Day 7 - a week of Animal Outfits

Week 1 comes to a close - 7 days of animal outfits down, 24 more days to go (and maybe more!)

For our Saturday excursion, I picked an oldie but a goodie for my animal outfit of the day - my beloved hedgehog tee from Anthropologie.  I bought this top in 2013 right before my wedding.  I wore it 2 days before the wedding to get my mani/pedi.  I love this top!  While The Husband and I were eating lunch at Tender Greens, a girl stopped by out table on her way out and asked where I got my top - I pointed to the gigantic Anthropologie store diagonal from us and said there - but a few years back.  She smiled and said she loved the hedgehogs!

I especially love the scoop-back with buttons - an unexpected detail for this cute little tee.

The pictures from this post were taken in front of the new (and gigantic) Anthropologie & Co store at the Stanford Shopping Center - it is 2 stories and 20,000 square feet of glorious Anthropologie, Terrain, and BHLDN products - it's my happy place!  It will be yours too once you go there.

  • Hedgehog tee - Anthropologie
  • Green cardigan - Anthropologie
  • Jeans - Gap
  • Tennies - Brooks
On to week 2!

5 days of Animal Outfits

So - I've made it 5 days now.  And, I haven't even come close to wearing all of my animal clothes...

And - it's another day of zebras.  I figure why not just go for it with the zebras - they're awesome!  And did you know that zebras love reading books?  The black print on white pages makes them feel right at home.  You might spy a sneaky zebra reading in a library somewhere...  Here's hoping!

  • Cardigan: Gap
  • Tank: Lucky Brand (side note - I saw this tank several years back and loved it.  Ordered it on-line, and hated it on.  Then last year, I was perusing the Lucky sale section online and saw it again - for like $5.99 or some ridiculously low price.  I thought it would make a cute workout top.  It does.  Today is the first day I've worn it as something other than a workout top.  I love it!)
  • Jeans: Gap
  • Fox Socks: Gap
  • Booties: Dolce Vita

On to day 6!

31 days of Animals - #AOOTD

So - it's no surprise that I love animals (and sparkly things).  When I made my last animal clothing purchase (a zebra sweater and gold animal tee from J.Crew - pictured below),

The Husband laughed and said that I could probably wear something "animal" everyday for a month.

Challenge accepted.

So - here's to 31 days of animal outfits of the day (#aootd) in January!

January 1, 2017 - pulled out an animal from the archives - this sweater from Banana Republic back in Spring 2013.  I love giraffes and just had to have this navy & white striped giraffe sweater.  I paired this with a pair of J.Crew leggings, Puma tennies, and a Land's End white vest. And, the pay phone actually works!

Not pictured are my llama flannel PJ pants that I'm lounging around in this evening.  I've got animals for every occasion!

Until tomorrow!
