Leopards and Tigers and Ruffles...

Oh my! This is an outfit I wore to church a few weeks ago. I found this AMAZING shirt at... (should I even say it?) The pencil skirt is also from there... as are the shoes. The cardi is from the Wal-Mart $3 sale rack about 8 years ago. And the amazing belt and ring are from my good friend, Emily.

I never really do animal print but thought it would be fun. My hubs also does not like animal print so I warned him ahead of time. "Hey honey... Tomorrow I'm going to wear a big ruffly shirt... and a tiger ring... and a leopard belt... and a pencil skirt... so brace yourself." (He also does not like the way pencil skirts hug my tushy. Sorry dude. Can't help it.) I also like the way the leopard belt ties in the black from the shirt and the tan from the skirt.

My 6 1/2 year old daughter said I "looked like that weird lady from the movie." I still haven't been able to figure out which one she is talking about. Any guesses?
Roughly inspired by this pic on pinterest.


  1. That looks awesome! This may be your best outfit yet! And I have no idea to whom your daughter is referring.

  2. I agree with MJ! This is my favorite outfit of your's! And I have no idea who she could be talking about either!

  3. Beau guessed "Cruela Devil" niiiice honey... thanks. Don't go to sleep tonight or keep one eye open... ;)

  4. I love this. I agree that the belt ties the black and tan together, and the pop of color in the cardigan is perfect. You look beautiful!
