Outfit // Leopard Scarf

Maroon-2The number of times I wear this leopard scarf a week is highly embarrassing, which is why it is surprising to discover I’ve only styled it one other way on here when I shared my favorite travel attire. This outfit is ridiculously easy and my go-to way to get dressed when I’m standing in front of my closet committing the typical “I have nothing to wear” tantrum – a blazer layered over a tank and tee combo topped off with a printed scarf, leggings, and boots. What’s your go-to outfit combination for fall?

Pretty Peplum

Floral_Peplum-1I picked up this floral blouse while we were in Turkey in March and have worn it multiple times since. The lightweight material, pretty print, and loose peplum fit make this top an easy go-to whenever I need to look semi put together yet want to be super comfortable. Paired with dark skinny denim, gold accessories, and flat sandals it is the perfect outfit for a day full of errands and an impromptu ice-cream date. Check back tomorrow to see how I wear this same floral top for date night.

Linking up with #YOLOMondays today!

Leather and Leopard

I swear I have never in my life worn so much leopard or red for that matter, must be the effects of having a blog that makes you step outside your comfort zone.  To answer a reader request for me to actually wear the suggested outfit from this post, I put together something similar that included items already in my closet: swapping the statement red color from the bottom to the top and adding a leather jacket to adjust for the cool March weather.  This outfit was perfectly comfortable for our daytime activities of running errands and finally seeing The Hunger Games yet dressy enough for a nighttime of steak dinner at Caminito Argentinian Grill and a birthday party.
