There was a time when animal prints were reserved for the ladies of Jersey Shore and Peg Bundy. Not anymore! In the last couple of seasons, we've seen animal print take on a new role from trashy-chic to just plain old chic. Leopard print (faux) fur coats and other outerwear were all the rage, but now that the sun has returned, what to do to still rock this wildly hot trend without over-heating? Sheer tops, breezy dresses and lightweight jackets are a great way to transition this safari-inspired trend from cooler weather to hot sunny days. Or stick to your usual neutrals and add pops of animal print in your accessories like heeled sandals or wedges and large roomy totes and versatile cross-body bags! Check out the slideshow for inspiration!

What if we told you that you could save money by keeping a pet elephant? That would just sound a little bit cray-cray, right? But the truth is ... you can - with this great home accessory!It's an elephant bank. Not to be confused with a piggy bank. And whether you actually want to store your coins in it or not, it looks darling and sweet sitting on your desk, a shelf or next to your television. Plus, you have to appreciate that it's wood-carved, hand-painted, and it's much larger than it looks in the picture. Not to mention, it has felt on the feet to protect the surface it sits on. So go on ... give in to your need to save by buying this lovely elephant. We'll call her Sally.
