Hi friends! I’ve gone through a little poopoo patch and haven’t been motivated to put together cute outfits so I thought I’d participate in Marion Berry’s Trend of the Month Challenge. And this month… animal prints!
Okay, I’m not a big animal print wearer, or lover even. I admire those who wear it and wear it well but I think there is a fine line between this
I just can’t help but think of Fran Drescher as The Nanny when I think of animal print.
Obviously not everyone takes it to the level that that character did, but there is definitely a line that is easy to cross.
Since I am so scared of animal print, the only thing I own that is animal print is a cheetah scarf. I happen to get a lot of compliments on that scarf so I’m rather proud of it. (as I write this I realize there is a shirt in my closet that might count as animal print but a very subtle one).
With that said, here is my animal print challenge result. Be kind!
I worked with what I had in my closet, and have had in my closet for many years, and put this together in less than a day. I was also working with the ever changing weather in Pennsylvania right now. 48 degrees when you leave for the morning and 73 in the midafternoon. I also have to layer carefully for my job and make sure that all pieces are appropriate to wear as the layering comes off.
Sweater: Ann Taylor Loft bought on sale many years ago. Similar
Dress: Target bought many years ago. Similar
Boots: Target bought a few years ago. Similar
Earrings: Odette Hoops, $39
Ring: Stackable Deco Rings, $49
Scarf: bought at a flea market for $5! Similar
What would you have done differently? How do you like to layer for fall?
I had fun with this challenge! I can’t wait for next month’s!!
