Rawr

Top: Forever 21 (shop, similar, similar)  |  Blazer: Target (similar, similar)  |  Shorts: New York & Company  |  Red pumps: Target (similar)

I don't know why, but I've been slow on the animal print thing.  I know it keeps coming back "in" but in my mind it's a classic.  I started out small with an animal print belt, and then I added a scarf to the collection.  Accessories are great ways to incorporate animal print without going overboard.  Recently I took a shot at animal print shoes, and now this top.  I love this top!  It's thicker than I thought it would be and transitions well for business to casual and summer to fall to spring...and it was $18 from Forever 21.  I sound like a commercial, but this is not a sponsored post or anything.  I'm just always amazed when I find things at Forever 21 that don't seem like they'll fall apart in a year, you know what I mean?

  2. Hahaha! Yes, things from Forever21 tend to fall apart after 3 washes. I try to stay away from that store but their stuff are just too darn cute! ;)

  5. Cute outfit, the only thing I own with animal print is a belt. I might venture into other things like maybe a scarf or something. Have a great day.

  6. I was also slow on the animal print train but now that I like it I am probably going overboard.

  8. Are your shorts brown or black I can't quite tell. I think it looks great together. I keep wanting to hold onto the fashion rule I was once told about not mixing brown and black, but I need to let go!
    I have been following you on pintrest for a few weeks, you are really helping me branch out and come up with my own fashion sense, thanks!

  12. Very cute. My evolution into animal print wearer had pretty much the same steps... and now I totally consider it a neutral. Leopard really looks good with everything!

  14. I still haven't embraced the "animal print" thing, but the print on your top verges more on mishapen polka dots than animal print ;) Or I guess it's more of a giraffe print? Either way, it's cute! I don't think I'll ever be able to jump on the leopard/cheetah bandwagon though...

  16. I haven't tried the animal print (Other than Halloween a few years back) but your outfit makes me what to try it out! I've been really inspired by your blog to redesign my closet! I even started a blog so I can document my journey! So thank you!!! :)

  20. I am a big fan of leopard/animal prints too. I started with accessories too and now I have a skirt, a dress and a couple of blouses too. So timeless and classy!


    Love the pop of color with your pumps!
