For the final week of #noveltyoutfitclub, we all took a trip to the zoo! The idea for this week was to wear your best animal themed outfits, and it didn’t have to just be animals you might expect to see in the zoo – all creatures great and small were welcome! Here’s a quick round up of the week.
My Outfits for “We’re Going To The Zoo!” Week
Day 1 – Kew Gardens Border Print
Day 2 – Floral Foxes
Day 3 – Off on Safari!
Day 4 – Penguins with Balloons!
Day 5 – Tropical Birds
Day 6 – More Fantastic Foxes!
Day 7 – Lions & Tigers!
Highlights from “We’re Going To The Zoo!” Week
We saw all manner of animals, birds and insects this week! There were…
We saw some more domestic creatures aswell… cats, mice, birds, bunnies, ducks and creepy crawlies! (Clockwise from top: @honeycreweller, @katieloveskittycats, @therealfairymary, @vendouris, @miss_strawberry_shortgirl, @lynnie_bop)
And to finish off, there were also some incredible outfits featuring a whole host of animals in one go! Special mention to Char for her Noah’s Ark themed outfit on the bottom left, such a good idea! (Clockwise from top: @j9shappiness, @chimpsteaparty, @kezziesquirrel, @dinoprincesschar)
So, that brings us to the end of the first #noveltyoutfitclub! There have been over 400 pictures shared on the tag on Instagram and counting, so do have a look through the full gallery here. It has been such a fun month and I’m so glad so many people joined in! I must confess I was a little nervous it might just be me posting my outfits each day, which wouldn’t have been half as much fun, so thank you for getting on board with my idea!! I know these challenges can be hard to keep up with, and it takes a fair amount of time and planning, so I really appreciate the effort of everyone who has taken part. Since all of the algorithm changes to Instagram I seem to find it much harder to keep up with what’s going on, and find I spend less time chatting and engaging with the amazing creative community on Instagram than I used to, so this has been a great way to reconnect. I’ve discovered lots of great new Instagram accounts to follow and feel very inspired by all of the amazing outfits I’ve seen and the different interpretations of each theme, and I’ve added so so many fabrics and accessories to my wish list!!
I hope people will continue to use the hashtag to share novelty outfits and fun accessories even though the weekly challenges have finished, and since this has been so much fun I *might* plan a week long festive edition of #noveltyoutfitclub in December too!
