What I’m Wearing: Subtly Mixed Animal Accents

I told you yesterday how embarrassed I was about having the appetite of a 13-year-old boy this past weekend (it included Doritos and Snickers, just to refresh your memory). But I have another embarrassing moment to share with you: Friday night, while singing and dancing around my living room to the *NSYNC Pandora station (best station ever, in case you were wondering), I somehow sprained my big left toe. Talk about painful! Bending it was nearly impossible, and by Saturday morning, walking on it was completely out of the question.

Fortunately, after a few days of rest, it’s feeling a little better, but I’ve still been steering clear of heels anytime I leave the house. So today, I pulled out my favorite flats—suede and pointy-toed with a gold leopard brooch on the toe—and some black jeans to go with them. And since I was already wearing one animal-related item, why not throw on an animal print with it? Which is exactly what I did with this sheer zebra-print button down. Sticking with a white, black + gold palette, I added a few simple accessories, like a big (snakeskin) cuff and teardrop earrings.

You don’t see it here, but I also threw on a leopard-print scarf and gloves for my chilly walk outside. Too much animal print? Never! The subtle, sheer print on the white button down is basically a neutral, so it’s simple to mix a few other toned-down prints—animal or not—into the ensemble.

What are your tricks for mixing different prints and statement pieces?
