Top c/o OASAP | Pants: Madewell | Wedges: Blowfish Shoes | Ring: INPink Jewelry | Belt: Target | Headband: Forever 21

This blouse is taking the word animal print to a whole new level.  It’s literally a blouse full of cute little panda bears and I am in love… and so is Austin.  We have a few panda bear rattle toys that were Austin’s very first toys from when he was a newborn.  He’d follow them with his eyes as babies love contrast in colors (black/white).  So in the game of one upping my husband in trying to get Austin to giggle, I decided to become a life size toy for Austin.  Did it work?  Maybe.  But just wearing this blouse puts me in a happy go lucky mood.

Also, after much contemplating, I finally made the plunge to get some yellow skinnies and I’m so glad I did.  These Madewell beauties are the softest pants ever.

What animal print tops do you own (we’re not talking leopard spots or zebra stripes here)?

P.S. Have you entered The Sasse Life necklace and ad space giveaway yet?  How about the B.A.I.T. Footwear Joanna shoe giveaway?

    AHH! I saw my first real pandas in Taiwan just a few weeks ago. They were SO cute. I have a new love for panda bears! Have you ever seen the red panda??

    So so jealous of your panda bear top!!! I am loving the sheerness and flowyness of it! I love pandas too. I love bird print, but I would love a cat print or bear print top!

    I very nearly bought a top last week at Ragstock that had cute birds all over it but I went with a dress instead. Darn!

    Seriously such a cute top! It’s only made better by the fact it’s covered in pandas. You have such a unique sense of style Sandy, I love it.

    The Madewell skinnies are wonderful — very figure flattering. And love the panda print, so fun and whimsical, and so cool that it’s blue, black woulda been too predictable. I own no animal print, panda/leopard or otherwise :(. The only patterns I have are flowers or dots

    I love the yellow skinnies, great decision to buy them! The navy blue blouse is the perfect complementary colour to your jeans and there’s nothing wrong with cute animal print. I recently saw a top at Zara with cats all over it and almost died from its cuteness!

    At first look, I thought you’re wearing a white polka dotted top but it was pandas! I have a gray sheer top with birds from Pacsun last summer. I still love it.
