Animal Print Overload

Animal print has always been a favourite of mine and like many others I think of it as a neutral in my wardrobe .  Can you ever overload on wearing animal print , not in my book anyway.

Today was one of those magical late Winter days with clear blue skies and milder temperatures . I took advantage of the milder weather to wear an old favourite. This animal print coat from George Gross must be at least 10 years old . Leopard print gloves , leopard print tights and sunnies continue the animal print theme.

I came across these leopard print tights in Hobart a few months ago and new they would work with many of my shoes but especially these Neo lace- ups.

The location for today’s post was Grindelwald , a Swiss style village and holiday resort built by a local business man in 1989. Behind me is the retirement village , certainly not for me but I can see the appeal for others.

The idea for Grindelwald came after a trip to Switzerland . On his return he created his own piece of Switzerland on land overlooking the Tamar River. I will admit that I always find these imitations rather tacky but then I detest imitations in any form be it fashion, cars , buildings ,etc.

The lookout behind me is Tamarhorn , with views over the river toward the mountains. I was rather pleased with myself walking up the rather steep path in heels . I will admit to using the hand rail on the way down.

It is that time of year that my garden is coming back to life as Winter draws to a close. I am so enjoying spending time in the garden pruning , planting and lots of weeding. I am sure for every plant coming through there must be triple the weeds. I have decided this Spring and Summer to rejuvenate both the structures in the garden but many of the garden beds too.

This pretty camellia was given to us by my late mother when we first moved into our house , nearly 40 years ago. I think of her every time I pick the blooms.

I am looking forward to the colours of Spring in my garden and also playing in my closet as the weather improves , as much as I enjoy Winter dressing about now I am ready for a change.

    Gasp of breath, you have an obi belt on! My recent obsession. It looks wonderful with your animal array. And the best is that bit of orangey-tan with your oxford heels. Goes so well with your hair. Black shoes would’ve instantly faded into the background. You’re a certified genius in putting it all together.
