The Tiny Heart: Lovin' Leopard

10.17.2012

Lovin' Leopard



Sweater-F21 (similar), Skirt-Target (similar), Boots-Naturalizer, Nameplate-from 1996!

I got this leopard skirt on the clearance rack for $10 (same day as I got this dress). I was this close to putting it back on the rack. When I go shopping now, I make more of a conscious effort to only buy clothes that fit in with the rest of my wardrobe. Well, does anyone really need a leopard print mini skirt? The answer is always no, unless you're: a) Snooki, b) Peg Bundy, or c) Coco from Ice Loves Coco. Since neither of those three are exactly what I'd call style icons, the skirt almost went back. But then I thought for a minute about how leopard is the new neutral, all the different ways I could wear it, and it just had to be mine. Plus, did I mention it was 10 bucks? Can you even get a meal from McDonald's for that price?

  15. I love this look! I also love pairing leopard with a bright accent color like red or bright pink. You're totally right, it is becoming the new neutral!

  18. I love Leopard too. Who doesn't!!? That skirt is FAB and WOW from Forever 21. It looks real good with the emerald green top. =)

    Stop by when you get a chance. Ada. =)

  19. I love this look. Leopard and green look fab together. I think the skirt is long enough on you that it doesn't venture into Snooki/ Peg Bundy territory, especially paired with a more conservative top.

  60. Hah! While I totally agree with you on the style icon status of snookie and coco, I think this skirt was a great buy! It looks super stylish with the green sweater, green really seems to take a little of the sexy out of the leopard print and makes it more classic looking.
