Leopard Genes

Last year, I bravely ordered a pricey leopard print swim suit from Victoria's Secret. It was a one-piece, retro-fit suit. You know, kind of like how Marilyn Monroe wore hers. But when I put it on at home, I knew I just couldn't pull it off. There are certain times when it's okay to step outside one's comfort zone for fashion. Swim time is not one of them. So I sent it back.

I am now looking through some old photos of my grandparents, and look what I found! The first is a picture of my gorgeous Grandma Carter, and the second is a picture of my sassy Great-Grandma Bell.


It's no wonder why I was drawn to that swim suit! It's in my genes! Maybe if I would have had a gold arm bracelet and leopard peep-toes, I would have been able to pull it off... What do you think?

Love it! You could have pulled it off, you can pull anything and everything off (I am jealous!)

That is awesome! I love how your grandma and great grandma both posed with their leopard print swim suits on! They both looked great!

Do you think leopard print will be in Calvins jeans too?
