Morning all. How was your past week?
Nearing the end of August now, and it's definitely starting to feel like Autumn/fall is just around the corner with slightly cooler mornings and mushrooms popping up in the garden!
This month the ladies of the Style not Age collective are going wild - Wild about Animal Print!
Emma has bestowed the never-go-out-of-fashion element for our latest challenge, and rather happy I was with this task. I think animal print is rather like Marmite - you either love it or hate it!
Having come a long way since the days of Coronation Street barmaid Bet Lynch donning leopard print "anything" - with the arrival of the more subtle prints such as zebra, giraffe & snakeskin.
As you may already know I love wearing dresses, and tend to wear them a lot. So it's nice to find a dress that can be transformed from casual to dressy just by adding different appendages. For this challenge I opted for heels, but fancy trying baseball pumps and a jumper for a basic relaxed feel.
My middle daughter took these photos for me and I'm so pleased how they've turned out. We nipped into the grounds of the local golf course, worried we might have been turfed out. As you can see we managed to get the shots without being seen - must have been hidden from sight by my animal print dress - ROAR!
Emma picked this months theme, thanks Emma what a great choice! Her leopard skirt and black jumper, boots and tights make for a super Autumnal outfit - you're one step ahead of the game Emma!
Here's what Anna decided to wear for the challenge. Liking her graphic Tee over the leopard trousers - something different. She's on the prowl for our applause - well I think she deserves it - don't you?
You can see that Hilda has chosen well, her outfit is full of different animal prints. She really has taken the bull by the horns to win the trophy for this challenge!
Hope you'll work some animal magic into your outfits for the coming months - it's a fashion statement that's most definitely here to stay!
Have a super Bank Holiday. Catch you on Thursday for #chicandstylish #link party.
Thanks Emily for the photos. X
Until then cheerio. X
