like an animal






With the exception of my 'lost years' of 6th and 7th grade (when I was obsessed with the color pink and the movie Legally Blonde), I have not been one to like wearing animal prints. On other people, sure, but not for me. When I came across this soft sweater at a local vintage shop, I had no choice; it belonged to me!

By the way, Miami is awesome so far (especially South Beach). It's a really beautiful city! I'll put up pictures soon, but the best/funniest so far things are:

- A business man, dressed in a suit, carrying a briefcase in one hand and a pink popsicle unashamedly in the other
- A kid simultaneously skateboarding and walking his dog
- A man I met that talks and acts exactly like Woody Allen and happens to take walkie talkie technology very seriously
(these are all people, of course)

Happy Friday, everyone!!!

wearing: vintage sweater, kimchi & blue tank, target socks

I'm usually not a huge fan of animal print either, but I love how comfy that sweater looks! And thinking of the man with the pink popsicle cracks me up.

Your socks make this outfit 10000 times awesome. Fact.

That's funny how you mentioned seeing the guy skateboarding and walking his dog at the same time, all of my boyfriends friends who have dogs do this...theyre also all pro skateboarders but I thought it was a trip when I first saw it too :)

Haha, sounds like you got some great shots from Miami. XD
I love the way you used the leopard print...I really do think animal prints can be classy and sophisticated if you style them right, and I think you did it beautifully. :D

It was only after I started blogging that I started to like leopard print, but not any leopard print, I'm too picky haha.
You look great with it! And I also like the colourful touch with the sock!

Very cute! The pink socks are precious with the leopard print!

I love the business man carrying the briefcase & the pink popsicle in the other hand! Great imagery haha.
