Wild Thing

While I’m away in Las Vegas, I thought I’d leave you with some inspiration. Fashion/decor inspiration, that is. I’m a total lover of animal print. I love to incorporate those natural tones, textures, and patterns into my wardrobe. It’s like my eyes gravitate toward animal print whenever I’m in a store.

I’ll start with my favorite animal {the cheetah}:

Now, we’ll move on to probably one of my most wearable prints; leopard print. Here’s a little animal print lesson for you:
Cheetahs have dark, one-colored spots whereas leopards have two-tone spots.

Personally, I tend to not wear black whenever I can avoid it so, leopard usually suits me better since it has a teensy-bit less black in it :)

Then there are the other animal prints which you can also have a lot of fun with. Giraffe, snakeskin, and tiger!

So, whether it’s an article of clothing or an item of decor for your home, I’m a firm believer that a little bit of animal print can go a long way :) {Let me also just put it out there that I am NOT into real animal skin/fur. Noooo, thank you!} I think using the faux stuff is just as great. Actually, it’s better!

One day I’ll have to write a post on all the animal print I actually own. I have a feeling there will be more than I realized!

So, friends, what’s your take on animal print? What’s your favorite?

Animal print is so awesome! What a great, inspiring post! I'm loving the leopard print infinity scarf the best--maybe because I'm a bit obsessed when it comes to scarves :)
