It’s the new peanut butter and jelly.
Start telling people that and let’s see if it catches on.
So, after pinning all of the above pictures, I was trying to decide which one of them to recreate for my post today. And then I ran across this next little gem, and I knew I had my winner.
Because leopard and green is good.
But leopard and green WITH STRIPES?
All day long and twice on Sunday.
polyvore look HERE
I took the above graphic (from polyvore HERE) and added some arrows and labels just for fun.
The leopard adds that extra somethin’ somethin’ that kicks the outfit up a knotch. Or seven.
All of the accessories really make this outfit pop, don’t ya think?
You can find my exact pointy toe leopard flats c/o Piperlime (but sold out),
now at Macy’s HERE.
drusy rings c/o Kendra Scott HERE
s&d renegade bracelet HERE/ cushion cut bracelet c/o Accessory Concierge HERE/
kimberly necklace HERE
These pics make me happy!
Really REALLY happy!!!
The pointy toe leopard flats are FLAT OUT SASSY.
In this picture I traded out my pointy toe leopard flats for my Sam Edelman leopard flats from last year. Mine are square toe and no longer available, but the rounded toe are available HERE.
The Sam Edelman’s are known for their comfort.
I FEEL LIKE THIS LOOK IS SO ME!
And I love that it’s made up of just a lot of great basics that can be used in lots of other outfits!
IF YOU THINK THIS LOOK IS SOOO YOU TOO,
you’re in luck, because I found current like items!

The above outfit recreation showed you how the leopard took a basic outfit and made it CRAZY cute! Do you need some leopard in your life? I’ve got some options that will help you sass it up!
I adore every single item in the below collage.
And I need you to lean in and listen closely to me now girls.
If you don’t have at least 2 leopard pieces in your closet (for reference, I have 5: a scarf, a belt, a clutch, pointy toe flats, and square toe flats) you should think about adding something today! I know it’s scary at first (I had heart palpitations when I bought my first pair of leopard flats), but I promise you that you will wear your leopard items ALL THE TIME.
Your leopard pieces will become a GO TO for you for sure.
And I know that many of you added THIS jacket to your closet this week.
It is lightweight and not bulky at all.
This jacket would be soooo easy to throw on with jeans, with work-out gear, whatever!
AND LOOK AT THE LINING. HELLO!
Instructions online say you can just wash it at home on cold and just tumble dry on low. SCORE.
For size reference, I was wearing a small.
This is a great jacket. A REALLY great jacket. And at a fantastic price point for what it is!
Sooooo compact and light weight. Perfect for traveling.
Wear it on the plane or throw it in your suitcase.
I’m telling you, this is a good jacket.
I would mandate it if I could.
a) pointy toe leopard flat HERE
I have tried these on, and they are super comfortable!
The pointy toe is so chic, and they are a great price point!
b) Sam Edelman felicia flat HERE
Reviews are mixed on these, so make sure you read them!
This particular sling back sold out, but you can find a similar option HERE.
So, “b” is the pair I have.
When I blogged about these flats for the first time back in February, there were 47 5 Star Reviews!
Now there are 201 5 STAR REVIEWS. Whoah.
That’s a lot of people that love and adore these shoes.
One of my first comments this morning was from a teacher who endorses these shoes!
I have the Sam Edelman flats. I too had heart palpitations at the price.
But as a teacher who is on my feet all day…these are totally worth
it! They are a flat with support and com-fort-a-ble!!! And yes, 1/2
size up for me too! Love, love, love these babies!
love this shoe!! I have never had a flat that has been so comfortable
from the first time I put it on! There was no “break in” period needed
and I have received so many compliments on them. I recommend these shoes
highly!! I am going to buy another pair in a different
color…………..please try them you’ll be very happy you did.
They are a little pricey, but if you read the reviews, people say that they are totally worth it, and I would have to agree.
willing to last year (didn’t even have heart palpitations!) because I’d proven to myself that I would get my $
worth out of them by wearing my cheap Target ones (that were super cute but have since fallen apart) CONSTANTLY.
want to consider that!
FOR THE LOVE OF FASHION.
BUY A PAIR OF LEOPARD FLATS. And a belt. And a scarf.
And for Andrea…..there’s THIS.
OHHHH EMMMM GEEEEEEE.
I trust you’ll have this ordered for Griffin in the next 45 seconds.
AHHHHHHHH! It’s 8:30 on Friday morning and I just opened an e-mail that Anthropologie is FREE SHIP when you spend $150 with the code FS150
Click HERE for my Anthropologie post from Monday! Maybe there were some items you wanted to order but just couldn’t handle the shipping!
Remember I highlighted this tunic that I bought on Monday (even though it was on backorder)?!?
Well, here you go!
cognac knee high boots HERE
I mean, really. How cute would we be wearing this outfit!
I also got an e-mail from LOFT!
If there are things you’ve been wanting from LOFT, now is the time!
Not only is EVERYTHING 40% OFF, but you could TWO $25 savings cards for every $50 you spend. So they are basically paying you to shop.
Click HERE to shop.
First and foremost I recommend THESE. They make me look tall and skinny.
Need I say more?
I didn’t think so.
(I’m normally a size 4, but I’m always a size 2 in LOFT. I got these in a size 2.)
And why don’t you pair the above jeans with THIS top (or the cream colored one!).
This is a lot of Friday goodness girls!!!
Several weeks ago I received an e-mail from another blogger telling me she had written a post highlighting several different ways that she and one of her best friends had styled their MUST HAVE blardigans. Click HERE for the blog post to see what these girls have to say! (Jill’s friend Lauren has the ombre like me, and Jill has the marine/pewter).
You know I love my ombre.
But I had no idea that I needed the marine/pewter one until now.
LOOK HOW GREAT IT LOOKS WITH JEANS!
Click HERE for the marine/pewter.
(Just fyi: You’ll notice that the online version has a contrasting band on the edge, but a lot of people that have purchased these have told me that there’s doesn’t have the band.)
Here are Jill and Lauren! So cute!
You can find her site HERE.
Never heard of Jamberry Nails?
Well click HERE to find all of the publications Jamberry has been featured in (including In Style and People Style Watch)!
She sent me a fun polka-dot set to try, but I haven’t had a chance to try them yet since I’m up to my neck in packing up the house for our move next week! Ahhh!
She also sent me some fun facts about the product that I though you might like to know:
