Swingy leopard print top + thoughts on the new animal print for the season

 

Leopard print is always in. I feel like it’s a classic that never goes out of style. But even leopard print can come back in a whole new way. Like, for instance, this red pleated swingy animal print top from H&M. How fun is this? Sooo fun. Lightweight and breezy and super fun to twirl. Yes. If it is a good outfit to twirl in, I twirl. Even if it’s just a top that’s twirly and not a dress or skirt.

And if the music is good, we dance…

Other animal prints I’m loving and have my eyes on are: zebra print and Dalmatian print. I’m seeing them online when I’m browsing websites. I like them both and hope they both come in this season. Usually there’s only one animal print other than leopard that’s in at a time. I still don’t think tiger print is going to make it big just yet. I wrote about that, here.

Which one are you rooting for? Are you still riding the snakeskin wave from last winter, or are you ready for a new animal print to make a comeback? Maybe we should come up with a different one altogether. Like color changing lizard skin. Haha. I’m all for a color-changing fabric. Is that invented yet? If so, please send my way…

As always, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

NYE and it’s time to shine

Are you all ready to start the new year out on the right foot? I certainly am. So, according to my cousin Paul, right before midnight on NYE, you should lift your left leg in the air so you can start out the new year on the right foot. I’m ready, are you?

This is a fun outfit. A bit sheer for Oregon winter weather, but fun all the same. Good thing we haven’t gotten a really bad cold snap yet or I would have been freezing. As it is, it’s been raining lightly every time we go out to take photos lately. Ick.

I think I may have actually sprinkled glitter wherever we went to photograph this because it was coming off of this outfit left and right as I was moving around. So when you are told to sprinkle glitter around like confetti, in this outfit, you actually can!

What could be more elegant than a black glitter jumpsuit for NYE? Dangle earrings plus a rose gold tassel necklace & metallic heels complete the look. Plus the cute little vintage beaded coin purse I found at Goodwill.

Here’s to a new start and sprinkling glitter around like confetti! Whoo hoo!
