Yet More Animal-y Outfits

"Fishy Monday (Brought to You by Lands End)"--Monday, 2/27/17

In searching out a Reverse Inspiration for this outfit, I discovered that there is a website devoted to helping shoppers locate the garments (or similar ones) that actors wear on television.  Like this one worn by a character (Haley) on a show I've kind of heard of (Modern Family).

Meanwhile at chez Sally, I went with the easy mixing of two Lands End garments, tied together (hahaha) by a Target scarf.

Drapey cobalt cardigan (Lands End), $3.75/wear
Coral red dress (Lands End), $6.75/wear
Red/white/blue fish scarf (Target), $1.33/wear
Black leggings
Tall black boots by Fitzwell, $2.10/wear

Outfit total: $13.93/wear

I think the fish were disappointed to discover that the "coral" in this outfit was only the particular shade of red.

"Velvet Leopard"--Tuesday, 2/28/17

In this outfit from last April, grey animal print + pink are a nice spring combination, lightening up the black trousers.

Although I couldn't make pink shoes work even with the higher-than-typical temperatures in Coldville this week, I think the velvet blazer makes quite a statement.  And while the dark grey reflects today's gloomy overcast skies, the bright pink represents...well, I would like to say "my cheerful mood" but don't let's be silly.

Grey leopard top (JNY), $4.08/wear
Bright pink velvet blazer (thrifted, Old Navy), $2.33/wear
Dark grey skirt (Walmart), $1.50/wear
Grey polka dot tights
Tall grey boots by LifeStride, $5.88/wear
Grey/black/red birds scarf (gift)

Outfit total: $13.79/wear

And of course I ended up almost completely obscuring my shirt with this cute printed scarf.  The pink-red color of the birds is interesting--depending on what color it's next to, it can take on many different shades...which turns out to be a quite useful quality.

And so ends the official "Winter" season in my sartorial calendar.  Starting tomorrow, "Winter/Spring."  It's exciting, y'all.

This assiduously self-cleaning rabbit demonstrates the pleasing quality of grey with a pop of pink...and the importance of good grooming habits.

In other news...They fixed an oil something-or-other sensor on my car today but are keeping it until Thursday so they can drive it and make sure everything is operating normally.  So that's good.  Another good thing--my health insurance came through in completely covering the cost of the gum biopsy from the "weirdly growing gum" incident a few months ago.

And for an extra bonus good news feel good, check out this roundup of wholesome things that happened on Twitter.

My favorite is the dog who went out and got a pine come for her sad owner. The dog has such a sweet expression.

Yes indeed.

It's hard to pick a favorite but I think I will go with the engagement photo. The reaction of the lady watching it was priceless, and I thought her ability to be so happy for two (presumably) strangers was awesome.
