Animal Print for the Office

Those who have known me forever (Hi Mom!) know that leopard print has always been a staple in my life – not just my wardrobe. I’ve had leopard print bedspreads, towels, sheets, rugs, curtains, desk ornaments, trash cans, pencils… you name it. I was/am obsessed. As you can imagine, I am stoked to see that animal prints are all the rage for fall. Although this is a little more like a cheetah print, and therefore easier to pull off, I was a little anxious to wear this cardigan to my conservative-leaning office, but it was well received!

I’m also surprised that I can still rock this dress. My dad bought it for me YEARS ago to wear when I was inducted into the National Honor Society my sophomore year of high school (eek – about seven years ago, I feel old!). It used to be too form fitting to wear to the office, but the fabric has slacked with age, making for a much more appropriate look. I’d wear it on a warmer day because it’s quite light and airy. I think it would work well as a basic interview piece, too.

What do you think – will you be trying animal print this fall?

  1. Love this look! That cardigan is great, and the dress is so flattering on you!

  2. I have to admit, I’m really not into animal prints very much. But, this cardigan looks great on you and I think it’s VERY office appropriate! It’s a small enough print in neutral colors that it doesn’t immediately call attention to itself.

    And that dress is from HS?! Very impressive that you still have it!
