Oh, leopard. How I love you so! With the unofficial arrival of fall, it’s the perfect opportunity to sift through your closet and bring out all your leopard pieces. Although animal print can technically be worn anytime of the year, there is something about the fall that makes me so eager to wear this print. As soon as I laid eyes on this leopard blazer, I knew it had my name written all over it.
Leopard Blazer: cabi c/o | Tunic: Lush (under $30!) | Jeans: cabi, last season (similar style) | Sandals: BP. | Bag: Chanel (similar style under $300) | Earrings: Sheila Fajl | Sunglasses: Le Specs | Lipstick: #09
A few months ago when I had the opportunity to attend cabi’s blogger day (read the full post here) I instantly fell in love with this blazer when the cabi team revealed the latest collection. The print, longer fit and elastic cross details in the back were all too perfect for words. In this post and in the photo shoot below (more on that in a second) I paired it with black jeans and pants. But, if you wanted to make this jacket into a traditional suit, the leopard pants are also available here and leopard skirt here. With the jacket’s super soft and comfortable ponte fabric, you can easily take this blazer from the office to happy hour to weekends!
cabi’s #FearlessStyle Campaign
While out in LA for cabi’s Blogger Day, we were asked what #FearlessStyle meant to us as style influencers. As you can see from some of the shots and video below, I chose “classically tamed” to describe my style. The English minor and writer in me couldn’t help but use a play on the “tamed” expression since I was sporting a leopard jacket! If you have been following along for awhile, you probably already know that my style is classic. However, I do love adding bright patterns, prints and trendy items to my look and “tame” those pieces with classic and tailored pieces. Whether it’s with the white tunic and black jeans in this post or the white pleated blouse and high-waisted pants from the photo shoot, these classic pieces compliment this leopard blazer perfectly. Check out the photos from the shoot and the video below! You can read the entire post on cabi’s blog here.
