Sporty Leopard



How come it is when you want something a LOT it's harder to make the decision to go for it? I'm talking here my inability to buy a white blazer, but it's the same way with a lot of things in my life. I guess it's probably fear of failure, or making of the wrong choice but jeez, deciding to buy a $30 white blazer at H&M doesn't seem like it should rank up there with going back to school for Interior Design.

In the meantime, I'm substituting other white toppers. I ended up really liking how this mesh hoodie gave my leopard a sporty edge. ROWR.

Anchor Blue hoodie (from high school? I swear I'm not a hoarder)
thrifted dress
Target belt
Sam Edelman booties

This is so cute! A little wild with the animal print, but as you said, sporty with the hoodie! I like it!

Leopard + hot pink = winner. I bought a 3/4-sleeve white blazer about a month and a half ago from The Limited which I HAD to have. It still has the tags on it. I am so stupid with purchases sometimes.

my reasoning about something (clothing especially), is that if you think about it that much, you should just buy it. if you can walk away from it and forget about it, it's not worth it. but if you write a blog post about it, you should probably just buy it. you deserve it!

I like the sportification (totally a real word that I just made up) of the leopard with the hoodie, but sweet baby Jesus, girl, get a white blazer. I have one. I rarely wear it, but it's there when I want to.

I do the same thing, but it is mostly with online shopping. I can be impulsive in person. When I have to pay shipping, it gets SERIOUS. Love the leopard and pink.

Took me years to buy a white blazer. I bought one at H&M last year.. I am slowly trying to get on board and mixy it up. This will be the year, I can feel it. That dress... LOVE.

Haha it's ok I'm pretty sure I have shoes from Junior High school still! Love the dress with the hot pink belt and wait-interior design? When is this happening?

Great and interesting!

I am loving that pop of pink too. I saw a white blazer on someone a couple of months ago and thought I must get one. Love them with jeans. Then realised I don't even wear my very comfy linen jacket but I guess that's a totally different look. Go for the white jacket!

awwwww!! that dress is so adorable!! loved the way you styled it...simple and chic :)

The Jones said...

Agreed...this gives an awesome sporty and casual look to your leopard...actually think i like that unique take better than the white blazer. But that said, girl--go get yourself one. It's not such a struggle :)

Just do it! Get the white blazer. I give you permission.

This dress is fab. Love the pink belt too.

I think this is one of my favorite of your outfits. You made a good call with the white mesh sweater.

Now, as far as that white blazer...I totally get where you're coming from. I bought one from F21 last Fall, and it's still unworn. Maybe when you bite the bullet and buy yours, I'll bite the bullet and WEAR mine! We can do a White Blazer post! LOL!

Francesca said...

Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

Animal prints can be overwhelming and not every one can pull them off toning it down with the light blue hoodie sweater was brilliant and then spicing it back up with the skinny pink belt - truly statement making. Well done.
Actually I think it is the pink belt that makes this most fashionable and unique. Oh I am so itching for a change in wardrobe myself, I left a job last fall, and since then its been winter clothes - with spring soon (we still have snow here) I am excited to do some more shopping. Great blog, enjoyed.

Do it!! Get your white blazer!! I'm afraid to buy blazers unless they're super cheap, because I just know I'm not going to wear them all that often because I don't like how they feel on me. Phew. That was a long sentence!

I love the sporty, edgy mix you have going on here! You're so pretty, Jenn!

Frannie Pantz said...

I had the same yearning for a white blazer when lo and behold I found one thrifting one day and hoarded it like a crazed loon to the check out. Keep looking--it will come to you. As for the look, I love it! Such a great way to wear leopard! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

DO IT! lol. i bought a white suit which sat in my closet for years because i was too scared to wear it. the white blazer is now my most used blazer. it goes with EVERYTHING! last year i did a week of posts wearing in everyday!

killer leopard here with the pink belt.

That's funny, I'm looking for a cream one at the moment, preferably in pleather...I'm going to check the Rack!

Are you going back to school for Interior Design (sorry if I missed that, I'm catching up on blogs tonight!)? My husband is in the program through Bellevue College. He LOVES it. (-:
