Black, Red and Purrrrrr

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring.

What do you wear when you know you’ll have to don your animal print rainboots? 


Why, red skinny jeans and a black top, of course!


Shirt: Forever 21 (old); Pants: Joe Fresh (old); Boots: Wal-Mart (old)

I’ve pinned this color combination enough times to know that it works. Thanks Pinterest!

I personally like both color and texture in my closet. I was wandering around the store having to use up a store credit on the spot when I noticed this lonely sweater. Either someone had left it on the wrong rack or it really was the last in stock. Either way, it played out like this in the changing room: Hmmm, the sleeves are a bit short… I could push them up and make it a 3/4… I’ve never worn something like this… could be interesting… (try on other clothes. try this sweater on again) Ok. I think I’ll take it seeing as it’s only $10… My chance paid off because I now love love love it. It takes the ordinary and makes it a fun and interesting top.


What do you do when the clouds break and the sun comes through half way through the day?

Why, you switch your animal print rainboots for your animal print flats, of course.


Did you notice my polish? I used Essie’s No Place Like Chrome (I know I’m late to the party on this color!)

I scored these awesome Sperry Top-Sider shoes last year on-line. I was so excited to wear them when I got them and in hind-sight, I had good reasons. They have become my new neutral pair.


(Similar/Nordstrom, Similar/eBay, Similar/Von Maur)

I decided to wear them yesterday, a beautiful fall Monday, while my daughter Emma and I ran around the city trying to renew my passport.  I wore them with a pair of Rich and Skinny jeans I found via eBay and a top I picked up at Winners (that’s TJ Maxx for my American readers). I added some ‘edge’ by wearing this chain necklace and similarly-crafted earrings.


I’m sorry for the picture. I’m still trying to figure out the best way to self-photograph when my husband’s away on business. Stay with me, please!

I appreciate the comfort and style of these shoes and how they complimented this outfit. It made a “Monday Mom-day” a bit more fashionable (I quite like that name! Maybe it will become a thing…)

Does your shoe closet have a pair of animal print shoe? Have you joined this trend in other ways?
