Today I am so excited to be teaming up with Brittany at Loverly Grey to share how we style our leopard print! I have followed Brittany on Instagram for a while now and love her effortless style- she always knows how to mix edgy with feminine details and I LOVE that. I also love that she has her own unique style- I have so much respect for bloggers who stay true to themselves. Be sure to check out her post!! She is wearing THE CUTEST leopard sweater 💓

I feel like leopard is such a great way to spice things up, especially if you're like me and love an all black look. I was a little worried that this coat might be a bit 'much', but as soon as I tried it on I was in love! I plan to wear it with distressed jeans and a tee next, I think it's best to keep it simple when you wear any print, let the print be your 'statement' piece and just work around that :) (like I did with my leopard booties in this post). If you are looking for a sleek pair of black pants, I can't say enough good things about these skinny pants! I have had them for 4? years now and they still look and feel brand new, definitely worth the investment. Also, the tag says dry-clean only BUT I accidentally washed them in the washing machine once and they are totally fine lol. So that's how I wash them now FYI ;) 

The weather has been so gloomy lately! When these pics were snapped it was gray and drizzly (hello frizzy curls) and it's been like that for days. I am so ready for some sunshine. Sunday was my husband's birthday so we were super exciting and celebrated at home...we are very low key if you couldn't tell 🙈 I cooked breakfast for him complete with bday cinnamon rolls (and candles!) then I made his favorite homemade vegetable beef stew...and I'm not cooking for the rest of the week lol. He is a die-hard Patriots fan so there was also lots of football, joy joy! I am not a football girl, not even close. I'm like, what's on Hallmark?? Anyway, I love lazy Sundays and this one was perfect <3

PS: Brittany & I would love to know how your wear your leopard! Tag us on Instagram for a chance to be featured in an upcoming blog post of mine or let us know what your favorite pieces are on our Instagram posts <3
