own jeans. Being on the short side (I’m 5’3″), I do a lot of ankle rolling, but I still sometimes contend with bunchy knees and/or ankles, and it’s not too cute. Even though I’ve hemmed other pants before, the small leg opening on skinny jeans intimidates me. It’s probably time to break out the pairs I’ve ruined with paint through the years (despite Justin warning me many times not to paint in my regular clothes), do some practicing, and figure it out. Maybe if I use them to teach myself a new skill, I can at least say it wasn’t a total waste.

Even Pepper thinks I need to do something about my pant length situation. She’s like, “You got those things rolled again? Come on, lady.”
