*tweet tweet*

You guys already know how much I love "animal prints", especially the atypical ones, i.e. animals in print.  So of course, when I saw this sweater at Old Navy, I couldn't resist.  It didn't hurt that it was on sale, either! They have a few variations with other animals, which I was tempted to grab.  I resisted the urge--as I usually jump on a trend, over buy said trend, and then at a later time catch myself wondering "What is all this junk in my closet?!"  So I tried to spare myself.  I'm still debating that fox, though.

I finished off the look with cropped jeans and the cutest shoes I'd gotten a few weeks ago from DSW.  Yes, they are almost identical to a shoe that Zara use to sell a couple seasons ago.  I wasn't able to snag them before they'd sold out at Zara and have been keeping my eye out for a pair that were similar (or in this case, identical).  Also, unlike the Zara version, these are real suede, yet were similarly priced. Yay me!

By the way, aren't these handmade earrings great?!  I am totally smitten with all things African Ankara/Wax print and that's what these remind me of.  I won them via a giveaway from a fashion blog that I follow--Sweenee Style.  I love her looks, so be sure to check her out!

  6. Ok, so we are obviously on the same wave length. Unlike you, I didn't resist the animal motif sweater urge (lol). I have this sweater, one with a camel from J-crew and another with a cat from Forever 21. I think they look so cute and quirky (as you've shown because you look FAB!) and I'll be wearing mine well after the trend has faded - 'cause I'm cool like that (lol). Love the new decor too! ;-)

    1. They weren't pricey at all. I hate that it looks like a lot of sizes are gone. I guess I wasn't the only one that caught wind to them!
