Animal instincts

I love adding animal inspired pieces to my looks.  You can pair them with a basic outfit to add depth and texture, or add them to a more colorful look as a neutral.

My style is most often very casual.  My go-to look is usually a button down shirt and jeans.   Especially during my pregnancy it’s getting harder to experiment with outfits.  I kept my look sleek and simple, and added two animal inspired pieces to enhance my outfit.

The first look included an old Zara leopard coat.  I don’t think you can go wrong with leopard.  I usually wear it in the form of a scarf or shoes but when I saw this jacket a couple of years ago I knew it was a must have.  I don’t get to wear it very often, but when I do, I always get compliments.  I think a good statement coat is an investment…especially when it’s not expensive!  Getting a basic print like leopard, houndstooth, or a bold color will be something that can last for many years and will always come back into style.

For the second animal inspired accessory I added a faux fur vest.  The vest adds volume, layers and texture.  I bought this vest last year at Club Monaco during end of the season sales.  I am very happy I did since this year faux fur vests are everywhere.

As soon as I saw this Rag & Bone sweater on the runway last year, I knew I had to have it.  Its perfection.  It has a school girl/preppy vibe with a sexy low cut V neck.  You can dress it up or down and wear it for almost every occasion.

For this post I decided to play up the school girl look and go with my leather shorts and over the knee boots.  I love how sexy and fashionable these boots are.  I had been on the hunt for the perfect over the knee boot, for about a year and finally took the plunge with these.  I was debating between another pair that had a thinner heel and pointed toe.  I opted for the Stuart Weiztman’s since I felt that the thicker heel and rounded toe would make the boots a little more causal.  When I splurge on a pair of shoes I want to be able to wear them as much as I can.   I figured the more casual pair would be perfect for my everyday style and would be more versatile for night and day looks.
