leopard love

I have always had a bit of an adoration for animal print. My only problem was that I thought it suited so many other people, but never thought that I could wear it in a practical way without looking like a character out of Austin Powers. I love leopard print with the tan and brown colors - it is so pretty! I took the plunge last year and finally got myself this cardigan. True love at first sight with this bad boy..and the love affair has kept going through the years. Speaking of love affairs, lets toss the leopard out the window for a new york minute and talk about these desert boots I just got. You see, my love for desert boots started when I saw the most amazing pair on the Madewell website, but I never got around to ordering any for myself. Enter Forever 21...who always saves the day, with prices that dont make you cry and beg for mercy. I am in love!

Have a fantastic rest of your Tuesday. I have had such a lovely week hanging out with my Dad. Love that guy so much. Au revoir sweet ones. xo

  1. Wowww, what a fierce cardigan! It looks great on you! I've also always been scared that I could never pull off animal print. My sister adores it and Erin likes it too... I think it looks really good on both of them, but I've always been a little bit too intimidated myself. But maybe I'll give it a shot some time in the future? :)

  5. This outfit is fierce! I like wearing heels every once in a while because it gives me a boost of confidence that sometimes we short(er) ladies need! I like the longer length of this cardi and the buttons on that top are so lady-like!

  12. Awesome outfit. I love the cardigan. I too just got into animal print. But it adds the right amount of sass to an outfit when done right. Like what you did here! :):)

  16. I've been loving your blog SOOO much these days and I don't even know why because I've always loved you and your blog! Maybe it's because of your adorable video and I feel like I know you more and everything is just so much more adorable now that we all know how adorable you, yourself, are!

  18. These photos are so gorgeous and I'm in love with your outfit. Great buy with the booties too, I wish I had a forever 21 near me. Apparently ordering online isn't very good as they take ages to deliver. Hope you're having a great week lovely xxx

  24. Oh Kate... can we swap hair?? PLEASE? It always looks so shiny and healthy and thick and beautiful. I'm jealous!

    This outfit is wonderful, I love all these items together. I have a similar cardigan I bought on a whim in Singapore that looks a little silly on me, but you've inspired me to wear it again :)

  29. I LOVE your necklace! I am still so hesitant with leopard print, I think what I have is too small of a print, which oddly enough seems to attract more attention in my mind.

  38. You look good in leopard Kate! I haven't given animal prints a try, but according to my mom, I'm following in her style footprints. If that's true, I'll have my leopard phase in about...15 years hahaha. :) I love that blouse of yours AND your new shoes! F21 really does save the day with cheap prices hehe!
