. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Mystery Animal

August 14, 2012

Mystery Animal


jeans: Target  wedges: Target  tank: jcpenny 

I've shared my obsession with animal printed things a month or so ago and
some of you seemed to be confused when I shared my liking for the bird shirt I bought this summer. 
While I like birds on my shirt, I don't actually love birds, nor do I want real birds around me. 
Real birds are gross and dirty.  Birds on shirts are cute and fashionable, right? 
I sure hope so because I just bought another bird printed blouse this week. 


And while I love this animal shirt I probably don't love the actual animal.
But I'm sure sure because I don't know what this animal is.
a dog? a bull? 
I don't know. But I like it. 


Beyond my excitement for animal prints, 
I'm also really excited to share that I will now be accepting sponsors starting in September.
You can check out more details here.

I'd be SO happy to have you on my blog!

I really love that bird shirt too. I just love anything with birds on it; especially owls. I'm a little obsessed.

I have to laugh - I actually have a pretty severe bird phobia. So this seemingly neverending bird trend? Hate it. I do love your dog/bull/farm animal shirt, though! :)

I love animal prints too- even birds! super cute top!

This is such a cute shirt, and it looks amazing with those red jeans.

Bethany Reine' said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

1. i don't like birds either. i've been pooped on by too many birds and they gross me out. bird shirts are another story though and totally cute!

2. i like your hair dark. going darker for fall and winter is always a fun thing to do!

3. i don't like dogs either, but i LOVE that top!! might have to go see if i can find one in my local jcp :)

lori said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates
