- Today’s post comes with a bonus pic from the year 2000. (At least I’m pretty sure 2000, maybe 1999?) I just had to include it 😉
I have been pretty into leopard accessories (namely in the form of shoes) over the past few years, but haven’t quite ventured into the clothing department. In large part due to flashbacks of the Gap Kids get up above. At Tuckernuck’s fall shopping event in the city though, a few of their employees were sporting leopard looks (this skirt and this dress) and I was inspired to get the skirt! I’m not sure that I’m ready for a fully leopard dress– although the Tuckernuck girls looked insanely chic.
One reason why I bought this skirt was how versatile it is. I plan on getting a lot of use out of it this fall/winter (and beyond). It’ll work with tights. With boots, flats, heels, and sneaks. I can wear it with black, white, green, camel, and grey tops. T-shirts, button-downs, blouses, and sweaters. Basically, what Jenna Lyons said is totally true: Leopard is a neutral.
I tried it on at home with a white button-up tied at the waist and sneakers and it immediately took on a whole new vibe.
I kept things really basic and simple this time around with a black long-sleeved perfect tee. I have these tees in so many colors. They’re great for layering and they fit in a nice way that makes them perfect for tucking in. Unlike a lot of other long sleeve t-shirts, these do not stretch out throughout the day!!
A gratuitous shot of the Chanel ballerinas I bought last year in Paris. I had a protective sole put on at a local cobbler and they’ve held up beautifully over the past year. There’s a little bit of scuffing (because I have a habit of accidentally kicking my other foot while walking lol), but other than that they look pretty brand new. (I will say though, if there is even a 1% chance of rain for the day, I do NOT wear them. Not willing to risk it. Would rather keep them beautiful!)
