It’s A Jungle Out There

I cannot resist
Critters on my shirts and skirts
My shoes are jealous*

I did not even realize that most of my outfits lately have revolved around critters. Or creatures. Or things with faces on them, until I went to pull some photos for recent outfits. Wow! Lots of animals! Okay, two out of the three are owls. So, it is a small selection in the animal kingdom. Here are some I have worn lately:



I waited patiently for this owl pullover (the Wisened Pullover from Anthropologie) to make it to sale. And it did! And I wisely grabbed it. I paired it with my JBrand Moto Skinny Jeans I bought for $20 a few weeks ago (regularly $240!). The earrings are Lucky Brand found on clearance at Macy’s.



I bought this owl skirt on a great sale from Anthhropologie last year. I paired it with my striped shirt from H & M. I bought my Lucky Brand Boots during an amazing sale a few weeks ago at Piperlime. They have incredible padding. I wore them all day at ____________ (fill in the blank from the Haiku at the bottom) and felt like I was wearing tennis shoes!


I love my hedgehog Creature Feature Top from Anthropologie. I wear it all of the time. This time I wore it with my brown corduroy cropped pants I purchased about six years ago from Anthropologie on sale.

Do you love animals on your clothes? What is your favorite piece?

* The haiku in the beginning is part of the weekly writing challenge. I started today and will do five Haikus by Friday. Here is one from yesterday (can you guess where we were?):

Crammed onto a bus
Screaming children all around
Just to see a mouse

  8. Love love love the critters!!! Especially the owl sweater!!! It is such a lovely rich brown! And I bet you went to Disneyland!!! lol

    • Thank you, Cynthia! Yes, we made our way to Disneyland. So crowded! But it was a sweet day with a lot of surprises.

      I hope you are recuperating from Thanksgiving well and that Marcy got the food she desired! : )


  9. You gave me a great idea for the Wisened Pullover sweater. For Thanksgiving I wore mine with mushroom colored jeans similar to yours. I love this sweater and it’s great that animal clothing can be found everywhere these days. I don’t want this trend to end!

    • Oh yay! Thank you for letting me know. I am so super excited! I love that owl sweater. It is so cute. I like it with black and mustard jeans, too. Just not as much as I do the mushroomy color. I am in love with the animal trend, as well. I am glad there are so many choices! : )

      Have a terrific weekend!

    • Thank you Marie!

      I appreciate it! I love that hedgehog shirt, too. I wear it way too much! : )

      Have a beautiful week!


    • Thank you so much! I bought mine on sale. I could not believe how quickly they sold out.

      I think they all ended up on eBay. : (

      Thank you for stopping by and your sweet words. I hope you find your owl sweater!

      Have a fantastic Friday!
