The cooler temperatures this week have required me to wear a little more than Nike shorts and t-shirts, but I’m not quite ready to pull out my wool coats just yet. Layering is key in this kind of weather—I opted to wear a vest over a thin sweater along with a cheetah-print scarf. I don’t usually wear a lot of animal prints, but this particular scarf was the perfect way to transform this outfit.

As for my shoes, I would have worn boots if it were a bit cooler. I love the simplicity of the Tory Burch flats (and I love Tory Burch in general), but they are not comfortable until they are worn in. I stuffed my pair of patent Revas to the back of my closet and have been avoiding them like the plague since I last wore them. I had bought a new pair before I went to New York for Fashion Week (since I was sticking to an all-black wardrobe) and I quickly discovered that that was a stupid decision. In between shows, I would rip them off of my feet and slip into rubber flip flops, wincing in pain the entire time. At least all of the women (and some of the men, too…) who attended Fashion Week could relate to me—I can’t imagine wearing heels for 12 hours a day!
What is your favorite way to wear animal prints? I like simple touches—scarves or shoes!
Do you own Tory Burch flats? Any tricks to help break them in? I own two pairs and I swear they didn’t hurt as bad as the patent ones do!
