Z is for Zebra

Zebra print is so much fun whether you use it in fashion or in home decor it's just .......well fun!   A couple of months ago we brought my tween a pair of suspenders and they look like this -

Aren't they cool?   DD loves them and wears them a lot as she thinks they add a great bit of whimsy to her outfit and I think she's right.  

I don't think I would be able to pull them off, but they are pretty cool.

I also like the idea of buying a zebra scarf to use in my wardrobe - as a scarf or a belt or just tied around my handbag for an added accent.

Other ways to add a touch of zebra print to an outfit is by adding a bag or a pair of sunglasses.

There are lots more ways of adding a touch of zebra print to your outfit like zebra print jewelry, watches etc There are even hair bands in zebra print.

Wearing zebra print as a dress or top, however has to be done with care as most people cannot carry it off. I saw a poster of Lady Gaga wearing a zebra print top and it really did her no favors despite the fact that she has a great figure. This might be why so many zebra print fashion accessories are available because it's a way that anyone can add a little safari to their outfit.

This is the final post in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge and I must say it's been fun, but very tiring! I will be taking a couple of days off now, especially as it's a long weekend for me and I'll catch up with you all later in the week.
