Fashion Friday: Meow.

I could not be happier that leopard print is the HOTNESS for fall. You know how much I love animal prints and feel that they are the easiest way to punch up a boring outfit (or room) and yet remain a neutral! So here are some picks for you that can help you either make a BIG statement with the print or just a teeny tiny one if your feeling timid. But I highly suggest you give it a try, even if you think you’ll hate it, because I’m 99% confident it’ll make you feel like quite the sassypants.

This Tahari skirt can be paired with a black dress shirt and heels and look professional- or turn up the volume with this little Alice & Olica dress!

Leopard doesn’t have to be brown and black- check out these hot pink varieties from Marc Jacobs and Marchesa (dying over the little sequin mini dress-pricey, but gorgeous and so fun!)
Don’t want to commit? These picks from Forever 21 are some subtle and bold options, but both are dirt cheap. (Wear the tone on tone tee under a blazer with a chunky necklace or the ruffle blouse with jeans or black pants, black heels and gold cuff bracelets!)
 
J.Crew is on board with a cardigan, and so is Tory Burch…
Shoes are a great way to add a little animal print without feeling like you’ve gone over the top.  Those Jimmy Choos down there, yeah, they are named the “Erin”- I kind of HAVE to have them now, right? Too bad I already bought the Ann Taylor calf hair ones on the top right!
Skinny or wide, a belt is another way to add just a dash of the wild:

Or perhaps just a bag or clutch?

And if your REALLY not sure about the leopard, you could always just get a pair of my new favorite underwear by Honeydew in a leopard print to keep it really on the DL!
Happy Friday everyone!!!
