Giraffe, Giraffe!

I mentioned when I posted about my love of navy that I already had some of the items on my list.  Well, I also have been wearing them together, all over town.  I think this giraffe sweater is my favorite item in my wardrobe right now, I've been having to restrain myself from wearing it more than once a week.  The skirt was my only purchase from the Prabal Gurung line for Target and I love it, the cut is so flirty and fun.

Sweater - Banana Republic (no longer available, sad face) / Skirt - Prabal Gurung for Target / Flats - Target / Bracelet - Fancy Frills

This is probably a weird connection, but whenever I think of giraffes I think of an old Sesame Street record we had when I was really little.  There was a song called I Got Me a Rooster where they sing about different animals and make the animal noises.  When they get to giraffe they all have to pause because they can't think of what noise a giraffe makes.  It's weird the way certain things stick with you, because I don't think I could name another song I liked at age two.  

I'm in the middle of a really busy week, but somehow my weeks are only going to get crazier from here.  Not only am I taking a night class, but I also decided to sign up for a personal trainer two nights a week.  I think the main goal is to get some upper body strength, which has sadly disappeared since I moved in with Jeff since he now carries heavy things up the stairs for me and I no longer carry my groceries home from the store.  Also, my friend and I were talking about signing up for another canoe marathon (in case you missed it since you likely did, I used to compete in canoe marathons.) and I think I would probably die if I tried to do one again without any strength training.  Now I'm just hoping that working out with a trainer won't be too scary!

  7. I'm loving this outfit! Giraffes are my favorite animal, but I don't have anything with a giraffe print on it. I know what you mean by having a busy week. I can't believe it's only Tuesday! Good luck with your personal trainer. Power to you, because I know I would give up so soon. I have zero motivation to work out, especially now that it's getting colder!

  8. i'm sad the sweater is no longer available..its so cute!


  9. Omg this outfit is TOO cute! I never thought I'd be a person to wear animals on my clothing, but when they're this cute how do you say no?? And good for you for signing up with a trainer! Now that my boards are over, I definitely need to get my butt back to the gym. It's not even a weight thing- I just feel so out of shape! I used to be a competitive swimmer so I worked with a trainer a few times. They're not so scary :)
