the jaguar pant.

it's tempting to want to pair animal prints with black, because it's a sure thing. for those who are still easing their way into animal prints, it's safe. and on days when i don't have time to put too much thought into what i'm wearing, i also reach for black. but if you really want to add oomph to your outfit, go for color. any color. i've proven that you can even wear navy with leopard. some of my all-time favorite color pairings are with red (here) and emerald (here). today i'm pairing these jaguar print pants from Patty's Closet with hot pink. yeeeeow!

even though i'm working on this martin luther king, jr. holiday, a great weekend was had. i spent most of it hanging out at the beach house + a baby shower...which translates to lots of good eats. however, i did manage to get in a couple workouts, too. btw, i'm keeping track of my workouts via dailymile; you can view the latest at the bottom of my sidebar. eventually that and other fitness/marathon related news will be moved to its own page.
if you're on dailymile, holla!

what's your favorite animal print combination?
how was your weekend?

a sports-themed diaper cake, my neighbor's cute s'mores in a pan idea, and lots of coffee for the chilly evenings at the beach house.

  2. You are so right. There is hardly a color I can think of that doesn't go with leopard. I love the hot pink! I am also a fan of orange and green with leopard.

  14. With $500 I would pay bills and do repairs...thank you for the giveaway. You look gorgeous as always. The pink goes well with the jaguar print pants. I have never been a big S'mores fan. Hahaha, it always reminds me of the scene in The Sandlot, where he offers Smalls a S'more and he says how can I have more if I have not had any...You're killin me, Smalls! Hahahahaha!

  17. I love those pants, such a great print, and they look awesome on ya. I'm really fond of a grey snake print with forest green, and zebra print with basically anything bright. But I like bright colours :P

  18. I avoid animal prints and there's not a single piece in my closet. But I have to admit sometimes I like it. These pants rock and the print is very cool! The weekend? It was a long time ago. Haha.
