Elephants

Top: OldNavy, Scarf: SamMoon, Pants: Joe Fresh for JCPenney, RayBans, Bracelets: Alex & Ani



Ever since I decorated CT's nursery in elephants I find myself loving them.  Suddenly it was really important that I get an elephant scarf and when I saw this one, I couldn't help myself.  It was in my cart and headed to my door within minutes.

My Papa collected elephants and growing up he would let me get all the elephants out of the armoir in the living room to play with them.  They were really delicate and it always made me feel special to get to play with them.  There were elephants made of marble, rock, glass, jade, and wood.  I lined them up and paraded them around the coffee table.

I'm not sure why or how Papa started collecting the elephants.  He and Mimi traveled quite a bit and I think he picked up elephants along the way.  When he passed away Mimi let us each choose a few to keep.  When it came time to decorate the nursery I knew I wanted it to be a compilation of sentimental pieces so I decided to choose the decor around 2 elephants I chose.

Is there an animal print you love?
