A Total Barbara
There are three things I have in common with my granny, Barbara: Tiny hands, tiny feet and her love of animal print.
Sadly, my granny is no longer with us, but her fab fashion sense always will be - I can remember going into her closet with my cousins and playing dress up for hours! A dress up session donned with sequins, fur, gold heels and of course...animal print. A memory that I'll always cherish.
I have a lot of animal print, but for some reason this leopard top just reminds me of her...the look, the fabric, the way I feel when I wear it. A total Barbara. As you can see, my granny was a knock out and she knew it. I mean, who has a portrait painted of themselves? She was confidant, sexy and knew how to dress (I feel like I inherited at least one of the three!)
At the moment, my favorite way to style this top is with cropped jeans and sock booties. The fabric is light enough to take you well into spring - I can't wait to style it with cutoffs and a chunky bootie. I love how the tie in front creates a bit of a retro vibe, too. A little peak from a bralette underneath keeps me covered, but feeling like a total Barbara.
