Animalistic

Wednesday, November 11, 2009
I felt like Kate Moss with this scarf. Almost. I definitely got stares on campus. I'm not much of an animal print girl. I'm not much of a print girl period, so I wasn't sure how much I could take and thought a scarf would be the best way to ease into it. I also recently got a pair of animal print flats for free so I'm getting there. Do you own any animal print?

Don't mind my facial expressions. The husband and I both were in a rush that day. And there were a lot of people. Don't they have class or something...

  4. animal print is my trusty sidekick. i have a zebra striped rug from urban outfitters that i adore to pieces (i know, not clothes, but still!) and a pair of leopard print flats that have seen better days, but i love them too much to throw them out. i think animal print has to be done in moderation, and i love your scarf.

    at first i thought your jacket was from the miley cyrus line at walmart. confession: i own one, and i rock it, hard :).

  11. I don't have any animal prints as of yet; I'm a little bit daunted by the idea of wearing them. I have been looking at more subtle items like shoes and scarves.

    Your pairing of black with tan accents is great. You've inspired me to try a look similar to this :)

  12. I'm not really an animal print person either, but that scarf is so great on you!

    I have a cheapie pair of giraffe print flats I got at Payless, they are pretty comfy but I just don't wear them that often, as cute as they are

  13. I am not a huge fan of animal print, I am very picky about what I think looks good, but OMG I love the scarf!! I really like that pop of color :D

    I actually just bought my first animal print piece of clothing yesterday. But I'm not even sure if I'm going to keep it. I may end up returning it =/ We'll see. I'm just not entirely sure it looks good on me, I'll post a picture on my blog of the haul I did, and get feed back from everyone and then decided if I return it or not

  14. 2 pairs of leopard print shoes and a few animal print tops, lol!

    Omg I wish we lived in the same city so we could hang out! My hubby is working and to keep busy I'm reading Harry Potter (nerd alert!) and baking.

    I'm gonna post a recipe for Pumpkin Muffins tomorrow, you should bake some for the hubby ;-)

    Drooling over that jacket btw!!

  15. I like the animal print! And I tend not to, so that's saying something. I like how you're outfit isn't too busy since you wore white and black, and let the print take the attention.

    PS. I like the facial expressions, they seem more candid. and candid=fun

  16. Everything about this look is perfect! And yes,I have some leopard Jessica Simpson Heels. I love them!

  18. love the animal print, rarrr! super cute, especially against black.

  19. Oh wow, what an awesome picture and outfit!! Love the scarf... I have one animal print... a scarf, not as rad as yours!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I do not own animal print. I guess I'm too chicken. Plus my husband always says that animal prints belong on animals and I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to challenging his fashion views!! But you look sassy and brilliant, as always!

  21. I actually just bought some super cute zebra striped flats from Target. I love your scarf. I'm in a desperate search for a leopard print pea coat. If you find one, please let me know!

    ReplyDelete
  22. you are so gorgeous!! I love your bangs! Great scarf too

    ReplyDelete
  23. I own a fairly good bit of animal print. It's like a bright color, you really only need a small piece to make your outfit pop.

    ReplyDelete

  27. I don't own any, but I like how you used it. I could see owning some fun flats someday. :) Maybe a cardigan or something. Overall I enjoy seeing other people incorporate it, but I don't think it's my thing---though I do like prints.

  31. Elaine! This is fantastic!
    I love that your kept the other pieces simple & let the scarfe do the talking :)
    I don't own any animal print but a few years back when it all came back in, (as well as the craze of the ballet flat) I had a pair in zebra & one in leopard stripe. I was 14-15 & the coolest kid on the block. Haha

  32. i'm actually really conservative when it comes to animal prints. just borrowed one of my sisters zebra print dresses and its still hanging in my closet... unworn. i don't know why i'm so bashful about it, haha!

    but you in that leopard print is rockin'. love the slightly tough look.

    xo.

  37. I'm not really into animal print, but I love it on other people. My sister Adrien's signature shoes are leopard print flats. They just suit her, somehow.

    I love your look with the black and leather and everything!

  46. Um...I'm sure people were not staring because of the animal print. They were staring because you looked so darn hot. Seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love that scarf. And it look amazing on you - hence the stares. And I love leopard paired with black, it always makes it pop.

    ReplyDelete

  56. I too have been toying with animal prints! I went through a crazy animal print phase towards the end of high school..they really just never seem to go out of style! You definitely did animal print the right way...muted pieces and then BAM animal print! You look lovely!

    Thank you for all of your well wishes! You are so sweet! :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I like the look. Very rock 'n roll chic, especially with the bangs. The only animal print I have is a very tame zebra-striped dress, but I would like to find one classy leopard print that I could combine with basics.

    ReplyDelete
  58. i adore that bomber! (and i love the new pink jacket too!)

    I love coming to your sight and seeing you on the grounds of the U, it makes me all nostalgic, and I remember the newly wed days of my husband and I, SLC, working, school, meeting each other in the student union for a coke and more studying! living on a modest budget, and loving our simple life!!! By the way what is your major?

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think they were staring because they were jealous. I don't know what you're talking about: there's no need to be afraid of animal prints. You rock it!

  60. the scarf takes the look to another level

    ReplyDelete
  61. I actually love animal print, I have three shirts, bag, wallet, skirt, lining in one bag, and sunglasses in leopard print (different colors and shades). I don't know why I gravitate towards it. I also have zebra print and giraffe print items. I just make sure not to wear them all at the same time (I'd look like a jungle lol).

    ReplyDelete
  62. the leopard print scarf looks PERFECT with the rest of the outfit... so fierce!
