OOTD: Because I'm "Hoppy!"

     Sweater: Delia's || Skirt: H&M || Cardigan: Deb || Shoes: DSW || Sunglasses: KMart || Headband: Charming Charlie || Necklace: {old} || Ring: {Jewelry boutique in my hometown} || Lips: Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in Pink Me Up

     So it's no secret that bunnies are my favorite animals (I once devoted a whole blog post to the matter!). I had a pet bunny named Lily from when I was in 6th grade until my junior year of high school, and she was the sweetest little thing. I can't wait to adopt another rabbit as soon as I'm done with college! My friends (and dad) constantly get texts from me of pictures of cute and cuddly rabbits with messages attached that say things such as "Can I please kidnap this and have it live with me in my dorm room next year?" Forget cat or dog lady- I'm a bunny lady all the way!

     Anyways, when I saw this adorable sweater at Delia's this past Black Friday, there was no question that I had to get it! It fit me perfectly, and I'm obsessed with the adorable little bunny on it! (Love how it has button eyes and a button nose.)  As I wrote in my last OOTD post, the weather in Maine this past week has been depressingly cold for this time of year, with temperatures everyday in the 50s and low 60s, and rainy most days as well. Definitely still sweater weather, but since it's so close to summer I don't want to be wearing all of my winter sweaters! That's why this bunny sweater is perfect- it has its sweater functions but definitely looks more spring-like then a lot of the other sweaters that I own! 

     I also want to talk quickly about this H&M body-con skirt that I'm wearing. I got this during my senior year of high school back when these body-con skirts were all the rage. I used to seriously live in this skirt! I had several body-con skirts that year but this was always my favorite, and one of the few that I still have! It is a little bit longer then most body-con skirts are which makes it more modest, and since it's plain black it matches everything. It's so easy to dress it up or down! Here's a throwback picture of me wearing this same skirt during my senior year of high school! Also pictured is my bestie Jules (We happened to be skirt twins that day!) and my hair that used to be naturally straight... ;-)

     Do you ever incorporate your favorite animal into your outfits?

  2. LOVE this girl :) The bunny is so adorable and chic! I love how you paired it with a cardigan. I also remember how popular body con skirts were--so crazy to think about fashion back then! And I definitely base some fashion buys off my favorite animal. I once bought a pair of shorts with ducks all over them!

  6. Your bunny sweater is adorable! This fall, I picked up so many puppy sweaters that it was unreal. I secretly wish it was still cool enough to wear them ;)
