Leopard and snakeskin


I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this brilliant blanket of yellow leaves along the sidewalk the other day! It may not have been the best backdrop against which to showcase this outfit, but I couldn't resist. I always find something to be giddy about in every season. Winter: snow! Spring: daffodils! Summer: heat! And in fall I love scenes like this, where the world looks like it's been showered in gold.

This outfit started with the shoes. Josh and I were walking past Urban Outfitters on Saturday and saw that they were having a 50% off sale items sale, so we went inside and I found these faux snakeskin loafers for only $10! When I got home I tried them out with a bunch of different outfits, and it was tricky at first to find anything besides jeans that went with them, but then I decided to just try the weirdest combination possible and put on my leopard pants, and I kind of liked the look! And yes, some people may think it's tacky to wear two animal prints together, but I would much rather be eclectic and adventurous than classy :)

  4. I LOVE this outfit so much. I can't believe you scored those shoes for $10 and that those pants are thrifted. So jealous. And I agree, those leaves are a perfect backdrop and so gorgeous. Yellow is my favorite color. :)

  5. I LOVE all the patterns you have going on here. It really works! Great styling, girl! I love doing animal prints together, personally. I think it's fun. I also love animal prints and have no problem getting weird looks from strangers. :)

    I can't believe A) those leaves! So fall! So Gorgeous! B) You got those pants from the Salvation Army, and C) those shoes were only 10$. Amazing on all fronts.

  9. Loving the combination of animal prints you did! My only critique(and this is merely personal preference) is that the pattern of the hat, and the chambray shirt feel out of place with the rest of the look.
