Lace & Leopard

We’re back for another blogger collaboration and this time we are showing you “How To: Wear Animal Print!” You probably don’t need too much help in this department because leopard has definitely become a neutral, but just in case you need some outfit inspiration…

I wore this Lace & Leopard number to a blogger party this past Saturday night at the Dream Downtown. Love how my peplum top can tuck perfectly into higher-waisted skirts!

    Hi Jessica!

    I have the same lace skirt for LOFT in plum. Any suggestions on what to wear with it?

      Hi Hillary!

      What about a white/mustard striped tee? White/Navy would be nice, too. You could always wear a chambray shirt! Or wear a simple tee (tucked!) with a jean jacket? Leopard would also look great with the plum.

      The possibilities are ENDLESS! :)
