Wearing the Woodlands

Woodland creatures are so cute and cuddly even if the great majority of them are extremely pesky (raccoons, I'm looking at you). I think fall and winter are such great times to embrace more earthy things like raw wood, pinecones, evergreens, fall leaves, and the furry critters that are common in most backyards. Making these little guys a part of your fashion can be slightly quirky and edgy if it's done correctly, especially when vintage pieces come into play. I love old sketches of animals. I have an owl necklace that is a tiny painting that I adore as well as some other owl pieces. Owls are easy to come by nowadays, so branch out (pun intended) to some deer, rabbits, squirrels or foxes. Speaking of foxes, the coat above is adorable. If I had a little boy to dress, I'm pretty sure he would be a fox when the weather got colder.
Now, please note that when I say "wearing woodland creatures," this does not mean camouflage, Browning symbols, duck hunting t-shirts, Mossy Oak, or whatever else that is worn when hunting. Wearing those things on a regular basis is a whole different story. That story begins with "once upon a time there was a redneck..."
Here are some woodland creature cuties:

The auburn fur, cute little faces and beautiful flouncy tails make foxes the prettiest creatures in the woods.

Plaid, a squirrel and a scarf? Yes, please.

I think this vintage bracelet is very chic and beautiful despite the fact that it has an evil creature on it. Raccoons are cute, yes, but they are trouble. I got chased by one in college, and let's just say I'm lucky to be alive right now.

This deer sketch is the perfect statement ring to go with a casual large cable-knit sweater and boots.

Owls are my favorite of course...and this vintage clutch has such a pretty silhouette.

Another great sketch of bunnies to go along with the deer ring! Of course, these are great for Easter too.

This burned acorn engraving is earthy and subtle with such lovely brown tones.
