Animal Instincts

Rodarte for Target dress, Target hat, Seychelles lace-up boots
Leopard is always a big trend, but right now it is HUGE. I see something in leopard I want it, I don't care if it is pencil sharpener, I must have it! So, I headed to Target the other day and snagged this Rodarte for Target dress and hat. I decided to get snazzy and try it with my new knee-highs. I think it gives the dress more edgy/girlie quirk than having it be ultra feminine.
The boyfriend and I went to Monterey Bay Aquarium on New Year's Day and had a fantastic time! I adore the sea otters and sea horses! I think looking at all the fish made us hungry because we headed straight to the local fish market and bought halibut and shrimp and whipped up a awesome dinner! Not a bad way to start the year!

I LOVED that hat when I saw it at Target! It reminded me so much of Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink:
