Welcome to My Jungle!

Apparently, I have a “thing” for animal prints. I’ve always been drawn to the zebra pattern, which I notice all of the time in home decor magazines. Just a little hint here and there, nothing over the top. Trust me, I know animal prints can get cheesy, but I don’t go that far (I hope!). The other day, I pulled out little plates to use for brownies, and noticed they were zebra print…and then went into my studio and noticed my file folders are zebra print…This led to me thinking about how many things I own that are animal patterned and I decided to go on a hunt today into the wild (my house) and show you some fun things!
{1} Giraffe Print Peep Toes (I love to look at these, but never have worn!)
{2} Zebra Themed Jack-N-Jill Bathroom (T & K’s)
{3} Zebra Print Top (in the event I need to dress professionally)
{4} Cheetah Print Lamp (sits on the desk area of the kitchen, LOVE)
{1} Zebra Suede Chairs (my prized possession from my mother-in-law)
{2} Zebra Dessert Plates (brownies seem even yummier on a cute plate!)
{3} Leopard Print Betseyville Bag (fave for Vegas)
{4} File Folders in my craft room (love zebra with green)
{1} Leopard Print Jacket (bought for a Vegas trip last year at Forever 21)
{2} Zebra Purse (LOVE it, from my purse party last year)
{3} Zebra Silk Headband (very stylish, wear if I’m feeling sassy)
{4} Our pet, ZeeZee (we keep her at the zoo!) Kidding…
Have a great day & GO WILD!

    FUN fun!
    I bought a zebra duvet from PB Teen for Cale's big boy room! Sort of a jungle theme with colors inspired by you!!!!

    What are you waiting for? You MUST wear those shoes!!!

  3. Heather says:

    I think you should definitely wear the shoes this fall!

  4. Chris @ Celebrations At Home says:

    LOL! I could have written this exact post…and nearly the same pics!! I love a zebra & cheetah print too. I have a zebra purse, shoes, blouse, chair, plate, pillow, small rug…I could go on. But like you said, "small doses" at a time. Just one more thing for me to love about you ; D

    Oh Kim, I LOVE {and WANT} it all!! You have amazing taste! 🙂

  6. Brittany says:

    Those shoes are the best! You have to wear them come fall! So cute with jeans and a simple black top!

  7. Joanna says:

    I love everything about this post! You HAVE to wear those shoes!

  8. Laura says:

    I love the shoes!!

  9. Live.Love. Photography says:

    They would look cute with jeans. But if they aren't flip flops Kimmi doesn't wear them! AND she doesn't wear jeans. Poor shoes. What size are they? I'll take them!

    Okay, so I do LIVE in flip flops and dresses when it's hot. We live in AZ, so it's REALLY hot most of the year! However when it gets cold (that means 60 degrees here) I DO wear jeans and shoes….sometimes.

    I'm thinking the shoes would look just fine with a simple black dress and fun accessories. Your thoughts?

    I promise when I have somewhere fun to go I WILL where them and take a pic to post to prove it! Hmmmm….family picture perhaps?

    PS. Did I tell you that I bought them at TARGET last year?
