Leopard Love for Leap Year!

February 29, 2012

Happy Leap Day Dolls!

As my very last post for February, I wanted to show y’all a couple of cooler weather OOTDs I’ve worn recently before it gets to be full-fledged warm, spring weather. These outfits revolve around one of my favorite prints (besides stripes and polka dots): LEOPARD print!!! So tonight I thought I would show you what I would like to call a little leopard love…

So when I went shopping in the outlet malls in January I found a great deal on this adorable leopard print fur coat by Juicy Couture! The key to wearing such a statement piece as leopard print fur? Toning down the rest of your outfit…so I went with a monochromatic black on black look!

Coat: Juicy Couture
Black jeans: Tommy Hilfiger 
Heels: Guess
Black long sleeve shirt: H&M

On to my next favorite leopard print item I’ve worn recently…these leopard print heels by Gianni Bini:

Sigh…I love me a pair of sky-high heelz like nobody's business!! I paired mine with skinny black jeans and my cape (remember when I bought the cape on this shopping trip HERE?). 

Cape: Glimmer by J.J. Basics
Jeans: Tommy Hilfiger
Heels: Gianni Bini
By the way, leopard print can totally be worn into the spring! In fact, animal print jeans are having a moment (believe it or not) and these will be fun to wear into the spring. Also look for a lightweight leopard print scarf to wear with a tank top and jeans to transition into spring…or even leopard print ballet flats! BUT not all together...limit: one leopard print item per outfit please ;) 

In case you were looking for some leopard print inspired inspiration, here is a Polyvore I put together of some WILD items….
