Into the Wild


For this edition of Bloggers Do It Better, we were challenged to wear animal prints...as many as we felt brave enough to.  I love leopard & snakeskin and firmly believe they can both work as neutrals.  But, I've also noticed that you must be very selective when buying these pieces because, when done the wrong way, they can easily look cheap (which is why I have no shirts, skirts or pants in this print).  So I decided to throw on my favorite scarf with some splashes of bold color ~ sometimes a little goes a long way.

* Due to the incessant rain we've been experiencing in NY, we had to run out on our deck, during a break in the clouds, to shoot.  I tried to grit my teeth & bear the cold, but didn't last for long before I grabbed my trench coat.




What I'm wearing:
Old Navy blouse (here), New York & Co. scarf (last seen here), Gap trouser jeans, Pelle Studio trench, Style & Co. belt, Calvin Klein boots, Target earrings & bracelet

Love this look! The color of the blouse with the belt and then the animal print scarf is perfect together. The trouser jeans are great too.

Love the blouse with the leopard scarf! Actually, the whole outfit is pretty amazing!

Andi said...

Whoa...what are the odds?! Stopped here for the first time from Budget Babe's page...and happen to be wearing an almost identical outfit today -- I have those exact Gap jeans, and that fuschia/magenta top (but the one without the collar from ON...I can't tell -- does yours have a collar?). No belt though, with leopard pumps. Great minds? I think so :o)

Kimberly said...

Andi, that is too funny! Yes, my blouse is the one without the collar as well. :)

Noelani said...

The yellow of the belt and purple top compliment eachother so well! That belt looks exactly like a version I have from H&M (in orange and green;). You seriously can't go wrong with a bright belt.

The trousers look fab on you, lady! I completely agree about animal print too - if worn the wrong way it can look very cheap + tacky. Which is why I've only just started to love it!
