While perusing through my closet trying to come up with a new and exciting outfit to blog, it hit me that I hadn’t yet styled an outfit with one of my all-time favorite combinations–leopard print and red. The iconic print adds a dose of glamour to any outfit, and paired with a color as saturated and bold as red it looks stunning. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to break out the booties until next fall, but the weather has been disappointingly rainy and cold since I got home. The upside of this is I’m able to wear boots, tights and fur at the end of May! Hope you like.

Coat: H&M. Dress and Jewelry: Forever 21. Cardigan: American Eagle Outfitters. Boots: Rebels via DSW.

Cognac brown is one of my go-to neutral colors. Although I’m normally not a pattern-on-pattern kind of gal, I paired up my leopard print coat with a floral dress because of their matching colors. Please let me know what you think!

Also, some exciting news…

I got a new camera! This is a Canon Rebel T3 DSLR that I purchased from Best Buy. I’m so thrilled to be able to take higher quality photos for this blog. I’ve also been thinking about expanding into the realm of street style, which will be much easier with my new camera. We’ll see!

Coat and Sweater: vintage; Skirt, Belt and Jewelry: Forever 21; Heels: Aldo; Clutch: Topshop

I love to dress up! Always have. Unfortunately, being at college where I walk to class and work makes it difficult to pull off stiletto pumps on a daily basis. Nevertheless, when the mood strikes me, I like to pull out some heels and a vintage coat from my Mom’s closet. To keep this from looking overly dressy, I paired it with a chunky, animal print sweater. Let me know what you think!

Coat and Sweater: H&M, Skirt and Boots: Forever 21, Jewelry: Claires

I’ve been really into fur lately, so when I found this gigantic faux fur coat from H&M on sale for $20, I had to get it! The leopard skirt plays nicely with the fur and the peachy color of the sweater. I just purchased the boots (on sale for around $16), and I love them already. Paired with opaque tights, they make my legs look miles long. I normally am not a fan of mixing black and brown in an outfit, but because the skirt has both hues, it works! This is one of many reasons I love leopard print. Another reason is I have a thing for cats. Whether they’re big and wild, or small and fluffy like Teddy above, I love them!
