By the river at a local picnic
spot called Corra Lynn on
a clear, cool winter day.
This area is a very popular
swimming hole in the summer.
Today I am wearing
a Marlene Birger top,
(another animal print),
with my wide leg pants
by Nicola Waite.
I am a big fan of all manner
of animal print , for me it
plays the part of a neutral
I have added my favourite
beads and cream bangles.
My brown velvet hat
is by Crochetta and was
purchased from a local
hat shop in the 80s that
sadly is no more.
The lovely lady owner
passed away a few years ago
and I think of her every time
I wear one of her hats.
Sadly now in our town the
small owner operated shops
are disappearing rapidly, to be
replaced by chain stores.
Boots by Aquatalia,so comfy
but suede and fur for dry days only.
GLAMOUR , MY WAY, EVERDAY.
Joining with Patti at Visible Monday
Am with you on the animal prints, I just love them. You look superb. Those boots are fabulous!
Animal is so right for our winter, thankyou for visiting Elsie. Enjoy your week.
Great boots and wonderful use of animal prints, Jill. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!
Visible Monday always a joy, thank you so much for hosting Patti.
I have a pair of Aquatalia bots – wore them all winter long, they definitely are very comfy! But yours are also quite whimsical. You are very creative in your outfits!
Thank you for your kind comments, Natalia. I hope we will have some more dry weather so I can wear the boots more often, so far winter has been wet.
Great outfit! I especially love that hat! Looks like a good day for a picnic! 🙂
Thank you Laurie, it was a lovely clear day didn`t think of a picnic.
I feel the same way about animal print. I love everything about it and wish I had it on my shoes. You really have great taste. Classy but not boring.
I can see you in animal shoes Joni, thank you for visiting.
You know I'm not an animal print fan, but boy-oh-boy do you make it work like a charm. You look fab as usual, and I especially love your boots. Hope winter is treating you well, darling Jill!
Sometimes I feel I like animal print way too much specially in the winter. Raining again so the boots stay in the closet for now.Hope you have a good week, Jan.
You just have the best hats Jill and you wear them so well. That hat from an independent store is very special with its memories of the lovely lady who ran it. Great photo shoot location too
Pleased you like seeing my hat collection, thank you so much for visiting.
I'm with you! Animal print is a neutral, and you wear it with panache. Every piece which makes up your ensemble is gorgeous. Brava!
Thank you so much Judith for your generous comments. I`m sure my animal print collection seems to grow constantly.
Love the fur on the boots and the leopard print. Animal prints feel like neutrals to me, too. I shop at all kinds of different places, but local spots are always special. One of my favorite little shops closed recently. It's hard make a profit when you're paying overhead. I had a thrift store for about a year, and even with owning my own building, by the time I paid for electricity, heat, items to sell, store supplies, etc.it was hard. Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com
Retail is a difficult business to be in , it seems no matter where you are. Interesting to hear of your thrift store, sorry you had to close, hope you are happy with your decision and life is moving along. Thank you for visiting and for your kind comments.

I agree with you about the nautical stripes as a neutral, they are so usual in bringing looks together.Thank you my dear for your visit , enjoy your week.
