More Zebra Stripes!

I got these shoes on sale. You see, I bought a pair of boots and was $4 shy of the “free orders over $50” special. Instead of paying $7 to ship my boots, I paid $8 for these shoes and got free shipping. So really, the shoes were $1. Proof that I can justify any purchase!

I wore them with dark denim and a red top for a casual look.

Necklace: eBay

Oddly, I forget where I ordered these shoes. After all the calculations and planning, the store name escapes me. I’ve been wearing all the things in my closet so getting use of my shoes is important. That’s why I got dressed from the feet up!

Hot Pink and Zebra Stripes

I love zebra print and I especially like mixing it with hot pink so today I wore a 3/4-length fuchsia top with a black skirt and carried a zebra-print bag.

Top: Thrifted
Skirt: People Like Frank via thrifted
Boots: Hot Topic
Bag: Boodlebags

I love this bag. It’s handmade in Seattle and it’s waterproof! Perfect for rainy, Washington State. Boodlebags are made of coated fabric and come in all sorts of patterns and styles.

Cropped Pants and a Zebra Bag

I’ve worn these pants a lot, but usually rolled up into capris (sometimes tucked into boots). Today I decided to wear them down for a cropped look. When I wear cropped pants, I think of Audrey Hepburn. I kept the look from shortening me by wearing a heel. Also, I find a narrow silhouette is better than a wide cropped pant if you’re going for height.

Top: H&M
Pants: Bluenotes
Belt: Sears
Cuff: Greenbelts
Shoes: Timberland
Bag: Boodlebags

I can’t believe I haven’t shown you this bag yet! I bought it at an Etsy craft show this past spring. I use it a lot, but not always when I’m taking outfit pictures. Boodlebags are American made (right here in Washington, actually). They’re durable, practical, water-resistant, and best of all, cute!

I find that I can wear this zebra print with any solid outfit, no matter what colors I’m wearing. It’s roomy enough for my Kindle, phone, wallet and snacks. The exterior is coated fabric so it wipes clean. The interior is hot pink with a separate compartment for keys, etc. I can wear it across my body or as a regular purse.
