Feature Friday: Work-Appropriate Wild Side

Happy Friday, GJU readers!

I'm so excited for today's featured fashionista: Christa M. She has an incredible sense of style and knowledge of fashion that she shares on her own fashion blog, Fresh Squeezed!

Today, Christa shows off her work-appropriate wild side by rocking the animal print trend. Check her out!

Full length shot-- I love her tights tucked into boots! 
The brown trim on her v-neck collar ties perfectly into the colors of the
animal print skirt. 
Close up of the colors. Such a great blend of earth tones and animal prints! Perfect for Fall :) 

Here's how Christa describes her outfit:

I was inspired by the animal print trend, which is one of the biggest ones this fall. While I can't rock the head-to-toe animal print, I think one piece per outfit is good! This skirt called out to me because it the print, its shape, and the material used. Paired with boots, it's perfect for work (where I wore this outfit) or running errands on the weekend. It's also easy to dress up with a pretty blouse and wedge booties!

Make it your own:

Sunglasses: Michael Kors (similar style here)
Necklace: Eat Pray Love by Dogeared (gift)
Tank: Splendid, Nordstrom Rack, $3
Shirt: J. Crew Factory Outlet, $21
Skirt: T. Tahari, Lord & Taylor, $20
Belt: Kenneth Cole
Tights: Mossimo for Target, Target
Boots: Matisse, Lord & Taylor
Watch: Michael Kors (gift)

Seriously.. she looks fierce! I think her point about wearing one statement animal print piece, versus a head-to-toe leopard/zebra/cow print suit, is more tasteful. 

I know some of you are intimated by such bold prints, but I hope this inspires you to try out animal prints this weekend!

Happy Halloween!
