pin real life / 11

while i consistently find myself ooh-ing and aah-ing over literal animal patterned clothing, they rarely make it home with me from the store. they're usually too cutesy/precious/sweet for my liking. 

i started keeping my eyes peeled for full scale (as opposed to just a zebra stripe or a leopard spot pattern) animal prints - think birds, cats, horses - done in an edgy and sleek way. 
it's obviously a memorable style choice to me, because i could actually recall other people's posts/outfits that included them. this never happens, i can barely recall what i wear, let alone what anyone else does. 


in real life:
this is pretty textbook for me: one feminine piece and everything else is totally not.

top* (whooping crane, perhaps?) [Zara] / half and half liquid leggings [F21] / chuck taylors [Converse] (swapped white laces for black) / bag c/o [Tai Pan Trading]

i picked up this bag during Tai Pan Trading's bi-annual Ladies Night. all their bags were on promotion and i walked around like a dope with 5-6 bags on my arms trying to decide which one to pick. i finally settled on this one, because it included a cross-body strap (another textbook move.) my much more fashion savvy friend Lindsay mistook it for a Rebecca Minkoff bag, and that is saying something.

*asterisk* items are still in stock as of original post date.
