I can’t resist an animal print. An actual animal print. Not leopard, tiger, or Dalmatian unless that animal appears on the garment in a way that at least somewhat resembles reality. So, when I saw these adorable penguins and then the collar, I knew this sweater would soon be in my closet.
A penguin sweater can definitely be a bit juvenile, so I wanted to create a look that still felt like something an adult would wear. I intended to wear my new black trousers (seen here), but I have a horrible habit of leaving clothes at the dry cleaners for way too long. My boyfriend jeans were an easy choice, and black pointed toe heels always feel sophisticated. I kept my accessories to a minimum, leaving the focus on the print.
