Just like a lot of you, I was a Jersey Shore stan. Every Thursday Jerzday, I tuned in to watch Snooki, J. Woww, Pauly D, and the rest of the crew party in Seaside Heights and live their best GTL lives. Because the show became such a phenomenon, it’s no surprise that a lot of the trends we saw on ours TVs, translated to real life. Sure, I didn’t wear a Bump-It or cover myself in orange self-tanner, but what I did do was wear a shit ton of cheetah print. From dresses to tops to even spotted pants, I literally had it all. And looking back all I can do is cringe…I overdid it and I’m holding myself accountable, LOL. But, that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t still hold a special place in my heart.

Now that I’m in my 30s, I’ve found ways to incorporate animal print clothing and accessories into my wardrobe, in a much less aggressive way. I’m talking midi dresses, cute scrunchies, workout leggings, and so much more. Now that Jerzdays will be back in full swing (with a Sammi Sweetheart return!), it’s time to whip out your best cheetah print pieces with pride.
