i am wearing: sheer blouse from nordstrom rack, leopard maxi skirt from le lapin d’or, gap belt is as old as the hills, vintage smoky topaz ring, cream ring from h&m, black ring from f21. necklace was a gift from my mom. black ballet flats from nordstrom rack (not shown).

i am participating in bloggers do it better again and this time the assignment is animal prints! my favorite! i took most of these pics on my front door step and was constantly looking over my shoulder making sure there wasn’t a mountain lion behind me. last night we were woken up by a LOUD scary growling/snarling sound and we were certain it was a mountain lion. once the sun came up and we were a little more rational (doesn’t everything seem more dramatic at night???), we decided it was probably a bobcat…BUT STILL. i made my husband take the dogs out to go potty and even convinced him to do it again tonight! so i thought this skirt was only fitting for this post. rawr.

    Wow, that skirt is amazing! A much different print then I’ve seen in stores. Looks great with the sheer blouse. Can’t believe you had a bobcat (or mountain lion!) so close to home. Either one sounds pretty scary too me!
