Safari

This is definitely more of a “fall” outfit than a “spring” outfit, but I just got this sweater and while we were enjoying some last coolness (I wouldn’t call it a cold snap) of the season, I had to wear it before it gets too hot. The rest of the outfit is pretty simple, though I did have some fun with the brooch. See, I wanted to add some accessory to the top, but it’s got a pretty busy print, and none of my brooches really stands out against it. Then I noticed the print is of safari animals – giraffes and zebras and so on – and what’s the other thing you can also find on a safari? Dung beetles, of course. It just happens that I also have a dung/scarab beetle brooch that stands out nicely against the brown top. It may not be that noticeable, but I still knew it’s there and got a kick out of it 🙂
