Where the wild things are

Hey there lovebugs, happy hump day to you!  I hope you are having a great week!

Today I want to talk about a trend that isn't one of my go-to looks, but it will be making a comeback this summer.  Animal print.  While I may mix a leopard print shoe into my looks every now and then, I have never really embraced the animal print trend- until now.

I love this wavy zebra print in gray.  Really interesting pockets.

Ann Taylor, Ikat Leopard Top, $88
Only Ann Taylor could pull off a work appropriate button down in this print.  It's so chic!

Zappos, Anne Klein Fenton, $60
I'm obsessed with these.  Great print, stacked heel and rounded toe!

Let me tell you something, it is really difficult to find an animal print dress that doesn't make you look like a hot mess.  Now even though this model looks like she just woke up, the dress is really beautiful.  It's got a great neckline and a nice cinch at the waist.

So, animal prints are definitely a bold pattern to wear, especially between 9 and 5.  Personally, I'm more comfortable in stripes or polka dots but always try new prints because they might surprise you!

Be fabulous today!
