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.
Pattern mixing in the fall is one of my favorite things. And although it isn’t fall yet, I could not resist sharing this stripe and leopard combination with you a little early. Especially these leopard ankle booties. Of all patterns, stripes and leopard are one of the easiest to experiment with. Today is all about pattern mixing with leopard and stripes.
It’s no secret I have a leopard obsession. But when I purchased these over the knee leopard boots, I think I took it to a different level. I’ve had these boots for a few months now, trying to find the perfect way to wear them. I knew it had to be styled with black and gold accessories, but I wanted the “perfect” dress. After searching and searching, I finally decided to look in one of the best places: my own closet! I have had this dress from J.Crew since college and it was always one of my favorites. It’s so simple but can be accessorized so many different ways! I realized that the “perfect” dress that I had spent months looking for was right under my nose! **Side note: I also haven’t worn the boots before now because of this wintry weather! As you can see with snow on the ground, I had to be super careful when walking!!**
I am so excited to continue to style these boots before winter is over, but I think two lessons were learned from this outfit: sometimes your closet can be the best store and basic pieces are easy to style with different accessories to create totally different looks!
