Tribal Print, Zebra Print and Pure Yumminess

"You are my yummy girls,"
I told Princess Sparkles and Pigtails as we sat on the couch.
"No," Pigtails replied.  "You're not eating me!"
I laughed and planted a big juicy one on that delicious cheek!

TRIBAL PRINT RACERBACK - Macys (gifted)

ANIMAL PRINT PLATFORMS - GoJane
ZEBRA PLEATED SKIRT - By Spiryt (Anonymous)

CORAL WOOD BEADED NECKLACE - Made by my mom

Monday's Inspiration - Kate Bosworth

This week I'm participating in "Fashion Challenge: This or That Trends" from Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki.  Because I don't blog everyday, I thought I'd try putting a couple of the trends together - solid brights, bold prints, tribal prints and platforms!  I got this colorful top from a friend for my birthday.  I love the beaded details on the neckline.  The jeans were on sale at Urban Outfitters and they fit so comfortably!  The platforms are JC knock-offs from GoJane and they give me 4-5 more inches. 

Here's another outfit I wore for "Inspiration Monday" too from the lovely ladies at Two Birds.  It's a zebra pleated midi skirt and my favorite t-shirt brand, Alternative Apparel.  The necklace was another wonderful gift from my mom, who handmade it!

Camouflage feeds our yummy girls a yummy peach.

I love doing fashion challenges and inspiration link-ups because they inspire me to wear my clothes in different ways.  I really enjoy wearing bold colors and prints, especially tribal ones!  They're just so darn yummy!
