For the Love of Animal Print
Posted January 25, 2013on:
With the cold and actually SNOWY DAY(remember not en every year occurrence here in Virginia Beach), and my MESSED UP SINUSES, I opted not to do outfit photos. Hope you enjoy this , though and come back tomorrow for another installment of my Red-Orange Skinny Jeans!
I think as a woman you use to either really like animal print or you steer completely away from it. That seems like it is changing and more women are getting braver o evn just dipping their toes into it with accessories. I didn’t like animal print so much when I was younger. I had a leopard print sweater that my sister gave me and I wore it, but never really loved it. I was given a beautiful silk blouse many years ago by my sister-in-law and although I didn’t wear it, I couldn’t part ways with it either. Glad now that I kept it as it is the one pictured below…
Then my forties hit and I guess you could say I got of f the fence and am now a full fledged animal print junkie… I am not a one trick pony either:
Of Course there is The Big Cats Leopard and Cheetah
SnakeSkin and other Reptiles
Dear Readers, If I had to choose a favorite I would have to say that like everything in my world, it is subject to change. If you had asked me last year my answer would have been leopard or cheetah. Right now I have to say I am really partial to the zebra print. I think it is the high contrast between the black and white that are so appealing to me right now. Now time for you to chime in, do you like animal print and if so are you like me with a variety or is there one you really love and stick to? Do you wear it in clothing or stick to using it for accessorizing?
Gratitude: I am grateful to my husband for surprising me yesterday afternoon with a new extended mantle he insisted we install before lighting a fire , after hanging the TV above the fireplace. I am grateful for the added warmth of the fire and the fun the boys had making s’mores. I am grateful that after beginning Tom Sawyer today, that Connor seems interested enough to continue without me having to push too hard…I am grateful for the snow this morning(that didn’t stay,but left a light dusting for a little while) and the delight of Connor as he watched it falling and the text I received from Nicholas(17) while in study hall, as he was enjoying watching it as well.. I am grateful that the school allowed the phones this year as I enjoy getting texts from Nicholas when he is gone all day! I am grateful for the teacher staff day and looking forward to spending the day with both younger boys…
