Garfield in the Park


Let me tell you a little story. I'll set the scene for you–it's a warm fall day, and two fashion bloggers are out over their lunch break looking to snap some cute outfit photos before grabbing lunch at their favorite sub shop, when a moody cat on the prowl, with a striking resemblance to Garfield, appears. Since I'm an animal lover I can't resist walking over and petting this kitty, but this cat was definitely a interesting mix of adorable and a pet who forgot its morning Xanex. Trust me, you couldn't resist trying to be friends with this cat either.

If you look really close you can see my furry friend all the way down on the end of the wall

So it's no secret hat I'm a huge animal lover–even the most grouchy animal, I tend to love. So while I'm taking outfit photos, this Garfield-look alike comes strolling into the park and I have to go say hello (mid-photos). My newfound cat friend has a bizarre demeanor and one minute was cuddly and wanting pet and then the next he was taking swipes at me.

Mistake 1: trying to pet a cat wearing a skull and crossbones collar, this should have been my first indicator that he's moody.
Mistake 2: trying to repeatedly befriend this cat. I finally decided to walk away, the cat followed and proceeded to whack me in the arm mid photo.
Mistake 3: trying to still befriend the cat, who decided at that point to be cuddly and cute.

At least I walked away with cute photos! Cat - 1; Jaime - 0

One thing I love more than a cat who needs a prescription of Xanex is this Free People jacket. The peplum and military style make this the perfect fall jacket. I'm wearing a small and totally wish I had gotten the XS though. Free People always makes the best jackets and I'm more than happy to open my wallet each season and snag them!

  4. At first I thought you were talking about the leopard on your shoes (which i love BTW)
    He does look awfully cute---but we had one like that!! We called him bipolar!

    1. This cat was totally bipolar, but totally reminded me of the Sour Patch Kid commercials–sweet and sour. Ha!
