I spent some time this weekend watching dogs compete in agility competitions at a local dog festival and fundraiser at the beach. Somtimes there is nothing more entertaining than watching well-trained dogs run through tunnels, cool off in mini pools, and play fly ball.  The Border Collies seem to excel in the competitions due to their intelligence and boundless energy.  Many dogs were available for adoption, and quite a few four-legged friends caught my eye. If it were feasible, I'd probably have a small pack of dogs at home, but for now, one is enough.

My outfit included my latest addition to the fringe kimono collection, a blue floral number which has a knack for getting stuck on the drawer pulls in my kitchen, and some practical, easy-to-walk-in studded boots that I scored for free at Crossroads after winning the Seller's Raffle.  The kimono/cardigan probably isn't the most practical for cooking, although it made a suitable cover-up for a cool day of watching the dogs at the beach.

Wearing: Ray-Bans, Phoenix concert tee, H&M carrot jeans, Threadsence Silent Sky kimono/cardigan, Ecote studded moto boots from Crossroads Trading Co., H&M fringe handbag, and assorted jewelry
