Awesome August : Day 2

Giraffes are one of my most favourite animals ever.  If you ever are in a situation where your life or thousands of dollars depends on knowing how I feel about giraffes, for the record I find them majestic.  And have you ever seen them fight? Damn!

I think my love of giraffes comes from these wooden giraffe statues my mom has and this painted giraffe art I've had in my room since I was a baby... But I had no idea so many people were on board with this giraffe love.  For example, I recently acquired a Kate Spade iPhone case that has giraffes on it!

Boyfriend once got me a book called "Giraffes? Giraffes!" by Dr. Doris Haggis-on-Whey, which documents the history of Giraffes.  This is the best book of all time and you should read it right now.

So, including the iPhone case that I carry with me all the time, I had 3 giraffe things in my outfit today.

The earrings were another birthday gift from Bear.  They are made of wood ad so light I can't even tell that I'm wearing earrings.

This amazing giraffe shirt was passed on to me by my dear friend Indiana, who I was lucky enough to spend a few hours with last week.  Indiana and I went to college together, but hadn't seen each other in 3 years!  We walked around our old stomping ground catching up, talking about The Lord of the Rings, and marveling over the fact that she has a baby now!  And then in our typical way, I left and drove an hour and a half home with her wallet in my purse, which she needed for her 5:00am flight the next morning.  But in between all that craziness, she gave me this much admired shirt.  It's adorable and probably would be even if it wasn't covered with giraffes!

So, I know Indiana loves animal clothes and accessories, and as you can see, I'm a sucker for giraffes (and I still have a new giraffe scarf to rock soon).  Do you like animal print or animal inspired designs? What animal do you love enough to base an entire outfit on?

PS.  Please excuse the amazingly grainy photo booth pictures...
