Animal Prints

Animal print is my favorite color. I consider it a neutral, and like great neutrals, an animal print can be added to most outfits. But my love of animal prints has moved on from leopard and cheetah prints to prints featuring the silhouettes and images of the animals themselves. Here are some literal animal prints that I want for late summer/fall. 



elephant print leggings, Urban Outfitters legging $39

If you pay that much for leggings, does it automatically qualify them as pants?


elephant print scarf, Gap, $29.95

I love elephants. 



Zebra scarf, ModCloth, $23.99

I got this scarf for Christmas, but I love it times a million. 



Penguin dress, Lulu’s, $31



Ram bangle, J.Crew, $95

I was just in Arizona (my first time out west outside of a couple visits to California and one time in Denver) and the harsh beauty of the desert really took me by surprise. I’m so used to seeing the green, tall trees of the midwest, and the changing colors of this time of year, but the dusty reds and pinks of the mountains around Phoenix, and the rarity of the green cacti was so unlike what I’m used to. That landscape brought to mind what it must have been like for the first settlers out there, how everything felt like it was on a much larger scale.

The colors and history of the west reminded me of how much I love the native american patterns that Pendleton uses. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pieces.

Classic wool blanket.

I wish this came in women’s sizes. I love the American-ness (if that’s a word) of the denim jacket combined with the Chief Joseph print.

The silver dollar buttons are my favorite part of this jacket. I just wish it was a little more fitted, then it would be perfect for fall.

Perfect. This is the duster length coat of this print. You would have to feel like a trailblazer in this coat. It’s a go anywhere and do anything kind of piece.
