Animal Lover

I've always been afraid of wearing animal prints, worried of looking ridiculous or trying too hard. I had the attitude that animal prints belonged only on your undergarments, and to be worn only in the bedroom. Well, I must say that I've changed my attitude, and animal prints should be worn to be seen!  

Key is to wear only ONE item.  Personally, I only like a splash of leopard in an outfit, and don't care for animal print jackets or pants. You should never be head to toe in animal print, unless you want to appear as a guest on Jersey Shore.  

Key is to keep other clothing pieces simple with solid colors. Here, mom Jessica Alba wears a Tolani leopard scarf, and it gives her jeans and t-shirt ensemble the perfect amount of pop. (Tolani Infinity Scarf in Leopard, $80.00

These designer leopard print items below are easy ways to add glam to any mom's outfit. The scarf is an instant way to make an outfit chic (see previous post on scarves), cuffs and bangles are practical jewelry pieces for moms, and spice up those "mom" shoes with these comfortable options.  Oh, and all these designer pieces are under $80!
