One of life's simple pleasures. Walking your dog (or your neighbor's dog) is a time to bond with your furry friend, get some fresh air and meet other dog lovers in the neighborhood. Any chance to be in nature and I'm in, even in this dreadful heat.

I'm curious, are you intentional about what you wear to walk your dog? While it may have never crossed your mind, it crosses mine daily. Living in a condo, walking is an every-scenario situation — there's no yard to let Bo out in. While I don't enjoy changing in and out of clothes, I do have a dog walking uniform to keep my daily outfit clean and tidy.

Your outfit choices may reflect aspects of your personality, lifestyle and priorities, whether you're dressed in jeans and a button-down, athletic wear, a flowy dress or cute shorts and a top. Shall we explore what your dog walking clothes say about you?

So, where do you fall? Is it accurate?

While I have fallen into each of these categories, my top dog walking outfit is jeans and a button-down. I alternate between two pairs of jeans and two button-downs. I swear my neighbors must think it's all I own ;) However, for me there's comfort in putting the same thing on each time I walk Bo. I don't worry about sweating or getting dirty because these designated items are almost exclusively reserved for dog walking. Wash and go ... on repeat!
