Leopard + Leather-esque

This is one of my last few outfit posts from Chicago, which is kind of bittersweet, but I’ve been taking pictures in NYC so look out for those posts next week!

Leopard and leather is a tried and true combination in my book. (Remember this outfit?) These coated jeans aren’t exactly leather, but more of a leather-esque look.

My girlfriends and I went to dinner at Tavern on Rush a few weeks before I left. Pricey, yes, but great for people watching in the Viagra Triangle. We saw Jay Cutler (Bears QB) walking down the street as we were leaving.

Leopard Shirt: J.Crew // Coated Pants: Zara // Necklace: Bauble Bar // Shoes: Sam Edelman // Bag: J.Crew // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelets: Spike the Punch, H&M (similar) // Nails: Sally Hansen // Panther Ring: Max & Chloe (identical)

PS – A Bows & Sequins reader recently opened up a jewelry shop on Etsy called Minature! Mina is offering 15% off her entire store for Bows & Sequins readers with code: BIGAPPLE! Be sure to check her out… There is an awesome gold chain bracelet that is calling my name!
