animal kingdom

For today's post, I teamed up with Anna from Visions of Memories to create an animal-print themed look.  We both chose something with animal print from our closets and made an outfit.  I thought it would be a great time to show off this leopard-print sweater that I thrifted from Saver's.

black sweater and belt- forever 21, leopard sweater-
thrifted (Saver's), jeggings- Plato's Closet, boots- GoJane




This sweater used to be a little bit longer and before I could wear it with leggings, but unfortunately I'm pretty sure it shrunk in the dryer.  I definitely wanted to wear it belted, but it looked dumb belted on its own, so I threw the black sweater on top.  The neckline is a little high and it also has these side slits that I don't love, so if I ever get around to it I might try to alter it.  Regardless, I love the print and it was a steal at under $5!

I've been furiously knitting the past few days, working on one of my projects for Pay it Forward 2011 and tomorrow I'm off to Joann's to get some supplies.  I also picked up some lovely pearly pink yarn that I'm eventually going to use to make a cardigan for myself.  I'm so excited about the stuff I'm knitting right now, which is the way it has to be otherwise I'll never complete the project!  So I'm hoping to spend the weekend being crafty and finishing up the project I'm currently working on so that I can send it out early next week.  What will you guys be up to this weekend?  Happy Friday :D

Oh, and don't forget to check out Visions of Memories later today to see her outfit!

May I say how fierce you look in leopard print! Your colouring make the prints pop and they look stunning on you!

Oh, I hate when things shrink in the dryer and I can't wear them the same way any more! What a charming look, though.

That is such a nice leopard print... they're def. not all created equal! Yours is nice and subtle and classy. I love the belt, too! It's definitely what the top calls for. And I think the high neck works in this case :)

Can't wait to see what you knit up!

Love this! I've worked at a Plato's Closet for over four years now. It's awesome to see bloggers get such kick ass stuff from the stores.

Love the look, I think animal print is best done in small portions, like you've done.
Enjoy your weekend.
Thanks for your sweet comment.

Animal print just doesn't get old for me...at least in small doses. A coworker had on the most amazing leopard printed ballet flats the other day (shoe jealousy instantly set in). Love your look!

I get so jealous when I see the word 'thrifted'! hehe .. I wish we had a thrift store here, many bloggers (including you obviously) seem to find a lot of wonderful items at thrift stores :) Great outfit! x
