Trend Spin Week 9 - Animal Print

 






Yay, it's Tuesday and I'm done taking my certification exam!!  I'm not sure how I did; it was 4 hours and was a tough exam.  I'm work in credit, and there was a lot of legal terminology and procedures on the exam.  Half of the exam was involving things that I don't do in my current position, but I tried my best.  Either way, it's over for now, and grad school doesn't start back for 1 month, woohoo!  I still can't believe August is only a couple of days ago.  Where has this summer (year) gone?!  We had 3 days last week that have been in the lower 80's.  It has been a strange year temperature wise.  I got out yesterday to pump my gas and almost thought it was fall with the way it felt outside.  It's makes for some nice nights out on a patio at a restaurant or a screened in patio. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup with The Fashion Canvas and myself!  First of all, I want to thank everyone who has been linking up.  I appreciate it so, so much and also respond back to every person via email who is a reply commenter (make sure you are by doing this.)  If you are set up as a no-reply commenter, you don't get any of my responses delivered to you.  = (  If you linkup today, I would absolutely love for you to leave me a comment so I can thank you for stopping by!  = )  Today's trend is animal print!  I just recently got my animal print clutch, and sadly it is the only item I have that is animal print!  Sad, I know!  I did wear an elephant bracelet; does that count?  Show us how you wear it - a pair of flats, a bow in your hair, a bow print dress or an entire outfit. It doesn't matter what clothing item it is or where it's from; we'd love to see it. Here are our top 2 bow looks from last week!

I'm also in awe that it's almost August. This year has flown by. I'm sure you did great on the exam! I need to get some animal print in my wardrobe. I have NONE. Crazy, right?!

Annick said...

Thanks for the link up! Loving the long necklace you're wearing - I've been kind of obsessed with long necklaces lately! And clutches are such a nice way to add animal print to a look! Looking great Laura! :)

I love that clutch! Sometimes all you need is just a touch of animal print. You look fantastic!

Raquelita said...

If I could only have 1 animal print item, I think that clutch would work just perfectly- I love it's pattern and that it folds. And I am obsessed with your elephant bracelet- so adorable, I'm prettyyyy sure I need it!
I'll be linking up tomorrow- love this week's looks so far!!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I don't think I own ANY animal print. Is that weird? I don't hate animal print, I've just never found anything that's drawn me to it I guess.

Chelsea said...

I love that you decided to go with little animal print accents! Loving that clutch Laura.
