It’s time for another Bloggers Do It Better Challenge!  This time, the goal was to mix it up animal style!  Oh yes, Kristina said animal prints… if you dare!  So are you blinded by my overindulgence of big cat prints?  I guess you can call me the cat lady!  (I DO have two cats… and one dog too!)

jacket :: CABI
top :: H&M
skirt :: Moschino Cheap and Chic (ebay)
earrings :: Fantasia (gifted from Mr. S)
necklace :: gifted from MIL
bracelet :: Anthropologie (sale)
heels :: Stuart Weitzman
purse (as clutch) :: Coach

Getting away with two animal prints can be tricky!  It helps that the leopard print is black and tan.  To tie it all together, I grabbed my tan/neutral heels and purse.  Yes, the same trick that I use all the time!  P.S. It doesn’t hurt to have a little attitude to boot!  In all seriousness, a little confidence can add a certain je ne sais quoi to any outfit!

This wrap bracelet was an Anthropologie sale find for $20!  It has beautiful cobalt, turquoise and clear beads.  {I tried it to find the link but it’s sold out!  Similar here and here.}  It’s so versatile because you can wear it as a bracelet, double necklace, or long necklace!  The silver necklace is a gift from my MIL – it’s supposed to be my name in Hebrew.  She got it on her Israel trip.

YAY it’s Wednesday!!
