Zebra View Lookbook








Zara Zebra Top (similar)  |  Ribbed Tank Dress (similar)  |  Gucci Bag  |  Christian Louboutin Pumps  |

Kenneth Jay Lane Necklace  |  Forever 21 Chain & Suede Bracelet  |  Earrings (our own design)

As mentioned in my previous post, Summer Love Lookbook, my husband explored Chicago this weekend.  Brunch both Saturday and Sunday, drinks at a couple of rooftop bars and the walkway by the Adler Planetarium, which has the most amazing view of Chicago.  Gorgeous day and gorgeous view all in one!  Isn’t it pretty?  We thought it was also the perfect picture spot.  

If you have been following my blog, my looks change based on how I feel that day.  I love color and have quite a bit of it, but with the trend of animal prints coming back for fall, I thought I would show a summer zebra look.  Under my zebra top is one of the best purchases I made, the ribbed tank dress!   It is slimming and can be worn alone, with any top over it making it skirt or as a fitted slip.  I was actually searching for something to go under a dress that was slightly see through and slips don’t work with my dresses and found this tank dress.  I purchased it in black and nude; the nude color works under so many dresses.  To add color, my Kenneth Jay Lane necklace was a great accessory.  My husband purchased it for me as a X’mas present a couple years ago and I love the colors.  

Animal prints are my favorite trend coming back.  So excited to pull out some leopard items in my wardrobe as well as purchase more :).  This zebra tank will look great with my black leggings and a leather jacket for Fall. Have you purchased any fabulous animal printed items lately?

P.S. Been trying to keep up the blog but with launching our jewelry website soon, I’m a bit swamped.  Look out Friday or Monday for our big announcement!

    Can't wait for the jewellery website! What a great idea, a tank dress! I have a few dresses that I don't wear since they are slightly see through or you can see panty lines so these would be perfect!Ummm..without sounding creepy you have amazing legs! LOL!! hopefully that's ok for me to say since you know who I am ;)

    I like that you added a pop of color with the necklace. It's a nice touch. I am excited about animal prints for fall too. One of the items I'm coveting is this Faux Fur Jacket in Animal print by Tulle http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=71097&vid=1&pid=888873&scid=888873022
