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!

Striped palazzo pants + white front tied top

Spring is in full swing now, so off we go in search of spring fun and flowers! Whoot Whoot! We ended up at the Leach Botanical Garden in Portland, Oregon. The flowers were in bloom all around the property, with hints of more yet to come. What started off on a more serious ‘down-to-business’ note ended up on a rather goofy note by the time we made our way up to the top of the gardens.

White top + silver hoop earrings

This outfit was perfect for a romp around the botanical gardens. The lightweight wide leg striped palazzo pants make it a comfortable, yet whimsical outfit. Tying the white button up shirt in a knot at the bottom also adds to the casual day look rather making it look too business-y for a day in the park. Add on comfortable velvet sneakers and a denim jacket for walking in the shady parts of the garden and you’re all set for a fun outing amongst the trees and flowers.
