What can I say? I love pencil skirts and I love leopard. IF. it. Is. Done. Well. How many of us have seen some cheap looking leopard prints? I think everyone can wear leopard it just had to be a nice quality of leopard. THis skirt is jaquard and I bought it last year from one of my Fav stores, Ann Taylor.
This was just one of those days we headed to Firebirds near our mall to have a little lunch and some half prices martinis. I love the Cucumber Martini and the Pineapple Martini. We were out there taking pictures after lunch when a security guard came over looking quite serious. She wondered if my husband was a professional photographer and what was the nature of our business? I thought, I never had this happen before? ! They seemed to want to know if we were taking picures of the mall itself, or the building. I told her I had a blog, and she used her walkie talky to convey this information. After that, I felt kind of wierd. What are ya gonna do! I suppose anyone with an SLR camera looks suspicious, or if they ask every kid that takes a cell phone picture about photographs.
Anyhow, we went closer to the trees away from the building, no problem.
I was in the mood for leopard print, and I loved this jacquard print from Ann Taylor last year. It caught my eye when I saw it in the window. Love that the print it flowers and leopard within. I bet any money that Alice, Happiness at Midlife has this as well! We both like Ann Taylor!! I bought the shoes from Ebay, and loved the vintage look with the square toe and large bow. Very 50s/60s to me. THe cardigan is from Ann Taykor, and it is shorter, but I like that I would wear a shorter or even a cropped sweater with a higher pencil skirt. I love brooches, and have a penchant for finding antique or unique ones from Etsy. I bought this one however with it’s checks a nd then copper feathers. THe copper feathers stood out to me! I love structured bags, but once in awhile I like to carry a light or clutch bag if I don’t feel like carrying alot. That was the case today.
Enjoy the rest of your week!!
