Summer Dog Walking Outfits That Are Actually Stylish

I’ve been on a mission for the past 6 months to make my dog walking outfits more stylish. Since I work from home and go for a few walks a day, I like to have outfits that I can wear the whole day including the dog walk. I had a lot of success over the winter (thanks to insulated jeans that are actually stylish), but now that Summer is upon us I realized I need to upgrade my warm weather wardrobe, too.

Stylish Summer Dog Walking Outfits


I think Summer clothes wear out faster since you’re sweating more, and then washing them more. When I pulled out the tank tops and shorts from last year I realized a lot of them has seen better days! A lot of them had dog drool from last summer still on them (oops).

So I did a little online shopping and found a few summer dog walking outfits that are practical and actually stylish. I’m going to pick up a bunch of these in desperate need of new shorts to go with my favorite dog walking t-shirts like this one, this one and this one.

Now is a great time to shop for this stuff! 90% of the things in this post are from Nordstrom, and their Half Yearly Sale is May 22 – June 2nd. Items are up to 50% off all over the site! So add what you want to your cart now then check out later this week. FYI – everything in this post can be found all in one place at the bottom : )

I’ve always bought individual items and just worked them into my wardrobe. But lately, I’ve been trying to shop for “outfits” so that I know I have a really cute and coordinated look at all times. Of course, then those items can mix and match with other things. It’s a subtle shift, but it’s been helping me look more put together on a day to day basis.

With each of these outfits, I found a lot of options that can mix and match. I also added in some bralettes. I don’t really want to wear an uncomfortable underwire bra every day but I also don’t need a full on sports bra just to walk the dogs. So I’m stocking up on a few easy bralettes for this Summer. Have you tried the True & Co. brand yet? I’ve heard so many good things, I can’t wait to try this bra out.

I’ve also discovered that I need a fanny pack for dog walks. Seriously, I NEED it! It’s just so easy to load one up with my phone, keys, treats, poo bags, earbuds, etc. And it looks a lot better than having all my pockets jammed full of stuff. Thanks to my fanny pack habit I also have fewer crumbs in my pockets – and that makes me feel instantly more put together! For a longer day out, or an adventure to a new part of town, I also love a little backpack so I can take a dog water bottle and a collapsible bowl.
