when i was small...

You know how there are certain things or incidents that will always make you smile from the bottom of your heart? Well, if I were to compile a top 10 list of things that make me smile, one of them is definitely old baby/ toddler pictures of myself. Not to be self-indulgent or anything, but who doesn't enjoy looking at their old pictures and reminiscing good times? Whether it's adoring the chubby limbs I once had, wishing I still had that perfect baby skin, or laughing at the "what was my mom thinking" matchy outfits, these old pictures are just really heartwarming every time I look at them. The other day as I was organizing my towering stacks of old photos and memorabilia, I found a small bunch of infant pictures that I've long forgotten, and among them there's one that got me laughing out loud for a good while - this one of me when I was two, all dolled up in leopard leggings and matching leopard figure Tee. Yea, what was my mom thinking putting a 2-year-old in all leopard?!! I'm sure I must have had no clue back then.
Fast forward 22 years to today, I have genuinely developed my love for leopard print (although I would still never wear that leopard Tee...). Here's my new interpretation of the timeless animal print, inspired by my 2-year-old outfit!
