So, I had one of those “omfg-i-look-like-a-crazy-cat-lady” moments a couple of days ago when I was wearing this outfit. I was standing at the registers in J.Crew on Michigan Ave. pulling out my wallet to pay while texting simultaneously and kind of froze when I realized it.
I was wearing a leopard shirt. My iPhone cover is leopard. My wallet is leopard. I was buying a leopard umbrella… and a leopard scarf. Four of these five items are from J.Crew so I blame them for my recent leopard infatuation influx. Don’t get me wrong, I think leopard is a fabulous neutral that goes with everything. I’m the biggest proponent of leopard in moderation! But how much is too much? Granted, two of these items were in my purse, two of these items were in my shopping bag, and just one was on my body, but still. When they were all out on the counter, I was a little embarrassed.
Anytime I find a great piece of leopard print, I usually buy it. So I’m kind of drowning in leopard print as of late. (I’m kind of the same way about the color orange, but that’s another story.) How do you balance your obsessions with a color or print without going overboard? I’d love to hear your strategies! (Extra points if you tell me you’re a “crazy-cat-lady,” too!) 🙂
*Note: I don’t have a cat. I just like my leopard.
