How Many Animals Is Too Many?

Bees! Flies! Elephants! Snakes! Oh my!

I started out with the snake belt (I wish I had taken a better pic, b/c it has a cute gold head and tail that make the buckle). And then I added the elephant necklace. After the bee earrings came into the picture, I went on a mission to find my fly ring b/c 3 creates in an outfit is weird, but 4 is a theme! ha!

did the bees and the fly want to play around in the flowers from your skirt all day?

Kathryn said...

I love that the bees and flies came into an outfit with such a lovely skirt. I also love the way that you document the food you ate. A few days ago you added points too. Can you continue doing that? Maybe for each food item- or maybe I'm asking too much.

The shoes!! You didn't mention where they were from and they are awesome! Also, you know I am a fan of the skirt since I have it too!

Christy Sews said...

I just adore that skirt and the jewelry? Gorgeous.

Brooke said...

Love the colors in that skirt, and how you kept the top part simple to let the skirt shine.

Sheila said...

What a gorgeous skirt! I would totally buy that. You have just the right number of animals - that jungle-y print in the skirt makes me imagine them all crawling out to turn into your accessories.

I love "When Harry Met Sally". :)

Kari said...

What a beautiful outfit, Tina. You are SO skilled at taking patterned skirt and adding little pops of color all over the outfit that echo the colors in the skirt - I'm always impressed at how well you do this. I love the cute animal theme too.
