ANIMAL INSTINCTS

There is a lot going on in this outfit and I love it. There’s a bear on my shirt and my skirt has a tiger print and then my shoes with pretty much every primary color on it with python detail on it. Even though there’s so much to this outfit I feel like it all complements each other well together. I bought this tee at Zara’s end of season sale a couple of years ago and got so excited when I saw it. The image seems like of one you’d find in a hunting shirt that’s sold in sporting and hunting stores because of it’s realistic look instead of the pop art version we tend to see in fashion shirts. What also sold me on this shirt was the silver ball details it has on the neckline that make it seem like it’s a necklace. The juxtaposition of the femininity of the jeweled neckline and the masculinity of the bear is perfection. For this particular skirt I was in the hunt for a basic grey cotton sweatshirt to tone down a bit the sexiness of the skirt so it will be more daytime friendly.  Well this is more easy said than done. For me personally I can by fashion statement pieces left and right without too much question, well it’s way different for basic pieces since I am extremely picky and selective on these. To this date I still haven’t found one. That’s how this combination came about, I wanted to wear this skirt and when my heart is set on a garment then I HAVE to wear it so I saw the shirt and thought “eh why not.” To add more animalistic vibes to the outfit I wore these multi-colors suede sandals with python detail on the back and heel. I bought these during Saks killer end of season sale when everything was already marked down two or three times so I scored these at over 65% off. They’re a fun pop of color. Now since there is a lot going on to finish up the look I chose the epic all mighty backpack from Chanel.
