Feeling Catty

Based on what I'm reading across the interwebs, I know I'm not the only one who's got a bad case of jungle fever. You know what I mean... a desire to own everything with an animal print.

I picked up this top from Alloy this summer. And yeah, I know it's a site for teens, but 32 is the new 16, right? The thing I love about this top is the bow tie at the top (which you can't see here, grr) and the cut of the sleeves, which allow it to flutter a bit. 

This was also the last photo shoot at my old office location. Today is our first day in Boston (woo hoo!) so I'll need to find a new spot to take outfit photos. I'll also need to mentally prepare for creepers, unless you know any good spots around the Common/State House that don't get a lot of foot traffic. Apart from the creepers, I have a serious question for you city commuters. How do you balance fashion and comfort when walking to/fro the T? Do you wear your heels around the city? Or do you wear a pair of flats and switch to heels at the office? I'm struggling with this concept, and appreciate any insights/thoughts.

All right, I'm off to navigate my first commute as a city dweller. I feel like today is the first day of school (I mean, a girl has to really think about her "first day in the city" outfit.) I think I've got a good one planned, and can't wait to show y'all. I hope y'all have a fabulous Monday, and we'll see you tomorrow.



  1. Have fun on your first city day! I wear my heels to and from but my commute is a short 3 blocks.

  2. Welcome to Boston!! Enjoy! Cute shirt and it was probably a great price too!

  3. If 32 is the new 16, then 33 is the new 17, so I am in total agreement. LOVE the outfit!!And welcome to the city - we should meet for drinks after work one night this week, since you are in the 'hood!!
