    Style Trend: Animal Prints


    Until yesterday evening I had no idea I would be doing a post today on animal prints but here is how I got my inspiration. On Monday I found some beautiful animal print stationary with the help of one of my blogging friends Amy Labadie.  Amy offers a great service called  Paper Concierge.  Basically Amy will help you do all your stationary shopping! The website has a great selection of note cards, invitations, stamps, and other fun items.  Amy also has an awesome blog of her own called All the Little Things which I adore.  I don't know about you but I  like to have a good stock of personalized stationary including thank you cards and note cards on hand. So, Amy suggested a few options and I thought these pink animal note cards were bright and fun.   Amy is also helping me order matching return address wraps to go with them.  I cannot wait for these notecards to arrive!
    Yesterday morning I snapped a couple of pictures of Ariyana as she was on her way out the door to preschool. And, I was already wearing this outfit in the evening so I decided to throw on this animal print scarf  and this bangle my mom brought back for me from Kenya. (Personally, I like the animal print trend but in small doses. )

    So, voila! This is how I got my inspiration yesterday.

    Have you embraced the animal print trend for the summer? What fun animal print items have you added to your wardrobe?

    Okay this is so adorable!! Look at that child!!

    And I love your scarf, too. I work the animal print in on the shoes and in the lining of one of my handbags. Whenever I go to pay for something and it flops open the lining is met with the glee of a server or a cashier. So fun!

    I adore animal print! Except only in really small doses, like shoes or scarves.

    Your daughter is a stunner!! Those big brown eyes! xx

    Love the pics! So cute! I have absolutely no animal print in my cupboard. I don't usually wear them, might start experimenting!

    I'm not much of an animal print person, but that scarf looks very subtle. The animal print is not so imposing, I think I would be able to wear something like that.

    I love animal prints. I think that when they're done right (one piece only per outfit!) they are classic. I have a pair of zebra print heels that I pair with a red dress. I always feel sexy in that outfit!

    I am not big on animal prints. But I have one scarf and one dress. :) Your girl is so cute and a little fashionista ... :) Love your heels!

    I agree - less is more with animal prints! Love the scarf (and of course Ariyana's pants, but that goes without saying!)

    awww cute pics! :) I think zebra print is definitely my favorite right now. I've been dying for zebra print flats with red trim.

    July 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAnnie

    I embrace it year round! Love all of it :) My favorite dress for the summer is a cream and brown zebra print dress!

    Oh totally! I always have loved animal print and I wear it quite often. But in small doses for sure. Your outfit so looks like something I would wear. You look beautiful and your daughter is too precious!

    Have a great day, honey! :)

    You and your daughter both look adorable in your animal print outfits! I definitely embrace certain animal prints, but for some reason I just can't get on board with leopard print. I like it on other people, but feel like it doesn't look right on me. I love snakeskin and zebra though. Hope you have a great day!


    July 28, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterValerie

    You both look great!
