Typical shopping trips that include my dad typically end with us leaving the stores sooner than my mom and I would normally leave. Man-shopping (also known as knowing what you’re going to the store for, getting it, and leaving without so much as glancing at the center displays) is not my specialty. However, Dad, I will forgive you for wanting to impose man-shopping on our trip yesterday because you found a tripod for my camera for $2.50! All is well in my house today. Here’s the breakdown:

Striped Tee: Old Navy
Jeans: Garage sale (H&M)
Flats: Old Navy
Earrings: Peebles/Garage sale
Scarf: Gift
Ring: Banana Republic
Brooch: My grandma's 

I typically tend to keep an eye out for specific items I want each season, and a leopard scarf was one of them. I’d seen a few, but they all looked…not scarf-like. So when I was shopping with my mom at Macy’s before Christmas and saw this scarf, my mom bought it for me for Christmas (thanks, Mom!). It’s warm and fuzzy just like a real leopard, as I’m sure a real leopard would lay on my neck like that. Kidding, of course. Let’s just say I love it so much that I wore it with my pajamas on Christmas morning. You’ll never take the leopard off of the girl!
