Spotted at Blues Festival

Forever 21 Sweater and Shorts, Charming Charlie Necklace

If you were to open my closet, the one thing you would not find  a lot of is animal print. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not opposed to animal print. I just do not find many pieces that strike me. I have seen others (sisters-by blood and soul-included) who have stumbled upon great finds, but I myself often pick up a blouse, run my fingers across the fabric, and ultimately put it back for something else that catches my eye.

I could not resist when I spotted these shorts at Forever 21 because they reminded me of these amazing leopard Red Valentino pants.  In an effort to save a penny I’m trying to show restraint. So instead of Valentino, I opted for the look for less. The weather for the Magazine Street Blues Festival was beautiful so it was a good opportunity to get use out of my shorts before the cold weather rears its ugly head.

    This is the best use of animal print I’ve seen yet! I completely agree – my wardrobe is often devoid of animal print for the same reason. Lately I’ve been into a touch here and there – searching for the right leopard print shoes to pair with a simple neutral outfit.

    These shorts are great, you look amazing in this photo. Have followed your blog!

      Thank you so much! I was so excited to find these shorts. I should have mentioned the fabric is not the most forgiving but with a pinch at the waist they still work! I’m so happy you are enjoying the blog. 🙂
