While it wasn’t quite bare legs weather in New York this past weekend, I can’t complain about the abundance of sunshine! I wore this dress & denim jacket combo a few weeks ago when Mother Nature gave us a little preview of spring. When I was getting ready, I couldn’t decide between these leopard pumps or a pop-of-color (most likely in the form of my pink J.Crew pumps). I like the look of the leopard with the black, white, and denim, but I feel like the hot pink pumps would have popped more for photos in front of this mural.

Love that dress! I never would have thought to pair it with leopard print, but the combination is perfect!

I agree that the pink shoes would have popped more, but I think the leopard was a great choice for real life…love this look!

I have that ASOS dress and I’ve been itching to wear it. It’s just been too darn cold still! I hadn’t considered pairing it with leopard, but it’s such a fun look!
