Bloggers Do It Better: Animal Instincts

I am so excited to be posting my first Bloggers Do It Better outfit post! And even more excited for it to be about animal prints! I am just now venturing into animal prints, so my stash is low, and there's no way I am brave enough to mix prints yet.  I don't know if it was a mix of thinking I was too white to wear animal prints, or just not finding the right ones, but I'm all about them now.

First Up: Cheetah!

Casual: Scarf/Wrap: Cheetah: Target 2011

I wore this today actual while out lunching with friends, running errands, and taking dinner to a friend who has recently lost a loved one. I LOVE this scarf, I think it's gorgeous! I bought it at Target last winter for about $16.  It's a large scarf, a square when laid out entirely, which adds to its versatility.  It can double as a wrap due to it's size as well.  Maybe I'll pair that with my LBD for a date?

Cheetah/Pony: Nine West Nadiar
While I was shopping with my niece Hannah in Tyson's Corner, we stopped in Nine West to look for a pair of nude heels for her to wear to school. High school.  She is so stinking fabulous! A girl after my own heart... Anyways, I found these babies on the 75% off rack, and walked away with a steal! These also qualify for pony as they are Pony hair!! I can't wait to pair these with a tailored white blouse and black pencil skirt.



Leopard: Jessica Simpson: TJMaxx $7.
I've already gushed about these babies, my $7 finds from TJMaxx! But of course they needed to make an appearance in this post...

Leopard: Calvin Klein Leopard Dress: Macy's
This was my graduation dress, and have since worn it once to church.  For shame, I know.  It's just incredible and SO fabulous!
