a giraffe and some flowers

I don't know when it was, but I dreamed up this outfit some time ago. What kept me from wearing it was deciding what shoes to wear. After what happened Monday, I thought, what better shoes to wear with my giraffe sweater than the ones that make me feel like a baby giraffe? [I actually didn't feel like one today because I remembered to put heel grips in my shoes. Hooray for becoming an adult giraffe!]

Somehow the first day I wear these tights, I manage to ruin them. It's a shame because it took so long for me to wear them because I really liked them. Go figure that when I finally do wear them, they fall apart. Maybe it's a sign that I really do need this giraffe scarf after all. 




Sweater: Banana Republic [option, splurge]
Floral Shirt: Old Navy [option]
Skirt: (c/o mom-in-law) The Limited [option]
Tights: The Limited [option, option]
Heels: Chinese Laundry via Macy's [similar]

  1. Shut the front door. I love giraffes and need that Target giraffe scarf, and at 5'9", I also feel like a giraffe in any kind of high heel. This post was made for me!

  2. Yes, you need the scarf. I really like the combination of purple and navy. Too bad my closet has like two purple pieces. I just remembered that I have a purple dress. Ooo, ideas! :)

  5. This just makes me wonder why I still don't have a fun graphic animal sweater... And also I need to wear my purple pencil skirt soon.

  6. Oh gosh, I need that scarf, too! I just love this sweater every time you wear it. I'm tempted to try a freezer paper stencil on one of my striped tees to get a giraffe shirt.

  11. Your giraffe sweater is SO cute! I'm also loving the color of your purple skirt. It's so bold and seems like it would be such a versatile piece!

    1. whoops-- I forgot to mention this skirt was a gift from my mother-in-law, but it has proven to be incredibly versatile. Maybe the next time I wear it, I'll put together a collage of all the ways I've worn it!

  12. You know I love this Outfit not just because it is super cute but because it is very much you. As I have told you many times before and even mentioned on your blog, you always rock sweaters with collared shirts underneath. This sweater is great and the first time you wore it, I re-created that Outfit as you know. As a matter of fact that Outfit with the Hot Pink Pants reminds me very much of this one, but this is a Bright-Colored Skirt instead.

  13. that scarf is too cute! the print is subtle enough that it may just look abstract from far away and not like a giant giraffe wrapped around your neck, so i say go for it! then again, i love the giant giraffe on your sweater so maybe that reasoning doesn't make much sense. bring on the animals! and of course i love the button-down and pencil skirt, definitely my favorite combination by far. you look great!
