This was an outfit from the weekend that is not my typical style but I thought it was easy and a fun way to break out my new cheapie leopard top. As much as my inner 55 year-old wealthy divorcée cougar / poly-spandex loving North Jersey makeup artist selves love a good animal print, it is a pattern I find difficult to incorporate it into my everyday wardrobe. Short of leopard print shoes, I've always shied away from larger bolder pieces.
But animal print (leopard is my fave) is hard to ignore right now and I find myself getting sucked into the trend. I wish I could be bold and stylish enough to pull off a faux leopard coat, but I'm pretty sure I'd resemble great-grandma Myrtle more than Sienna Miller in one. So I'm satiating my craving with bits and pieces, like these mary jane-y t-straps. Maybe a belt will be next on the horizon.
What do you think of animal print? Is it fun? Or is it a little too much?
