Skirt? Joe Fresh
Purse? Vintage and thrifted
I put my brave face on to wear this. I live in a city where most inhabitants would think that 'pattern mixing' is a quilting term and I wore this. Once again I will be accepting virtual high fives for the next few days.
This outfit is for Nadine. She has been one of my most faithful readers who has followed me for a very long time. In the most non cheesy way possible, I want to say thank-you to everyone who stops by. Sometimes I feel like a butthead (such eloquence) about not being able to comment and respond to everyone, but I have to remember that as it stands now, my blog is my hobby; something I do in my spare time and sometimes there is no time to spare. But thank-you so, so much for every one's kindness over the last year and a half. Matt has been fired from his job as official complimenter, as you guys do it so well.
But back to Nadine... In the spring I wore double lace and I wrote about how I asked Matt what the next outfit challenge should be and he said double leopard. My next outfit post featured no double leopard and Nadine commented that she was expecting it. My heart broke because I let Nadine down (it's no secret I'm sensitive). Since then I've been trying to concoct the perfect animal print extravaganza. I thought pairing these shoes and this belt was too easy but there wasn't a lot of other options as I had just done a closet purge and gotten rid of a lot of my leopard stuff and given it to my sister-in-law because she just turned 40. And 40 year olds and leopard print go together like chocolate and peanut butter and marsh mellows and graham crackers. Ha! I'm kidding... Just trying to get her going... Did it work? xox
I purchased this shirt from Zara sale time (the only time for me...) and when I saw this skirt at Joe Fresh, I thought 'maybe I can'. And so I did. It may be all wrong but for some reason it felt kinda right. Thanks Nadine for making me push it a little further!
