Do you wear animal prints?
Or do they scare you?
Sometimes an animal print trend can be overwhelming to style.
You risk looking a bit like a cougar-on-the-prowl.
(not that there is anything wrong with that)
Cougars get hungry and need to eat too.
The older I get the more my inner cougar is starting to look like this…
At this point you’ve over-tamed your inner cougar and quite frankly the only thing you’ll be getting is a passing belly rub and an little ear scratch…if you’re lucky.
Which is fine…if that’s what you’re after.
Me, personally…like Mrs. Robinson, I want a little more.
I refuse to believe all of my wild days are behind me.
Great segue into this shot! ; )

Wearing the animal print trend is only the tip of the iceberg. I’ve heard that 50 is the magic number for letting your Latex Lady loose.

Do you have any tricks to ensure that your inner animal isn’t too tamed with the passing years? Or are you happier to relax into your age with familiar, relaxed routine?
A Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US.
