Animal prints have always held a high ranking in my closet. Not only in tops, pants, handbags, and of course shoes but also in a couple of pieces of jewelry. Come to think of it, I'm rather animal print obsessed. As I write this I realize sitting at my dining room table with my laptop, my dining chairs are covered in leopard print velvet, and the reading chair over in the corner is covered in a faux fur leopard print throw. So you get the picture - definitely obsessed!
Express Sweater (old) similar here and here and this jacket is super cute // Splendid Pants similar here and here // Betsy Johnson Shoes (currently on sale for less than $40) I also love these for a bit more drama // Vince Camuto Clutch similar here and here // Baublebar Necklace // Tom Ford Sunnies
This is my "lounge suite leopard" outfit. I often give names to my outfits! The twist is the black and grey coloring of the leopard print. Black and grey is such an easy combo to work with and brings a fresh change to the same old brown and tan spots we so often see. Looks great with both white and blue jeans as well as smarter pants. The loose comfortable fit, long sleeves and soft cozy knit make this a comfy go-to for any impromptu gathering. Paired with the black velvet pom pom flats, how kitten-like can this cat get!
I'm a big fan of Splendid clothes, and I've had these trendy rayon jogger pants for a long time so I had to do some research to find a similar look which I've attached in the links above. They create an effortlessly stylish but casual look which can be dressed up with heels for a night out and flats or sandals for a weekend brunch.
I couldn't resist adding this Baublebar necklace to the look. It turns ordinary into extraordinary and elevates the overall look to above and beyond!
As always, thank you for joining me!
