The Concrete Jungle of the Midwest

"Now you're in Chi-town...concrete jungle where dreams are made of..."

Ok, so some friends came to visit me & we of course pa-roused the Magnificent Mile. This is my spin on mixing animal prints. The trick was finding one or two cohesive elements within the different patterns.
In both the leopard & zebra pieces, there is the same base color - a muted gray - and the pattern color of black. Same thing with the ring. 

It was a little chillier that day, so the layered look was perfect! My boyfriend blazer paired with a wool blend sweater & scarf was just enough to keep me warm.
Oh yeah - and the soy pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks helped, too!

  2. Love this mix of the different animal prints! Now I'm going to have to try that. Although, I don't know if I have coordinating pieces... will have to look into that. - Katy
