Yellow Leopard

 Wore this animal print dress outfit today so I can participate in the 
Bloggers Do It Better 
event hosted by 

The inspiration had come from this on-line ad of lulu's website:

This reminded me to wear my animal print dress mom brought from their cruise vacation paired with this mustard jacket I had acquired from TJ Maxx early summer. 

 I realized last night in the shower that I packed too many outfits for this week. You see, the past two weeks I have been traveling on Sunday and packing 5 work day outfits. So when I make my list I pick 6 outfits total. But this week I traveled on a Monday so did not need a 6th outfit. I would have actually loved to eliminate today's combo as it was my least favorite among everything I packed but since I wanted to do the BDIB I couldn't. Oh well... 

I have been trying to find cool black feather earrings but have not come across a pair I really like. These brown ones I love but wish had black ones for this outfit. 

Dress - gift from Mom
Jacket - TJ Maxx
Earrings - Thread Show
Sandals - Boutique 9

Day 2 of my diet today. 
Breakfast: Tea, 1 egg, 1/2 banana and 1 toast
Lunch: 1 cup cottage cheese or tuna (I went half and half) and 8 saltine crackers!
Dinner: 2 beef franks, 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup carrots, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream!
I love the cafeterias at this company I am consulting at. They are so versatile and have everything. I get the tuna and the cottage cheese from the salad bar. 
I bought today's dinner during lunch. Had the grill place grill me two hot dogs with no buns. Used the lunch bar again for the broccoli (which they serve a bit steamed - perfection). They were out of the carrot stick cup, so I got some cucumbers and green peppers from the salad bar instead. And the banana. Bought extra saltine crackers for tomorrow's breakfast since they might not have them out during the morning time.
And again what a money saver. Today's total expense for *ALL* meals was under $15!!!
Surprisingly I did not feel hungry. But you have to realize I literally do not move all day other than to go use the bathroom or walk to the cafeteria. I am kind of missing the meetings from my first week that kept me walking all over this huge compound now. Plus my counterpart consultant left today so a bit lonely and getting so tired of my current task which is mind numbingly complex fee calculation testing. My eyes hurt from staring at spreadsheet figuring out why my numbers do not match!


  1. Love the dress and the pop of color! So stylish! :)


  2. Leopar ve sari uyumunu ben de cok seviyorum <3

    ..güzel sözlerin icin tsker


  3. I love the combination of animal print an yellow! So quirky! I also love your shoes! <3<3

  4. Yellow and leopard is a great combo! Also love your shoes with it. So fun!

    Have you tried Target for feather earrings? I saw some there not too long ago. Also, Macy's might have some.

  5. The yellow and leopard are a fantastic combo! Keeps the animal print nice and light and fun!! The print itself on the dress is a lovely leopard!

  6. nice look :)

    feel free to follow me:

  7. I really love this look! I would have never thought to put that shade of yellow with print...but it looks great! :)

  8. I think this look is great!! You look very put together and yet fun/young. I know what you mean about packing too much! I do that ALL THE TIME! I am getting ready to pack for Bangkok for a week and I KNOW I only need a few items I can mix and match. It is going to be so hot and humid there... not my favorite. Keep up the great work! Cheers!

  9. I always overpack. It is a sickness for me. I think you did a great job recreating the look from the picture. I love doing that. It is actually what inspired me to blog! I really like your look. I never think of pairing leopard with yellow. I need to start as it appeals to me quite much!

  10. Woo hoo hot mama! I'm the WORST packer on this planet, I wish I was as organized as you.
