look book: the birds

January 24, 2012

I love this new trend in "animal" prints. There are the cutest blouses and dresses with ducks, elephants, even horses, floating about that remind us these prints aren't just for little ones under 5.  I love this top with the birds and every time I look down I can't help but smile! Now if only they could teach me how to fly :)    
blouse c/o Simply Audrey, shorts c/o 11 Eureka, clutch Heather Belle, shoes Guess {similar}, ring Martine Wester, necklaces Poshlocket and MyNameNecklace

Our temperamental LA weather this weekend had me in shorts one day and rainboots the next. 
Kind of ridiculous but it satisfied my desire to both relax and get errands done!

  6. Sounds like a challenge getting dressed each day with weather being that variable!

    You look lovely though :) Love the scallop edge on the shorts, I juts bought some Chloe sunglasses with a gold scalloped edge detail. I love them.

  30. I like this trend a lot too, although I haven't jumped on it yet and added any new pieces to my wardrobe that encompass it. I have to say, although the focus of this post was on the blouse, I am a huge fan of those shorts! The scalloped edge is too cute. And I also LOVE the ring.
