I’ve finally begun doing my fall shopping and am first hitting all the my less expensive go to shops (Forever 21, H&M, etc). One thing on my list is a new fall coat and I found this great leopard coat at Forever 21 (right) that reminds me of a Zara coat (left) I previously put as one of my fall statement coat picks. I prefer the Forever 21 version, as it is a bit more fitted (with a hidden drawstring waist to adjust) and has a bit more style to it but the Zara version definitely works if you’re want a classic look.
Animal prints are been becoming more and more popular and not only as a signature “cougar” look. Animal prints add an element of fun to an otherwise simple outfit and with my most recent purchases I realize my closet is slowly becoming a zoo. Here are my most recent finds that may inspire you to embrace the trend as well.
I bought these leopard print shorts from Forever 21, which I pair with a black crop top, denim jacket, and black heels for a modern twist.
I found these great leopard wedges at J.Crew (available in stores) last week and have already worn them several times. They are incredibly versatile – they can dress up a casual outfit or spice up a simple black dress (as I did this past weekend in Vegas). Best part is that they are comfortable!
While wandering through the Palazzo shops in Vegas, I stopped by the Coach store and replaced my scrapped up iphone case with this Madison Ocelet animal print one. It’s fun and puts a smile on my face every time I pull out my phone.
I love the recent bright and neon yellow trend. Yellow always adds that nice pop of color to an outfit and puts me in a great mood. I’ve seen some amazing designer pieces, but have been keeping my eye out for some more affordable ones before making any big purchases. I’m especially excited for the Forever 21 bag to accent a nice black blazer and statement necklace or the Urban Outfitters necklace to add color to a pretty white dress.
