a touch of meow.

I've brought this up before.  I was never a big animal print fan, until one fateful day when I realized how crazy that was!  Well, that's not exactly how it happened.  I think I bought a leopard print belt (below) and then it was all downhill from there-- leopard everything!

My favorite thing to do is incorporate touches of animal prints in an otherwise simple outfit.  It catches the eye and is great start for dabbling in prints.

  3. I used to hate leopard print. But lately I'm finding myself trying on leopard print skirts. I have yet to buy myself one though...

  4. I went bold (well for me anyways) and got animal print flats. Love them! Animal prints just go with everything.

  5. It's always fun to add a little animal into everything. I love how you did it with the scarf and belt. Just perfect!

  8. I had the exact same relationship with animal print. I bought one accent piece, and suddenly it was everywhere!

  9. Sounds like there are a lot of us that relate, Yasi! I have always felt the same, but something changed for me this fall when I began getting more into the animal prints. I think watching other bloggers come up with such darling combos using animal prints have really helped me in my use of the prints. I recently bought a faux fur leopard print moto jacket (featured in yesterday's post!) and I LOVE it! If you had told me that I would own a piece of clothing with that combo let alone wear it I would have laughed at you! Love your pearls btw!! You always look great :)

  10. I love that pearl necklace! And I was the same way with animal print. I think it's such an easy way to make a plain outfit exciting!
